Banyalbufar ( meaning “building by the sea” from a combination of Arabic and Catalan) is a municipality in the southwestern part of the island of Mallorca. It is located in the Sierra de Tramontana (World Heritage Site by Unesco since 2011). Covering an area of 18.1 square kilometers, Banyalbufar is a mountain area connected to the sea through the Port del Canonge.


Banyalbufar consists of the village itself and the Port of Canonge. Its layout is similar to that of the rest of the municipalities that make up the most western part of Mallorca, with agricultural terraces all the way to the sea.

This natural and enduring charm is the most important value of Banyalbufar and forms the basis of the mentality and the culture of its inhabitants that promotes a sustainable touristic offer to preserve and protect, as much as possible, the natural and cultural heritage of the area.

Sa Mola de Planícia (942m) is the highest point of the municipality of Banyalbufar.

The municipality borders inland with Esporles and Puigpunyent and by the sea with Estellencs and Valldemossa.

A series of valleys form part of the orography of Banyalbufar: Son Coll, d’en Roig and d’en Cerdà, which are separated by the Puig de Les Planes (334m) which also divides the valleys of Banyalbufar and Son Coll. The eastern boundary of the municipality is between the high plain of Valldemossa and the valley of Son Coll. The western boundary is with Estellencs by the last abutment of the Mola de Planícia that goes all the way to S’Algar.
