A walk along the top of the ramparts of Alcudia. Horse riding at the Rancho Grande near Alcudia. The boat trip from Puerto Pollensa port to the beautiful Formentor Beach is well worth it. You can also take the breathtakingly steep road across Cap de Formentor to the lighthouse for a view of the edge of the world: beware of vertigo as in some places the cliffs are 210m high with a sheer drop!
The ramparts of Alcudia, the Cap de Formentor, the Albufera Natural Park, the Lluc Monastery, the leather market in Inca, the picturesque market in Sineu (Wednesdays), the wine route: Petra, Llubi, Sa Pobla. The superb Morer Vermell Beach affords a magnificent view of Pollensa Bay, framed by Cap Pinar and Cap de Formentor.
The little road that goes all the way to Cap de Formentor offers breathtaking views of the landscapes, but remember to be very careful if you're not used to driving in the mountains.
