Today's Walk: Puerto Pollensa to Cala San Vicente, Majorca
( 5 miles )
( The following
scanned photographs were taken with a Nikon AF240SV 35mm compact
Todays walk began on the beautiful promenade of Puerto de Pollensa
Firstly, we enjoyed a stroll around the marina to see the yachts and simply dream of what might be . . .
A little further along the beach, brightly coloured sails are raised ready for another days watersport
We, however, cross over the road and head inland towards the outskirts of the resort . . .
. . . passing some beautiful private villas adorned with sweet smelling, brightly coloured flowers
As we leave the
last of the villas behind, we soon find ourselves out in the open
- over to our right we get a good view of the ridges either side of the Boquer Valley, another of our Majorca walks
We stroll along a
small country lane running between low stone walls and old fig
then climb up a stony track before taking a rest to admire the views back towards the Bay of Pollensa . . .
. . . and another sighting of the Boquer Valley
After an ascent of
about 200 feet we reach the Coll de Siller pass between the peaks
of the Serra de la Punta ridge on our left and the Cavall Bernat ridge to our right
At this cairn we
get a sighting of the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea
again in the far distance
as we head towards the small road in the top right hand corner of the photograph
As the road drops
steeply down we begin to enjoy the lovely views
of the small bays which make up the resort of Cala San Vicente
A little further on and the resort's hotels come into view . . .
. . . before we reach the popular beach area
I managed to wander
past the crowds and out onto the rocks where I found a peaceful,
and sat and admired the views out to sea I could have stayed there all day . . .
. . . but after enjoying a refreshing cold beer at a local bar we returned to Puerto Pollensa via the same route we came
