The beach of Sa Calobra comes with probably one of the nicest beach settings of any platja in Mallorca. If only it was less tricky to get there.
The 12 km stretch off the Sóller – Lluc road is an hazardous trail with plenty of serpentine bends, which makes it one of the most challenging drives anywhere on the island, I think.
It might be easier to simply catch a ferry boat from Port de Sóller next time you want to go to Sa Calobra.
Like today, for instance.
Every year in July, the biggest Balearic savings bank, Sa Nostra, organizes an open air concert in the beautiful venue of Sa Calobra. This year’s 45th concert will be perfomed by the Bronzeville American Gospelgroup, today at 17h30. Admission is free, as always. The acoustics between the sheer rock walls on either side of the beach and the beauty of the location make these concerts one of the highlights of the Mallorcan Summer.
You just have to figure out the best way to get there. If you are up to the challenge and go by car, there is ample parking space available, albeit at a hefty price. Boats from Port de Sóller depart at 13h00 and 15h00 and will return there, at the end of the concert.
