Stretching down the coast from Sant Elm, on the far western tip of Mallorca, is a headland which is totally undeveloped and largely unvisited. In fact, the only real signs of life here are the goats that wander freely across the plateau and venture down the cliffs that surround it in search of food. A walk down this headland makes a pleasant short excursion, with delightful views over Sant Elm Bay and Dragonera Island for much of the route. At the end of the promontory, Punta Galinda, there are several good picnic spots and places to watch the marine world go by. The entrance to Port Andratx Harbour is visible off to the left and many small pleasure and fishing boats pass this point. Out to sea, the larger ferries and cargo ships plying between Palma and Barcelona or Valencia can frequently be seen. We return via a more inland route, with further stunning sea views as we descend back towards Sant Elm.
