Mallorca is synonymous for world-renowned beaches and coves, but is also a perfect destination to enjoy sports because of its diversity: the island measures almost 80 kilometers from one end to the other and is outstanding for its diversity in landscapes.
It has the Tramontana mountains, which are ideal for cyclists, wide undulating landscapes where you can enjoy golf sessions and 550 kilometers of winding coast, hiding precious beaches behind every bend. The clear waters are ideal for swimming and water sports.
If you are looking for something different you can relax doing yoga or train your body while going along the Mallorcan coastline with the ElliptiGO…
There are several tennis clubs where you can book a court for an hour of tennis while enjoying the lovely views; urban in the city center (Palma Sports & Tennis Club), along the beach (Sporting Tennis Club Costa d’en Blanes) or surrounded by nature (Tennis Academy Mallorca). Rafael Nadal, born in Mallorca and the only male tennis player who ever won the Grand Slam “French Open” for 9 times in a row, will soon inaugurate his own Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy in Manacor.
