Mallorca has a fantastic coastline that hides beautiful natural areas, coves and caves that are only accessible from the sea. For those who don’t have a boat or for those who love the sport, there is a very entertaining and fun way to reach and explore these beautiful places: a kayak.
If you don’t have a kayak, or have left it at home so you don’t have to take it on the plane, you can find many specialised companies. In the northeast, you will find Kayak Excursion Mallorca, Kayaks Alcudia or Kayak Mallorca, which offer all kinds of kayaks for rent so that you can set off on an adventure or even guided excursions.
If you are one of the bravest, here are three of the most common excursions between Puerto de Pollensa and Can Picafort. They will surprise you:
Route 1. Puerto de Pollensa - Cala Murta
This beautiful excursion, a 20-kilometre round trip, departs from Playa de Pollensa in the direction of Formentor. In its almost 6 hours, you will discover places such as the Cova en Borges, Cala Pi and the emblematic Playa de Formentor. The last part of the route follows the coast to Cala Murta, where the more daring can take a short 2-kilometre walk to discover the unspoilt beach of Cala en Gossalba, one of the area’s treasures.
Route 2. Sa Marina – Platja de Sant Pere
This easy 3-hour route starts at Sa Marina, an area frequented by kitesurfers, on the road to Puerto de Pollença. Along the 7-kilometre round trip, you will pass by Punta des Sebel-lí and Punta de Manresa, until you reach the beaches of Sant Joan and San Pere, where you can enjoy a swim before heading back.
Route 3. Ca’n Picafort - Son Serra de Marina
This 7-kilometre route starts from the beach of Ca’n Picafort and will allow you to discover beautiful areas such as the Necropolis of Son Real and several unspoilt coves until you reach the final destination: Arenal den Casat, where diving enthusiasts will enjoy swimming in its crystal-clear waters.
