This was the first walking guide for Mallorca, the guide that won Sunflower the Sunday Times ´Oscar for best travel guide - and eventually made the island one of the most popular walking areas in Europe. The author has lived on Mallorca for over 35 years and knows the island intimately.

The guide features information panels on Mallorcan customs and landscape which complement and add interest to the text describing the drives and walks. 10 car tours (with accompanying touring map), 60 long and short walks (each illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps), 27 picnic suggestions.
