The best routes by car in Majorca
Have you already decided to rent a car in Majorca, do you want to do the most interesting routes around this magical island? We show you some of the best ones so that you can start planning your trip.
Es Trenc – Es Caragol Beach – Ses Salines Lighthouse
The first proposal is for lovers of crystal-clear waters and idyllic beaches. If you are one of those who have travelled to Majorca looking for that picture-postcard landscape, this route is perfect for you. The first destination is Es Trenc beach in the town of Campos: an area with no tourist services and surrounded by pine trees. In any case, you will find a good car park where you can leave your vehicle and a division of three beaches to enjoy yourself to the full. Afterwards, we invite you to go to Es Caragol, an eternal white sandy beach where you will want to get lost. If you want to finish with a better taste in your mouth, end the route by going to the Ses Salines lighthouse for magnificent views.
Deià – Sóller – Sa Calobra
The good thing about this route is that it starts in Cala Deià, so you can get to this destination early and escape the excess of tourists that congregate throughout the day – it’s beautiful! Afterwards, the ideal thing to do is to make a short stop in the village, which has a lot of charm. This is before heading to the next destination, which is Sóller. Here you will be surprised by the valley of oranges that you will find on your arrival and, once you get there, you will discover a great place to go sightseeing and have a coffee. Finally, you will continue on to Sa Calobra, where you will find a spectacle full of cliffs, beaches and all kinds of natural events.
Caves of Artá – Cala Millor
There are wonderful caves on this island that are very famous and filled with tourists. However, the Artá Caves offer us the same splendour without the need to deal with so much overcrowding. It is not a minor visit, as the highest stalactite in Europe can be found here. After this you can rest and breathe fresh air, where to do it? On the beach of Cala Millor. It is located in the context of a protected natural area, has a large extension and shows you a family atmosphere perfect for relaxing.
Route to the rural area of the island
Majorca also has a lot to offer in its rural area, so this route will help you to get to know a different side of the island, to take a break from the beach or to plan a different kind of day. Our suggestion is to visit the most authentic and charming villages, starting with Pina, then Costitx, Maria de la Salut, Ariany and Montuiri. On the way you can also stop in other intermediate villages with beautiful windmills, old buildings or wineries to discover.
