Walking in Mallorca, June Parker and Paddy Dillon - "Walking in Mallorca" quickly established itself as the most comprehensive guidebook to the island, with particular emphasis on the rugged Serra de Tramuntana. June Parker's routes have been walked afresh, carefully checked and amended where necessary, and are now presented with new mapping and plenty of colour pictures. This book will entice walkers well off the beaten track, enabling them to explore the most diverse terrain around the island. Rugged mountain walks contrast with remote valleys, while waymarked trails give way to long-forgotten mule tracks and hidden mountain passes. Some walks run close to breathtaking cliff coastlines, while others pass through sleepy villages where welcome refreshment can be obtained. Published Oct 06 K

Mallorca Car Tours and Walks, Valerie Crespi-Green - This is one of the books that won Sunflower Books the Sunday Times 'Oscar' for best guide book publisher and since 1984 the most widely-used walking guide for Mallorca. It was the first walking guide for Mallorca, published when the island had a reputation as a haven for 'larger louts'. Sunflower's author knew better, and Mallorca is now one of the most popular walking areas in Europe (and a favourite destination for bird-watchers, too). This completely revised sixth edition updates the routes and maps to reflect changes since the previous edition was published. Whatever your age or hiking abilities, there's something here for you - from coastal strolls to extremely challenging climbs and descents. Car tours and picnic suggestions are included, as are timetables for public transport. June15

Ibiza and Formentera Walks and Tours - Until the sixties, Ibiza belonged to the Ibizans, and only a few artists, poets and writers lived in this paradise. Then the flower-children arrived, the hippies and drop-outs. In the last decades however, mass tourism has taken over and unfortunately destroyed much of the charm of Ibiza and Formentera. But not everything on the islands has been spoiled. 'Bed and burgerbar' building has reached saturation point, and a visit to the pine islands (the 'Pityussae', as the Greeks called them) is still worthwhile today. There's an unending wealth of hidden beauty spots to be discovered, and this book helps you to find the best of Ibiza and Formentera by car, bicycle, or on foot. 3 car tours (with accompanying touring map), 23 long and short walks and 5 cycle tours (each with 1:40,000 topo map), 16 picnic suggestions for Ibiza; 6 cycle tours and 1 walk for Formentera (with accompanying 1:40,000 topo map). Plans of Eivissa (Ibiza Town), Sant Antoni, Santa EulÓria. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.
