Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

Colonia Sant Jordi

Colonia Sant Jordi! This place feels more Spanish than most resorts in Majorca, NO CHIP shops. Great beaches, very relaxed.

Alcudia Snorkelling

Bus to Alcudia, 20 minute walk to bays to the the North. Good snorkelling. Walked back to Puerto Pollenca. Cold Lager required.

Walking Peurto Pollenca To Cala San Vincente

We did it again got the timing all wrong and ended up walking there and back to Cala San Vincente. Still we had a good swim.

Boquer Valley Walking

Longish hot walk along the Boquer valley today. The ridge to the left is amazing. Greeted by old goats at the end and into the water to cool off.

Palma Snorkelling

Fantastic city, lots to see and do, OK swimming and snorkelling

Formentor Snorkelling

We took a vastly overpriced boat to Formentor beach today, I'm still shaking at having to part with so much for so little. Still the snorkelling is good. Got the bus back!

Cala San Vincente Snorkelling

We got a bit bored so wandered over the hill to Cala San Vincente for a swim instead. It is wonderful. Deep clear blue water.

Peurto Pollenca

Back in Peurto Pollenca. I feel like I have come home when I get here, love this place. Now, swim first or food?

Colonia Sant Jordi Snorkelling

Some great snorkelling here, but the best spots take a bit of finding. Swimming ia great all over, with lots of sandy beaches and quite shallow for in most places.

Alcudia

Always a good spot to visit, an interesting old walled town, with good shops and restaurants. Having said that we just had a butty.

Ses Illetes Snorkelling

Got the number 3 bus whilst the rest of the gang went shopping, I went swimming. It's 40 degrees, Swimming! This is a fabulous spot to Snorkel. Had to wander round an army check point to get to the best spot.

Palma

In Palma, the capital of Majorca a vibrant interesting and beautiful city with ports, beaches and great shopping apparently, but I want to go swimming.

Cala San Vincente

Lunch in a great Cafe in Cala San Vincente again, love it.

Puig De Maria Monastery Walk

Now for a nice hot walk up a steep hill in the midday sun :)

Peurto Pollenca Snorkelling

Not a bad place for a spot of swimming and snorkelling, had a great time, big fish and these large clam shell things! Great fun.

Boquer Valley Snorkelling

Calm as it gets here in the Boquer today, perfect for a dip. Few jellies around and lots of fish, water is crystal clear. German lady got a leg sting, big screams.
