The Beach Route
The coastal landscape and lovely beaches of Santa Eulària des Riu are showcased in this 30-kilometre cycling route. Its circular path also takes you to the charming village of Sant Carles and, if the day coincides, to the myriad delights of the Las Dalias Hippy Market.
The town hall square in Santa Eulària des Riu marks the starting and finishing point of this stunning route, which hugs the coast of our municipality. Its ability level is considered medium-low for the regular cycler, but medium-high for the sporadic rider. Its 2.5-hour course leads past eleven of our beaches, including the most spectacular ones in our municipality. So, depending on the time of year, it might be a good idea to tuck a swimsuit into your backpack.
The first part of the route leads northward, past the beaches of Santa Eulària, Cala Pada, Cala Martina, Es Canar, Cala Nova, Cala Llenya, Cala Mestella, Cala de Boix, Pou des Lleó, Es Figueral and Aigües Blanques. At this point, the route curves south to reach the village of Sant Carles de Peralta, where it is worth taking a slight detour in order to visit the Trull de can’Andreu Museum and the Font de Peralta, one of our municipality’s ancient springs. If you happen to be riding on a Saturday, you could even stop off at Las Dalias Hippy Market before continuing back to Santa Eulària des Riu.
