Cala Sa Nau Headland - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Perching on the edges of cliffs is something I just can't seem to resist. This panorama shows a view of the coastline taken from the southern headland of Cala Sa Nau in Mallorca. The salt and sea have eaten the rocks into bizzare, alien formations, pitted and jagged with pools of crystalising brine. Virtual tour taken in September 2012.

Cala Sa Nau is a small, S-shaped cala (bay) on the east coast of Mallorca. It lies at the end of the country lane between Cala d'Or and Porto Colom. At the western end of the cala is a picturesque, white sand beach, about 50m long and 70m deep, protected by low cliffs. On the beach are rentable sun loungers, a bar, toilets and showers. The area is popular with locals and Germans.
Coastal walks lead up from both side of the cala onto the cliffs. On the southern side the path leads to a headland with a dramatic sea arch and the dramatic rock formations shown here. The northern side path heads out along the cliff tops towards Porto Colom. On this route there is a blowhole in the rocks which sounds like a sleeping giant as the waves hit the cliffs. There is also a great view inland to the mountains, stunning ocean views and a changing floral landscape.
