This pocket-sized full-color guide is designed for walking in Mallorca with a gastronomical touch, using public transport. Even "non-walkers" will appreciate the recommendations for Mallorca restaurants.
The walks are dotted all around the island, with most in the west and mountainous northwest. Note: There is some overlapping of walk routes between this book and Landscapes of Mallorca, so do use the "Look Inside" facility to compare coverage in the two guide books.
For each suggested restaurant there is a photograph of the décor and one of their dishes, plus sample menu, price guide, opening times and a recipe for one of their specialties.
Other sections include: planning your trip, logistics on arrival, local markets and specialties, glossary of local food terms, and a restaurant mini-vocabulary. A special feature is the emphasis on natural local foods suitable for those with food intolerances. All recipes have been made by the authors and are known to "work."
10 walks and 2 excursions (one long trip by train, tram and boat, the other a train ride to the center of the island); plan of central Palma; island map; large-scale (1:35,000) topo maps for the walks. Free online update service with specific route change information on Sunflower Books' website, maintained daily.
