FROM CALA ESTELLENCS TO CALA CASTELL

The Sierra de Tramuntana mountains are the backbone of the northwest coast of Mallorca, stretching from Estellencs to Formentor. Seen from the sea, this is a wild, rugged landscape, dominated by the tall cliffs that plunge down into the water but are sometimes softened and open up in isolated coves where fishing villages grew up, like Port de Valldemossa,  There is an abundance of solitary beauty spots, like Sa Foradada peninsula, with a seabed divers yearn for, or busier ones like the  Sa Calobra beach, where you can combine the contemplation of beauty with gastronomy. The defence towers are confirmation that the island protected itself from attacks by pirates, and they are now unique viewing platforms all around the coast. Hundreds of trails run inland, delimited by dry stone walls and crossing over estates of ancient olive trees and lush pine groves. A unique setting in the world, declared World Heritage by UNESCO due to its cultural value.
