Hiking Trail Menorca Transfers Stage 1 Sa Mesquida/Es Grao to Favaritx/Addaia
After your pickup from Mahón Bus Station, we stop at Sa Mesquida's beach car park where our minibus will drop you off. Going down to the beach, the hike route begins towards the Natural Park of S’Albufera des Grau, the core of the Biosphere Reserve. It is a natural space, located in the east of the island of Menorca, which is formed by S’Albufera des Grau, the island of Colom and the Cape Favàritx. In it we find a great diversity of environments such as wetlands, agricultural and livestock land, forests, cliffs, beaches, islets in marine areas.
On the way you find several remains such as trenches, and bunkers as well as 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 of Cami de Cavalls ascends to the north crossing bays, headlands and the magnificent beaches of Tortuga and Cala Presili, until you reach the end of this varied itinerary in Cabo de Favaritx with its lighthouse built in 1922, one of the most famous postcards of Menorca, a well known place for the dark tone of the rocks and limited vegetation.
The hike route ends at the parking of the lighthouse from where our bus returns you to Mahon at 5:00pm. For walkers who prefer to hike another 10.5 km our bus will make a second stop in Addaia, pick up at 5.30pm
From Favàritx to Addaia, the road heads inland through the undulating landscape so typical of this part of the island and continues crossing an agrarian landscape formed by crop areas, pasture land and areas of Mediterranean scrubland. You return to the coast in Pou d'en Caldes, one of the points that contains the largest concentration of endemic plants on the island.
Then the hike route returns inland and crosses the wet areas of great naturalistic interest located within the boundaries of the S'Albufera des Grau park, such as Addaia and Mongofra salt lakes, one of the best spots for birdwatching. The route continues into wooded area of lloc d'Addaia finishing in the urbanization of Addaia where our bus will pick you up to return to Mahón.
