Travel Agents View enjoy wandering through the narrow, winding streets looking at the old stone houses and the 18th century parish church

Estellencs is a traditional village which has remained relatively untouched by the tourist market. Visitors will enjoy wandering through the narrow, winding streets looking at the old stone houses and the 18th century parish church and scenic trips through the mountains.

There are several restaurants and a shingle beach which is great for swimming but not so good for sunbathing.

The ideal resort for anyone looking to get away from the hustle bustle of the busier and more touristy resorts.

Majorca Insider The ideal resort for anyone looking to get away from the hustle bustle of the busier and more touristy resorts

Visiting the coastal village of Estellencs, arguably one of the prettiest on the island, which hugs the shadows of Puig de Galatzó mountain, is always a treat. Sitting high above the coast, the village offers peace and tranquility and spectacular views of the jagged pine and olive clad cliffs of the Tramuntana mountains. Old dry stone walled terraces snake around the hills, a throwback to the Moors, bursting with citrus trees and olives. This is one of the places I visit to get away from it all. I love the tightly twisting lanes, the little church of Sant Joan Baptista in the main square and the stately old stone houses scattered through the mountains. If you enjoy picking up the odd artisan gift, do stop by Ceramiques Estellencs which sells colourful local pottery, embroidery, known as punt Mallorquin, and jewellery, and a favourite restaurant is the simple Montimar in Plaça Constitució which has a lovely terrace overlooking the mountains.

Despite its lofty position, there is a steep but easy walk down to Cala d'Estellencs, the rocky little cove that boasts glassy, crystal clear waters. Although the beach is shingly, it's ideal for a bracing dip or spot of snorkelling and my husband, son and I always pop in to Sa Punteta, the simple little beachside restaurant for a relaxing snack or lunch. If you don't like the cold, can I advise swimming in the morning when the beach still captures the sun? If you're up for a long walk, it is possible to climb Galatzó mountain because it has clearly marked trails but be careful in the heat of the summer when the sun blazes and bring lots of sun cream, water and snacks! It's a good few hours schlep up to the top but the views are superb and well worth the effort. A nearby attraction is Mirador de Ses Animes, also known as Mirado Torre del Verger, a vertiginous 16th century watchtower which clings to the cliff and can be easily climbed, although perhaps best not for vertigo sufferers! It offers incredible vistas out to sea which must have been useful for pirate spotting in the 16th century although nowadays you're more likely to espy luxury yachts.
