Route Binibona

Route Monnàber Nou – Coma Llarga - Binibona

Binibona

INFORMATION

This beautiful route through a rarely visited part of the Serra Tramuntana is quit an experience. The Mediterranean forest becomes greener and dense as we slowly ascent by the down the creek bed of the torrent Carrós. The mountain pass `Como Llarga` literally is a peak of the hike, from here we descent to the valley of the remote village of Binibona which counts less than 30 inhabitants. An easy-going gravel road takes you through ancient olive and carob groves back to the Monnàber estate. For people with an adventurous attitude and good physical shape can opt to climb the impressive crest of Sa Cappella Blava from waypoint number M 041.
