Begin your hiking trip from a departure point in central Palma in the morning. You’ll travel by local bus to the starting for the hike, walking along a historic trail once used by local postmen to travel between Mallorcan villages. The walk is fairly easy and follows a well-marked trail.
Continue to put one foot in the front of the other as you admire the mountain scenery. As you walk, you’ll stop to enjoy mountain views and listen as your guide shares details about the island’s native plants. Soon you’ll arrive in the village of Serra Tramuntana, a hamlet known for its Arab-influenced architecture and rich traditions as a farming community.
The hike then proceeds to a hidden beach favored by Mallorcan locals. While most tourists content themselves with the massive strips of sand found along the island’s south, this smaller shore offers a more intimate, Mallorcan feel. Cool off from the hike by enjoying the sea and the sun, and dig into a tasty beach-side picnic of typical Mallorcan delicacies. You’ll enjoy dishes like ‘cocas de trampó,’ and ‘empandas,’ finishing off the meal with typical sweets like ‘gató’ with almonds and ‘ensaimadas.’ The food comes from a historic island bakery, ensuring an authentic culinary experience.
Depending on the time of year, you might finish your visit with a swim. Even during the colder winter months, this secluded stretch of coast is still perfect for soaking up a few rays of sun. In the afternoon you’ll board another local bus which will return you back to Palma.
