Recently spent a month in Pollensa and the walk up the Puig became an almost daily'drug'. The walk is steep in parts but is a concrete track and cobbled footway so not rough. The views from the top are amazing and it is generally so quiet up there that it feels like you've left everyday life behind. A fantastic place... More

A round trip took me around 2 hours but I'd allow a little longer if you need for a rest. It's a hard climb but really worth it. The views out over Formentor, Pollença and Alcudia are breathtaking. The puig itself is worth the visit too. It has had no refurbishment and is not a tourist attraction as such. It's... More

It may be rated as "easy" but it a lung busting leg stretching hike with brilliant views at the summit I walk regularly and its a serious 45 min climb from the town centre take water and a camera and its a winner.

In September at 30 degrees, this is a hard climb, but what an amazing place.... It is worth every step - go for it!

We did this at 9.30am. Glad we did as it was already 27° by that point which made it hard work! The majority is easy going but I agree with previous reviews; wear good shoes and the view is worth it in the end! Highlight of our trip.

This is a 30+ minute walk for an averagely fit person up a quite steep hill, but the views at the top make it worth the effort. Wear non-slip soles if you can as the path at the top can be slippery. Inside the monastery look for the paintings if the history of the island - very interesting. Wild goats... More

Whilst rated as "facile" ( easy) in terms of a mountain trek, it does take some effort to reach the top as other reviewers have noted. We bribed our 15 and 12 year old to do an early(ish) morning hike up with the promise of drinks and pastries at the top - but arrived at 10.15 to find that they... More

This is not for the unfit! The climb is steep and the last third on slippery cobbles. Wear trainers if possible. I wore sandals and regretted it! the views are amazing but go early or late and take water as you will be a sweaty mess by the time you reach the top and the pretty little sanctuary. It took... More

Only 10mins by local bus to this charming old town founded by the Romans with it's narrow streets, characterful houses, restaurants and cafe's. The church of Nostra Senyora dels Angels boasts a beautiful high rosette window at the head of the nave. There is a great view from the El Calvari chapel after ascending the 365 steps to the hilltop... More
