2018-06-27 Playa des Carbo, Mallorca to Cala Racò d’es Mares, Isla de Formentera We make an early morning 6 am departure from our overnight anchorage of Playa de Carbo on the south easterly coast of Mallorca Half an hour later we are leaving the coast of Mallorca heading towards Ibiza This morning we have perfect conditions for our crossing to the southern most island of the Balaeric Islands Five hours later we are nearing the island of Ibiza Approaching Isla Tagomago off the northeastern coast of Abiza Isla Tagomago has a couple of small anchorages on the north eastern side of the island The western side of Isla Tagomago has another good anchorge Cala San Vincente, a popular tourist destination on the north east coast of Abiza Punta Valls There is a sunken ship off the coast of Carbo Roig which is unmarked on the maps, so we decide to take a wide berth around the point Cala Mastella with popular restaurant ashore We continue down the coast past a few lovely bays to Puerto de Santa Eulalia del Rio Anchored in the bay by Puerto de Santa Eulalia del Rio is the super yacht called ACE Nearby is another rather large vessel called Garcon…..which looks like it travels with ACE and carries all the toys!! We enter the marina at Puerto de Santa Eulalia in order to fill up the fuel tanks of the Tangaroa After fueling up, we continue south down the east coast of Ibiza Desperate for a swim we enter the popular sheltered bay, Cala Llonga This normally busy bay had only a handful of boats on anchor in the long narrow bay today when we arrived A catamaran is moored by the tiny little beach at the entrance to the bay As we continue south we pass the main town of Puerto Ibiza, which is the capital of the Island of Ibiza Fishing is one of the important industries of Puerto Ibiza and numerous boats come and go from the port everyday……always followed by huge flocks of birds!! We decide to continue on south to Isla Formentera which we had not as yet visited Making our way to the south east point of Ibiza we can see Islas Formentera, Espalmador and Espardel We near Isla Formentera which is a small island off the south east coast of Ibiza which has only one port and limited facilities We arrive in Cala Raco d’es Mares which was the most favourable anchorage to stay in overnight A rather large 95 m super yacht called Palladium was moored in the same bay Another attractive yacht to keep us company overnight in Cala Raco d’es Mares Fillet steak and stir fried vegetables for dinner tonight A few boats on anchor here tonight Unusual sunset Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
