Alcudia and a walk almost to a beach.

We set off on a hike to a secluded beach that was on the peninsula next to Alcudia. It started along quiet lanes, and then we entered what I think was a national park.

It was a beautiful forestry area, and nothing likes we see in England. The land was very dry and it was full of cacti and succulents, and lots of tall spiky glasses with white flowers.

We gradually climbed from sea level to 250 metres above it with gorgeous views of Alcudia and the surrounding area.

Then we dropped down into the forest again and walked along a dry riverbed, with warnings to avoid torrents of water that could sweep us away - although no chance of that today.

Eventually we got nearer to our secluded beach and started the walk down to it.

It looked amazing and there was only about four people on the beach, but it was a long way down the hill with the knowledge that we would eventually have to retrace our steps.

And then we had to scramble over rocks and it was still a long way, so we decided to enjoy it from distance with a sandwich and a sit down.

On the way back we were excited to see a couple of wild goats that live on the cliffs, and thought that we were very lucky.

Half an hour later when we had seen at least 40 more we stopped taking photos and decided that they were absolutely everywhere.
