Hiking, swimming and a boat ride, what more could you want from a perfect day trip? The coastal high trail to Cala Tuent offers all three and is one of the most beautiful hikes on Mallorca. With the rocky peaks of the Tramuntana to one side and the shimmering turquoise sea to the other, the path winds picturesquely through the unique Mediterranean landscape.
A good starting point is the Mirador de Ses Barques near Sóller. From here, the way to Cala Tuent is completely signposted. Gently descending, it leads along olive and orange groves, through shady pine and sparse holm oak forest. The way up the Coll de Biniamar is the only steeper ascent of the tour. Shortly after, you can already spot the headland of Mola de Tuent and the ancient watchtower in the distance.
At its feet stretches the bright pebble beach of Cala Tuent. What a treat to swim in the crystal clear water after about four hours of hiking. And to enjoy a cool drink and the catch of the day on the terrace of Es Vergeret, overlooking the bay. Nicely idling away the remaining time before the boat brings you back to Port de Sóller. Sailing around the island even gives you an additional perspective.
Sometimes rides are cancelled on short notice due to unexpected weather conditions, though. If you don’t want to take this risk, you can make the tour in the opposite direction. Starting with the boat from Port de Sóller to Cala Tuent in the morning and hiking to the Mirador de Ses Barques. Also a great place to end the hike. Especially since the vista from the restaurant over the bay of Sóller is spectacular.
