Sa Calobra is 38 kilometres away from Sóller, between El Morro de sa Vaca and El Morro de ses Fel·les, in the shadow of Puig Major (1,445 metres high), the highest peak in the Balearic Islands.
The attraction of this beach, which is a mixture of sand, gravel and shingle, is the fact that is at the beautiful, paradise-like mouth of the Torrent de Pareis, a source of inspiration for artists and where a choral concert is given each summer taking advantage of its excellent acoustics. The beach is 60 metres long by 25 wide.
The beauty of the beach attracts a significant number of local bathers and tourists arriving by sea and by a spectacular road with 14 kilometres of bends – 12 of which are 180 degree and one of which is 360 degrees – known as the Nu de sa Corbata (the tie knot) which drops some 900 metres in altitude.
In 2003, due to it having over 300 species of interesting fauna and flora, it was declared a natural monument by the Balearic government.
