From Palma to Portocristo and then to Cala Romantica with bus (there is no bus from palma to cala varques).

From Plaza de España in Palma there is a cheap train to Manacor and from Manacor You can hitchike to Cala Barques or take a bus to Portocristo and then Cala Romantica.

From Cala Romantica to Cala Barques:

1) on the road (about 6 km), by:

- car, 5 mins 

bike, about 20/30 mins, the only "difficult" part is the first 10 minutes, from cala romantica to the main road.

2) on the path (from the swimming pool of the hotel Cala Romantica to Cala Vascò) close to the sea (informations here), by:

- bike, 6 minutes  

- walking, 22 minutes to Cala Vascò

Then 10 minutes more walking from Cala Vascò to Cala Varques.  

(Cala Barques)

In Cala romantica:

- there are MINIMARKETS where to buy food, apartments to rent, hotels

- it's possible to RENT CAR, SCOOTER (close to bus stop on main road, credit card required), BIKE (about 8 € a day).

Cala Barques.
In Cala Barques is tolerated the bivouac in pines before the beach ("Beach 4" = camp 4 in Mallorca) (respect the place !!!), but if You let Your tent there many days police can give You tickets.

You can buy a cheap tent in one of the two Decathlon in Palma.

If You really like cave life and ... RATS (!), You could sleep in this cave:

Cala Varques: a very beautyful place.
I suggest, if you want to visit this site, to stay with the tent.
The site was a small beach for nudist and climbers (and some turist).

To reach the climbing area, when you arrive at the beach, take the way to the left and follow the coast, you can't lose the way.
