Pont d’en Gil bridge | Menorca, Spain

Menorca Cliffs - Pont d’en Gil bridge in the evening, Spain.

When I saw this limestone formation on the Menorca island, I immediately thought that this arch had to have been formed by human hand – this shape could be perfectly used as a guarded gate to an ancient port. In reality, Pont d’en Gil, as it is called in the native language, is a rock formation made fully by the forces of nature.

This photo is from last year’s photo camp PhotoPills on Menorca. The organisers of the event were originally coming from this Balearic Island. This is why they knew all the interesting photo locations and curiosities of the Pont d’en Gil bridge.

Observing the sun hiding behind the horizon and the calming sea during this evening, I was tempted to go swimming with a boat, under this arch. I unfortunately, do not have a boat and I actually have not sailed for a while, but the view of this formation was simply tempting.

It was later that I discovered that many people had actually gone ahead with this boat/swimming ride. Now tell me – would you?

    Thank you for this picture. I am a Menorquin , from Ciutadella, living in the USA. In 2019 my daughter got married at exactly that spot at sunset and those weeding pictures couldn’t have been prettier.
