Striking, impressive and unique, these are some of the adjectives we can use to describe this magnificent beach, Sa Calobra is located 38 kilometres away from Sóller at the feet of the Puig Major - Mallorca's tallest mountain. Sa Calobra is always included in any "must see" list for any visitor to the island. As most of the beaches in the northwest, this beach is not sandy, it's pebbly and boats crystalline waters ideal for snorkelling and discovering the underwater world. One of the highlight of your trip to Sa Calobra is its road, a memorable twisting road around Puig Major plunging 900 metres in just 14 kilometres, turning 270 degrees at one point to loop under it - this spot is now as the "knotted tie". If you are not in the mood for the roller coaster experience you can take any of the boats linking Sa Calobra and Puerto de Sóller. Once you reach the parking, walk through some small tunnels to reach the Torrent de Pareis which begins several kilometres up in the mountains at the confluence of the torrents of Lluc and Gorg Blau. This dramatic gorge culminates in Sa Calobra beach. In summer, when the gorge is dry, you can hike inland between the cliffs, do not attempt this in winter, it can be dangerous.
