Authentic Mallorcan life
If you are interested in experiencing a little authentic Mallorcan life and want a break from the busy tourist areas, Campanet is definitely worth a brief detour. Quilted with luscious sheep-grazed meadows and surrounded by stunning landscapes, this small town of around 2600 inhabitants is an appealing village with a central square dominated by a 18th century looming Gothic church.
Have your camera ready to capture bird’s-eye views of northeast Mallorca and the sparkling sea that stretches out around the coast. Listen to your pilot talking about the lush island landscape mapped out beneath you, and learn about the pristine white-sand beaches that typify northeast Mallorca. After floating through the air about one hour, it’s time to return to ground level, so, follow your pilot’s instructions for a smooth landing.
Located above picturesque and little-visited countryside, the town of Campanet is not on the radar of most tourists and the majority of the residents work in the nearby resorts therefore during the Summer months, you really can feel like you have escaped people altogether.
Very well connected to several major towns and resorts by the road network, Campanet has many natural springs which flow down from the mountains and is well-known for its spring water.
Caves of Campanet
A good time to visit is on a Tuesday when the market is open. For shopaholics, the nearest large town is Inca; which is famous on the island for leather goods and weekly market.
They say that the best way to get to know the island is through its traditions and local products, if that’s the case then Inca is all about the market, leather, wine, Quely biscuits and some of the best Ensaimada on the island.
Local attractions include the caves of Campanet with natural rock formations and underground lakes and the 13th century chapel of Sant Miquel.
The area is extremely popular for hikers, it has stunning mountain scenery and a variety of hiking routes of different grades.
