Insider's View

Majorca Insider I can only say that this is one of the most spectacular coves on the eastern curve of Palma Bay

I have a very funny memory about my last visit to beautiful Cala Blava or Blue Cove. It was by boat and some Majorcan friends were showing my husband and me what great sailors they were while we stood on the deck like a pair of redundant deckhands. As they tried to navigate the boat towards the shore, they lost control and went steaming towards an elegant yacht in our path. A major collision was avoided by the quick actions of the other yacht owner!

Aside from that memorable little incident, I can only say that this is one of the most spectacular coves on the eastern curve of Palma Bay. It's quite a serene, residential zone set amid craggy rocks and dramatic cliffs and has breathtaking views out to the turquoise sea. Much of this part of the coast is off limits which means it remains un-spoilt, natural and uncluttered. There are some excellent little rocky inlets where one can take a cool dip and the main beach is sandy with crystal clear waters. Towards Bella Vista there is the Calò des Cap d'Alt and Cala de Cap Falcó for bathing in glassy emerald waters.

About a mile from Cala Blava is the restaurant El Puerto Marisqueria which has a fantastic view from its terrace over the Bay of Palma. Its speciality is fresh fish, although it offers an excellent choice of dishes and a mean Crema Catalan for dessert! If you're into celebrity spotting, novelist Jeffrey Archer has a stunning home aloft the cliffs at the end of the bay where he pens his tomes, and if you're looking for nightlife, take a brisk stroll to Arenal for cocktail bars, discos and karaoke specials. Portixol, a charming little enclave with harbour on the edge of Palma is only fifteen minutes away by car and has a myriad of good tapas bars and restaurants such as my favourites Sa Roqueta and Rocamar which serve up delicious fresh sea platters and the best catch of the day.
