Sailing, Mallorca, Spain

The story behind the image

A warm and sunny day. An island in the Mediterrean Sea. An isolated bay. And you are alone on your brand new sailing yacht enjoying the clear blue water…

If only there wasn’t that nearby village called Sa Calobra, a tourist magnet with many attractions like a steep serpentine road leading down to the sea level, a canyon with its nice beach, a tunneled walkway, several hikes, and restaurants for the tired tourists!

I captured this photo from that tunneled walkway as it expresses the idea (or is it a fantasy?) of a sailing trip around Mallorca. I bet there must be more secluded bays and more isolated beaches around Mallorca that enable you to enjoy your privacy. Love it.
