Starting at the AE244 junction on Colera’s seafront promenade, cross the walkaway and take the trail as it climbs uphill. An area called Els Canons features two guns from Spanish Navy ships that wrecked off Colera in the winter of 1793. The view from this point is spectacular.

Leave the path that leads to Platja del Carbassó and continue along the higher part of the mountain for about 500 metres. The path turns abruptly to the left, heading downhill to the sea and the Ratllada. The path then turns right along the sea, until it reaches Port Juan and the end of the route.
