The Hotel Cala Sant Vicenç has been accepted by the Consell de Turismo de Mallorca (the ministry of tourism for Mallorca) to be an affiliated Hotel Specialist in their official guide for golf, cycling and hiking holidays. To be included requires a full audit, a lengthy application process and a level of quality that only the Consell can approve. The final inclusion in the guide acknowledges the hotel has the facilities and amenities to make guests very welcome who partake in these particular activities, and that the hotel is well placed for ease of access to all the aforementioned sports. This makes it an ideal choice for individuals, small groups and business incentive teams looking for an active time.
Situated in the quiet village of Cala Sant Vicente, Mallorca, at the foot of the dramatic Tramuntana mountains, the hotel is the perfect base for hikers wishing to make daily excursions along a number of well signed mountain paths. There’s a wide variety of options including a walk through the ragged mountains to the magical Lluc Monastery nestled amongst the peaks; as well as a walk that leads to the end of the Formentor Peninsula where the cliffs drop away into the Mediterranean. Individuals can join group hikes with local guide Rich Strutt who runs Mallorcan Walking Tours or alternatively purchase detailed maps and go independent.
For golfers one of the island’s more established courses the Pollensa golf club is just a short distance away and offers a nine hole course in rolling countryside, ideal for the experienced and novice alike. For those that prefer a sea view the stunning Alcanada golf course with its breathtaking Mediterranean backdrop is a relative new comer to the island’s golf scene and offers a challenging course in a beautiful location.
For cyclists there are a wide variety of challenging routes offering mountain terrain, rolling countryside or vertical mountain bike paths.

Maps, tours, guides and daily group rides that are free for anybody to join are all available.
The hotel is also a great place for those who may be interested in sailing, diving, sea-kayaking or any other water based sport as the busy resort of Puerto Pollensa is just a ten minute drive where all of these sports are available. With September weather consisting of sunny days and balmy evenings it’s the perfect time of year to explore the outside activities on offer in Mallorca.
