An easy bicycle tour in the southwest of Mallorca

The southwest of Mallorca is characterized by a hilly landscape and ambitious to go by bike. But this route is easy to manage even you go up to the mountains. You bike along tiny roads without much traffic.

Distance: approx. 30 km

Route: Santa Ponsa – Es Capdella – Paguera – Santa Ponsa

We start our bicycle tour in Santa Ponsa, passing the highway towards Calvia. At the end of the industrial area Son Bugadelles (roundabout) follow the wooden sign to Calvia. It´s the old street leading to Calvia. After a while of slightly uphill we pass left (another wooden sign to Es Capdella). The most beautiful part of our bike tour: biking with view to the peak of the Galatzo, the highest peak in the southwest of Mallorca, across fields, almond trees and sheep.

Once we reach Es Capdella, take a stop at BAR NOU. It´s a traditional restaurant with huge and delicious plates. I always order sole – the biggest you can get on Majorca! After lunch we bike downhill towards Paguera. It´s the so called “Green valley”. Passing again the highway, at the next roundabout we turn left leaving Paguera towards Santa Ponsa, following the red marked bicycle track. After a short but steep uphill part we go downhill via Costa de la Calma back to Santa Ponsa


Welcome to the island of light! Majorca is a heaven on earth offering the very best of everything. With Mallorquissimo I will show you “my” island as I have come to know and love it over more than 18 years.
