2018-08-24 Es Calò, Isla Formentera, Islas Baleares, Spain

Anchored off Es Calò on Formentera Island, we are surrounded by some seriously grand super yachts
During the day an unusual looking boat arrives beside the Tangaroa
It is one of the most unusual boats we have seen in our many years of cruising in the Mediterranean
Near our anchorage is an undeveloped very popular beach by the small town of Es Calò
We swam for hours in the warm clear water in the long buoyed off area by the shoreline

In the evening we decided to go ashore and have dinner in one of the local restaurants of Es Calo

We make our way to the small harbour which in ancient times was developed by the Romans
Sunset approaches as we arrive ashore
The semicircular bay has many quaint wooden boat sheds
In the distance we see the Tangaroa anchored in company with numerous other boats

We made a booking at Restaurante Es Calò and fortunately secured the last table available

Most Spanish people dine late, often after 9.30pm so when we arrived around 8pm the restaurant was virtually empty
We decide to sit outside on the terrace and have a drink before dinner
The popular restaurant is positioned by the water and overlooks the beautiful bay
My favourite drink in Spain …… a Margarita ….. Chin chin!!
Time to return to our table and order our dinner
One of the popular seafood starters here in this restaurant ….. however it needed a good dipping sauce!!
The Spanish wine was good though …..
We order the seabass cooked in salt
Our tasty baked vegetables
The fish looked uninteresting however it was beautifully moist and definitely not overdone
The dessert was delicious and certainly worth waiting for!!
