Caves and beach 洞穴与海滩
24.03.2009 19 °C
Today our original plan was hiking, but it was too windy, then we had to change the plan, and went to visit two caves.
We drove along the east coast of Mallorca and stopped at the beach of Portocristo to take these pictures.
Then we visited the Coves d'Arta, which is located next to the sea.
Inside the cave.
It was very difficult to take good pictures inside the dark cave, so unfortunately it is hard to see how big this cave really is.
A stalagmite. The cave is full of them.
Stalagtites are growing downwards, contrary to stalagmites which are growing upwards.
The exit of the cave leads right out to the sea.
After visiting the cave, we went to the beach again. It was a very nice beach, but it was too windy, what a pity!
Our baby still liked playing the sands so much!
The crazy wind let us can not stay too long on the beach.
When we left the beach, we saw the mountain which we planned to go today.
Near our parking place, there was a horse farm.
Now we went to visit the second cave, "Cuevas del Drach".
This one was even nicer, because there was a big lake inside the cave, where they had a very nice performance of classical music and ambient lights.
Unfortunately it was not allowed to take photos there, so we cannot show you this.
At dinner time we went to a restaurant near the beach of Cala Figuera.
We orderd the seafood rice soup, it tasted just so so, and it was too salty.
Our baby has always good mood.
