Porto Colom

We decided to stay a few days in Porto Colom as the winds were still forecast to be high and we knew that Maria could catch a bus directly to Palma for her flight on Sat. The harbour is lovely with room for 50 plus boats and many bars and restaurants along the quayside. It is relatively unspoilt and doesn’t have the same touristy feel that other harbours on Mallorca have had. Maria kindly treated us to a meal at one of the poshest, Sa Llotja, on Thursday evening where we had a great three course meal with wine and coffee for €35 each.

We decided to explore Porto Colom on Friday but beforehand we met up with an old friend of Liz’s, Nicole. As the wind died in the evening we had a BBQ on the boat watching the sunset and the toings and goings of the harbour.

Saturday morning we waved goodbye to Maria and then shopped for food and thought we would just sort out a few repairs before making our way to Porto Pedro. However, the wind picked up to 20 knots inside the harbour and the repairs took hours rather than minutes so we decided to stay another night.

Tomorrow we will go to Porto Pedro as it is just down the coast before heading off to Menorca on Monday.
