“excellent nature reserve on the edge of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

this was a real gem. birdwatchers paradise, we were very excited to see hoopoes among many other different species to ours. there is a real variety of flora and fauna and you can take a different path everytime. we walked from cala millor to sa coma on the otherside and walk taking a few hours but well worth it.there is a castle in the centre which in itself is a real gem and free, alongside is a cafe with amazing views out to sea.
do watch out for cyclists though as it is a keen cyclist area nd they do come down the hills at a speed. this is a must see for the area.

“A worthwhile break from the pool or beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Little to add to the basics of most other reviews, which describe the terrain, castle location and views, and café perfectly clearly. The walk from Sa Coma is about a mile, much of it on a gentle incline and with plenty of opportunity to go 'off piste' if one wishes to explore (indeed, if interested, I believe one can start along the beach and visit a 'geo-cache' in an old quarry as a warm up). And, of course, one can also cut the easy-paced 30m or so journey time if one wishes to rent mountain bikes or segways.
Two minor criticisms about the castle - firstly, it is not lit inside and so the descriptive boards are hard to read - and more important that makes the tight spiral and steep, stone staircase positively dangerous (use your mobile torch app!). Secondly, a bit more description / interpretation would make the visit more rewarding for those who wish to understand why fortifications were ncessary etc.

“Easy walking country”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This headland is between Sa Coma and Calla Millor and is an area of woodland and rough land criss-crossed by footpaths and trails. There is a castle with free admission and great views from the top in all directions. There is also a bar with open terraces and even a parrot which poses on command. A very pleasant half day can be spent wandering the trails.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The long dusty walk is well worth it to visit this very old castle. A small draw bridge takes you across the moat into the castle where you can climb the narrow steps to the roof to admire the views. The castle is free. There is a cafe with food and drinks next door to the castle.
