Deia and back – 28 October

On a day with storms forecast for the afternoon the coastal path to Deia (with the possibility of a bus back to Soller if the storms materialised) seemed like a good plan. The higher of the two paths is quicker but, perhaps, slightly less interesting. It is, however, much easier to find from the lighthouse outside Port de Soller. The “arrival” of the GR221 and its signposts means well marked routes that concentrate all the traffic on big tracks and hardened paths – this makes things easier and also makes the other paths even more pleasurable, when they can be found.

We wandered around the harbour, out on to the cliff paths, enjoyed a beer at Cala Deia and decided the storms existed only in the Met Office forecast when meant we could walk back to Port de Soller by the lower of the two paths. More interesting, quieter and recovering from several landslips that occurred about three years ago, it is still entertaining and a little exposed in places even if you don’t go wrong. Happily the weather stayed fine and we had another thoroughly enjoyable day.
