In the first part runs along a dirt track in clear descent, through terraced olive groves. We will pass the lands of Bàlitx d'Amunt, Bàlitx d'Enmig and Bàlitx d'Avall, this latter dedicated to agritourism too. From here the path begins to climb to reach the Coll de Biniamar, the highest point of the route. The descent from the hill will soon lead us by the sea. Here it becomes a genuine look that runs snaking and clinging to the cliff.Halfway a fork points to descent path to a factory which supplied electricity to Sóller until 1962. Back to the main road, we will continue to Cala Tuent.

 

From Cala Tuent is possible to return by boat to the Port de Sóller. The company Barcos Azules offers an special Taxi Boat making the journey between the Port de Sóller and Cala Tuent.
