Walking Peurto Pollenca To Cala San Vincente
Every time we visit Puerto Pollenca, some or all of us do the walk to Cala San Vincente, with the intension of getting the bus back. It is only about 3 miles, but is hot in the summer and absent anywhere to buy refreshment so take water, at least a litre each, and consider a hat, well consider wearing one that is.
Finding the start of the walk is a challenge. It is vaguely marked on the Google earth image but ask a passing local or your hotel. Once you are on the path it is easy to follow, and to ensure you are on the correct track you should pass a homestead with a pack of mad barking dogs, they drive me mad every time.
This is a walk for good shoes or boots, not flip-flops; it is rough going in parts. The first part of the walk is a climb, long and hot, but once at the top you are rewarded with a view in each direction along the valley. The path along the top is a dirt track and you have a choice to continue on it or go left into the bushes. It is easier to follow the track. You will hit a roundabout (an abandoned project) turn right and descend into Cala San Vicente on a road.
Once in Cala San Vincent go for a swim. The Snorkelling is fantastic in all of the bays. For lunch there are lots of great cafes all well priced and good, well the 3 or 4 we tried were.
We always time our visits badly, we finish our lunch and then realise the bus is not due for 90 minutes or so. What do we do? We walk back. There is another route back for half the route through trees and bushes along a tricky to find path, again ask a local. The best I can do here is say there are steps to the path to the left of the cafe near the bus stop.
There are plenty of goats along this path do not be alarmed if you hear a sudden rustling in the thicket.
