Between January and June triathletes from all over the world travel to Majorca and the Viva Blue to train, compete or enjoy a sports holiday.
Our main ambassador is the Olympic triathlete Mario Mola, who is a regular guest at the Viva Blue. Here guests will find everything they need and the very best environment for triathletes!
The island hosts countless sporting events. Minor aquathlon, duathlon and triathlon events take place practically every weekend on Majorca.
The Viva Blue is Majorca’s specialist triathlon hotel, situated on Alcúdia Bay, chosen by Ironman for its 70.3 event in May and the Full Distance race held at the end of September. Professional and amateur triathletes travel here to train and compete against an idyllic backdrop for the swimming, cycling and running races.
Guests can opt to swim in our 25 m heated pool or in the clean, calm waters of Playa de Muro. Thanks to the shelter provided by Alcúdia Bay, this stretch of the Mediterranean is ideal for open sea swimming, offering suitable temperatures from March onwards.
Playa de Muro is a paradise for cycle tourists. In addition to training on the Ironman Full Distance and 70.3 routes on triathlon or road bikes, guests can choose from a wide range of itineraries: flat, slopes or mountain trails, thanks to the hotel’s proximity to the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range.
The area surrounding the hotel is completely flat, making it ideal for cycling at a steady pace over any distance. Alternatively, cyclists can also train on soft and hard sand practically continuously as far as Puerto de Alcúdia or follow the Ironman routes which are situated just 1 km from the hotel. Those wishing to enjoy unspoilt natural landscapes can venture along the earth tracks in Albufera Nature Park. Furthermore, less than 5 km from the hotel are several trail running routes offering mountains, a range of slopes, unspoilt beaches and breathtaking scenery.
For those wishing to organise or take part in a triathlon training camp on Majorca, the Hotel Viva Blue has everything they need: in addition to help and advice on organising the camps, our staff are on hand to provide all necessary services.
