Addaya - home base!

10 June 2012 | Addaya, Menorca
Puerto de Addaya

As you turn into Addaya you pass jagged, exposed rocks that are reminiscent of Brittany at low tide and woe betide anyone who doesn't follow the buoyed channel over the sand bar and through the narrows. But as soon as you pass Isla de Ses Monas you are completely protected from the sea and there's plenty of space and depth to anchor and mooring buoys to choose from. Small fields of corn, dry stone walls, a few cows and at 6.00am every morning a glorious dawn chorus - you could be in an English backwater! Not only is the place so pretty, but the staff in the little marina are so helpful, that we've decided to leave Lazy Pelican here while we return to the UK for the summer and Addaya has become our home base for the rest of the trip! The winds have been so tricky - blowing strongly in one direction one day, then just as hard in the opposite direction the next, and the sea swells bad as well, that we've kept returning to Addaya knowing that there's good all round shelter. There's also a good shop, buses to the rest of the island and a 'pub' that shows all the sport you could possibly want to watch!
