ABOUT MALLORCA
Add to Favourites

“Domina les altures i aguaita l’infinit”, "Master the heights and stalk the infinite", a literal translation of an excerpt from ‘El Pi de Formentor’, by Pollença’s poet Miquel Costa i Llobera; dazzling words that could well be talking about any of the hundreds of viewpoints we have in Mallorca.

 

The viewpoints are places where you can contemplate beautiful views from an elevated point. In Mallorca we have many of them, many with views of the Mediterranean, but many others with views of the interior of the island and the Serra de Tramuntana such as: Carretera de sa Calobra, Puig de Randa, Puig de Santa Magdalena or Es Gorg Blau. In addition, being many villages located on hilltops, we find these havens of peace in almost all locations with this feature. To find them, the simplest is to look where is their church located.

 

Some of these vantage points are marked by specialized guides as a must see. Not surprisingly, they offer a wonderful show that varies as the sun does its journey, offering postcard sunrises and sunsets, depending on its location. Here are some of the most famous viewpoints on the island.

 

 

Es Colomer / Formentor’s Lighthouse

 

In the municipality of Pollença, northwest of the island, we find the Mirador d'Es Colomer. Ideal to see both sunrise and sunset, this viewpoint is perched on a 200 meter vertical cliff and offers truly spectacular views of the mountains and the Mediterranean. Besides, it offers the possibility of ascending to the Talaia d'Albercuix, from where you can enjoy the views of Pollença Bay.

 

If we continue on the road a few more kilometers, we will reach the famous Formentor’s Lighthouse. We recommend having the camera ready at any time, because you can take spectacular images of the arrival at the lighthouse from its winding road.

 

A detail, in summer, due to the tourist saturation in this place of great environmental interest, traffic is restricted to private vehicles. Access without permission is sanctioned with fines of 200 euros. Therefore, if you are going to visit as a group, we recommend one of the comfortable Futurtrans buses. We have several capacities and we are very flexible.

 

 

 

Bellver's Castle

 

The Castell de Bellver is a must stop for our buses when we visit Palma. Elevated over the bay, the castle offers incomparable views of the city, La Seu, the port and much of southern Mallorca. It attracts attention for its very rare circular gothic-style plant, formerly a palace/fortress where to take refuge in case of attack, which can be seen from the city due to its settlement on the top of a hill. In addition to the architecture, its visitors will be surprised with its greatness and exquisiteness, since the castle was conceived as a royal residence with refined and elegant finishings.

 

The Castell has temporary and permanent exhibitions and usually hosts concerts and other activities. For more information, you can visit their website https://castelldebellver.palma.cat/

 

 

 

Puig de Randa / Sanctuary of Cura

 

The Puig de Randa, located between the towns of Algaida, Montuïri, Porreras and Llucmajor, in the central area of the island, offers very different views of the vantage points that we find in the Serra de Tramuntana or the coast of the island. From the top of this hill you can see the known as Pla de Mallorca (Plain of Mallorca). It worths your visit to see the skyline of numerous villages and the mallorcan countryside, an image that will radically change its color depending on the season of the year whenever we visit it.

 

At the top there is the Santuari de Cura, a religious monastery of singular beauty in which it is possible to stay, visit its museum or enjoy its varied gastronomic offer of mediterranean cuisine.

 

 

Na Foradada

 

Finally, we will talk about the most visited point to watch the sunset on the island: Na Foradada. Located in Deià, this vantage point receives hundreds of visits every day, especially in summer, when locals and strangers approach the place to see the day’s farewell. Although it is at this time when it receives more visits, you can enjoy it at any time of the day and it will still seem spectacular.

 

Na Foradada (The perforated one) receives its name from a peculiar rock that has a hole that, contemplated from the sea, has the shape of Mallorca island. It is very common to see boats anchored in its crystalline waters to enjoy a maritime day until sunset. All this makes Na Foradada even a most bucolic place.

 

To finish up you can enjoy the pleasures of mediterranean cuisine, along with a good mallorcan wine, in the restaurant of the viewpoint.

 

In Futurtrans we have a fleet of buses with different capacities to accompany you wherever you want. In addition, we have flexibility for the gathering, so if you want to make an excursion we can pick you up at an agreed spot.
