Sa Calobra - the small village with the special bay
A small spot on this earth - about 32 kilometres northeast of the island capital Palma de Mallorca - attracts thousands of visitors every year: Sa Calobra.
On hot days we recommend a detour to the pebble beach Platja de sa Calobra below the settlement, which is only about 50 metres long and 20 metres wide and is framed by rugged rocks and pine trees. From here you have a wonderful view over the azure blue Mediterranean Sea. In the high season there is also a small bar open. Further bathing possibilities can be found in the bay Cala Tuent, which can also only be reached via the serpentine road. It lies directly at the foot of Puig Major, the highest mountain of the mountain range. A popular photo motif are the unique stone houses, which were built on the edge of the steep slopes. However, you should avoid entering the water in strong winds, as the waves and currents can be very dangerous. Directly above the bay there is a single house - it is the restaurant Es Vergeret, where delicious Mediterranean and Mallorcan specialities are on the menu. The spectacular panoramic view is included!
The Serra de Tramuntana on the north-west coast of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca is a popular destination for active holidaymakers who enjoy hiking and the tranquillity of nature. There are no water sports on the beach Platja de sa Calobra and everything you need for bathing should be brought along by yourself. Nevertheless, in the high season it can sometimes get crowded when the visitors of the Torrent de Pareis are looking for a short cool down. Both the bay and the beach are very well known and are part of the programme of many boat tours. However, there are no hotels or holiday resorts here, as the next holiday resorts are Sóller, Port de Sóller and Pollença. Only a few typical Majorcan fincas can be rented. A tip for excursions: By train from the island capital Palma to Sóller, then by the famous tram "Roter Blitz" to Port de Sóller and then by boat to the bay of Sa Calbra. The railway runs over gorges, along steep slopes and through olive groves - a moving experience. Or you can rent a car in Sóller and embark on a serpentine road adventure.
