A winding and beautiful road to die for sums up well what is the road of Sa Calobra (MA-2141). If you are planning your trip to Mallorca, I am sure you have heard a lot about this road because in addition to being the main (or only) way to breathtaking attractions, it is an attraction in itself.

The 13 km road was designed by engineer Antonio Pariette and does not have a tunnel. Descending more than 800 meters from the Sierra de Tramuntana, the carretera ends at Puerto de Sa Calobra and, although short, the route is permeated by incredible mountains. I’m sure that just like me and Paulo, you will also want to film and photograph everything 😉

The best known point of the entire carretera is the Torrent de Pareis natural canyon. The place has a beach surrounded by cliffs, with translucent water and it is certainly worth visiting. For those who love an empty tourist spot, the tip is to arrive early – before the tourist buses arrive – or at the end of the day as we did.

For those who do not have as much physical conditioning, we recommend that they follow the same path as we do. Very close to the beach has a paid parking and the walk to the place is very quiet.
In addition, it is also possible to get there by boat. Instead of going through Sa Calobra, go to Puerto Sollér and take a boat to Torrent – I’m sure you will love it too!

If you enjoy more adrenaline and have a good conditioning, you can make a beautiful trail with climbing in the surroundings. The trail is heavy, lasts from 4h to 6h depending on the agility of the group. Don’t even think about taking this path without a guide, let alone after a rain – as there are many rocks, the path is very slippery.
Although I love adventures, this time I couldn’t do it because of my injured foot: / However, researching the trail I found some sites that have even more information about the route and where it is possible to make a previous appointment by email: Torrent de Pareis and Tramuntana Tours. The latter includes going by car from Puerto Sollér and returning by boat 😉

I’m sure a lot of people were excited to see this stunning place!
