SERRA DEL CAVALL BERNAT-THE WHITE CUILLIN OF MALLORCA

Another day amongst spectacular limestone ridges of Mallorca. We headed up to Port Pollenca and explored the fantastic ridge walk/scramble of Serra Del Cavall Bernat, or as I renamed it  'The White Cuillin of Mallorca'! There are amazing rock towers along the entire ridge which plunge down over 300m to the sea. The highest point is only 350m but the views are fantastic. Lots of feral goats on the islands mountains and huge numbers here, scrambling about everywhere. Other wildlife spotted included Black Vultures, Alpine Swifts, Butterflies of various varieties. Another very warm/hot day and those blue, blue skies.

Hi Gary,

I check your site quite often for conditions etc :)
We did the Serra Del Cavall Bernat last September for the first time after seeing it the year before. Quite spectacular for an easy ridge!
Also glad we didn;t wear shorts. You can se our pics at:
