-Golf. Here in the northern part of Majorca you’ll be a stone’s throw from two great golf courses – Alcanada and Pollensa.

Alcanada meanwhile is a high-end course, with fairways flanked by olive and pine trees, perfectly situated next to the bay of Alcudia.
-Nature. For those of an adventurous bent, the impressive Tramuntana mountain range is too close to ignore. It can be explored by car via twisting lanes, but also has much to offer hikers, with a big network of trails, all varying in difficulty. It’s a beautiful landscape, covered in fragrant pine forest that conceals historic churches and hunting shelters.
-Food and drink. On Majorca you could take the chance to sample the local wine. Large portions of the landscape is given over to vine cultivation, and Binissalem, halfway between Palma and Alcudia, is the most celebrated region here. Meanwhile Sobrassada, a kind of soft chorizo, and ensaimada, a sweet swirled pastry, are classic Majorcan creations.
