From the right side of Cala Llonga, overlooking the sea and right next to the house of the Red Cross, we see a paved road up to the neighborhood of Can Porxet. It is a wide road that cars can only climb a flight until Cala Llonga hotel. At this point, the asphalt ends and turns into a dirt path. We continue along this main road, which gives us beautiful beach of Cala Llonga on one side and the other tall and slender rocks views.
When the road into the forest, we must be vigilant because, about 100 meters to reach the top of the path, a path to the right of the forest, marked by a stone fita opens. We took it, and the way we continually marked by stones on both sides. We continue to note that the road veers to the left, about 20 meters, meet the ancient ruins of what might seem a defense tower. However, according to experts, it is a cottage Phoenician settlement nearby.
And since these ruins there is a path back to be marked with stones left and right, and that leads directly to the ancient Phoenician settlement Cape des Llibrell, right on the top of Mount de ses Terrets, where we find a geodesic of 220 meters. There we can enjoy magnificent views we can see the island of Tagomago, the islets des Canar and Santa Eulalia, Formentera, Mont des Castellar and very close to where we are, the Sol d'en Serra.
Thus, from the Phoenician settlement we retrace our steps we are attentive to the left, as left blurred find two roads leading into the forest. Ignore the first and went up the second, after going around a fallen pine, marked path takes us better and which will continue until near the cliff. Near there we see the trig point of Mount des Castellar, 184 meters high and cherishes it, how could it be otherwise, views to remember. From there, there is a path down and where the slope is steep. We must be very careful and study where we put your feet well.
Following the forest path and keeping close to the cliff, we will reach an area that serves as parking for those who want to go down to the beach Sol d'en Serra. From this point we see a road that goes right to the left by the turnoff to the beach. We take the right, which brings us back to our starting point: the beach of Cala Llonga.
