    Good behavior in the sand but not in the grass, so be careful too close neighbor who skids. Cale and landing of annex south of the cala, very convenient. You can even go up the annex ashore if you leave for the day. Palma is 40minutes by bus, line 102, which drops you at the foot of the cathedral. Otherwise tourist town without cultural interest. Many restaurants catch tourists. Flee the Sherezade on the beach to the south, a scam ... Go to the "XALOC" up the street north of the cala, a real Spanish restaurant with an excellent paella.

    Bonne tenue dans le sable mais pas dans l’herbe, attention donc un voisin trop proche qui dérape. Cale et débarquement d’annexe au sud de la cala, très pratique. Vous pourrez même remonter l’annexe à terre si vous partez pour la journée. Palma a 40minutes en bus, ligne 102, qui vous dépose au pied de la cathédrale. Sinon ville touristique sans intérêt culturel. Beaucoup de restaurants attrape touristes. Fuyez le Sherezade sur la plage au sud, une arnaque ... Allez au « XALOC » en remontant la rue au nord de la cala, un vrai restaurant espagnol avec une paëlla excellente.

    Two anchorage areas on both sides of the West and East cardinal where you have to look for sand to anchor well. A concrete platform facing the east cardinal, south coast with ladders to leave the annex. Access to the street that goes to downtown by walking 10 minutes on the rocks. Convenience stores on each side of this street including a fruit vendor with correct prices. Easy access to the Marina if needed. Obviously a little motorized swell from time to time.

    Deux zones de mouillage de part et d'autre des cardinales Ouest et Est où il faut chercher du sable pour bien placer l'ancre. Une plateforme bétonnée face à la cardinale Est, côte Sud avec échelles pour laisser l'annexe. Accès à la rue qui va au centre ville en marchant 10 minutes sur les rochers. Supérettes de chaque côté de cette rue dont un marchand aux fruits avec des prix corrects. Accès facile à la Marina en cas de besoin. Forcément un peu de houle motorisée de temps en temps.

    Super large bay with plenty of sand, anchor in around 5m. Take the tender to the NW side of the bay, you will see ladders and a small slip with a ring and a post, tie up there and walk up the public access road - take no notice of the no mooring sign on the wall behind! Take a 102 bus to Palma in 30 mins, its just a few euros return. Loads of places to eat, banks and supermarkets here too.
