The Foradada Excursion

Sa Foradada

Among the 7 easy excursions in Mallorca, one of the simplest to undertake is the descent to Sa Foradada. One of the most famous and well-known rock formations in Mallorca, known for its hole and viewpoint, which we already mentioned in the post ‘The Best Sunsets in Mallorca,’ also offers an excursion accessible to the majority of the public, although there are always exceptions.

The excursion starts from the houses of Son Marroig, crossing an olive grove and descending through the slope until reaching a small pier. The excursion has an average duration of 2 hours one way and 2 hours return, covering a total distance of about 7 kilometers. However, the most challenging part is the return, as the ascent involves an elevation gain of about 444 meters. Still, there’s no need to worry about the difficulty since reputable hiking apps like Wikiloc categorize it as Easy.

The ascent to Puig de María

Views from Puig (Pollensa)

Located in Pollensa, its 325 meters in height make this excursion probably one of the easiest to undertake.

The route starts from the Pollensa road itself, and you just have to follow the path along the mountain. At the summit of the mountain, you will find a 14th-century church founded by nuns.

The duration to the summit is approximately one hour, and you will be able to delight in magnificent views of the Bay of Pollensa and the town of Pollensa.

Excursion to Puig de Randa

Puig de Randa

Between Algaida and Llucmajor lies a magical mountain where the majority of Mallorcan folk tales and real stories of Mallorca originate.

The mountain of Randa, with a height of 540 meters, is an easy excursion in Mallorca. It can be reached through a winding road of about 5 kilometers, which starts in the village of Randa.

During the journey, you will come across the Sanctuary of Gracia and the hermitage of Sant Honorat. Upon reaching the summit, you will come across the Sanctuary of Cura, where you will find the best 360º views of the entire island, from the most central point in Mallorca.

The Cala Figuera Lighthouse

Indeed, it is an easy excursion, and its route offers views of the sea, passing by bunkers, tunnels, and abandoned army artillery.

With its 14 kilometers of distance, it’s a circular route that will take you through Portals Vells Beach, all the way to the Cala Figuera Lighthouse. In fact, you can extend the excursion all the way to El Toro.

This is an easy excursion that you can comfortably complete in 5 hours, without the need for significant physical preparation. The best part is that it’s a circular route, allowing you to explore different landscapes in a single outing.

La Trapa

If you’re looking for a short and easy excursion, going to La Trapa is your ideal choice for a family outing. However, there are several options that can make the excursion a bit more challenging, so be sure to choose the path that avoids the Cala En Basset Tower. Your only concern will be the elevation gain in some sections, although it will never exceed 333 meters, according to Wikiloc.

Upon arriving at the ancient monastery, you’ll have incredible views of the entire Dragonera island and the entire coast.
