Day trip to Sa Calobra
A Natural Wonder in Majorca
Sa Calobra consists of two natural beaches located at the mouth of the "Torrent de Pareis". This inhospitable landscape was formed by the erosion of the water coming from the Torrent del Grog Blau and the Torrent de Lluc.
Over the years the water has been wearing away the limestone rock, forming a descending canyon until 3,300 m long surrounded by rock formations of 200 m high. There are few beaches in Mallorca where there are no sunshades or sun loungers, Sa Calobra is one of them. It is a relatively new beach where the ground is composed of beautiful pebbles polished by the waves of the sea. It is very clean and well maintained.
Sa Calobra, apart from being a natural wonder, was a strategic military point until the 18th century. Until that time there were no constructions in this place due to the constant threat of pirates from the Mediterranean. The sea is calm and is delimited by buoys that prevent ships from entering. Also, due to being a Special Protection Area for Birds the area has been little modified.
How to get there
As it is a mouth in the centre of the Tramuntana mountain range, it has limited connections. The best way to get there is by hire car, as the bus and train services are not widely available and the timetable is limited.
The road is narrow and winding. For those who do not want to drive on this road there is the fantastic alternative of arriving by sea by purchasing a ticket in Barcos Azules that leave from the Port of Sóller.
It is ideal for cycling enthusiasts. The route is 9.5 km long with constant climbs and descents. In the "Carrer de sa Lluna", near the Hotel, you can rent a bicycle and discover the landscapes that Mallorca has to offer, especially in the Serra de Tramuntana.
