Torrent de Pareis Gorge Walk
The Torrent de Pareis Gorge goes from Escorca to the sea. Not one for inexperienced hikers, this demanding five-hour hike involves lots of scrambling over boulders and squeezing through narrow gaps in the huge rocks. There’s no easy way out of the steep gorge if you find it too much – and no mobile phone reception – so don’t try it if you’re unsure. A high risk of flooding in the winter means the hike should only be attempted between May and September – though this can also mean sweltering temperatures, so carry plenty of water. It’s all worth it when you reach the tiny, sandy cove at Sa Calobra – the gorge’s end point and a serene swimming spot.
