Serra de Tramuntana#1 in Best Things To Do in Mallorca
Price & Hours
A UNESCO World Heritage site, Serra de Tramuntana ("mountains of the north wind") are located on Mallorca's northern coast and offer travelers the chance to hike, cycle or drive through a landscape of deep gorges, jaw-dropping cliffs and the highest peak in Mallorca, Puig Major.
Recent travelers said the experience of hiking through fragrant lemon and orange groves, olive orchards and awe-inspiring coastal views was "captivating." If you're driving rather than walking through Serra de Tramuntana, some travelers suggested taking your time – you'll be sharing the narrow winding roads with cyclists.
You can access the mountain trails from Port de Soller, which you can reach via a train that departs from Palma's Placa d'Espanya and a wooden tram that connects the Soller railway station with Port de Soller. The trip north will take a little more than an hour. For more information, visit the Serra de Tramuntana website or download this PDF with maps and information on various hikes.

#2 Playa de Muro
White sands and clear, shallow waters, along with a handful of quality restaurants and hotels, make Playa de Muro a favorite strip of sand among travelers. Aside from its safe waters, Playa de Muro is also a hit thanks to its amenities, including umbrellas, restroom facilities and access for those with disabilities. And its proximity to the Parc Natural de s'Albufera de Mallorca, a nature preserve known to draw bird watchers from all over Europe, means you can hit up a trail when you're ready for a change of scenery.
Visitors also appreciated Playa de Muro's more rustic feel when compared to the beaches in Alcúdia or elsewhere on the island. Others highlight the vendors selling fresh fruit, such as coconut, watermelon and mango.
