The path runs mainly through the traditional area of Punta Prima, a protrusion between the end of the long Llevant beach and the Tramuntana coast. There are two roads. The first connects the towns of Sant Ferran de ses Roques and Es Pujols, which coincide with the final stretch of route 20, while the second option is the only one that leads to the Punta Prima watchtower.

Start in Sant Ferran with a visit to the main square and the church. Set off in the direction of Es Pujols along a quiet inland road that winds between stone walls that mark out the plots and fields. If you take the road towards the coastal village of Es Pujols you’ll be able to enjoy its magnificent beach and its seafront promenade with numerous restaurants and, in the evening and at night, little stalls.

To resume your trip to the tower, retrace your steps to the road diversion. The Punta Prima watchtower is a fortress built between 1762 and 1763 that dominates the northern part of the island. End your excursion by walking to the end of Punta Prima over the strange, rocky ground with odd shapes and curious contours that will bring all manner of figures to mind. There are some marvellous views to be enjoyed from Punta Prima’s imposing cliffs; to the west, Ibiza, Espalmador and the islet of Espardell and to the east, the La Mola plateau and the Tramuntana Coast.
