The Best Hotels for Cyclists on Mallorca

Scenic Mallorca, with its bright blue sea and coastline which ranges from rugged and dramatic to calm and sandy, and its mountain ranges, is a wonderful place for a cycling holiday. The light is gorgeous, the colours are bright and the weather is pleasant for most of the year. Plus there’s an excellent range of riding terrains, from leisurely to seriously demanding! Mallorca’s shoulder seasons, and even winter, have become extremely popular with cyclists, so you still need to book ahead when it comes to the best hotels for cyclists on Mallorca.
