Beginning from the Hotel Simbad on Talamanca Beach, our way takes us initially northwards away from the coast, eventually to join the quiet tarmac lane that leads towards the Serra d'en Balansat. Just short of the working quarry we come across the amazing Cova des Regals (see additional information) that is guaranteed to occupy you for at least half an hour. From here we shall climb gently the southern slope of the Serra, before following a rocky path that will bring us down to join a delightful footpath that meanders its way to the picturesque little bay of s'Estanyol, with its charming varaderos or fishermen's huts; in the season a wonderful spot to take a break and enjoy a swim and the hospitality of the little bar-restaurant. From here our way takes us back towards Talamanca through cool pinewoods before we branch off to take a path down to the coast. Climbing up from a little cove, we find ourselves on a spectacular cliff coastal path with the most amazing views over to the old fortified part of Eivessa. This wonderful leg brings us back to the promenade circling Talamanca Bay and we simply follow it back to the Hotel Simbad.

Walk checked on 28 April 2019. I have made a couple of minor description alterations. At way mark 3 there are now huge containers parked and you need to go round the back of them to find the gap in the fence and the footpath. This remains a fascinating and varied hike and is highly recommended. Jim Arymar
