This island rocks & I’m having the time of my life!

This past weekend we went took a bus to the northern part of the island to a village called Deiá. We arrived in the afternoon, dropped our bags at the Refuge, and headed out to Cala Deiá. Cala in catalan means cove. This was a short hike but it was lots of fun to explore. We climbed some rocks and marveled at the gorgeous Mediterranean! The sea was rough but that only made it more beautiful.

From there, we walked up to the cemetery on a hill in the Village. It was a small cemetery but you could tell that the ones who resided there were well loved because the graves were covered in flowers. The views from here were incredible!

Mountain Village of Deià

After this, we hiked back and had some free time to explore the village of Deiá in the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains. It is such an adorable little town. The homes, restaurants, and cafes are quaint. There are lots of plants surrounding the stone streets. There weren’t many people the night we stayed and honestly that may be the norm because it is a calm, slow paced village full of culture and frequented by hikers. It has some tourist spots but is not as commercial as the port would be because it doesn’t have a beach.

Sunday was hike day! We got up, ate breakfast, and left for the Port of Soller. The hike was about three hours in the mountains along the coast. The weather was perfect and sunny. Along our walk we saw olive trees, sheep, donkeys, mountain views, and the mediterranean sea. Once we arrived at the port, the views were unrivaled. Absolutely stunning! The water was an incredible shade of blue and the rocky cove surrounding the port such a stark contrast.

Puerto de Sóller

We continued on down the mountain into the port. There were tons of little shops and restaurants. The port was full of boats and tourists. I spent my time eating some gelato, meandering through the port, and collecting sea glass. The water is cold but it felt nice to dip my feet in. ANDDDDDD I got to hang my hammock so I was thrilled!!! It was a great way to spend the weekend with mis amigos hiking and enjoy the scenery.
