This route is characterized by the diversity of habitats, which you find as we move along the path , with large expanses of forests and shrub species.The route goes inland through cultivation , mostly barley and wheat, until you reach the beach of Algaiarens.

Continue west where you will pass through the area of Tramontana, the beach of Fontanilles, Punta de Curniola until you reach the urbanization of Cala Morell where on its cliffs you can see an important necropolis of the Talayotic era formed by fourteen caves artificially excavated in the rock.

The walkers who want to follow the route have the possibility of reaching the Punta Nati Lighthouse (adding 7 km to the path). This section of the Camí de Cavalls runs entirely through what is known as “dry Menorca”,an arid landscape where the predominant  north wind has created a desolate landscape.

Are found here endemic species such as rosemary, heather and the popular Camamil•la, camomile of Menorca.
