Cap de Ses Salines to Colònia Sant Jordi

Hiking in Mallorca

Hiking trails are not few on the island of Mallorca. Earlier this week I enjoyed the beautiful hike from Cap de Ses Salinas to La Colònia Sant Jordi. It is an approximately eleven kilometers long hike with an easy route plan that allows you to admire the most exceptional coves and wild beaches of Mallorca – always accompanied by the view of the Mediterranean ocean and the island of Cabrera. The hike is accessible only by foot since the tracks are privately owned and the entire area is fenced.

The hike from Cap de Ses Salines to Colònia de Sant Jordi

The route is, as many of the hiking trails in Mallorca, one-way so a car is the easiest way to reach the routs. To do this hike the way I did, leave your car in the town of Ses Salines, from there you can take a cab to Cap de Ses Salines (purple pin) where you can see the lighthouse.

This is where the hike starts. Take the path to the right and follow northwest to Sa Punta Negra – from here you just walk along side the beautiful shore line. The first beach you will reach is Platja des Cargol – a great, long and lonely beach – where a dip in the ocean could be the best when the weather allows. Needless to say, along the hike you will see various bunkers and other excavations in the rocks – these are old and fascinating military buildings.

Ses Salines Continue along the coast until you reach Ses Roquetes overlooking the island Sa Pelada. Then you will find the magnificent beach of ses Roquetes where you can see the whitish sand contrasting with the various blue water. Along the beaches from now on you can see the the island Na Moltona in front of you.

Soon you will reach the next beach on this hike – Platja d’es Carbó – from now on the island in you will see changes from Na Moltona to the island of Na Guardis. All of the small islands in the horizon is an amazing part of Mallorcas shoreline and they never fail to amaze.

From here you will continue to the small beach Can Curt with its characteristic small buildings. Close to here is Platja des Dolç where you will find an installation series including bars, cafes, parasols and toilets, a very nice beach for many occasions. You can stay there another time because the hike is almost finished at this point. From here you will continue to Port de Campos, a place that allows you to rent different types of boats or join one of the small boat trips that leaves from there to areas close by.

After Port de Campos you will be entering the urban area of Colònia de Sant Jordi (red pin). Stay for a while if you would like. When you feel ready to go back, take the bus L502 that will bring you back to Ses Salines.
