SHARE ROUTE

On this route, you will leave the spectacular cliffs at Cap Blanc and pass through the lovely beaches in the south of Mallorca to get to the protected area of the lighthouse at Ses Salines, where you will finish the walk by enjoying some beautiful views of the island of Cabrera.

We will leave the lighthouse at Cap Blanc and travel towards the towns in the south of Mallorca. We will stroll through Cala Pi, where we will enjoy the cove and the surrounding environment.

Leaving Cala Pi, we will continue with our route through the south of Mallorca. It is the driest part of the island as there is not much rain during the year; for this reason, its vegetation is completely different to that of other parts of Mallorca. We will come to the seafaring centers of Sa Ràpita and s’Estanyol.

We will travel to the southern part of the island and go to Es Trenc, the most well-known beach in Mallorca due to its dune system. There we will be able to observe the different bunkers that were placed there years ago to protect the island. After we cover the beach at Es Trenc, we will come to the center of Colònia de Sant Jordi, where we will discover different coves (Carbó and Es Caragol) with golden sand and turquoise waters, before arriving at our final destination, the lighthouse at Ses Salines. It is a protected marine reserve and SPA (Special Protected Area for birds) with some beautiful views of the island of Cabrera.
