The road to Coll d’Honor is a hidden gem in Mallorca
Coll d’Honor is a mountain pass at an elevation of 565m (1,853ft) above the sea level, located on the northern part of the island of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain.
Set high in the Tramuntana mountain range, the road to the summit is totally paved, but the road surface is in some parts very bad and cracked slightly. It’s called MA-2100. It has pretty narrow sections.
The pass is 19.3 km (11.99 miles) long, running west-east from Bunyola to Alaró. The road is a thrilling experience, with 25 hairpin turns. Not recommended if you’re prone to car sickness. It’s a pleasant ride through the woodland.
The road to the summit is very steep, hitting an 11.1% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. It is open throughout the year. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 40 and 55 minutes. Expect heavy traffic on summer time and holidays seasons.
