Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Only a very few come to the most popular day-trip destination in north-west Majorca for the bathing. Although Sa Calobra offers two pebble beaches with impressively clear water, the main attraction is the scenery that surrounds the second beach. At this spot, where the Torrent de Pareis has channelled a path into the sea through enormous cliffs, nature lovers will find a clearing of astonishing and overwhelming beauty. You can bathe on this small beach too, but you definitely shouldn't miss out on the almost magical atmosphere that descends here as the sun sinks into the sea.

Cala de Sa Calobra - Stunningly beautiful moods of nature

In the north-west of Majorca, one of the most popular destinations in the Balearics can be found - the bay of Cala de Sa Calobra. Whole armies of holidaymakers come daily by bus, ship, boat and car to visit this very special place, particularly in the summer months of July and August. If you don't come by sea you have to negotiate the winding roads that lead through the Tramuntana mountains. Make sure you allow plenty of time for this because there are a few viewpoints en route that you definitely don't want to miss.

Once you arrive, you will promptly be asked for payment. The parking fees are quite steep, however we recommend that you pay them because there is a ban on parking anywhere on the streets that lead to Cala de sa Calobra beach, which can result in much more expensive fines. Only if you're very lucky will you get one of the few free parking spaces that can be found a few minutes’ walk back into the mountains.

There are good reasons why so many holidaymakers come here, but only very few come to bathe. In fact, Sa Calobra consists of two beaches. The first you can see right below as you arrive at the entrance to the area. There is a small area of stone and pebbles here, surrounded by larger stones and rocks. Footpaths run along the back and there are a few single-storey houses with terraces, one of which is a restaurant.

If you go right from the entrance you pass some more restaurants, mostly with canteen-style self-service, although the food isn't necessarily bad. Continue along the almost one kilometre long promenade by the water, past the little harbour and the showers and toilets and you are almost at Sa Calobra's main attraction. Through two consecutive narrow tunnels, which cut through the massive rocks, you reach a clearing with an astonishing breadth and beauty that will take your breath away. The second beach of Cala de sa Colabra, also called Torrent de Pareis after the torrent that created it, is situated here.

The narrow opening, which has been created here by the proverbial "constant dripping that wears away the stone”, is only around 20 metres wide and, between the enormous cliffs, offers a view over the open sea and a few yachts that are regularly anchored here. The beach is made up of light pebbles which are quite comfortable, even if you don't have anything padded to sit or lie on. In the peak summer season there are a lot of bathers on the short beach. Many of them stay to experience the spectacular sunsets here.

The beach of Cala de Sa Calobra on Torrent de Pareis is both the start and end point for a famous walking trail that runs for many kilometres through the wild beauty of the Tramuntana Mountains. It is also without doubt one of the most beautiful and unusual beaches in Majorca. If you like it a bit quieter and don't want to share this magical place with as many people you should come in the early evening before sunset, or even better, in any month other than July or August. This is when the streams of holidaymakers dry up, the restaurants are closed and a calm, almost meditative atmosphere settles in Sa Calobra, as if from another dimension.
