The start of the tour is right at Salinas del Carmen the only salines of the island that are still operating.
Bike south east and parallel to the coast line on gravel roads towards the port called Puerto de la Torre where the equally named gorge ends. You will find a lime kiln here close by the beach and many Agaves that were traditionally planted all over the island. Moreover, there are numerous sorts of Canary palms to be seen here, right within the bird reserve area. Fans of birds will enjoy this place very much as rare species can be found here like the Egyptian vulture, the only bird of prey of the Canary islands. As of today the Egyptian vulture is only home in punctual places of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
Cross the so called Barranco de la Torre canyon to reach wild area Llanos de Paso Alto after a short elevation. Next bike down the road towards a little bay called Caleta de la Ballena which you will pass to your left to reach the Majada de las Cabras beach where yet another lime kiln can be found. Moving on, go back up always staying by the coast line and you will get to the end of your trip after about one kilometer at Pozo Negro, or “black pit” in English. This part of the coast was transformed into a natural port in the 15th century and served well as a place for the import and export of all kinds of goods.
