Walking tracks and promenades

There are some 100 km of marked sand and walking tracks for nature lovers and those wishing to explore the inland of the island.

Motifs for taking a tour can be different: a restful vacation, exploration of cultural and historical landmarks scattered around the island or pure joy of pristine nature.

Likewise, exploring the rich world of plants can be one of the motifs: an original botanical garden full of indigenous plants and luxuriant vegetation flowers on a rather small geographical area. So, go and visit this garden for its green colour in the Mediterranean sun, for evergreen cypresses, holm oaks, laurel, a hundred-year old olive groves, lavender and rosemary in bloom…
