Our re-opening date of Son Bunyola in Mallorca is fast approaching on 4th July and while the Spanish island is still emerging out of lockdown, and rules will undoubtedly be in place at many of the island’s beaches and sights, there are plenty of socially distanced activities available for those venturing beyond the seclusion of their luxurious villa on our 1,000-acre estate.
What cycling routes are near Son Bunyola?
Mallorca is often dubbed the mecca of European cycling, after all it was here where Bradley Wiggins spent this time training ahead of his 2012 Tour de France victory. It so happens to be that the island’s number one must-cycle route can be found right on the doorstep of Son Bunyola. Following the stunning coastal path from the nearby town of Esporles to Andratx, this route follows a wide, winding yet quiet road taking in beautiful views of the glistening Mediterranean Sea on one side and the impressive Tramuntana mountains on the other. Along the way, cyclists will pass through the charming coastal villages of Banyalbufar and Estellencs – great spots to refuel with a coffee and a slice of traditional almond cake. Those wanting to further challenge their legs, this route can easily be joined up with a ride inland into the mountain range, making for a beautiful 65 km circular route.
Can I hike near Son Bunyola?
Hikers are also spoilt for choice with plenty of walking routes nearby. From moderate walks to nearby villages or secluded beach coves for a refreshing swim post-hike to more challenging hill treks, walkers will along the way be rewarded with numerous viewpoints of the sea and the unspoilt Mallorcan landscape.
What else can I do while staying on Mallorca?
With the Mediterranean Sea a natural barrier to crowds, spend the day taking in the island’s majestic coastline from the deck of your private yacht. Set sail for Cala Deia and enjoy lunch at C’as Patro March, the fish restaurant set into a cliffside and famous for being featured in the award-winning BBC series ‘The Night Manager’ or head to a secret lagoon for an afternoon of swimming in a mystical, otherworldly location.
If sampling local fare is more your thing, treat yourself to a private tour of one of Mallorca’s oldest wineries. Take a stroll through the vineyard, discover the wine cellars and enjoy a wine tasting accompanied by traditional, homemade tapas in the beautiful historic Finca – we can think of worse ways to while an afternoon away.
