At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

This delightful location has a great holiday atmosphere. The routes are less friendly than at other venues nearby, since a good number have fierce undercut starts requiring full power the moment you step off the ground. Once the starts are conquered however, the style switches to superb fingery wall-climbing. Most of the routes have been re-equipped with staple bolts; treat those which haven't with extreme caution.
The cliffs of Tijuana are situated on the southeastern tip of the Island. The drive to this corner is relatively easy, although it can take a while to negotiate all the small villages and towns encountered on the way. On entering Santanyí village, follow signs for 'Cala Figuera' and 'Cala Santanyí' through the village. From the outskirts of Santanyí continue for around 2km until a roundabout is encountered. Go straight on, signed 'Cala Santanyí ll'. (Don't turn right, signed 'Cala Santanyí l'.) About 200m after the roundabout, turn right - signed to 'Cala Santanyí', then take the first left (unsigned) and then the first right (signed 'HR Palmaria'). Continue along this road, to a roundabout with a tree. Park here carefully as it is a residential area, and walk past a barrier in the road to a tower on top of the cliffs. Follow the cliff-edge path rightwards (looking out) until the path drops down to the base of the crag.
