Description
This walk is perfect for discovering one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, the beach of San Ciprianu – a long stretch of fine sand and shallow water, which makes it ideal if you want to go there with children. Continue walking until you reach the end of the beach, where you will find a footbridge which will allow you to cross a small stream. This footbridge will take you to the path leading to the peak of Arasu, this path is well signposted and in excellent condition thanks to the efforts of the association Conservatoire du littoral.
The path climbs gradually: you should take a good supply of water. When you reach the Peak of Arasu, you will enjoy a breathtaking panorama.
To return to the starting point, you must descend until you reach a fork in the path: turn left until you reach the footbridge and take the path to your right. Then turn left until you reach a wooden fence. Take the path which leads towards some ponds and continue walking until you reach a large car park. From here you can return to the San Ciprianu car park alongside the shoreline or via a path which crosses the marsh. If you prefer peace and quiet then take the path along the marsh, which is less popular.
