I've planned a couple of holidays around Charles Davis' books in the past and they were both great successes, but I don't normally buy 'updated' versions of books I've already got because they often seem to just incorporate a few readers' letters and no new research. So I was a bit wary when someone gave me this, the 3rd Edition of a book I'd used previously. Turns out, though, that this is a genuine update. It's got eight new walks (did four on our last trip to Mallorca, all excellent) and several that have been substantially changed (I can recommend the new approach to Teix from Valldemossa). It's certainly worth investing in a new copy. The descriptions are detailed and accurate, and there are plenty of amusing and informative asides. A must have for any walker visiting Mallorca.

We would recommend this book to all walkers - even if you have used the (late) June Parker walking books for the island, we think you will find this an excellent replacement. We would also recommend the companion Mallorca North & Mountains Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map.
If you know the island and have walked there before, you will find some old favourites. But there are several routes in it that were new to me although I have been going there for years.
I like the style of writing and also the helpful details, such as plenty of walk timings along the route, ascents & descents, distance covered, compass direction, recommended refreshment places on or near the route, etc.
Particularly good are the map sections, as they are really clear yet with plenty of detail.
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to walk in Mallorca.
I wish we had had more time to try more of the walks.
Great stuff Charles. Where are you adventuring next?
Finally, Charles Davis shares with the reader enough of his own preferences and bugbears to turn a detailed, factual guide into a real walking companion. One other thing, you do get a lot of walks. I forget how many, exactly but we did seven or eight in ten days but that just scraped the surface.
I couldn't recommend the book more highly.
