Andratx, Banyalbufar loop

Andratx, Banyalbufar loop

Andratx - Estellencs - Banyalbufar - Puigpunyent - Es Capdella - Andratx

A tough but scenic route with a mix of coastal and forest scenery. A lot of climbing, including Coll des Grau and Coll de Sa Gramola.  Choose which way round you wish to go depending on the wind direction. The inland section will more be sheltered.

Highlights

Brilliant scenery with a lot of climbing. To be able to ride along such a beautiful coastline is fantastic. This forms part of the Mallorca 312 sportive route and serves to help forget about the legs being just a little tired!

Lots of good cafés and restaurants for refueling.

What to be aware of

Only 61km but with relentless ascents and descents. Traffic can be busier than most Mallorcan roads (not difficult I know) so additional care should be taken. It is not recommended to ride in a bunch for obvious reasons.
