Conditions – Protected sandy beach Other users – Swimmers and paddlers Entry Point – Sandy beach gradual incline Surrounding amenities/Bathrooms- Cafe/ restaurant and bathrooms Getting There – We went to Majorca on a Jet2 holiday for which we fully paid (we are not receiving any payment or endorsement). We chose this package deal because of the baggage allowance which enabled us to take our inflatable SUP’s as checked in baggage at no extra cost. While in Majorca we hired a car enabling us to get to the Platja de Formentor. Map Current Weather Conditions Wee Blether OMG the water!!! Mediteranean water is just so amazingly crystal clear – at least it is in Majorca. Visibility is absolutely amazing which I really like because to be quite honest, if I can’t see the bottom it unsettles me a little (I’m just not as brave as I think I am 😕) The beach is really beautiful, we went in March so it was still fairly early in the season but plenty of people about, especially cyclists on the roads. We drove all the way out to the Cap Formentor viewing point and cafe and I really recommend the drive it was beautiful. A side trip we did was a train trip from Palma up to the beautiful old town of Soller and we then caught a tram down to the marina for the most delicious paella and sangria lunch by the water.
