Outdoor Adventures in Mallorca

By Viator, February 2018

Five times larger than Ibiza and dominated by a rugged mountain range, Mallorca was made for outdoor adventure. Many visitors head straight to the beach, but there's plenty more to see both on the coast and inland. See below for your options.

In the Water
The Palma Islands are famous for their beaches and beautiful waters, so they are must-have items on any itinerary. One of the most relaxing ways to experience the coast is via a sailing trip—whether aboard a single hull or catamaran, sailing adventures cover a lot of the island in just a short amount of time, with ample opportunity for swimming, sun bathing, snorkeling, and dolphin watching. Motorized boats take visitors even further out to explore secluded swim spots, snorkeling sites, sea caves, and fishing villages. Mallorca is also prime for kayaking and standup paddleboarding, cliff-jumping, and scuba diving.

On Land
Given the island's size, it's no surprise that land-based adventures abound on Mallorca. See the main sights of Palma de Mallorca on foot or by bike, or hop on a scooter to explore further afield. Guided quad tours and horseback rides let travelers explore rugged areas inaccessible to cars and street bikes. The Serra de Tramuntana Mountain Range forms the backbone of the island, creating a picturesque playground for adrenaline-fueled adventures. Hike to Smuggler's Cove on the La Victoria peninsula or trek through Torrent de Pareis canyon for some of Mallorca's best views.

From Above
Seeing Mallorca from above is truly a rush, especially when soaring high above the hills and sea on a tandem paraglide. Parasailing offers a similar feeling, with even more bird's-eye views of the Mediterranean Sea, but you don't need to be an adrenaline junkie to experience Mallorca from the sky. Gentle hot air balloon rides offer unobstructed views of the island below—it's a tranquil yet thrilling way to see the island.

Underground
Mallorca is famous for its underground cave systems, created by millennia of water erosion from Mediterranean waves crashing into the rocky coast. Among the most famous formations is the Cavern of the Dragon (Cuevas del Drach), known for its eerie underground lake. Other caves, such as the Cova de Coloms, are only accessible from the sea, requiring adventurous visitors to don a wetsuit and crawl, swim, walk, and climb through these subterranean spaces. Since this particular cave system doesn't require visitors to go underwater, it's a perfect introduction to sea caving, even for beginners and kids.
