Last November, we had the visit of a very special client: mallorcan nature photographer, Marcos Molina. Marcos hired one of our alquiler de barcos with a very special purpose: to make a photographic report of the North Coast of Mallorca.
Taking advantage of a splendid winter day, with excellent sailing conditions, Marcos enjoyed the incredible coastline of cliffs and small coves, in a day trip between Port de Sóller and Sa Calobra. Next, we tell you about this trip, thanks to some photographs that Marcos has kindly given us.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] We start this photographic report not far from Port de Sóller, where we entered the cave Cova des Vell Marí, one of the caves near S’Illeta. S’Illeta is a small islet at the foot of the cliffs of Puig de Bàlitx.

[icon name=”arrow-up”] Next stop on this amazing trip along the north coast of Mallorca, we arrive at Sa Costera, where we find crystal clear waters and a spring of water that flows from the Tramuntana mountains, especially after heavy rains.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] In Sa Costera we find the ruins of an old electricity factory, which used the strength of the spring to supply electricity to Sóller.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] At the end of the stretch of Sa Costera, we find the Morro des Forat. Behind him, a surprise awaits us.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] And so we reach Cala Tuent, a small cove with crystal clear waters, at the foot of the Puig Major, the highest mountain in Mallorca.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] After Cala Tuent, we arrive at our destination for today, the small port of Sa Calobra.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] Next to Sa Calobra, we find the mouth of the Desembocadura (y playa) del Torrent de Pareis and its small beach, a natural wonder of Mallorca. It is a very popular place in summer, although access in a small boat makes it possible to enjoy this place in a more intimate way.
[icon name=”arrow-up”] In this panoramic photograph you can see the whole area of Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis, closed by Morro de Sa Vaca, a promontory of rock close to 300 meters high (click to zoom in).
[icon name=”arrow-up”] We finish this report with an impressive photograph taken at the foot of the cliffs of Morro de Sa Vaca, which as we said before, have a height of almost 300 meters.
