Take Cala Salada Tour For Your Best Experience
The caves at Ses Fontanelles are well-known for cave paintings which dated back to the Bronze period. If you are curious to explore the area, right before you arrive at the entrance of the bay, turn off to the right and drive up the camino (dirt track) as far as your car can go. It is recommended to drive a 4X4. When your car can't take any more, you need to park it and climb the cliffs to the caves at Ses Fontanelles. Make sure that you're in a good health; the walk is long. Yet the views from the cliffs are just fascinating. Don't get disappointed when you find out that the caves are protected by iron bars meaning that you won't be able to see much of the Bronze period paintings. If you're thirst for a more adventurous activity, you can climb down the enormous stone steps to the sea, where you can bathe in complete privacy.
At the far corner of Cala Salada, you can find a beach restaurant simply called Cala Salada as well. It is widely recognized among the locals and visitors; it offers great traditional dishes such as seafood paella. Ice creams and cold drinks are easy to grab at a kiosk.
In Cala Salada, the sunset is amazingly breathtaking. You can see how the sunlight illuminates in an orange color and the small cove becomes a magical place.
