Your secret seashore waits here, a secluded spot in stunning surroundings, absolutely unique on the island.
One of the more isolated places in a small village in the Escorca municipality on the northwest coast of Mallorca, Sa Calobra has one designated beach. You’ll actually find two small beaches to enjoy, each with grainy sand.
The “unofficial” beach sits in front of the small village tucked into the bay Sa Calobra. The official beach stretches between the cliffs at the point where the canyon Torrent de Pareis reaches the sea.
Each is only a short walk from the village, made remarkable by spectacular rock tunnels that, according to a visiting diplomat, resemble the terrain of Syria. Both calas are small, but each resides in absolutely stunning surroundings. A mix of sand, gravel, and small stones line the shore. Expect clear water in many shades of turquoise, particularly near Torrent de Pareis.
Sa Calobra provides a special beach experience for a very small price: fewer comforts than usual. With no services for beach goers and the rocky terrain, this is the least child friendly beach on our list.
Allow time to visit the port village of Sa Calobra. Officially dubbed the Coll del Reis or the Col de Cal Reis (though it is often referred to the village name), the single winding road is a popular destination for coach trips and cyclists with its many hairpin curves. Hiking and climbing make this beach one for the athletes in your crew. A music concert each July on the beach under the cliffs of Torrente de Pareis is truly a magical experience.
