Puig de Sant Martí
Excursion to Puig de Sant Martí, Alcudia. Distance 5 km, time 1:30h, easy.
The Puig de Sant Martí is a mountain of 266 meters high located in a mountainous area near Alcudia and Puerto Alcudia. It is well known for the practice of flights in Paragliding and Hang Gliding.
The area where Puig de Sant Martí is located presents a thick pine grove. As you climb the mountain the tall vegetation decreases and becomes bushes.
An optimal place to start the hiking route is the parking area that we found shortly after entering the forest area from the main road Alcudia - Palma.
The first part of the route runs through flat area, where the pines provide plenty of shade. After 1.5km the climb starts with a steep slope.
At the top we can enjoy breathtaking views of the bay of Alcudia and Pollensa. The view to the port of Alcudia is striking, an almost aerial view.
How to arrive:
The Puig de Sant Martí is located in Alcudia. Arriving in Alcudia from Palma on the Ma-13, between the first two roundabouts there is an unpaved road that leads to the Puig de Sant Martí. A few meters after taking the detour there is an area where you can park.
