Photospotting in Mallorca

During our holidays in Mallorca, one of the most vivid impressions was a walk along the embankment to the cape, over which the planes were landing. Go read the post if you want to watch the arrival of planes at the airport of Majorca with us.

1. Palma de Mallorca Airport is a major Spanish airport. Just imagine the passenger turnover of this airport is more than 28 million people a year! And this is on an island measuring 70 by 50 km.
2. On the busiest summer days, the airport handles 1,100 aircraft take-offs and landings daily, only Heathrow London has such a load.
3. Even lying on the beach of our resort town of El Arenal, we observed a huge number of aircraft in the sky and wanted to see them closer.
4. On the map we found the name of this place – Es Carnatge – and the next day, taking drinks and a small snack, went to this cape.
5. The observation cave is located right by the Playa de Palma beach in the place where the town of Can Pastilla enters the capital of the island of Palma de Mallorca. Immediately on the picturesque observation deck are not very interesting ruins of ancient settlements and a small park. The cape is perfect for observing aircraft as well as for meeting the sunset.
6. Between the two runways of the airport and the coastline there is a highway, and closer to the coast is a cycle path. Therefore, here many cyclists make a halt and join the amateur amateurs.
7. Depending on the wind, take-off or landing of aircraft is carried out from the sea. We were lucky that day, and the planes landed from the sea.
8. For sophisticated photographers, spotting in Mallorca may not seem so interesting, because Most of the planes arriving on the island are the workhorses of the narrow-body Boeing 737 and Airbus 319. Therefore, we will not see such wide-bodied engines as Airbus A380 or Boeing 777.
9. The plane of the famous European low-cost airline Ryanair, which flies to Majorca from 58 European cities, appeared on the horizon. However, it is not interesting to shoot them, because Ryan exploit only the Boeing 737. In the livery of the plane, you can see the logo of the airline – the golden angel, combined with the harp. By the way, another famous Irish brand – Guinness beer – also has a golden harp.
10. Most tourists in Mallorca are Germans and Englishmen, so most flights are from Germany and the UK. Here is the next plane of the Jet2.com low-cost airline. This company also exploits only the Boeing 737. Pay attention to the wing tip, it is made in the form of a scarlet at the Boeing when the end of the wing rises. This ending is done to save fuel.
11. Plane of the Italian national carrier Alitalia, which flies to Majorca from Rome, Milan and Bologna. Italians love Spanish resorts for great freedom, great beaches and low prices.
12. Airbus A320 Spanish budget company Vueling. Vueling flies to Mallorca from 30 cities in Europe, and it is also the largest Spanish airline.
13. Another 20 minutes watching the aircraft and heading for a walk to Palma de Mallorca.
14. Exhausted from the heat, we do some portrait photos. By the way, here on the cape can get shots no worse than on the Mai Kao Beach in Phuket.
15. As for the beach near the airport, it is rocky, wild, not very well maintained, and the locals like to come here to relax with doggies.
16. Such a beautiful view opens onto the capital of the island from the cape, and if you read the post about Palm de Mallorca, then on the horizon you could recognize the gigantic Palm Cathedral.
