Miquel discovered and started in the 70s what today is attracting new climbers from all over the world, if you like to climb, come, discover and enjoy what Mallorca has to offer.
When to come
The ideal time to visit Mallorca for practicing this sport is in low season. You will find a quiet island, and pleasant mild weather. Many climbers have had excellent trips over the Christmas and New Year period.
Outside the main tourist season there are many cheap flights from Europe to Palma International Airport, with lots of low-cost flights.
Mallorca is a little island with good road network, which means it is possible to visit many different rock climbing areas from anywhere. Public transport is limited. Therefore the best way is to rent a car to visit the majority of the crags, as many of these are in remote locations.
