We offer you the six best cycling routes in Mallorca perfect for you to know the charms of this island while enjoying your great passion and staying in one of the fully equipped JS hotels.
Puerto de Alcúdia – Sa Calobra
From our JS Sol de Alcúdia hotel you can enjoy a good and quite difficult cycling route through the Serra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in the category of cultural landscape. Once the route has begun, you will arrive at the beautiful village of Pollensa and travel a few kilometres until you start the climb to the Coll de Femenia. For 7 kilometers you will marvel at its impressive mountain views, accompanied by a constant slope. At kilometre 13, you will start a short descent that will take you to the famous Monastery of Lluc.
After several more kilometres uphill and then a descent, you will reach Sa Calobra. This road is a must for cyclists due to its breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and the Mallorcan mountains. The return will be just as demanding, but at the same time, just as comforting.
Playa de Muro – Orient
The second of these 6 cycling routes in Mallorca is a 110 km route designed for cyclists of all levels. It will enable you to admire mountain villages that preserve their original charm and structure. The starting point will be the JS Alcudi-Mar on Playa de Muro, which is characterized by its aquamarine waters and fine sand. You will pedal along roads and paths with few bumps until you reach Santa María del Camí. During the route, you can admire the charm of villages such as Buger, Campanet and Lloseta, to make one last effort to reach Orient, in the wonderful Serra de Tramuntana.
Playa de Palma – Sanctuary of Cura
Playa de Palma, close to JS Palma Stay, will be the starting point of a great route for beginners. 74 kilometres where you can admire the beauty of the beach and then face a small slope that will finally lead to a more favourable terrain until you reach Llucmajor. The ascent to the Monastery of Cura is the most complicated point of this route, but it is within reach of anyone who puts a little effort into it.
Puerto de Alcúdia – North of Mallorca
This cycling route in Mallorca for beginners and amateurs consists of 66 kilometers full of beauty. Leaving the JS Sol de Alcúdia hotel you will arrive at the magnificent village of Pollensa, one of the favorite places of the tourists who visit the island. The next destination will be Campanet, famous for its impressive caves. Finally, you will cross the village of Muro to reach the coastal town of Can Picafort and cycle the last kilometres on your way to the hotel.
Playa de Muro – Betlem
If what you want is a relaxed route where you can admire the beauty of the Majorcan beaches, this is your best option. Leaving the JS Alcudi-Mar you will cross almost all the bay of Alcudia. After several kilometres you will reach the coast of Artà, popular for its beautiful cliffs. You will also enjoy the coastal town of Colònia de Sant Pere, until you reach Betlem. You can also combine this route with a visit to the Finca Pública de Son Real, which is characterised by its concentration of prehistoric remains.
Can Pastilla- Andratx
Only suitable for the most dedicated cyclists, this route will require a lot of effort.
