Sportsmen's paradise in the Mediterranean Sea

Mallorca offers ideal conditions for your sport and holiday: fascinating landscapes, great weather, culture and culinary delights. We invite you to rediscover Mallorca.

Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearic Islands and Spain’s largest island, too. It is located in the western Mediterranean about 170 km from the Spanish mainland near Barcelona and is the most important tourist destination in Spain.

In the 70s, the beginning mass tourism and the subsequent construction boom have changed the image of the charming island in some places. Fortunately, Mallorca’s government has counteracted the overexploitation of nature and environment and preserved much of Mallorca's original beauty.

More and more tourists discover beyond the busy beaches the "other Mallorca", the island of windmills and fincas with its rich flora, the forests with pines and holm oaks, the rugged mountain ranges and the hidden, picturesque bays.

Among cyclists the island is no longer an insider's tip, rather it has developed into a real cyclist's paradise. A favourable climate, a varied topography and an excellent cycling infrastructure make Mallorca very popular in spring and autumn not only with professional cyclists, but also with hobby cyclists for holiday and training purposes.


Mallorca is located in the subtropical Mediterranean climate. Summers are dry and hot, winters mild and humid. The high coastal mountains also keep many bad weather fronts away from the island.

Landscape and regions

The landscape of Mallorca is marked by strong contrasts and can be divided into three main regions.

Infrastructure bicycle tourism

Over the past two decades, Mallorca’s authorities have been actively involved in the development of cycle routes and cycle paths and have also encouraged the creation of a well-signposted island-wide network of cycle routes - the "red cicloturística". Secluded country roads, lonely country lanes and hidden forest tracks lead through uniquely beautiful landscapes between the small villages of the island's interior, where visitors can discover Mallorca’s culture and hospitality. Mallorca has a total road network of 1,250 km. Of these, 675 km are low-traffic side roads and about 20% are mountain roads.
