Located along the road from Maó to Fornells, Minorca's most important nature reserve should be high on the list of priorities for hikers, birders, and nature-lovers in general. It's not huge (just over five hectares/12 acres), but still, the best way to approach it is via three established trails. The two which are better for birdwatching start at the Rodriguez Femenias Reception Centre - which, by the way, provides a good amount of information about the entire reserve. The third starts in the town of Es Grau and winds through the forests along the beach. But all three end up at the Favaritx Lighthouse, where you'll be amazed by the black slate of the cliffs and landscape, giving it an almost lunar aspect.
