The old road of Sa Farola
The residents of Ciutadella have the luxury of having the old road that links Cala in Blanes with Ciutadella: the promenade of Sa Farola. This road was massively discontinued when the new one was built, and for a while it was in very bad condition.
In 2008 the road refurbishment work was completed. The result was the magnificent promenade of Sa Farola,a road with a two-way bike lane,and a lane for cars. The promenade allows you to reach Cala en Blanes along the coast.
The tour starts at the Camí de Sa Farola,a path of about 500 meters that goes from the old terminal of the old port of Ciutadella to the beginning of the promenade of Sa Farola.
The road is quite wide but has 2 traffic lanes, so be careful. Once you reach the start of the bike path, it is impossible to get lost. The walk is full of people walking, jogging and cycling at almost any time of the day. If you continue along the promenade you will reach the fork that leads to Cala en Blanes. Continue straight on and you will reach the roundabout of ronda nord, where you have to turn left and follow the signs towards Cala en Brut.
