A narrow, winding road leads to Sant Elm, the westernmost village on Mallorca. And this is where it ends. If you want to travel any further, you have to take a boat. Or you let your eyes wander from the terrace of Es Raor Restaurant. The former fisherman’s house located right next to the pier offers a marvelous vista of Sa Dragonera.
Es Raor restaurant not only occupies the spot but continues the tradition of the famous El Pescador. The kitchen is popular for its broad range of rice, paella and fideua dishes. And as you’d expect in a fisherman’s village you can choose between various fish and seafood. Whether it was the previous hike to Sa Trapa or the bay before our eyes, both the ceviche and the grilled catch of the day were full of the flavors of the sea.
To your feet, the small ferry Margarita occasionally departs from the pier, bringing day visitors to the natural park of the Dragonera Island. But you might just stay where you are today and enjoy the moment. Sooner or later you’ll surely remember the song by Otis Redding: “I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay, Watchin’ the tide roll away, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay, Wastin’ time.” What more can you wish for.
