Our hike today begins towards the S’Albufera des Grau Natural Park, which forms the core of Menorca’s protected Unesco Biosphere Reserve. It is a natural space, located in the east of the island of Menorca, comprising S’Albufera des Grau, the island of Colom and Cape Favàritx. We will find a great diversity of environments such as wetlands, agricultural and livestock land, forests, cliffs, beaches, islets in marine areas. On the way, we will see several remains of the Spanish Civil War, such as trenches and bunkers. We will also pass two English coastal defense towers - the Sa Mesquida Tower at the beginning of the path and the Rambla Tower, which separates Sa Torreta Cove from Cala des Tamarrels.
The route ascends to the north crossing bays, headlands and the magnificent beaches of Tortuga and Cala Presili, until reaching the end of this varied itinerary in Cabo de Favaritx. The lighthouse here, built in 1922, is one of the most famous landmarks of Menorca. This is where our mini-bus will meet us and take us back to the resort.
The rest of the day and evening is at leisure.
