The rugged but picturesque Mallorcan coastline provides for dramatic cliffs plunging into aquamarine depths and secluded sandy coves. Sun, sea & sand are in abundance. The northern pocket of Mallorca is away from the hustle and bustle of the island's largest city of Palma and offers some of the islands best swimming spots. By far the most dramatic beach setting we visited was Cala Barques, part of the tiny holiday village of Cala Sant Vicenc. It is a pebbly beach, no good for sand castles, nestled in amongst high rock cliffs. IMG_4324.jpg IMG_4318.jpg
Dotted around the Badia de Pollenca we visited Tamarells, IMG_4326.jpg IMG_4340.jpg IMG_4363.jpg IMG_4361.jpg
Platja de Formentor and Bonaire, IMG_4456.jpg IMG_4455.jpg

the highlight being Formentor which demanded a second visit.

The beach is lined with shady trees providing welcome relief from the sun and make for a delightful picnic spot. IMG_4523.jpg
We traveled to Formentor via a tight windey road with a clear drop into the sea on one side for most of the way.IMG_4374.jpg

Great to see you all having a fabulous time - Angela, the smile is worthy of 12months planning - it's raining here & 16 degree C. Oliver, Joseph says you have been away too long - he misses his friend and he tells everyone you are in Scotland and Spain. Take care...

Thanks Monica, Oliver loved the message from Joseph - I think it gave him a bigger smile than even the Eiffel Tower today!
