SHARE ROUTE

Travelling the coast of Mallora is a luxury. You will encounter a mix of beaches and cliffs that will take your breath away. On this route, we will travel from the beautiful lighthouse at Porto Colom to the northernmost point on this route, the lighthouse at Capdepera, in order to end the route by enjoying some beautiful views.

We will leave the small city center of Porto Colom and its fantastic port in order to acquaint ourselves with the different coves to be found on this route. It is a varied landscape full of pine trees, but it is much stonier and drier than the other side of Mallorca. The small bays, with their golden sand and turquoise waters, will leave us in love with all of them.

We will come to one of the most well-known ports in Mallorca, Porto Cristo, which has a wide range of gastronomic experiences. On this leg of the route you will also be able to visit the Caves of Drach that were discovered in 1896.

You will cover S’Illot – Cala Morlanda and Cala Millor. You will enjoy a lovely stroll along the waterfront towards the Punta de n’Amer castle. We cannot leave without visiting the municipality of Capdepera and seeing its famous castle, from which there are excellent sea views to be seen. To finish, we will come to one of the most beautiful lighthouses in Mallorca, the lighthouse at Capdepera, from which you will be able to see Menorca with no problem.
