3. Favaritx – Port D’Addaia

This is one of the sections that best define the rich and varied environments that make up the island’s north coast. The itinerary starts at Cap de Favàritx, a space that is well known for its dark rocks and the scarcity of vegetation.

The course passes through typical Minorcan agricultural surroundings, formed of ploughed fields, fields for livestock to graze in and areas with Mediterranean bushes. As the path approaches the coast again, it reaches Pou d’en Caldes, a space with dense concentration of endemic plants.

Leaving this cove behind, the path turns island, where there are spectacular rock formations, such as Es Capell de Ferro, which are covered in foliage.

As the path continues, a new ecosystem emerges, the important stretch of water at Port d’Addaia, where both water vegetation, and salt marsh vegetation at Mongofra, is present. The final stretch of the route end with a 3.5 km paved path, connecting Addaia with Arenal d’en Castell.
