Sa Foradada is a rocky
point where a 10 meter diameter hole in the rock can be seen from far
away. This trip is bringing you to the special NW coast.
This is a short and easy trip. Start is from
the parking on Valldemossa to Deia road, at the kilometer stone marked
65,8. Here is a " Mirador" as well, with a great view over the Mediterranean.
There is a small restaurant as well, only open in the summer month
however. Just next to the parking is the estate named Son Marroig. You
can get a ticket here and enter the building. Also there are signs
stating that you need a permission to walk down to the rock, but we were
there on a Sunday (where the ticket sale is closed) and nobody seemed to
worry about this.
The road is pretty good, but the final few hundred meters are difficult.
However if you don't have a great desire to crawl through the hole in
the rock, then skip this part. Anyway, the legend say you will change
sex if you pass through the hole in the rock, so watch out.
Where the road is ending there is a small landing stage and a
restaurant. Only open in the summer month. Also remember that the return
trip is uphill 200 meters. This can be uncomfortable during a hot summer
Reservations on the restaurant at the top, where the parking is, can be
