Always a regular in our annual visit to Pollensa is this steep climb up the Puig. It takes around 40 minutes to do the walk in the spring but I suspect it may take longer in the heat of the summer. The views at the top and all the way up are fabulous and the advantage of a drink and... More

We drove most of the way up.....with hindsight I really wish we hadn't!! The narrow roads & hairpin bends make for a scary drive!! We ended up turning round (a massive achievement in itself!) and parking a few bends before the end of the road. The second mistake I made was wearing flip flops.....this was a last minute decision to... More

Having read the reviews on here we decided to go for a trek up to the top- we packed loads of water & a few extra layers as it was a bit windy at the bottom so we figured it'd be pretty wild at the top. We reckoned on it taking more than the estimated 45 minutes as my youngest... More

Arrived to find another couple having lunch. There was a bell to ring for service - after ringing it 3 times and waiting patiently between each I decided to go look for someone to take our order. I eventually found a lady who did take our order & prepare it but definitely not a friendly sole. The food was OK... More

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 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
