Located on the southern slopes of the Tramuntana Mountains, Bunyola has 5000 hectares of protected terrain, declared a nature area of special interest. Land of contrasts and varied scenery, in Bunyola, virtually flat lands, such as the area which lies closest to Palma, exist side by side with mountainous terrain.

The highest points correspond to the summits of the Alfàbia Mountains and reach over 1000 metres high. Furthermore, the central area of the municipality is made up of the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains. The main points of interest include the Commune of Bunyola, a publicly-owned farm carpeted with Mallorca´s largest expanse of pine and holm oak trees, which extends for over 800 hectares.

The municipality´s main waterways are the torrent of Coanegra, where Es Freu spring is located, and the torrent of Bunyola, which empties into Gros Torrent of Palma.
