Cala del Amarrado, Minorca

It took us just over three hours to motor from Fornells to Cala del Amarrado. This anchorage has rave reviews on Navily, and we were not disappointed. Being October it was pretty quiet with a few day boats coming and going, but by sunset it was only us and one other sailboat that anchored a few hundred meters away.

We spent the afternoon snorkelling and loved the gin-clear water, the schools of small fish and underwater caves.

We put a stern anchor out late afternoon to prevent the light winds overnight swinging us beam on to the swell. After a delicious dinner of barbecued pork chops, bratkartoffeln and roast veggies, washed down with beer and red wine, we had a peaceful night’s sleep.
