Hiking, not drinking!
Beach, palms and drinking yourself dead drunk. This is probably the most common cliché the balear island Majorca has to fight with. In recent years, the laws have been tightened more and more, especially to put an end to booze-binge tourism. However, the mediterranean island is not only known for its party-scene, but also the nice spots in the west and north of the island are popular with hikers and cyclists. In spring and fall (off-season) the streets are flooded with racing bikes.
MAJORCA BY SCOOTER
Those who are less sporty have cheap alternatives to rent a scooter/vespa. Compared to renting a car it’s much cheaper and during off-season they are hardly rented and therefore the price is even lower. For us, it was about 25 € per day and with one tank filling (4 €) we were able to drive 100 km. Perfect, if you are aiming for a hiking area close by. Our target during our vacation was the Talaia d’Alcúdia with 455m altitude. Starting in Alcúdia, it takes about 2 hours to the top. Our reward was a wonderful view on Alcúdia bay and mountain goats along the way. Not to mention the great pictures ;)
