The windig south
On our last journey, we will ride along the Camí de Cavalls direction to East. It starts gently but finishes covering the extremely rugged landscape formed by the ravines that characterise the central southern coastline. After crossing the town of Sant Tomàs the path turns inland before arriving at Son Bou. Shortly before that however, we leave the main track to visit the ravine of Sa Vall and its wetland, passing in front of the Talis farm, from where we will follow the oddly-shaped cliffs that lead us along the seashore and sand-dunes of this tranquil tourist area to Son Bou. At one end of the beach of Son Bou (the longest beach on the island, nearly 1.9 miles) we find a Christian basilica dating from 400 AD. Afterwards, we will start off again along the path bordering El Prat de Son Bou: an important wetland that exemplifies the rich biodiversity on Minorca. This is another ideal spot for bird watching. Soon after, we will cross the longest beach of Son bou direction Sant Tomàs and San Adeodato.
The day will finish with a particular lesson of “menorcan dressage” (duration: 1 hour) and includes, if you wish, to try the original and unic “bot” (jump)
