Ibiza … clubbing then …
03 June 2019
Then on for the 18nm to Cala Tarida on Ibiza. This was fun … NOT. We anchored in the north part of the bay and instantly got our chain stuck in some rocks despite having carefully dropped the anchor in sand. Eventually after much toing and froing we managed to free the chain without having to dive on it.
Getting in the water was not a prospect to be welcomed – jellyfish everywhere. Yes, we have been in the Balearics for three weeks and still have not been in the water. We enquired about the stinging potential of these critters – high – and the pain level – “oh, the pain only lasts for 2-3 hours”. No thank you.
Anyway, we went ashore for a drink but no clubs in sight … oh well.
The next day we motored the 18nm to the north of the island and Cala San Miguel – hm big hotel in the bay. This looked like it could be clubland. However, we found a small cove on the west side of the cala with a beach bar and from where we could walk to one of the many lookout/defence towers on the coast. We stayed two nights but again no clubbing.
With some rain forecast and the need for some laundry our next stop was the marina at Santa Eulalia on the east coast. Big town, lots of tourists so should be some clubs. Nope – too early in the season. So, we had drinks onboard ‘Upshot’ with Peter and Alison – lovely folks who are also OCC members; and a very nice meal ashore at Ristorante Canasuni. The town is very pleasant and has everything you could wish for … apart from closed clubs.
