We hope you are ready to come along with our guide Simon and explore the North coastline and find the stunning hidden bay of Es Portixol which can only be accessed by walking or boat so its a real gem of a place.
We reach the bay by taking the new fisherman’s path which hugs the cliffs and passes an interesting old settlement complete with an ancient steam room. If we are brave maybe we will take a swim at the bay before taking the old fisherman’s path which snakes its way through the forest giving wonderful views back down to the bay.
Afterwards lunch can be taken at Can Sulayetas restaurant.
DATE & TIME:
Sunday 19th May 2019 – 11.00h
The parking is close to the restaurant Can Sulayetas (do not park at Can Sulayetas as they get annoyed!). Drive past the restaurant on your right. Then bear left and continue on the tarmac road for 500 meters. When you come to a fork on the road with a blue stone and a Ruta 18/20 sign keep left and after a few meters you will see the parking where John waits for you.
Limited parking so please car share if possible.
