The coves of Mallorca

We are lucky to belong to one of the most beautiful islands in the Balearic Islands: Mallorca.

Our beloved island has magnificent coves, where you can get away from the noise of the city and enjoy the calm and peace that the sea evoques. Rocky corners, surrounded by nature and endless views of the sea, the perfect setting for a dream vacation. Today we want to show you a selection of our favorite coves. In Mallorca we have 262 beaches, with a total length of 50 km

A cove is a section of the bay with a rounded shape, smaller in size than the beach and where its waters are calmer. Among the many options that the island offers us, you can choose between busier or more solitary coves. We start by showing you the ones on the other side of the Tramuntana mountains. Sa Calobra, and Cala Deiá, both in the north of the Tramuntana and approximately one hour by car.

Sa Calobra, (The snake), belongs to the municipality of Escorca, a town located in the northern part of Mallorca. It has the name of a small village that was formerly in its vicinity. The cove of Sa Calobra is accessible by sea from Puerto de Sóller or you can get there through the MA-2141 road, from where you can drive the last strecth of 15 km turns, but its spectacular mountain views make it worth it. The cove is the mouth of the Torrent de Pareis, and is nestled between two 200-meter cliffs, making it an open-air auditorium where once a year, in summer, the Torrent de Pareis concert is held. You cannot miss it!
