Cala d'Egos beach

Another lovely hike on a sunny day - is it always like this in Mallorca?

This time we set off from our 'quirky' hotel in Andratx, over the harbour bridge and up the mountain on the other side.

It was a long way up, and one of those climbs when you think that you are nearly at the top but then you get there and see a bit more to climb, then you think again that you are nearly there, but you see a bit more to climb. Do that about seven or eight times and then we really were at the top.

Then it was a stroll a good walk along the top and then down towards the beach at Cala d'Egos.

The water was very clear and a beautiful colour, and I just had to test the temperature. Actually quite refreshing, but I wasn't up for a swim.

Then, of course, it was back uphill again, which I actually found much easier than climbing down.

Towards the end Darren warned me that the path was particularly slippery and about two seconds later I agreed with him as I landed with a thump on my bottom.

Brilliant outing overall though with fantastic scenery and the equivalent of over 160 flights of stairs climbed.
