Cliffs near Cala Sa Nau - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
After about 40 minutes, walk north from Cala Sa Nau passes along a cliff top with dramatic ocean views towards Porto Colom. At one point it was possible to carefully climb down nearer to sea level and take a panorama showing the waves pounding the rocks. All that was left was not to loose footing climbing back up again.

From the cliffs just north of Cala Sa Nau there are good views of Porto Colom, and also inland towards the distant mountains of Mallorca. Pleasure boats and yachts can be seen leaving the port and sailing along the coast on a fine day. Some of these end up in Cala Sa Nau, while others head for the bays around Cala Ferrera or Cala d'Or. Below is a short video of the scene.
Other landmarks on the northern walk include the 'Sleeping Dragon' of Cala Sa Nau (noise made as water pushes are through the rocks), and a varied terrain with various salt-weathering patterns and changing flora along the clifftops.
Another walk heads out along the southern headland of Cala Sa Nau where there is a dramatic sea arch and weirdly weathered and pitted rocks. Back on the beach you can get a refreshing drink at the bar as well as enjoy swimming in the protected waters of the bay.
