Places of Interest

 

Away from both towns there is the Albufereta Nature Reserve which covers over 150 hectares. Over 200 species of birds can be found amongst the lakes, canals and water beds such as Black Vultures, Bee-eaters, Scops Owls, Eleonara’s Falcons and Night Herons. 

Albufereta Nature Reserve is smaller than the S’Albufera wetlands which can be found further away, between Alcudia and Playa de Muro

Training Facilities

Swim Bike Run

 

Swimming

The hotel offers a heated 25 metre, multi-laned pool, whilst Open Water swimming along the Playa de Muro is only 200 metres away.

Cycling

Mallorca has been one of the main warm weather cycling destinations for many years. Your SunTri triathlon training camp is located, giving you immediate access to good flat coastal roads or, moving inland, more scenic and harder terrain.  

Running

Similar to cycling, the running routes are a good mixture of flatter, coastal paths or more undulating country trail routes as you move inland through the Albufereta Nature Reserve.

SunSport Coaching

The SunTri coaching team will work with you to develop your own training plan. You will have access to SunSport Coaching's on-site sports testing lab to help predict your necessary training zones following physiological testing.

Comments:  What an amazing week we had with Steffi, Gerry and Di (awesome coaches). The training was brilliant: lots of good IM training rides, daily swim sets (including sea swim practice) and some good bric sessions. The hotel was brilliant too: the food was delicious (so much choice and so much of it!) and the facilities were great: everything you need.
