2018-08-02 Marina Menorca, Mahon, to Cala Presili, Menorca, Islas Baleares, Spain

With the generator fixed and all going well again on the Tangaroa, we make our departure
We plan to return to the north of the island and continue enjoying some of the wonderful bays there
No cruise ships today in Puerto Mahon

There are a couple of floating pontoons in the harbour which belong to the marinas. They are an alternative to the land based marinas, no doubt at a reduced rate
Around Il Porto the motorboats are always lined up like soldiers

Numerous other boats are departing at the same time as us
The waterway, flanked by ancient ruins that takes us to Cala Taulera, an anchorage where we have stayed on numerous occasions
Quite a few boats are moored in Clot de la Mola, another anchorage near the entrance to Puerto Mahon …. this one is only used in the calmest of weather!

Once again we head around Punta S’Espero, the eastern tip of La Mola which is a shoe shaped peninsular near the entrance to the capital, Mahon
As we continue up the coast we pass all the familiar bays we have visited in the past couple of weeks
We pass Es Grao a lovely village on the northern part of the east coast
Continuing on we head for one of our favourite bays
We arrive at Cala Presili
There are several other boats on anchor here today
Cala Presili has wonderful clear turquoise water and is great for swimming
We couldn’t wait to get into the lovely clear water
Ric loves diving for special shells for his grandchildren
Tangaroa in Cala Presili in Menorca
Often there are backpackers setting up camp on the remote beaches in the Balearics ….. these two decided to have a read and a rest on the beach before preparing for the night
To the north east of the bay is the Favaritx lighthouse
Another Menorquin arrives in the bay
Sunset over Cala Presili
A beautiful glow over the yachts moored beside us
