Outdoor Activities on Cala San Vicente
October 9, 2020 | Blog
Mallorca comes spoiled with ravishing locales that combine scenic Mediterranean beauty with rich opportunities for outdoor recreation and R&R. Certainly one of those ravishing locales is Cala San Vicente, tucked on the northeastern coast of the island within easy reach of Puerto Pollensa and offering ready access to both postcard-caliber beachfront and rugged, evocative mountain-scapes.
With the perfect luxury accommodations at Hoposa Hotel Niu, you’re magnificently situated to fall under Cala San Vicente’s spell: It’s just what the doctor ordered for a bit of sea-breeze treatment and pinewood therapy!
Hiking, Biking, and Beachgoing in & Around Cala San Vicente
Cala San Vicente is certainly a prime place to take in the dreamy seduction of the Mallorcan seaboard. Here you’ll an abundance of plush sands—including those of the biggest beach in the area, Cala Barques, which our Hotel Niu overlooks—as well as rugged, piney headlands reaching out into the Mediterranean. The splendor of the Cala San Vicente area’s several coves holds its own with any of the rest of the island’s super-abundance of breathtaking sightlines.
Beachgoing or boating along the local sandy strands and shining cliffs may well occupy much of your time here, but you’ll also be rewarded for exploring the Cala San Vicente hinterland more thoroughly. Hikers and birdwatchers with a taste for adventure will love the craggy heights of the mighty Cavall Bernat ridge, one of the area’s defining landmarks and a beautiful expression of Mallorca’s Serra de Tramuntana backbone. You can admire and access the ridge with a walk out of the Siller Pass (Coll de Siller). Needless to say, you’ve also got many other routes available to tramp the limestone glories of the Serra de Tramuntana with a Cala San Vicente home base.
You may well be lured eastward out the rugged peninsula of the Cap de Formentor, which serves up more glorious mountainous terrain, far-reaching sea views, and a historic lighthouse.
Biking or even hiking between Cala San Vicente and Puerto Pollensa makes another rewarding outing.
