A beautiful Mallorcan cove gets a clean up
Ca los Camps, a picturesque cove in the north of Mallorca is at last getting a clean up. Rubble has littered the area since a violent storm last December and there's also been a risk of more landslides due to the instability of the earth there.
Arta council has finally put all the pieces of a complicated paperwork and logistics jigsaw into place to tidy up the cove and make it safe for visitors. The council needed the permission of the coastal and heritage authorities and also had to plan the work extremely carefully as the track down to it is too narrow for wagons and as it is a protected area only certain methods of working were allowed.
Costing about €12,000, the project should be finished by mid June and will open up Ca los Camps to visitors again. Situated between the small 'villages' of Betlem and Colonia de Sant Pere, the cove really is off the beaten tourist track and is highly regarded for its completely natural and unspoilt beauty.
Crystal clear waters lap against rocks and a gravel beach, a couple of boathouses perch on the shore and there's a glorious backdrop of mountains and blue skies. With just the sound of the waves and the breeze in the trees it's a peaceful, relaxing place to while away the day.
Fancy spending some time there? Well, you can wake up to that same dramatic mountainous scenery every morning staying in Colonia de Sant Pere, a lovely, low key resort with some excellent restaurants, a bijou sandy beach and a small harbour.
Holiday home Calle Margaritas is a modern villa for 8 people which has its own pool, floor to ceiling windows to take in the views and is only just over €1800 for one week at the end of September, less than €230 per person!
