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. Unfortunately, due to infra structure workings, we have to divert briefly inland before taking a lane back down to the famous Restaurant Sa Punta where we join the promenade that leads us back to the Hotel Simbad.

In Feb 2022 we had to rewrite the start and end of this fascinating hike. However it now appears that the building work at the end has finished and it is once more possible and preferable to continue along the coast from way mark 15 to join the promenade taking you back to the Hotel Simbad.

My thanks to Gerard Sweeney for checking this walk in May 2020. There is one minor alteration to the description at way mark 7 and the walk remains an absolute beauty and full of interest. Jim Arymar

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
