Port de Pollença is a small town in northeastern Mallorca, Spain, where we stayed for three days. After having listened to some interesting talks and discussions, we had some free time to enjoy the wonders that the island offers: sand beaches, crystalline sea water, mountains, and delicious local food.
First, we went on a boat trip leaving from Alcudia and explored the coast. There were numerous coves and sea caves on this exciting journey, where we also had a chance to practise scuba diving and discover the fascinating marine life. The second day, we went on a spectacular hiking trip along the “Torrent de Pareis” on a dried river bed . More than a hiking tour, it was rather a seven-kilometre adventure of scrambling over boulders, squeezing through narrow galleries and finding the correct way through the jungle of huge rocks. Although it was a very challenging route, the amazing views in the gorge and the beautiful cove where the river ends made every one of us very happy and proud of being part of this experience.
Luckily, our busy days were always rewarded with some of the finest local Spanish specialities and wine. Freshly collected fish, tender meat, seasonal mushrooms, succulent sea food, or the traditional paella were some of the tasty dishes that recharged our batteries at the end of the day.
