The wild and impressive north coastline
This ride will take us through one of the most unspoilt, beautiful and least known stretches of the northern coastline. The starting point is the beach of Binimel.là. The path through the dunes takes us to Cala Pregonda, where we will discover a unique landscape. Continuing along the coast, we will ride beside Minorca´s Marine Reserve, created in 1999, with an area of 5.199 marine hectares. Following the steep rocky coastline path we reach Ets Alocs, where we will halt to eat and rest. Moving on, we pass through Cala Pilar, with its red stained slopes, and following the path, we come to Arenal d’Alfurí another spot with a high concentration of important endemic plants and floral species. Next we traverse Es Pla de Mar and its fantastic beach of sea-rounded stones, and then turn inland to Sa Muntanya Mala before finally reaching Algaiarens beach. Here we move into a more arid Minorcan landscape: the trees practically disappear and the coastal vegetation adapts itself to the influence of the strong Tramuntana (north wind). This land is rich in plants such as Rosemary or the Minorcan Camomile.
