What is Sa Foradada?
Sa Foradada is a peninsula to the south of the Port of Sóller, about 5 nautical miles away.
It is an extension of the Serra de Tramuntana, which extends about 400 metres inland and ends in a rock cross-formation that forms a small port open to the south.
The main feature of the complex is a large natural hole formed in the rock of the last section of the peninsula. The name derives from this fact, because in Mallorca “Foradada” means hole.
It is a unique spot that is difficult to reach by land, so Barcos Azules gives you the opportunity to enjoy this privileged landscape in peace and quiet and admire one of Mallorca’s most beautiful sunsets.
