This walk is spectacular and very adventurous because we will go down to sea level half abseiling and the climb up is tough and steep. Ses Balandres means the ferns, because there are a few different types in the shady moist crevice that we descend through. We will also see many other plants not observed much in Ibiza due to the unique conditions here.
Together with our guides Simon and Tim we start at the Church at Santa Agnes. We pass the island’s oldest well built by the Moors. The views from the top of the cliffs is wholly spectacular with the crescent shaped Margalides islands 150 metres below and out to sea.
Then the descent starts within a deep gorge and we go all the way down to sea level, the last section by half abseiling. The rockface has steps carved into it which makes it much better than it sounds. At the bottom there are a few fisherman’s huts and boat launching ramps. The rock strata is particularly interesting as it is very convoluted due to powerful upheavals many thousands of years ago. The climb up will be tough, but there are many places to rest on the twisting path.
Feel free to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the break along the way.
It’s not a long walk but very technical and you shouldn’t be afraid of heights. With a medium fitness level the walk takes about 3 hours.
How do the walks work?
You don’t have to make a reservation for our Community Walks. You just can show up at the meeting point.

The walks are by donation of €10 per person, the BIG WALKS are by donation of €15 per person, It’s important for us that the walks are accessible to all and if you are on a very tight budget then we also accept exchanges like some nice chocolate, something home made or a hug!
If you have a lovely well trained dog which is also socialized please bring them along. They will need to be on a lead on the roads & some of the beaches.
We have liability insurance, but do not have medical insurance – this is your responsibility.
All our guides are trained and have the ability to lead groups, they all carry a first aid kit and use walkie talkies to keep in contact with a back marker to make sure the group stays together and are safe. We also have strict departure and return procedure to ensure everyone is accounted for.
The trip and your safety is your responsibility and you must ensure you are covered for this prior to coming on the walk.
