Outbound routes go right through the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana and follow the famous ma-10 road through forests and along the coast.

The main differences between riding to Andratx rather than riding back are:

  • You leave at your own time after a leisurely breakfast
  • You descend rather than climb the long side of Puig Major (14,5km)
  • You are on the coast side of the road so the view to the sea is always better

Here is a link to all our suggested return routes.


    • Leave at a time of your choosing
    • Can have a full and leisurely breakfast
    • Closer to the cliff edges for a slightly better view
    • Downhill into Sóller -14,5km of sweeping, swooping descent on new tarmac
    • Sea view for celebratory drinks on arrival in Port Andratx
    • Lots of choice of cafes and restaurants and bars
    • Finish your ride on a descent from Andratx to Port Andratx – about 6km gradual downhill
    • Sunrise on your back as you start the first climb away from Pollenca – Femenia
    • Ride the coll climbs from a new direction for a completely different experience
    • Looks and feels like a completely new route
    • It’s now a coast to coast: Port Pollenca to Port Andratx
    • Can add Sa Calobra in on the way out whilst legs are fresher
    • Can add Sa Calobra in on the way out before the buses get there
    • Covers the best part of the Mallorca 312 route
    • Good training for the Mallorca 312
    • Bus back is cheaper than bus out


  • Downhill into Sóller – this is only a con if you wish to climb rather than descend the longest and highest Coll on the island!
  • Have to meet the bus at a certain time: the solution is to aim to arrive earlier and enjoy a post ride meal and recovery drink in one of the many Port Andratx restaurants where you will be spoilt for choice.


The pro’s far outweigh the cons!
