Sierra de Tramuntana
The Sierra de Tramuntana is a group of mountains declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. It is a mountain range located on the northern fringe of Palma de Mallorca and goes from Andratx to the Cape of Formentor.
Unquestionably, this mountain range has one of the best viewpoints in Mallorca and apart from being able to enjoy its flora, fauna and all its sights, you can also do various activities such as hiking, climbing and horseback riding or cycling.
Among these mountains there are a range of several villages such as Valldemosa, Deiá, Sóller, Pollença or Banyalbufar, villages that we recommend to visit and taste some dishes of their native cuisine.
The caves of Mallorca
Throughout this island there are many caves and inland caves near the best beaches, many of them unknown and possibly never to be discovered. All these caves are part of the essence of the island but only some can be visited.
Very close to Insotel Cala Mandia Resort & Spa, are located the Drach caves, the most famous on the island. In its inner lake there is a light show and live music that make it the most wonderful landscape of the Balearic Islands.
Other caves you should visit are the Arta caves, located east of this beautiful island. They are the only ones that have their entrance by the sea and their imposing size makes them unique.
Mallorca is an island full of nature and natural parks, so if what you are looking for are things to do near the beach of trenc, we recommend you visit one of these natural parks, where you can do outdoor activities so much in family as with friends.
Sa Dragonera is a small island located southwest of the island of Mallorca along with the islands of Pantaleu and Mitjana, these three constitute the Natural Park of Sa Dragonera.
The island of Sa Dragonera has boats that make several departures during the day so you can visit this part of the wonderful natural park. In addition, it is one of the easiest landscapes in Mallorca, as it can be enjoyed in its entirety in less than a day.
Albufera of Mallorca
This natural park is one of the most desired parks in Mallorca. It is located in the northern part of the island, specifically in the bay of Alcúdia. Its origins are remote and its state has changed both on the surface and in properties according to the variations in sea level. The natural park of Albufera is one of the most interesting landscapes of Mallorca to visit both as a couple, with friends or with the little ones.
The Cathedral of Mallorca, also known as Santa María Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca or “La Seu”, is located Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the island. It is one of the few religious
monuments that look out to sea and that has been declared a historical-artistic monument.
The activities that can be done in this cathedral are diverse, we recommend a visit to the Museum of Mallorca Cathedral, enjoy the beautiful rose window and observe the magnificent composition of a pure Catalan Gothic architectural work.
Last but not least, we suggest you visit the Bellver Castle, which is located three kilometres from the capital. In the same castle, guided visits are made so that visitors can discover all the stories that their massive walls hide.
