The road to Sa Calabra is a breathtaking winding road with many 180 degree turns and places where the road narrows to only one car width. Driving it is a nailbiting adventure but well worth it. Especially nice to go at sunset when the buses have all left sa Callabra and negotiating the twisting turning narrow road is much easier. Recommend leaving while it is still light however.

Sa Calobra and Torrent of Parreis is a place you should go!

It’s a paradise, but in high season if crowded… very crowded!

Go there by your own, I recommend by boat from Port of Soller.
Don’t go on a guided tour! You will only have aprox 2 hours to be there… and it definitely deserves more time there to enjoy it!

Mallorca's west coast is one massive cliff. Landscape is very rocky with roller-coaster-like elevations when driving. Yet it was amazing experience to drive through incredibly twisty roads downhil to Sá Calobra. You leave you car at the parking lot and while you walk for quite a while, you are still not able to see the beach. After walking through a tunnel digged in a cliff you end up in a canyon with beach. Beach is not sandy, it's just stones, size of an egg. Not so good for walking, but very good for snorkeling. Water is much colder than on east coast, since it's really deep with under water currents and cliffs embracing narrow beach are pretty high. We didn't experience any crowds, although, it was not peak season (May '11).

The best/only reasonable way to get there is via boat if you are doing a trip via boat from say Soller. The road down to Sa Calobra is horrible, completely dangerous and with way too many coaches. Coaches should not be allowed on those narrow roads. The bay at Sa Calobra is clear and pretty but the beach is rough and the last two times I have been I have had a rash (possibly jellyfish or algae). The walk through cliffs from Sa Calobra to Torrent de Parais is spectacular and the beach in the Torrent is pretty and quite unique, flanked by massive cliffs on both sides but again not the cleanest and there are no services. Nice setting though. Parking is up the hill from Sa Calobra and can be hard to find at busy times. If you go by road, in the mornings you'll be held up by coaches and in the afternoons you'll be almost pushed off a mountain with the coaches coming the other way back. Any earlier or any later it is too dark to do this drive.So overall not worth it.

We were staying in Palma with a rental car. I'm not one for boats so we drove to Sollar to go to the Cala de la Calobra. The last 7 miles were nail biting but the reward was worth it. Beautiful! Lovely promenade to walk on through a few "caves". Easy and beautiful. A few restaurants and facilities to browse there as well.

Go!

Strongly recommend you to pass all the long Canyon de la Calobra. From near the Luk. Till Port de Soleir. You will spend almost whole day. But it becomes one of best days in your life. Very beautiful views, colors, rocks, sky. Amazing experience.

We went via the soller rail via boat. A nice relaxing journey. We arrived late morning. Perfect weather. Not too crowded but a Wednesday in mid June. We walked to the canyon ... Which spectacular views! The beach was small somewhat crowed but the water lovely! Walked abit thru the canyons wish I had more time to explore. But don't wear sandals ...the rocks are a bit annoying

We spent a day on a guided tour booked with Tramuntana Tours in Port Soller, firstly canyoning down Sa Fosca (Torrent de Gorg Blau) and then bouldering/walking down Torrent de Pareis. Definitely NOT recommended on a Sunday in summer as it is very crowded, according to our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and although the canyoning experience will not be for everyone, walking down Torrent de Pareis (or up if you're REALLY game) is a must-do - absolutely stunning canyon with carst rock formations and very high, steep sides. Make sure you are properly prepared with plenty of water, food, sunscreen/hat, and robust walking shoes. Our guide explained that people have died in the canyon from heat exhaustion and lack of drinking water...be prepared!

We we under the impression from reading reviews on here that it would have a nice beach.. it doesn't so don't go if thats what you are after. It is however a stunning place to visit and I wish i had taken my hiking shoes to hike along the torrent de parais.
The road on the way here is VERY DANGEROUS! The coaches are numerous and as they swing around the bends on a road that is too small for them they could easily swat your hire car off the road if you are coming the other direction - thats off the road and into oblivion down a cliff face! I'm not a nervous driver by any means but this road is not safe. My advise is to leave early in the morning to beat the coaches and stay all day so you are travelling with the coaches returning and not against them.

Got the 1912 train to Soller, the wood tram to the port and the boat to La Calobra. Very pretty place, nice walks through the mountains. The way back is stunning!
