Tourists who decide to travel to Majorca tend to seek the salt water of their tropical-looking beaches and the fresh water of their villa in Majorca. However, today we are going to propose a different excursion to two of the most important reservoirs of the island, which supply the city of Palma de Majorca and its surroundings: Gorg Blau and Cúber.
Gorg Blau Reservoir
Its name, in Majorcan, means ‘blue pond’, which is paradoxical because its waters have rather a greenish tone. This reservoir is located in the Sierra de Tramuntana, at the foothills of Puig Major, this mountain being the highest of the Balearic Islands with almost 1500 meters high. The reservoir was named Natural Monument by the Balearic government in the year 2003.
The surroundings are of an overwhelming natural beauty, with the imposing rocky mountains that surround it, a spectacle worth seeing, especially for the lovers of the outdoors and the nature.
Being located between Palma and Sóller a visit can be planned as a stop/excursion in the middle of the route between both locations, as both are populations of obligatory visit during your holiday in Majorca. Sóller is one of the most charming villages on the island, and Palma, the capital, is a cosmopolitan city that has everything.
The reservoir is easily reached by car, if you have chosen to rent your holiday home in Majorca with us, remember that the car rental is included. The reservoir has a parking area. Next to the lake there is a small shelter and a bench area and tables with hotplates in case you want to prepare your own barbecue.
By the way, the torrent that is part of the reservoir of Gorg Blau leads to the stream of Pareis, a corner a little more secluded and a small gem, not so well known, which we also recommend visiting during your holiday in Majorca.
The other reservoir of the area, located less than 4km from the Gorg Blau Reservoir.
This reservoir is ideal for excursions with children, among other things, because before reaching the reservoir there is a playground with picnic area. In addition, the road to the lake is very flat, and, during the journey, you can see animals like donkeys, sheep, eagles... which will enchant the little ones of the house. Another advantage, so that children do not get monotonous during the walk, is that the way is not the same as the return road as it is a circular route.
