We drove to the west side of Mallorca, crossed the mountains rolled down to the bay of Deia. Wow.
It’s out of the wind over there and the coves (Cala) are pure glass and swimmable. The watercolours are off the hook on this island. Mallorca is bigger than you think – 100 kilometres x 100 kilometres and is basically one enormous lump of limestone jutting out of The Med.
Mallorca attracts 10 million tourists a year! Yes, ten – mainly in the summer months. (Ibiza is only 3 mil per year). It seems mostly Brits or Germans flock here. We’re in June so the Euro summer is just kicking off – but I think in August this place would be rammed.
I hear there is plenty of rain back home. Bondi looks like 2-3 ft and fun right now (bit junkie), but definitely surfable on the cams.
