General information:

Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearic archipelago. It lies between parallels 39 º 15 '45 "(Punta de Ses Salinas) and 39 º 57' 15" (Cap de Formentor) and between the meridians 2 ° 21 '23 "and 3 º 39' 22". It's shaped like a butterfly with outstretched wings with its axis oriented SW to NW. Its surface is of 3,626 km2, 96 km from E to W, 76 km from N to S and a steep coast perimeter of 416 km with three large bays: Palma to SW et Pollença and Alcudia to NW

It sets up in a central area, the Pla de Mallorca, which covers 21.6% of its surface, and located between two roughly parallel mountain ranges: the Serra de Tramontana, with nine peaks above 1,000 m, with the Puig Major ( 1,445 m) the highest, and the Serra de Llevant, softer and whose most prominent peaks are the Puig de San Salvador (510 m), Ferrutx (519 m) and Morell (562 m). Outside these ranges also highlights the Puig de Randa.

Its population is about 800,000 habitants, about 500,000 of whom are concentrated in the Bay of Palma and the rest is distributed to the remaining territory. The total number of municipals is 53.

Mallorca has four major highways leaving from Palma to Andratx, (Ma1), Alcudia (Ma13), Manacor (Ma15) and Llucmajor (MA19). The roads generally are not usually crowded, but excluding highways, many of them has whimsical curved stone walls and side with the face is not recommended. As many tourists traveling unfamiliar with them or with the car they have rented, it is not trusted or distracted.

Of course, the East Coast is more luminous in the morning and the West Coast in the afternoon. On the east coast can be seen at sunrise, rising from the sea, although it should wake up early enough, and at the west lying in the sea, without wake up early.

In summer it is preferable to make the excursions in the afternoon, when the sun begins to decline, and take the morning to swim at beaches.

Cala Anguila is characterized by its clean waters, except during temporary surge in the south and dirty with the remains of the seabed. Then is better Cala Mandia, nearly perpendicular to Cala Anguila and east-facing,. However, in summer, winds from the east are the most common, as Cala Anguila is the beach ideal. At solar noon (14 hours) is when there is more waves, due to thermal winds, reaching more intensity, and when to take extra precautions with the sun directly overhead. It is also where the beach is more crowded.
