THE GREEN FLASH

port of Sóller  

Renting a boat is one of the most exciting experiences the island has to offer—from the sea, the views of the coast are something else. The port of Sóller is just the right place for it due to its proximity to the rockiest, most abrupt and hard-to-access coves, features making them all the more worthwhile. A perfect outing for families, friends or couples. The most highly recommended coves are Sa Foradada, Torrent de Pareis and Cala Tuent.

Brown bread with sobrasada,* sweet “pesols”* empanadas* and malvasía* grapes from Bañalbufar* on ice, yum!

Thoughts absorbed in the infinite, tempered by the cool dusk.

Drunk on life, we let ourselves be carried away by the thrum of an old llaut* sailing through the calm waters, now pink, now intense blue. Entirely captivated by the afternoon’s gentle rhythm, we patiently wait, amid childlike smiles, to hail the green flash…*

*Sobrasada: pork sausage with a soft, consistent texture.

*Empanada: delicate flour dough, sweet or salty, formed into circles and baked with a meat or pea filling.

*Pesols: peas in the Mallorcan dialect.

*Malvasía: one of the oldest and most widely cultivated grape varieties in the Bañalbufar area.

*Llaut: a small, traditional boat in the Balearic Islands.

*Green flash: a natural phenomenon that lasts only seconds, produced at sunrise and sunset, which very few get to appreciate.
