Climb Description

This climb follows the Ma-10 road between Deia and Valdemossa. It begins just as you leave Deia heading south, and finishes next to the Can Costa cafe, a couple of kilometres before you reach Valldemossa.

The climb to Can Costa is really enjoyable, with great views of the coastline along much of the route. At either end of the climb are two of Mallorca's most iconic and historic villages - Deia and Valldemoss. Both are worth exloring, with the town square in Valldemossa an excellent place to stop for a coffee.

The climb to Can Costa is open throughout the year.

Roads & Traffic

The road surface is excellent throughout the length of the climb.

There is a small amount of traffic on the road throughout the year. In spring and autumn you will probably be passed by a car every couple of minutes, but it is not much of a nuissance.





Alternative Routes

Can Costa can also reached from Esporles; it is more of a rolling route than a sustained climb from that side.

Another option is to climb from Esgleita through the town of Valldemossa; but we generally don't recommend this as the first part is on a fairly busy road.
