Sa Calobra by Boat
Sailing across the Mediterranean is an activity that all visitors to the Balearic Islands should do. Its crystal clear Waters and discovering the island of Mallorca from the water, is without doubt, a unique experience. Why don’t you set off from Sóller port on a boat trip to Sa Calobra.
Sa Calobra is a cove not far from Sóller. It is a magical and special place. It is so different because it is formed by two cliffs, from which emerges the beach. This location is also known as Torrent de Pareis as it is where the most important rivers of the island converge.
Reaching this place by boat, swimming in its crystal creal waters, and getting to know know all the nooks and crannies of the cove is undoubtedly creating endless experiences that you cannot miss during your holiday in Mallorca.
Located just before you get to Sóller, the alfabia gardens are a enchanting place. Surrounding the authentic and well preserved Majorcan House, you will find these Mediterranean gardens with many years of history.
The main House possesses a wide variety of historical elements. Due to the passing of time and the modifications that have taken place, there are examples of different styles. Among them: arabic, gothic and baroque. It was built in 1170. In order to reach the House you will cross an authentic Majorquin patio, with a stone floor, called a ‘Clastra’. From there you will enter a place full of history.
The gardens which surround the house, are the perfect place to disconnect. The water feature is one of the most well-known focal points of the Alfabia gardens, and is the first thing you will see as you step into the gardens. Also there is the ‘jardinet de la reina’, which was created as a result of Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to Alfabia gardens.
