A Walk in the Woods

The weather in Mallorca is turning from warm and pleasant to a sudden and intense heat with temperatures reaching 27 and 28° C, and even 29 and 30° C in some areas. This is too hot for a nice walk or hike. Unless, that is, unless you find a nice and shaded area somewhere in the woods. The Punta de n’Amer, for instance, would provide for such an outing. That’s between Sa Coma and Cala Millor, in the east of the island.

The peninsula of Sa Punta de n’Amer is protected as an Àrea Natural d’Especial Interès, and a Natura 2000 Area. The privately owned finca is open to the public. A number of themed footpaths were created to introduce us to the rich local flora, the shaded dunes or some geological revelations, all making for the nicest of outings with the blue waters of the Mediterranean only a glimpse away. If you are lucky you’ll encounter some freely grazing horses as well.

A similar walk in equally protected conditions of shade and dunes near the coastline can be had in the Platja de Muro area, in the dunes of Es Comú de Muro.

The photo was taken near Cala Millor, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 7th, 2010. The time was 12:37:09.
