puesta-de-sol-mallorca-1

We leave the Port de Sóller three hours before the sunset, first walking up calle Bélgica and then continuing along the Camí de s’Illeta, until reaching the bottom of the Penyal Bernat de s’Illeta; our goal is the summit.

 

The most romantic sunset in Mallorca, Penyal Bernat

 

 

 

We will climb the lowest side, using COFI techniques, a system of vertical progression using previously fitted ropes, this system allows us to climb easily and safely even if we have no experience.

 

In 30 minutes we can reach the peak, from where we can take in spectacular views over the Cami de S’Illeta, La Torre Picada and the west coast of the island, as well as watch the most spectacular sunset imaginable.

The descent takes a lot less time and effort, some 10 minutes, plus half an hour to return to the Port de Sóller.

 

If you decide to employ a guide for this activity, make sure that they have the title of Sport Technician in “Escalada TD2, grado medio” (medium climbing).

 

At the end of the lane, just before the barrier that closes it off, there is a picnic area, a fabulous lookout point where you can take great photos and stop for some al fresco dining.
