Cala Barques is the most popular DWS crag in Mallorca. There are five areas to explore. The first is a short walk along the left side of the bay (looking out to sea), which brings you to an awesome stalactite cave known as the Cova Area. At roughly 14m high, this cave gives you the opportunity to push your limits without risking a huge fall. Further along the cliff are two more caves: left is the Metrosexual Area and right is the Snatch Area. Both lead into a giant grotto, which can also be accessed from the top of the cliff. On the same headland but a bit further over is another cave with a bulging wall to its right. This is the Tarantino Cave, the largest cliff in Barques, which contains some of the most challenging routes on the island. Further on is the impressive Muscles Cave which so far only has one route.
Parking: You can no longer park on the private lane which leads to the metal fence. You must park in the lay-by on the main road and walk down. The private road has boulders placed along it to prevent parking and signs at the entrance as well as a gate where it adjoins the road which can be closed.
