Sa Calobra

Serra de Tramuntana

Past the turning to Cala Tuent, the road winds down to this small and undeniably attractive white-pebble cove, but it's a coach-fest during the summer crush, when carloads of visitors also descend. There is parking at the end of the road, but you will need to pay. A short trail and walkway leads around the coast to a rocky river gorge, the Torrent de Pareis, the dramatic conclusion to the torrent's descent from Escorca.
