MTB: Ibiza a Sant Antoni

Description

 

This is a one-way route through the mountains between the two largest cities of the island: Eivissa and Sant Antoni.
We reach an elevation of 350 meters twice along the route. From there, we have wonderful panoramic vistas of the island and the thick pine and juniper woods that cover most of the island’s mountains.

 

The first ascent to Serra de Sa Murta gives us an idea of the mountainous, inland features of this route.

The second ascent takes us to Puig Gros, where we take a break and drink from the natural spring next to the path. When we get to the top, we come to the Capelleta d’en Serra, a pilgrim’s shrine built nearly 100 years ago by Vicent Serra to fulfil a promise. The shrine affords magnificent views over the Ses Salines Nature Park.

The last descent takes us to the Benimussa Valley, a delightful area dotted with farmhouses. Here we say goodbye to the mountains and welcome the sea air in the town of Sant Antoni.

The paths are slippery if it has rained recently.
– At the highest point of the second ascent we can leave our bikes and continue on foot to the Capelleta d’en Serra shrine.
– Always wear your helmet.

Que Es Es

Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.

We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
