Es Vedrà


Es Vedrà still comes to my mind from time to time, so I decided to do another virtual plein air painting of the island, this time viewed from Cala d'Hort, a nearby beach. It's apparently a very popular beach in the summer, but the area is not super developed. There are a couple fisherman sheds on one side and an area for people to lounge and take in the view. Apparently a developer was planning to build a 420-room hotel and golf course in the area back in the 90s but the locals managed to put a stop to it. I can understand how silly it would be to add a golf course in that area, but it might be great to figure out a way to accommodate a certain amount of people while respecting the environment.
