We have just done the Camí de Cavalls 360º by mountain bike and due to fatigue, we cut the third stage of mountain bike to get to Ciutadella. And they stopped knowing the section of the Camí de Cavalls that corresponds to stages 9 and 10 of walking. So we get ready to do them on foot now.
We start the route in Cala Morell to do stage 9 of the Camí de Cavalls. It is very easy to follow because it is perfectly marked. There are many wooden landmarks that have the Camí de Cavalls sign. The second line tells us the stage of the 20 that is to be done on foot and finally the third line indicates the number of the milestone. They are marked sequentially so you can’t get lost even if you don’t have GPS.
First we visit the Necropolis of Cala Morell. A set of burial caves carved into the rock and we continue along Cala Morell and the coast to Punta Nati. Easily visible by its 42 m high lighthouse and which was raised to signal this place to sailors after the wreck of General Chanzy, a steamer in 1910. Point now signposted by a cross. The Cross of General Chanzy which is a few meters before Punta Nati.
After this point, I enter stage 10 of the Camí de Cavalls. Follow this lunar landscape, quite flat and bare. Full of limestone rocks eroded by inclement weather. While we arrive at Punta de Sa Falconera or take advantage of the place to make a sandwich.
We follow the path and almost at the end we find a photogenic gift. The Pont d’en Gil, just after the treatment plant facilities. It is a hole made by the sea on the cliffs, below which small and medium-sized boats can pass.
Then we pass the urbanization of Cales Piques, its last part quite ugly, by the way, and we leave by Cala en Blanes. We continue along the already more urban coast, passing by Sa Farola, Cala des Frares and Cala en Busquets until we reach the Port of Ciutadella. Our end of stage.
