POINTS OF INTEREST / Sa Calobra
Sa Calobra is situated at 38 kilometres from Sóller, between Morro de sa Vaca and Morro de ses Fel.les and below the Puig Major (1445 metres high), the highest mountain of the Balearic Islands. The highlight of this very small beach with sand, gravel and pebbles comes after the pedestrian tunnel along the steep and abrupt cliffs, from where you can reach the wonderful mouth of the Torrent de Pareis, which has been an inspiration for artists and where there is a choir concert each summer due to the excellent acoustics. This fact explains that the beach is very popular both for local visitors and tourists on the seaway or on a spectacular road with 14 kilometres of curbs, 12 of 180 degrees and one of 360, known as Nus de sa Corbata (the knot of the tie), with 900 metres difference in level.
other points of interest
Experienced and fit hikers with walking boots will enjoy this difficult and somewhat dangerous hike that leads them to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The best season is from May to September, but even then the canyon may be full of water from a heavy rainfall, requiring you to swim through some parts! It is slightly easier to hike uphill from Sa Calobra to Escorca because the climbing passages are easier in the ascent, but you can also start from Escorca and have the bus from Sa Calobra bring you back up. There are ropes left in the climbing parts, but it is better to bring your own in case. If you’re in for a physical challenge with amazing views this hike is for you, but be careful! There have been accidents and recues for inexperienced hikers here!
This hike is beautiful and challenging due to its steep incline. Experienced hikers will enjoy walking up the large rocks while enjoying the views of the surrounding peaks. The hike is about 3 hours and does not disappoint upon arriving to the top. Although not the highest peak in Mallorca, you will see a 360 view of greenery, mountains and the sea.
Puig d’Alaró was once occupied by the Castle, but after hundreds of years it is only partially covered by the beautiful remains. The Castle has existed from before the conquest of Mallorca. The hike is about 7 kilometers and has amazing views of Mallorca, as far as Palma. The views of the mountains and the valley of Orient will be enjoyable for all hikers, beginner to expert.

Caves of Campanet
The Caves of Campanet are situated on the southern slopes of the Sant Miquel hill in the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Majorca. They have a surface area of approximately 3,200 square metres, are at a depth of 50 metres and have created a cavity of nearly 16,000 cubic metres. The tour, which lasts about 40 minutes, takes you on a pathway of nearly through different passages and chambers, some of which have small water pools.These chambers are known by such romantic names as Sala Romántica (the Romantic Chamber), Sala del Lago (the Lake Chamber), Castillo Encantado (Enchanted Castle), Sala de la Palmera (the Palm Tree Chamber), Cascada Sonora (Musical Waterfall) etc. These caves are noted for the fineness and richness of their calcareous deposits in the form of stalactites and stalagmites. Apart from their natural decorative qualities, different aspects have attracted the attention of scientists and naturalists. For example, whilst work has being carried out to prepare the caves for visitors, the fossilised remains of Myotragus balearicus were found, a species of goat-like bovidae endemic from Majorca and Minorca, extinct 4,000 years ago following the arrival of man on the islands. The caves have inspired painters such as Casimir Tarrassó who dedicated a series of signed oils to them in 1948; and poets such as Bartomeu Guasp i Gelabert who composed the ode "Caves of Sant Miquel" (1949). They have also been the setting for various films.
