Cala Barques offers a slightly less intimidating alternative to the taller cliffs of Portochristo. The rock is generally very solid and gives a variety of features, including stalactites, arches and some rather shapely caves.
There are four main areas at Barques: the first is known simply as 'Cova' - a stunning stalactite cave around twelve metres high.

Further along the cliff are two more caves known as the 'Metrosexual Area' and the 'Snatch Area'.
The final feature here is a little further around the headland and is known as the 'Tarantino Cave' - this is the tallest cliff in this area and houses some of the hardest routes on the island.
