Height Gain: 65 Metres
Difficulty: Easy, Family Friendly **
Advice: Sunscreen, water, suitable footwear (runners not flip-flops)

Introduction:
This is a most pleasant family stroll which gives the visitor a view of the
wonderful fjord-like bay of Cala Llonga, with ever changing colours of the sea.
On our way to the point we can see the hill on the opposite side which is a more strenuous walk but
brings the explorer to an ancient Punic/ Roman ruin at the summit,
with tremendous views of Formentera and Salinas.

When we reach the furthermost point (Punta Roja) we have a view to the south of Formentera,
our neighbouring island, which can be reached as a day trip from Cala Llonga (see timetable on Jetty).
As we look North West we can see the bay of Santa Eulalia, a most pleasant family orientated town and
we can also see the coast as it moves to Cala Pada and the Island to Tagomago in the distance.

Making out return journey we simply reverse the instructions on the walk and
we can see the breath-taking views of Cala Llonga with the rounded hills in the background –
if you are doing this walk in the late evening you may be treated to the glowing orange and turquoise sunset in the distance.
Pop in to one of the many bars and restaurants that our village offers, for a well-earned refreshment on your return.
We hope you enjoy this walk and maybe stretch your legs on one of the others…
