This hike explores the southern peninsula of the huge Bay of Pollenca in the far north of the island. We begin on the charming coastline and soon make our way inland to begin following the course of the Torrent de ses Fontanelles, which will eventually bring us to the ridge at Coll de ses Fontanelles. Now we will descend into the charming Coma de s'Egua Valley and follow the path of the torrent crossing and recrossing it. Next we begin a gradual climb through pinewoods to reach the Coll Baix and from here we begin our zigzag climb curving round Puig de Boc to reach the ridge and our final approach to the base of the Talaia. From the sign and big cairn it is only a short climb to reach the summit of Talaia Alcudia (446m). The views are amazing. There is a refuge and an old well there.

Back down to the cairn and now we follow a quite exciting descent, not for the vertiginous, which at first comes quite close to cliff edges. Soon however, we are on easier ways and reach the interesting Hermitage de la Victoria. They have accommodation here and there is a restaurant and a café too. When we leave it is down a steep and rocky path which again follows a streambed and soon we are back on the coast road just a few metres from where we started.
