Pretty cove close to village and stunning mountain drive to get here but sadly the famous part is just a tiny little slice of sea which was too choppy to swim and crowded, plus it has become a victim of its success and is now Pay pay pay.
Pay to park, 5. Cents per minute so you need to do the maths, pay for toilet and showers. You don't want to linger on the very pebbly beach or visit any cafes as you're aware the money is racking up.
There are far better beaches to visit for free. The drive to get here is far more impressive than the end destination sadly.

Breathtakingly beautiful natural scenery, we enjoyed a stunning 3 hours here (€9 euro parking for 3 hrs), exploring the trail behind the beach and cooling off in the sea. Thankfully we started our day early, as by 11am the beach was overtaken by mass tourism with coaches and ferries dropping off numerous holiday makers, drawn by the images online yet in reality finding a very crowded small beach with a view largely obscured by boats. The position of the beach nestled between the rocks makes it also very loud if you sunbathe near the sea. If you like wild rugged beauty and don’t mind an early start and a nail biting drive then it’s well worth it and worthy of a 5 star review, we knocked a star off as it’s a small window that it’s a 5star place due to the crowds. Be warned that the drive is not for the nervous, there are multiple deadman’s bends, a lot of cyclists and from 1030 onwards a stream of large tourist coaches driving down..fairly scary when you’re driving back up as the road is rarely wide enough for both of you! There are however more passing places than we initially clocked. There is also a loo (50cents) and a shower (€1) a short walk from the beach. I’d advise nervous drivers to take the boat, you’ll also enjoy fabulous views as you sail in.

Nice boat ride from Port Sóller. Big boat (+200 seats). Travelling with two kids, 7 & 9 yo. Strange itinerary, with 5 boats going out - but only two going back. For our family either too much or too little time there… Pretty big waves that the boat handeled with ease. Slow speed, all the other boats passed us. Breathtaking views. Came to the beautiful harbour, with the nastiest, most overpriced food I’ve ever been subjected to… Difficult to rate: the nature is so very beautiful - what man has accomplished with it - crap. Don’t think I’ll be going back.

Super beautiful natural surroundings. A few restaurants and bars nearby. Public paid parking is limited to approximately 100 vehicles. Access to the beach is via a pedestrian tunnel. FREE. Rocky pebbled beach. Gorgeous views. Scenic, but scary drive to access. Ferry service is available from a nearby larger seaside town.

Sa Calobra is truly awful. I’m not sure how the ajuntament could manage it better (it is clearly under extreme pressure) but I’d suggest wiping away the crappy tourist developments and revolting rip off restaurants, setting mines to blow oligarch’s cruisers out of the water, charging a fee for people who arrive by car or boat and encouraging a taste for tattoos and beer in the local jellyfish. If this were to happen, it might be possible to see again what a wonderful natural spectacle the lower end of torrent de Pareis must once have been.

Stopped here for lunch whist on tour of the island trip. It's very quaint. Nice small quiet beach, with lots of coach trip people walking up and down. There are a small number of sunbeds that are very expensive.

We visited there as part of a tour of the island.
It was pretty, there is no doubt about that. I can imagine it was idyllic before the age of mass tourism. It is well worth wander around but it can be seen is less than an hour. It is a relatively small place and quite hilly. We saw quite a few angry, tired kids there and were grateful that ours were grown up and left at home!
On the negative side, it was quite pricey, even down to ice-creams. Also, being a small place it was very busy. The two small beaches were heaving. It is hard to complain about it being full of tourists when you are one but all the pictures showed empty vistas and the beach was covered in bodies and the sea was crowded with yachts. Furthermore, there was no shade on the beach nor sun shades, that could be a problem for some.

Spur of the moment decision to take the boat from Port de Soller. Slow boat trip passing one cliff after the other. On arrival we walked the 10 minutes to the Torrent de Pareis stayed 5 minutes at the narrow pebble beach and realised what a mistake we had made.

With 3 hours to our return ferry we ventured back to Sa Calobra to investigate the restaurants. Wow considering that Majorca has closed wonderful beach restaurants in Cala Mondrago and Estrenc in recent year’s we were amazed that there are at least 5 restaurants here that should be closed and bulldozed for trying to serve trash. Self service joints that were akin to 1970s service stations.

Thankfully the boat returned to collect us but unfortunately stopped on the way back to collect more passengers in Cala Tuent. Again ugliest place I’ve ever seen with some sort of scruffy hippy shack there.

Don’t go it’s terrible.

You drive for an hour on a very tiny road with almost 360 turns to end up on a place where you need to park at a public park that cost like 3.5 euros per hour! then walk like 20 minutes even through lighted walking tunnels in the middle of mountains, to finally get to a very tiny stone beach, where to enter to the water is like jumping to a pool....yeah just imagine what you need to do between waves to get out of the water...if you want to rest you will do that on top of "big river stones" so no comfort at all and the best, once you get more tired because there are no umbrellas, no sunbeds, get ready to drive back the same route another hour just to get to a reasonable road....what a waste of time and money

We were rushed from one means of transport to another with no time in lovely Soller or Puerto Soller. Sa Calobra was very pretty but no more so than other bays on the Island. The boat trip was OK, but choppy and once you've seen one cliff face you've seen them all! In Sa Calobra there were lots of steps to get to restaurants etc - not good for people with any disability.
