9. Cala Morell – Punta Nati

Nicknamed the windy island, much of Minorcas landscape is arid. That is case here, as the strong influence of the fierce north wind has carved the terrain. Gentle slopes characterize the land, apart from at Cala Morell where the deep gorge marks a strong contrast against the smooth terrain. Along the rocky path there is low vegetation but no bushes, these are replaced by herbaceous plants.

Punta Nati has a historical lighthouse that was built during last century in order to reduce the vast number of shipwrecks caused when strong storms affected this part of the coast.

There are many typical Minorcan rural buildings along the route, such as ses barraques or es ponts de bens or the bestiar where cattle and other livestock take form fierce weather conditions.
