MOUNTAIN BIKE ROUTES

SA SERRA GROSSA

RUTA 5
MUNICIPALITY
SANT ANTONI DE PORTMANY
DESCRIPTION
On this route we make two of the most important ascents on Ibiza Island: the ascents of sa Capelleta d’en Serra and Serra de sa Murta. They go through pine and juniper woods where the Ibizan Genet can be spotted. The species is native to the island.

Our route departs from Sant Antoni, at sea level and continues through Benimussa Valley, climbing steadily up to sa Capelleta. We recommend doing the last stretch on foot. Sa Capelleta is a curious shrine built in 1919 by Vicent Serra to fulfil a promise he made as a soldier in Algiers. The shrine has a view over the ses Salines nature park.

After a visit to the shrine, the cross-country biking trail descends into the lovely valley of sa Serra Grossa, close by. When we come to sa Carroca, a densely populated area, we start to climb again until we reach Serra de sa Murta, 400m above sea level.

After these two important ascents, we will go through the Ibizan countryside and coast downhill to sea level to complete our circular route.
