Deep water soloingis a type of rock climbing, and has the particularity that it takes place on low cliffs, on rugged coastlines, without ropes so that one can fall directly into the sea. This is why Majorca, thanks to the warm Mediterranean and the many coastline areas of low cliffs and strong and easily practicable rocks, is one of the most recommended places in the world for this spectacular outdoor sport.
Many of the great names of this type of rock climbing above the sea have become proficient on the cliffs in Majorca, the place where this striking sport is said to have originated and which has already celebrated various official competitions both in Bilbao and Barcelona.
The average height of the cliffs where you can practise deep water soloing climbing is around 10-20 metres (maximum), as from this height the fall into the sea is safe, according to those who have practised this sport for some years, in such areas as the Cross in Santa Ponsa or Cala Varques on the east coast of Majorca, just a short distance from various of our hotels in Majorca.
Cala Ferrera, very near to Residencia Son Floriana: Cala Varques, more to the north or Cala Llombards, to the south, are some of the well known areas to practise deep water soloing in Majorca, according to the book written by Miguel Riera, who is one of the most outstanding athletes of this type of climbing in Spain.
