Here a part of an article from La Vanguardia, which talks about the work of the paparazzi in Ibiza:
They have also seen don Juan Carlos and Iñaki Urdangarin on a ship in the beach of Xarcu, where there was a "chiringuito" (stall) who cooked a paella for them (the rumor does not specify if it was a chicken paella or a shellfish paella), and that they went down to have a walk (because of the digestion, of course).

The monarch sailed on board of the 'Fortuna'' whereas the duke of Palm was in Sa Ràpita with his two small children

To little less than one couple of weeks in order that the Royal Family concludes their summer vacations in Majorca, the King and his son-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarín, purify their last days of rest. Don Juan Carlos divided yesterday in the morning on board of the yacht Fortune where he could enjoy a calm voyage for waters of the Mediterranean. Garment of an informal way and with a cap to be protected from the Sun, the monarch could be accompanied by his major daughter, the Infanta Elena, duchess of Lugo. The one who proved to be again very attentive with his small children was Iñaki Urdangarín. The duke of Palm moved up to Sa Ràpita's beach to share games with small 5-year-old Paul Nicolás, and 3-year-old Michael. With the same swimsuit, target with flowers of diverse colors, and vests to stripes, the children looked always for the caresses of his father who did not hesitate to satisfy the thirst of his small ones with water when the strong heat was too tight. After one morning of the most enterteining, the family Urdangarín - only there were absent the first-born one, Juan Valentín, the small Irene and the Infanta Cristina - was mounted in a monovolume and they divided, about half after two in the afternoon, with course more than probable to Marivent. A very summer day and that supposes one of the last prints of the Royal Family before joining to their obligations.
The Royal Family continues enjoying the navigation in Porto Pi
MADRID (EUROPA PRESS)
The Royal Family continues their vacations in Majorca, where one could have seen her these last two days in Porto Pi on board of the 'Fortuna''.
On Sunday, the cameras caught how the Queen dona Sofía was playing in the yacht with her grandson Froilán, major son of the infanta Elena and don Jaime de Marichalar. Already in land, the Queen, who was leading her own car, detained to speak with another person who also was mounted in a vehicle. Later, her daughter Elena, her son-in-law and her grandson appeared in another car taken by the duke of Lugo.
Yesterday, the infanta Elena returned to Porto Pi to pass another relaxing day in high seas. Little later there came the car of the King don Juan Carlos, who was useful to visit his craft, the 'Bribón'. Later, His Majesty was seen in the cover of the 'Fortuna'', already moving away from the port.
The calm has invaded the island on the last days. It does not happen anything, so no wonder that even the small cut that the King made in his finger last Sunday, while giving that a nautical trophy has become a matter of debate. No need to worry; the wound was one of those that can be covered with a small band and the blood did not arrive at the river, nor it was blue (a joke that the own Don Juan Carlos made someday, when somebody was interested in another similar mishap).
Nevertheless, last Sunday it happened something worthy of mention, since Carmen Cervera, the widow baroness of Thyssen, went to the ceremony of the trophies that is celebrated in memory of Don Juan de Borbón, with whom her husband and herself maintained a good friendship. The baroness greeted Don Juan Carlos with a deep reverence. The baroness was dressing a pretty white dress, in Greek style, complemented with a Chanel purse, a casual outfit with which one gets dressed to go attend the delivery of the trophies, because in Mallorca one can never know when a reverence can take place.
The baroness has spent almost three weeks in the island, more concretely at her boat anchored in the Club of Sea, which she only abandoned to follow the regattas of the Copa del Rey, a good excuse to go to the sea. On the rest of the days, she could be seen in the terrace of the club with her son Borja (who takes to the last name Thyssen, since the baron adopted him) and Blanca Cuesta, the fiancèe of the boy.
