2018-08-14 Cala Estany d’en Mas to Cala Caragol, Mallorca, Islas Baleares, Spain

This morning we make an early start at 7 am from our night in Cala Estany d’en Mas
In overcast conditions we motor down the coast, passing one of our favourite bays, Cala Barcas. This morning there seems to be a number of yachts on anchor in the bay
With a north easterly wind behind us we decide to keep continuing down the coast
In the distance looking back are dark and heavy clouds

 

Looking ahead fortunately looks a lot clearer
Another popular bay on this beautiful coast is Cala Mondrago
The east coast of Mallorca has many wonderful bays however during peak times, especially July and August it is too busy for us to anchor safely

Finally we reach Punta Salinas, the southern tip of Mallorca which actually is on the south eastern side of the island
The first bay west of Punta Salinas is Cala Caragol where we anchor and intend waiting for the best conditions to make a crossing to Ibiza
With nice sunny and warm conditions here in the south of the island, we spend a lot of time swimming today

There is a lovely beach here in Cala Caragol which in areas is quite private and not busy

Once the many day tripper boats had departed, the bay became reasonably quiet  with only a few boats remaining overnight
Another interesting sunset at dinnertime
