“Beautiful..you have to go there..”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

After a very hard drive..which gets a bit scary at some points..you reach the Sa Calobra and you find that it's totally worth the drive..the small beach between the mountains at the mouth of the torrent de pareis is just amazing..there are some bars and restaurants before you reach the beach but it's better if you take your snacks with you..and beware it could be very busy in peak times..

“An amazing beach experience”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Went to the beach a couple of hours before sunset. The colours on the sky and the rocks are incredible. A must see on the island. It involves a bit of waking but it is a small price to pay for the experience.

“Beautiful majestic canyon, gorgeous blue waters”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Took a ferry here from Soller- canyon was beautiful, a large area where you can walk anywhere to explore. World natural heritage site. Also many people swimming in the crystal clear blue waters or tanning or picnicking by the sea- a great half-day trip! But not much to do other than explore the area, so would recommend a few hours max for the visit.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you are in Majorca and you love the nature don't miss this gem! I just can't describe in words how beautiful place is, the small beaches, the cliffs, the gorge, the variety of colors, the crystal clear water, the beauty of the road through the Serra de Tramontana makes this place an unbelievable spot of natural beauty, a pleasure for your eye and a joy for the soul.

“By bike, by boat or by canyon!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We visited Sa Calobra twice during our stay in Fornalutx. The first trip we cycled 30km+ from Fornalutx and absolutely loved it - we rented our bikes from Tramuntana on the beach in Port Soller. We are in our late 20's and of slightly above average fitness, but we are by no means "cyclists" but we were determined to make it up all the hills, enjoy the views from the top and wheeeeeeeee what a ride down. Definitely a road like few others in the world! Cycling access makes for easy stops to take photos of this INCREDIBLE road too. We didn't find the roads too busy at all at the end of April, but I'm sure that changes through the summer.

Our second visit we came in by canyon - we started in Escorca and took a guided canyoning trip (again, booked through Tramuntana Tours in Port Soller) down Sa Fosca (Torrent de Gorg Blau) and upon reaching the fork in the canyons we stripped off the wetsuits and climbing harnesses and finished the day by walking down Torrent de Pareis. Take care with Torrent de Pareis - very crowded on Sundays in the summer, and make sure you have plenty of food, water, sun protection and sturdy walking shoes. Two canyons - our best day on Mallorca!

Sa Calobra itself isn't really anything too special, the beach frontage is quite miniscule and very rocky so not ideal for sunbathing. We didn't try the restaurants. Both trips we took the water ferry back to Port Soller which was quite an enjoyable ride around the coast - close to the cliffs and lots of sea caves and bird life about. I don't think I would recommend a return boat trip from Port Soller - to me the whole point of visiting Sa Calobra is actually going down that amazing road or going into the canyon itself!
