Cala Llombards is the mouth of the torrent of Son Amer, located at seven kilometres from Santanyí, next to the village with the same name. This quiet white sandy area, which continues for many metres toward the interior, until the pine wood by which it is limited, is surrounded by very high and steep cliffs. These elements explain that the beach is mostly visited by the families who live in the houses nearby. One of the highlights of Cala Llombards is the excellent panoramic view from the mythical geological feature of es Pontàs (big bridge in English), a rock which has been eroded by the waves that seems a bridge in the sea. There are also some escars in the cliffs, used by the fishers to keep their boats.
The route will begin at the Railway Station, located at Plaça Espanya, 6. The building housing Sóller train station was the old 17th century fortified house of Can Mayol. Above the entrance arch of the façade, a console displays the date of 1606. It was later converted into a hotel and eventually, at the beginning of the 20th century, into a railway station. The result of the restructuring from 1911-1912 is the art nouveau style preserved in the building, consisting of a series of delicate decorative details on doors, windows, ironwork, platform corbels and the tank in the courtyard, among other places. On leaving the station, to the left, beside the Major water course, you will see before you three examples of the typical railings that border the gardens of many houses in Sóller. Can Penya, Can Isabel and Cas Fideuer display the skilled ironwork of the artisans of the first third of the 20th century. Flowers, rosettes and leaves intertwine in elegant and simple designs. Pines, araucarias (or monkey-puzzle trees) and palms grow in these gardens.
Banyalbufar is another hiking location that offers a variety of hikes that vary in distance and difficulty. Close to Palma, hikers can choose a more challenging and mountainous route, or stick to easier trails that have both wonderful sea and mountain views. Also in the area are many traditional Mallorca homes and small towns.

Platja d'es Trenc is located at 6,5 kilometres from Colònia de Sant Jordi. The name (“ravine” in English) comes from the opening of the saline area that divides the coastal barrier of dunes, whereas the oral tradition tells that in the middle of the 18th century a tsunami came after the earthquake of Lisbon, which divided the dune cord between the open sea and the wetland. This beach is the last big sandy areas which is still unspoilt and well preserved in Majorca. Together with es Salobrar de Campos it is a protected area of 1492 hectares. It is one of the virgin places that are most crowded during the summer weekends. Es Trenc has white, fine-grained sand, gentle slope, nudist area, and a system of dunes that separates the beach from the saline area and the agricultural land, and also a wetland with 171 species of migration and sedentary avifauna. The water is open to south-southwest-west- and northwest and is transparent. The ground is sandy, with some stony areas and seaweed at a depth of four metres.
