Punta Nati Cape is located further northwest of the island located in the town of Ciutadella, Menorca this area is characterized by rocky and barren landscape, impressive precisely because of its hardness. The alacraneras bland, small succulents are the only representatives of the plant world that survive in this desert-like landscape. Thus, finding a place for swimming in this area is difficult, because the coast is the most rugged and rocky. About the impressive cliffs, a few tens of meters high, stands the lighthouse at Punta Nati, also known as Lamp Nova, built by the French in 1913 after the fatal wreck on the cliffs of one of his ships, the "General Chanzy "covering the journey Marseille-Algiers that killed more than 200 people. The lighthouse, which was inhabited until the second half of the twentieth century, has a white tower, a dome and aluminum flashlight. Also has large housing units for the old lighthouse keeper and a courtyard surrounded by a stone wall. To the right of the lighthouse are the remains of an observatory and a battery built during the civil war.
