Stage 1: Coll des Racó - Cala Estreta
Along this stretch of the Ruta Artà - Lluc GR 222 you walk over land charred by recurringforest fires, but still full of life as nature refuses to give in and instead resprouts with great force between stones and crags. This is a landscape of fan palms, strawberry trees and gorse putting down roots and sheltering surviving snails and tortoises, and birds they come back quickly. Behind all this await sandy beaches, calm in winter and busier during thesummer months. The waters here can be treacherous but are alwaysclear with that turquoise colour that invites you to take a dip and then rest.
