MA-10

MA-10, the wildest road in Mallorca

MA-10 is a very scenic drive located in the northern part of the island of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain. It’s known as ‘the wildest road on the island’, going right through the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana.

The road is paved. It’s 110km (68 mi) long running west-east from Andratx a village on the southwest tip of the island towards Pollença, a town situated in the northern part of the island, near Cap de Formentor and Alcúdia. The drive involves a seemingly endless series of fabulous views of the Tramuntana mountains and the turquoise sea, interspersed with impossibly pretty villages of honey-coloured stone.

This tight and twisty road runs the length of the Tramuntana mountain range, offering stunning views. There are plenty of interesting stops along the way, so allow all day. The road will give you endless views of the Tramuntana mountain range and the sea running through pretty villages.

Located on the north coastline of Mallorca, along the way you can enjoy several hairpin turns, tunnels, mountain passes and a couple of reservoirs.  The road has several natural lookouts. It was built in 1961. There are frequent viewpoints along the road, often with vestiges of the watchtowers where the locals used to look out for pirates. Watch out for the goats. Heavy traffic on summer time and holidays season. The road leads to the infamous Puig Major climb and the scenic and tortuoise Sa Calobra road.
