Torrente de Pareis

Torrente de Pareis is reached by crossing the Sierra de Tramontana and heading down towards the Mediterranean. Stretching more than three kilometres, this canyon flanked by towering calcareous rock walls was named a Natural Monument in 2003 thanks to its sheer beauty. What’s more, given its climate and relief, the area is rich in flora.

Take care on the drive, though, as the road is full of bends and can be slightly hair-raising at times. However, it’s well worth experiencing while admiring the jagged coastline of the Sierra de Tramontana. The starting point is the village of Lluc and en route you can stop at a small viewing point to admire vistas of the Med.

The ending point is the beach of Sa Calobra, in the municipality of Escorca, and where you’ll see the mouth of the Torrente de Pareis. It’s the typical picture-postcard view of Mallorca. The calm and serenity of this hidden corner is perfect for closing your eyes and switching off from the daily routine. Sa Calobra is an amazing beach, actually, but it’s best to go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds.
