Driving the Serra de Tramuntana

Is this one of the world's most beautiful drives?

Running parallel to the north-western coast of the island of Mallorca, the soaring peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range pierce the clear blue sky.

On its steep slopes there is an aroma of wild rosemary and citrus, and nestled within its lush valleys are blond-stone villages built by the Moors. In 2011, UNESCO listed the mountain chain as a World Heritage Site, citing the significance of its agricultural tradition and the complex network developed to manage the region’s scarce resources.

But this does something of a disservice to the breadth of the Tramuntana’s natural beauty and its allure for hikers, cyclists, artists, and, of course, drivers. You'll need a hire car to explore: the Serra de Tramuntana drive is one of the most breathtaking in the Balearic islands.
