Attractions in and around Majorca city

Coves del Drac ( Visit Site )

Coves del Drac or Dragon Caves are located in the municipality of Manacor south of the village of Porto Cristo and have become one of the top tourist attractions in Majorca. Open throughout the year, there is a small entrance fee charged to enter the caves. The guides inside explain the interpretation of the bizarre stalactite formations in four different languages. The whole one-hour tour ends up with a violin concert on
Lake Martel and visitors can take a boat ride steered by a gondolier.

Serra de Tramuntana ( Visit Site )

'Mountains of the north wind', the Serra de Tramuntana is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain range runs from southwest to the northeast region, thus forming the northern backbone of the Spanish Island of Majorca. Around 88 km long, this range runs from Andratx to Pollenca, with pine covered trees and the rocky protrusion of Cap de Formentor and Sa Dragonera along with peaks mostly concentrated around Lluc area, with the highest in the Puig Major and Puig Massanella. As one climbs higher, the forested hills devolve into barren land and peaks. One can get the best view on foot with the smell of rosemary, sound of the sheep bells, the fresh air, the marvel at pine trees growing through the red rock and the lovely Majorcan village houses. The drive through these mountains gets exciting from Soller to Lluc through tunnels and ravine making its way between the Puig Major and Puig Massanella. The roads are dangerous and driving through the parade of the hairpin bends and calls in for total concentration.

Ferrocarril de Sóller ( Visit Site )

Ferrocarril de Sóller is a train powered by electric locomotive, created on a time machine in 1895 by H.G. Wells and is the only one of its type ever. Moves on its narrow gauge track with beautiful landscapes on the sides, the Soller railway takes you to the north side of Majorca, across the plains and then into the mountains crossing thirteen tunnels of Serra de Tramuntana to reach the valley of Soller. The whole journey starts from Palma de Mallorca and it takes exactly one hour
to complete the track.

Sa Calobra ( Visit Site )

Sa Calobra is a beautiful bay on the northern coast of Majorca. The journey to the Sa Calobra makes its way through a twisting road around Puig Major, which loops under it turning 270 degrees at a point in just 12 km after Puig Major. The easiest way is by boat that goes from Port de Soller passing many isolated bays along with excellent views of Puig Major. Once there, a short walk through a tunnel leads to the Torrent de Pareis, a spectacular ravine that devolves
in a small pebble beach.
