We only discover the stunning Sa Font De Sant Joan beach on our second to last day! Two gorgeous beaches separated by a sandy scramble are just around the headland from where we are staying. It’s stunning but too breezy to go swimming when we visit. The two beaches are beautiful and nearly empty dueContinue reading “Sa Font De Sant Joan”

Windmills. That is all. Dotted around the Majorcan countryside like quaint relics of a gentler time.
