Sa Calobra is on the north side of the island and reached from the Ma-10. This road winds its way up into the mountains, passing through many tunnels and the odd military outpost. After this drive, you eventually get to a major turn on the left which rollercoasters its way down to Cala Tuent and Sa Calobra. Following signs to 'Sa Calobra' leads to a pay-and-display car park on the right near the bottom of the valley. From here, walk down to the seafront and turn right. Follow the path along the front until you eventually come to a series of small, well-lit tunnels. Squeeze your way through them, to emerge at the other side.
Sa Calobra is a beautiful spot but it often gets very busy, which means your climbing activity can become the centre of attention - okay for some people but not for others. The climbing is found at the mouth of the Torrent de Pareis which can be a fast flowing river in the winter months, or after heavy rain. Normally though the river is dry and the mouth of the gorge is just a dry pebble-beach that slopes sharply into the sea.
A boat is recommended, as some of the routes are difficult to pull onto from the sea. If you decide to do The Mallorcan, take a backup flotation device, because if your boat bursts you're going to have a long swim back. The climbs never exceed 12m.
