Today we walked to the top of the Puig Maria in Pollenca. Perfect weather, pleasantly warm for January. The last kilometre is quite steep & stony, but well worth the effort. Stunning views over the plains of Mallorca & Pollensa/Alcudia Bay. We lunched at the cafe behind the Chapel (1348 ). The food was delicious: Spanish vegetable soup, cheese &... More

We made the big mistake in our Fiat Punto to drive all the way to the top.......omg ! Without doubt the most terrifying scary drive of my long life , not deep drops but the steepness and amazing hairpin bends......trust me walk up of if you have to drive half way then walk....when up the top it's like heaven ...what...

We decided to do this walk after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. The view from the top over Pollenca and the surrounding area are stunning and well worth the walk up the hill. The path is steep and needs a fairly good level of fitness, make sure you wear a good solid pair of shoes/walking boots. About two thirds of... More

It's an easy to follow trail, up a steep narrow tarmacked road, then ending in rocky steep steps. Definitely best in trainers or light walking shoes, but I came not intending to walk, and had only Merrell sandals which were ok, but wouldn't recommend sandals if there has been recent rain as it would be very slippery at the top....

Do not let anyone fool you into thinking this is a pleasant easy stroll up a wee hill. The first two thirds is very steep but there are benches to enjoy the view and all is very pleasant. But then you hit the rocky path which in hiking boots might not be too bad but in flip flops you need... More

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.
