Leaving Mallorca

End of the Mallorca jaunt. I caught the 211 bus from Port Soller to Palma and then the no1 from Palma to the airport. And a flight back to Birmingham.

Torre Picada

A nice easy day after yesterday’s length hike. I followed route three on the free tourist map from Soller tourist info. This was a short one going north from the port. It took me to Torre Picada, and then Punta Curta, and finally on a long windy road through Olive trees to a dead end […]

GR221 to Biniaraix

I booked another two nights at Hotel Marina in Puerto de Soller as the buffet food was ok. Turned out the next two nights there were not enough guests paying for half board to make buffet worth the hotel’s while so the few dining got a fixed meal. Tonight was tuna salad followed by pork […]

Valldemossa to Deia on GR221

I caught a bus to Valldemossa with a plan to walk the GR221 back to Port Soller. I first walked around the village before locating the trail. It wasn’t as easy as I’d thought. I spotted five Spanish guys and asked if the track that was blocked with a private no entry sign was ok […]

Cap Gros coastal path

After breakfast I caught a bus from Port de Pollenca to Palma, and bus from Palma to Port Soller. On the Pollenca bus I sat near a young mother with her child who had a bad case of chicken pox. I’ve already had it so no fear of catching, but I still felt contaminated! It […]

Hotel Sis Pins

I booked to stay another night as the hotel Sis Pins was really good. Continental breakfast was self service with a good choice of meats and cereals, and a full English on offer delivered to the table by friendly staff. Everyone in this hotel seemed happy, so it made it perfect to stay in. It […]

To Port de Pollenca on GR221

I booked a night B&B in Hotel Sis Pins in Port de Pollenca, so decided to walk the GR221 from Lluc with my baggage on my back. This takes you through the woodland, and slowly down the mountains into Pollenca, followed by riverside walk most of way to Port de Pollenca. It too five hours […]

GR222 Lluc to Caimari

I walked stage 5 of the GR222 between Lluc and Caimari. The highlight of this route is reaching the Sa Bretxa Vella, view when you reach a cleft with rock pinnacle on left and The Puig Caragoler mountain to the right. When passing through here and turning the corner, you are greeted with a lovely […]

Puig de Massanell on the GR 221

After breakfast, which was not a buffet this time, so a limited range of stuff was delivered to my table and still £8 euro, I decided to do the GR 221 from Lluc to Embassament de Cuber. It was a clear day and looked fine in the hills. The walk took me through the woods […]

Climbing Puig Tomir

Buffet breakfast in the Sanctuary included cold meats, cheese, bread, cereals jam and croissants plus orange juice and coffee all for 8 Euro. After this I set off on the Volta a La Moleta De Binifaldo trail and detoured to Puig Tomir. It was cold and cloudy start and the mountain top had a thin […]
