From our parking spot near Cala Salada (NB: see Access Information), we begin by following a coastal track before descending to the northern part of the beautiful bay Cala Salada. After a little scrambling along the rocky coastline we soon join a dirt track that will lead us northwards and eventually bring us down to the Cueva des Fontanelles with its ancient cave paintings. Retracing our footsteps to find another track, we continue north to meet the rocky footpath that will lead us to the summit of Puig Nano at 258 metres. It is a stiff climb, but the views on the way up and at the top are breathtaking. To the north we can see Santa Agnes and the almond tree plain (see Walk 4173). A steep and rocky forest footpath brings us down the other side of the Puig, where we meet another footpath that takes us eastwards through beautiful forested hills. We finish by following, for two kilometres or so, the most delightful meandering footpath that more or less follows the course of a torrent (stream) all the way down to within 300m of where the car is parked.

Done as a group walk in February 2018. There are now changes to Cala Salada vehicle access in the summer months. The way down from the summit of Puig Nano is now a well established rocky footpath. Other than these there are no additional changes and the hike remains a beauty and highly recommended. Jim Arymar
