Walk from Punta Prima to Barranc de Rafalet

From the beach at Punta Prime walk east towards the coastal path. In this part of the island the coastal path is virtually all at sea level. The first feature which will come into view is Alcalfar Tower.an old Martello type tower on the headland close to Cala Alcalfar.

From the headland you can see S'Algar to the north and back along the coastto the Isle de L'Aire at Punta Prima.

  • Before you reach the tower you will pass salt works which were started in the middle of the last century and never completed. As you approach Alcalfar Tower,which is virtually the mid point of the walk , you will see the small beach of Calo Roig.

    As one turns inland to follow the Alcalfar ravine the landscape changes from the arid the green of the ravine. Turning across the ravine and heading to the Cove and the see you enter Alcalfar with its holiday complex. Here you must cross the complex and head for the s'Algar road, on the north west corner of Alcalfar.

    Head for the s'Algar urbanisation.There are two roads to s'Algar. Take the one by the camping area. It is a dirt road, by a small pine wood, but it is suitable for vehicles. When you reach the point where houses line both sides of the track you will see a chain across the road to prevent vehicles for going further along the track. Past the chain the track enters an oak grove which provides welcome shade in the summer.

    When you reach the dried up river bed in the bottom of the Barranc turn to the right and follow the river bed down to Cala des Rafalet. The whole trip takes some 2 to 3 hours plus stops.
