Majorca - Cove Varques

Cove Varques
The east of the island hidens one of the most beautiful beaches of Majorca: Cove Varques. This place is enough nice to appear on this corner. 

The beach is of white sand and crystalline turquoise waters. It's of reducced dimensions and access is a bit difficult for outsiders. This beach is outside normal tourist circuit.

To arrive to this cove, you have to go by road from Porto Colom to Portocristo. After the indication Cove Magraner, be careful, you have to turn right in the first dirt road. You do not worry if first you fail to find the way, I found it after three try. Once on the dirt road and after 200 or 300 m, you park the car on side and continue walking.
From parking to the cove is 15 or 20 minutes. You have to follow the dirt road to the end. You will find a locked door with a padlock and chain, and if you push the door will open the gap enough to cross.

From this point until to arrive cove, you have to follow a down path between bushes and scrub. When 
When you arrive at the end of the path , you will find "Cove Varques".
If you're luky (or misfortune, depending how you look), you can find 6 or 7 cows lounging in the beach  (respect the animals, they are in their habitat. if you don't bother them, they don't bother you). This is one of the highlights of this visit.
I recommend that until you find a place to drop the towel, be attentive to the "dung" cow on the ground, but you will be lucky for the rest of the year.

From here, you have to discover the rest of the place ...
