Cala San Vincente (Anchorage)

We anchored overnight here. We had good holding, but we saw an old wreck of a boat on the rocks. Nice restaurants and bars. Laid back resort village.

We also hiked back here over the mountain when we were docked in Pollenca.

Ancient tombs (Excursion)

Facinating ancient tombs (about 10 ) carved into the hillside just a short walk from the anchorage. They are not signposted but it is the small hill at the back of town.

Cala Boquer (Anchorage)

A beautiful and peaceful anchorage with goats and a few hikers.

We rowed ashore and hiked for less than an hour up the foot path towards Pollenca.

Cala Boquer to Pollenca (Hike)

We only hiked as far as the summit above Pollenca and were met by many hikers coming up from Pollenca. This is a beautiful and easy walk.

Hotel Formentor moorings. (Mooring)

Here they have moorings laid and one may not anchor. We picked up a mooring and a boat came round to charge us €12 for the mooring.

We found out later that if we had picked up the moorings marked "Fondeos Gratuitos" we would not have to pay. They did not volunteer this information, even though we were one of the few boats there, and there were many moorings available.

We went ashore to explore the pine forrest beach and had a drink at the beach bar.

Formentor (Hotel)

Pollenca to Cala San Vincente (Hike)

We set off on this hike from the marina armed with a primitive map that we had been given, but we kept coming up against big farm fences and gates and no trespassing signs.

Completely coincidently we came across several other hikers in separate groups (I think there were about 12 of us) that just happened to be trying to go the same way.

Emboldened by our safety in numbers, we all climbed over a fence and continued up the mountain path. It was a very worthwhile trip to the summit and then down the winding road to Cala Vincente. Breathtaking views from the top.

We had a drink in Cala Vincente and then walked out to the tombs at the back of town and finally hitch hiked a ride to the town of Pollenca (about 2 miles from the Port of Pollenca) and then caught a bus back to the port. What a wonderful day!

Somewhere here we jumped the fence (Hike)

Town of Pollenca (inland) (Excursion)

There is a regular bus service from the port to the town. We hitch hiked here from Cala Vincente and caught the bus back to the port.
