Things to do in Deia and the Tramuntana mountains


Things to do in Deia and the Tramuntana mountains

Whether you are seeking an active day out, a cultural exploration around the town or just simply want to shop until you drop followed by a lemonade in the sunshine, there is plenty of things to do in Deia. Here’s a selection of pastimes to while away your days.

Walking routes around Deia
The mountains around Deia offer excellent hiking routes. If you’re unsure of your stamina level, start with the 3-hour Deia-Soller hike which offers great exercise, sea views and the smell of Mediterranean herbs teasing the nostrils at every turn.
Cyclists in Deia
The Teix and the Tramuntana is like a magnet to cyclists – especially in spring and autumn when it’s not too hot. And it’s not just for commoners – many professional and semi-professional cycling teams train here, so don’t be disappointed if they overtake you!
Ceramics work in Deia
Not only do many artists and sculptors live and work in Deia – and sell their craft here, there are also often workshops if you want to get your hands dirty! Remember to drop the Charles Marlow office and see our collection of local art.

Deià is the perfect destination for a tennis holiday. The village offers two municipal courts set in some of Spain’s most breathtaking scenery. You can take classes at the Residencia hotel. Ask at reception or call 971 63 9011.


Fancy a spot of golf? The warm climate, as well as the island‘s terrain, makes it a prime location for some of Europe‘s finest golf resorts. Here are a couple of recommendations:

⇒ Son Vida Golf
Urbanización Son Vida, E-07013 Palma de Mallorca
+34 971 79 12 10
The oldest course on the island and with legendary status. Head to Son Vida, just outside of Palma and approx. 45 min. drive from Deià.

⇒ Golf de Son Termens
Ctra. de S’Esglaieta a Santa Maria, Km 10, 07193 Bunyola
+34 971 61 78 62
This is the closest golf course to Deià, approx. a 30 min drive.


Villa Alconasser at Charles Marlow & Bros
Some of our rental villas, like Villa Alconasser (picture) and Son ‘Or, are situated within walking distance of the very hidden and private Cala Alconasser. Click the image to see more.

Visit the various hidden Calas in and around Deià. Those who see the advantage of pebbles over sand will really enjoy swimming and snorkelling on this side of the island. Cala Llucalcari and Cala Alconasser are among the Charles Marlow favourites. Be careful on slippery rocks and always observe signs.

For indoor swimming you can visit the Soller sports centre. It is a 15-minute drive from Deià, and you will see it on your right hand side as you eventually drop down from the mountain road.

Happy boating along the coast of Mallorca
If you relish being active outdoors, the Tramuntana area has endless opportunities. Boating is one of many – and maybe among the less stressful ones?
The gallery in Belmond La Residencia, Deia
Deiá is widely known to have an art scene of very high caliber. Don’t miss the many exhibitions – often in La Residencia – with both celebrated and upcoming artists.
Cala Deia
Why be active when you can just stroll down to Cala Deia or another rocky beach, take a dip, enjoy a sunny rest and eat some freshly caught chipirones?
