Default El Litoral de Mallorca

Of all the books that I have on Mallorca, this one has to be my favourite. The book is a colour aerial photo guide of the entire coastline of the island, a bit like a hard copy version of Google Earth. The text (which is in Spanish) covers in great detail each section of the coast and gives much useful and interesting information on places for visiting and background history. There are also lots of detail for those of you who are lucky enough to have a boat and advice on where to swim and dive.
The format is slightly larger than A4, is softbacked and has 270 pages. The book also has some nice maps and a great little intro all about the island. The photos have info on roads, walking routes and places of interest superimposed on them. The book costs roughly 40Euros and the last time I saw it for sale was in El Corte Ingles, but it may be available in the newsagents in PP.

The book sounds fantastic Chris very helpful.
Any chance you could post the ISBN No for it? We may be able to buy it on line or order it at a good bookshop in the UK.
Thanks again and take care.

I googled for this book yesterday & found it on the Spanish Lonely Planet site - see www.lonelyplanet.es/fichalibro.aspx?IdPack=2&IdPildora=EXT413290 I don't think there is an English version. The author has his own website here carlos-garrido.com/ so brush up on that Spanish!
