It is possible to pass from the lighthouse on la Mola to the lighthouse at Cap Barbaria walking along the southern coast of the island, sometimes on the beach and sometimes on the edge of the cliffs. The cliffs are cut by a number of canyons (danish: ådal, Spanish: Torrent) which you have to either cross or go around. This note describes the canyons on the eastern coast of Cap Barbaria. It is build upon my tracks from many tours on foot and bike. It is a history, not intended to be a route description, even it contains a lot of details relevant for exploring.
The major canyons are (from Cap Barbaria Lighthouse) the following:
The following maps shows tracks which have brought me along the coast and in contact with the canyons. The tracks exhibit possibilities to access the coast.
The tracks are integrated on a map (Google Maps), where they can be compared to the path from lighthouse to lighthouse, which has been published on Facebook by a user named Fotos de Formentera. This user have published a lot of very fine photos fro all over Formentera.
Also integrated on this map is a path leading to the cave Gran Cova de Sant Valero.
The path is found on a homepage describing the cave.

The track up on the southern side of Torrent Fondo.
Published by the Facebook user Fotos of Formentera as an answer to a question on FB where I mentioned that I had lost the track, which I has found and used in 2019. (I published it as a route in Outdooractive)
The following Map (Google) shows some tracks around Torrent Fondo. It also contains a constructed route, made to circumvent the Torrent (Red). The white track is the tour Faro a Faro. You can find out how to pass the Torrent Fondo by combining the different tracks.
If you want to circumvent both the Torrent Fondo and the Torrent de Ses Estanques, the simplest will be to use the white track until it meets the yellow track (Walk with Frida), then follow the yellow track until the point where it is the closest to the red track (the constructed route). The shortcut is not a visible path, but the orange route, another explorative path, shows where it can be found. Where the red track (almost) meets the green track (a track made for exploring the south side path over Fondo Torrent), you take the green track until you are back on the white track. Then continue along the white track.
