Climb every mountain they said! Well, this isn’t a real mountain, but Puig de Maria is a high, tough climb to the top, via winding steep roads and cobbles, through trees and passing goats, other walkers and seeing the most beautiful views along the way....More

Easy to get to the starting point of this walk - it is around 10 mins walk from Pollensa bus station. Take care when crossing the main road towards the mountain. Try to go when the surface is dry as it can be slippy on...More

Strenuous with two young children and two buggies but we did it! The zig zag path eases the gradient for the most part but the final few hundred yards is much steeper, of rough cobble stones and slippery after rain or a heavy dew so...More

It's a steep climb, whether from the town or from the top of the road, leaving a 15-20 minute hike up fairly rough cobbled steps, but well worth it when you reach the top. It's well kempt and atmospheric. You really feel you deserve your...More

We’ve climbed to the top of the Puig at least once on each occasion we’ve visited Pollença. It’s not for the faint hearted especially if you are not the fittest as it’s a tough old climb especially if you go in the summer months and...More

We took the opportunity to break up our relaxing holiday centred around the pool to hike to the monastery one morning. Its an excellent trip that's well worth the effort, with amazing views of old town Pollenca and across to the coast. If you take...More

Really enjoyed walking up to the monastery. It is very atmospheric when you reach it. Still and tranquil. It took us about 30 mins to reach the top with a few stops. It does require some effort but not for long.

Friends had visited the monastery previously and warned me it was a challenging climb so I knew what I was letting myself in for! I’m a reasonably fit 65 year old and walk regularly but not particularly up hills. The walk from the main road...More

Well worth the climb but not recommended with flip flops at midday! Take some water and go early. The drive up to the carpark (holds about 4 cars) is a bit hairy but removes the first third of the walk but I'd only recommend it...More

It does have overnight accommodation so would have thought it would be open for residents, but best to phone them. I was there between 2 - 3pm and they were taking calls for bookings.

I haven’t been in October but since most bars and restaurants stay open in Pollença and the Port till the end of October I’d imagine it will be open. It’s definitely a more comfortable time weather wise to climb. Enjoy!

It is possible to get 1/2 to 3/4 up a very steep climb but the latter part is not as it is unmade and uneven surface followed by cobbles. If you took the bike you would be pushing or carrying it, not recommended although l... More
