The Northern Light

Gato’s second favorite hike after Atlantis..

This walk starts at the beach of Portinatx bay and circles north Towards the Lighthouse of Punta Moscarter, its the first electric and automated Lighthouse in the Balearic’s,  We will also find some magic salt crystals to collect along the way. The terrain of this hike has some of the most variations of landscapes and is a coastal walk during about 70% of the route.

Rating: Medium+

Route: Circular

Location: Portinatx bay (North Ibiza)

Duration: 3 to 4 hours

Distance: 9,8 km (6,1 miles)

funky notes: I have taken a retired ballerina in her 70’s with two recently broken feet and wearing Birkenstock’s, if she can do it, anyone can)

Recommended Start times:

Summer (May to Sept):

  • 08:00hrs Morning

What to expect during the Northern Light Walk?

Amazing coastal views, one great beach to have a swim at, expect to walk for 4 hours at a regular pace, but I always walk as slow as our slowest hiker in the group. This hike has some parts where terrain will be rocky and irregular, some parts are covered by deep Pine Tree forest and at 2 or 3 points of the hike you will expect to climb down or up a couple parts of the path, but its super easy, I will guide you through it.

 

What to bring?

During our hikes its always recommended you bring: the most important item is comfortable sport or trekking shoes, (no open toe shoes please, never), to drink: 1,5 liter of water per person, bring a little snack: a piece of fruit, a granola bar, or a sandwich; a small backpack or comfortable carry bag, bring a small towel, bathing suit (optional) snorkel mask or swim goggles, sun protection in the shape of hats or shawls to cover from the sun. A change of clothes (for some people) Common sense things: your personal essentials, any medications, anti-allergy dosages, your favorite outdoor gear,  etc.

Atlantis (Sa Pedrera d’Hort)

Gato was born in Atlantis about 4,200 years ago…  and that’s a while ago.. this makes Gato an expert regarding the area, he knows every single inch of sand, rock, shrubs and tree’s down the hillside, all the way into the sea, 5 meters deep.

It was finished in 1763 following a design by engineer Juan Ballester y Zafra. It has two floors and an upper platform, all joined by a stone spiral staircase embedded in the thick walls. The entrance is located on the first floor, and it was reached with a rope ladder although in the 20th century a new access was built.
