2018-06-10 Cala Pi to Porto Petro, Mallorca, Islas Baleares, Spain

Mid morning with overcast conditions we depart our overnight anchorage in Cala Pi

All but one of the other yachts which moored overnight, have already left the bay
Heading east we pass waterfront houses perched on the rugged coastline near Cala Pi
An hour later we pass Punta Sa with it’s conspicuous lighthouse
Soon in the distance we can see the south eastern point of Mallorca
The lighthouse situated at Punta Salinas
Once around the flat, low rocky promontory, we head in a north easterly direction up the coast
The rugged beauty of this barren coastline is spectacular
Conditions today are not the calmest for travelling
Not far up the coast we pass Puerto de Cala Figuera, a very small narrow harbour, mostly catering for small fishing boats

Not much further up the coast we enter Porto Petro
Once settled on a mooring which was available in the bay, we head ashore by dinghy to get provisions and have a brief look around the small town
Porto Petro is a quite a delightful small town which has a secure, sheltered harbour, a few shops, small supermarkets and restaurants

Once back aboard the Tangaroa, Ric prepares a lovely chicken and vegetable green curry for our dinner…..with plenty to spare
Several other boats pick up nearby moorings for the night
Another lovely sunset……
