2018-06-03 Puerto de San Antonio to Puerto de San Miguel, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain After spending the night on anchor in the harbour of Puerto San Antonio, which is situated on the west coast of Ibiza, we prepare to depart mid morning This port has quite a large marina and is very popular during the summer season by vessels and sailing boats of all sizes Arriving late the previous evening after a long trip from Denia on the Spanish coast, we were pleased we had a comfortable and pleasant night here on anchor in the large port As we made our way out of the harbour there was a fleet of tuna purse seine trawlers on anchor As we approached Ibiza the previous evening we passed this fleet accompanied by a large trawler towing a big circular tuna cage Once these purse seiner trawlers capture the tuna they are then transferred into the tuna cage for on growing……..this method was first developed in Port Lincoln in Australia As we leave Puerto San Antonio we pass Cala Grassio We continue north up the rugged west coast of Ibiza Another motor boat speeds past us heading up the coast The scenery of this coast is absolutely spectacular We approach Isla Bosch which shelters Puerto de San Miguel which lies beside Cala Binirras Puerto de San Miguel is a deep cala which has numerous hotels We decide to return to the lovely Cala Binirras At the entrance to Cala Binirras is the rock Islota Bernat which most certainly resembles Queen Victoria Clouds still make their appearance over the bay this afternoon We decide to go ashore in the dinghy when the skies cleared We leave the Tangaroa safely moored in the small bay overlooked by the Queen Several casual restaurants surround the beach in Cala Binirras We sit down for a coffee and a small snack while ashore Market day today In peek season this beach would be standing room only!!! Once back aboard the Tangaroa we decided to move into the other bay for the night as the wind was forecast to blow straight into Cala Binirras overnight Puerto de San Miguel is more sheltered as it has Isla Bosch protecting the entrance Although surrounded by a few hotels and apartment blocks, Puerto de San Miguel is a very pleasant anchorage Ric is the pizza chef this evening!! A fabulous thin based pizza with plenty of fresh tomato, mushrooms, Spanish salami, jalapenos, olives, artichokes and cheese……and fresh basil from our herb garden aboard Accompanied by a nice Spanish vino tinto Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
