SHARE ROUTE

From the lighthouse at Cala Figuera to the lighthouse at Portopí. You will cover the entire coast belonging to the municipality of Calvià, you will discover its different beaches and the fortified towers that protected Mallorca from pirate attacks.

Starting at the lighthouse at Cala Figuera, in the marine reserve in the southeast of Mallorca, we will find a dry and rocky area where we will see real cliffs and be able to enjoy a beautiful sunset. In addition, on this part of the route we will be able to find the old ammunition depot in Cala Figuera.

We will leave the area of Cala Figuera and we will continue our route through the different small coves that are difficult to access, such as Playa del Mago and Portalls Vells, but which are highly recommended places for going swimming.

We will enter the area of Magaluf and Palmanova, which are well-established as the heart of tourism in Mallorca and are a success for the municipality of Calvià year after year.

Portals Nous is a recommended place to visit both for its marina and its chapel since you will enjoy sea views and views of the Bay of Palma. If you happen to see a large cruise ship on the horizon, we recommend that you stay to watch it arrive.

And finally, we will enter the municipality of Palma de Mallorca, passing by a lookout with views of Cala Major and Marivent Palace, the summer residence of the Kings of Spain. We will finish our walk at the point of departure, the military museum Castell de Sant Carles, where we will see one of the oldest lighthouses in the world, the Portopí Lighthouse.
