We leave from the City of Sant Antoni until the end of the port, leaving it on the left. We ride along the coast and see fantastic views of the entrance to the bay of Sant Antoni and the islet of Sa Conillera. We passed the Café del Mar, Mambo, etc. We followed the walk to the end and reach the beach of Caló des Moro, cross it and follow the parelelo way to the coast, with the sea on our left. We continue along the road along the coast to Sa Cova de Ses Llagostes, where we will pass back and retake the road along the sea. We will go for a while in the woods and back out to the coast in front of Cala Gració.
Cross the beach, we climb stairs and follow the path next to the sea to Cala Gracioneta, which also cross to continue along our path. We arrive at a fishermen's houses, where it seems that the road ends ... But no. We climb some stairs carved into the rock and continue the path next to the coast, with the sea on our left. After rounding the last houses of fishermen, we follow the path until we face another path, leaving the cliff to the left, leading to a road. We take it and we passed the Hostal La Torre. Once we have passed, we will enter an alley to the left, until you reach the cliff path that we will be right. The terrace of the hostel is on the left, and we face the Cap Nono, Sa Foradada and Cala Salada.
Follow the path beside the cliff, we arrived at Punta Galera and found a sign on a wall that says "Camí Cala Galera" cross the wall by an entrance towards the end of Punta Galera and then find some stairs down to a fishermen's cottages. We take, we passed houses to Punta Galera, crossed it and went up another flight of stairs to retake, on the left, the path turns the cliff to what is known as Creek Yoga. We went through the entrance to Cala Yoga, and follow the road up stuck to a wall of a housing estate. In the first turn, we take the road on the left and continue climbing more smoothly.
We walked down the paved road until the next junction, we take the left, where it starts to go down. We will pass next to a tennis court. We continue to find the next turnoff to the right and we'll get into an alley where stairs lead us to our next destination: Cala Salada. To return, we climbed back up the stairs to reach a crossroads we take the left, and follow the paved road that climbs slowly to take the next junction, also left. At the next junction, turn right and the road begins to descend gently. We must follow the main road, which is asphalted and down until you reach a roundabout. We continue down until you find a stone wall on the left.
We continue to return to a wide dirt road, which we follow to the left and that will lead us to the road between Sant Antoni with Santa Agnès. When we get to a crossroads that is up Can Coix Velodrome, turn right and follow the road signs Sant Antoni and Ibiza. When we get to the roundabout, we move right and left the road that would take us to Cap Negre and Aquarium. So we continue along the main road towards Sant Antoni. We enter the village on the road from Cala Gració. Quartó pass in front of the Instituto de Portmany, we will reach another roundabout and continue along the right side to take the first street to Calo des Moro. A roundabout, leave right Cala Gració street and take the next, to Calo des Moro. We went down to the coast down the street Lopez de Bosc, with beautiful views of Sa Conillera and S'Illa des Bosc.
