We left the mooring in Espalmador on Thursday morning before 0800 and motor- sailed again heading up the west coast of Ibiza for the next anchorage, as recommended by Richard on Sealion with whom we had drinks last night.

It was an uneventful trip saw no boats or wild life but the scenery of the coast line was quite spectacular. Tall craggy rocky coast with off lying islands and the sea was a deep midnight blue. We reached the designated cala around lunch time and were able to select a suitable spot well tucked in to the bay and protected from the apparent wind. There were 5 other boats there but plenty of room for us all. Having had a delightful swim from the boat followed by a snorkel around to view the anchor and the fish we took the dinghy ashore for an explore. Found the supermarket and bought the necessary fresh supplies before returning to the boat for another swim and supper. Unfortunately the wind dropped which allowed us to sit across the swell so the night was not as restful as we had hoped. Moving on to Mallorca tomorrow.
