2018-07-30 Cala Fornells to Playa Cavalleria, Menorca, Islas Baleares, Spain After a couple of lovely days on anchor in Cala Fornells and a couple of lovely nights out to dinner, we make our departure To the south east in Cala Fornells is the island, Isla Sargantana Fornells is a delightful town to visit If one prefers, there is a marina available to berth one’s boat One can always anchor in this small bay by the town, however with so much water traffic passing by and coming and going from the marinas, it can become uncomfortable The local church overlooking Cala Fornells Behind the long line of holiday houses is the old lookout tower which in recent times has been converted to a museum Once out of Cala Fornells we again head west, passing Cabo Cavalleria to visit one of Nico and Montse’s favourite beaches of the area Firstly we pass Cala Viola de Ponent a tiny bay with a small beach Next we come to the long, narrow inlet of Puerto Nitge which in ancient times was a Phoenician harbour (1600 BC) and in later times it was a Roman harbour (200 BC) …..what a history Perhaps some of the remains nearby date back to those times We approach Cala Cavalleria which is the beach we were recommended to visit Several boats are already anchored off the beach It is fairly shallow towards the dark cliff so we anchor out a little There are lots of people enjoying the sun and the beach today …. beach patrol in the yellow tops make sure nobody gets into trouble while in the water It is time for us to get some exercise We head towards the north eastern head of the beach We swim together to the next bay called Cala Rotja which has amazing red cliffs and red sand Another selfie!!!! Back to the boat after a fairly long swim For most of those visiting the Cavalleria beach for the day, there are a lot of steps to climb at the end of the day to get back to their vehicles or transport The hills behind the beach are glowing as the sun lowers in the sky An amazing sunset tonight Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
