Majorka was for me very underestimate destination - I thought that this island is only for beach loafers. That was really big mistake! This was our second trip only on foot and I can recommend it to everyone who is not beginner and who has some experiences. We went from Sant Elm to Soller (+- 85 km), track was hard because of bad rainy weather, so it was dangerous - dry stones changed to wet and every step was like going on soap floor. There was no chance how to finished GR221, even bus from Lluc was stopped because of wheater. So we moved to San Picaford (eastern coast) and there we started GR 222, which is no less beautiful and wheater there was better (+- 55 km). People there are pleasant, nature very very beautiful, food excellent, accommodation very various in comfort and also prices, we tried everything from sleeping outside to 4* superb hotel - each way was magnificent. Thumbs up for Majorka :)

Artestruz Mallorca

A guide will teach you amazing facts about these ancient birds, in a safe and respectful environment. Tours are interesting, fun and very surprising. If you prefer not to go for a guided tour, you are welcome to meet the ostriches by yourself. Please check website for current prices and timetables.

This place is quite unique. It is a bit rough around the edges but for us this only added to the charm. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If they got tired of answering my children’s many, many questions it didn’t show! We had a fabulous time learning all sorts of interesting facts and were lucky enough to come home with an ostrich egg thanks to a very kind Italian family. This has gone to school so we can share the ostrich love with our friends in Newcastle!

Barranco de Guayadeque

Reviewed By 7edg - London, United Kingdom

This baranco is very long. To get the most out of it I'd recommend heading to Montana de las tierras and starting out from there. We drove but saw taxis which you could pick up from aguimes. There was also evidence of a bus service, although I'd want to check the timetable before relying on them, not sure how frequent the service is.  Once you've parked up you can follow the track up for as long as you like. It gives some great views of the area you've driven through. The trail also continues on through the baranco. We only had an hour of daylight so didn't go far. But looks like you could quite happily walk carry on for plenty a mile (although obviously check a map for trails). Also on the road from aguimes to the mountain you'll see the interpretation centre for the valley. Sadly it was closed for technical reasons when were there (mid December 2019).

Very nice well kept rescued animals including tigers snakes chimps birds and lots of crocodiles including babies. Make sure you go at interactive times (11am - 1pm ish). Not expensive

Jardines de Santa Clotilde

This wonderful garden was landscaped in a setting of great beauty on top of a cliff with breath-taking views over the sea, and it is a fine specimen of the spirit that animated the Noucentista movement in Catalonia - an early twentieth-century movement for intellectual and aesthetic renewal that found a distinguished spokesman in the writer Eugeni d'Ors. The Santa Clotilde gardens were designed in the manner of the dainty yet austere gardens of the Italian Renaissance by Nicolau Rubió i Tuduri at the age of twenty-eight, when he was still brimming over with admiration for his master in the art of landscape gardening, Forestier.

We have visited the Publo on many occasions and it never seems to change it is still as tranquil as ever.. If you like peace and tranquility this is the place for you.The little white houses with bright flowerpots ,quiet narrow streets is wonderful.The view from the top of the Publo are spectacular,looking down over the coast. There are a few little bars and restaurants so no need to go hungry or thirsty. Can't wait to go back.

Montana Roja

Reviewed By 501suelyf - Dublin, Ireland

Montaña Roja was our favourite spot in our trip to Lanzarote. At the feet of our hotel, we climbed twice, both for sunrise and sunset, both worth the climb. It's an easy climb, everybody with a minimal effort can do it and it takes less than 30 minutes if you are a bit fit. You can park the car close to Montaña Baja and then find the trail at the feet of the mountain and start your way up. From up there you have amazing views of Playa Blanca and Fuerteventura just in front of you and also Papagayo Bay with its beautiful beaches. The crater is easily reachable and you can walk around it or go to the middle as well. Awesome for a quiet spot to see the beautiful sunrise or the amazing sunset. Its pretty windy up there, so bring a jacket if you plan to stay a bit longer. Totally worth the climb and the best part is that is for free and Mother Nature really rewards your efforts with tremendous views of the landscapes around the island! If you have an hour to spear, just go and enjoy!
