It sounds more like a death wish than something you can enjoy. Even if bungee jumping without a rope sounds like a bad idea, this adrenalin pumping extreme sport has grown very popular in the Balearics. You should never try cliff jumping without the correct training and support from qualified professionals. Instructors will show how to jump safely from 3 – 12 meters into the water in risk assessed locations all across the island, from Magaluf to Alcudia.
Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is a fast growing water sport where you use a kite to harness the power of the wind and glide your board on the water. By moving the kite up and down through the power zone you increase or decrease your speed and steer yourself on the water. Mallorca has the perfect conditions to learn the secrets of kitesurfing. With several hundred windy days per year, long white sandy beaches and intense turquoise waters, it can’t really get any better than that.
Mallorca has a worldwide reputation for its famous canyons including the number 1 canyon in Europe, Sa Fosca. The scenery is truly spectacular and is an amazing location to thrill seekers who descend the canyons safely, using a variety of different techniques such as abseiling, swimming, wading and rock scrambling. Canyoning is a relatively new sport that due to the limestone rocks is found in the Tramuntana mountain range. Mallorca boasts many canyons, included Sa Fosca that is considered the number 1 in the world. The canyons have been carved out by water from the lime stone during millions of years. These narrow gorges, with beautifully sculpted walls and waterfalls provide a striking setting for this all-action activity.
Many of Mallorca’s loveliest beaches can only be reached by boat. On the north and the west coast of the island, the Tramuntana mountains fall abruptly into the sea that create dramatic coves. A sea kayak allows you to explore the rock formations, blowholes, caves and quite bays at your own speed. The adventure, beauty and the tranquility of gliding silently through extraordinarily pure waters surrounded by spectacular landscapes makes this sport extra special.
Cooling off from the summer sun with sea caving is a great way to enjoy the island of Mallorca. Cova de Coloms is one of the only sea caves that you can swim into in Mallorca, and to really experience the magic. After a short swim into the cave you walk deep underground, where you should have an experienced guide that can lead you through this maze like structure and underground lakes, all the way to the heart of the cave. Sea caves stalagmites are different to land types as the movement of water affects both the formation and mineral the content of the formations. You don’t need to have done caving or potholing before as these vertical cave systems are a perfect introduction to the underground world of caving. You don’t have to go under the water so no scuba equipment required.
