Cala Ametller

Route POI
Index card


We come down the stone steps of this small, cosy cove of stones and coarse sand while the tide is out. We are still in the area classed as an Area of Natural Interest.

The stone pines grow as far forward as the sun allows. On the steps, where the path crosses the stream that runs down towards the cove, we find a few holm oaks accompanied by honeysuckle, smilax aspera, strawberry tree and Mediterranean buckthorn. We would also like to point out the presence of strawberry myrtle (Myrtus comunis) and the scarce rock rose.


A few metres after crossing the stream, just past a large clump of club-rush close to the path, you'll see a cluster of cork oaks on your left, a sign of the original forests of the area.
