Those who enjoy walking have the opportunity to enjoy many spectacular routes on Mallorca, with the intense blue of the sea always providing a breathtaking backdrop. Most routes are located in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range on the island´s north coast, which is where the highest peaks and most spectacular torrents are found. Another popular walking zone is the Serra de Llevant range of hills, in the east of Mallorca, where the peaks are lower and gentler. There are also many routes along the coast, many of which lead to unspoilt beaches, such as the beaches of Artà in the Llevant Natural Park and the route along the unspoilt beaches of Manacor.

Cycling in Mallorca
Mallorca has an extensive network of secondary roads and country lanes which are well signposted and in good condition, some of which have been specially adapted for bikes, making the island of Mallorca the ideal destination for cyclists. In the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range there are plenty of routes for road cyclists and mountain bikers. On the east of Mallorca is the range of hills of the Serra de Llevant, which doesn´t reach the heights of the Serra de Tramuntana but which does have some mountain roads which are suitable for cycling. The centre of the island is fairly flat.
Some hotels on Mallroca have facilities which are geared up for cyclists, with garages for bikes and special menus; these take in professional teams as well as amateur cyclists of all ages, who fill the island´s roads in spring.
At just about every tourist resort on Mallorca it is possible to hire bikes and cycle along the seafront, where the terrain is generally flat.
