We all do it, spend two weeks just laying around the pool or chasing the kids up and down the beach. Here at Menorca the Guide we have always tried to get you off the sun bed and out into the real Menorca. Well now we've found another way to tempt you away from the pool, a 'good for the heart' brisk walk, or a lazy stroll.
In this section we hope to bring you a series of relatively easy walks from around the island. We hope you will try one or two out and find the "Menorca" that most visitors miss.
Menorca is fantastic for summer holidays, but in the low season, March - April - May and October - November it's a great place to dust off your hiking boots.
Menorca de Cavalls
This year sees the much-awaited opening of the 'Cami de Cavalls' (pathway of the horses). This ancient country and coastal path/bridle way winds its way around the entire coastline of Menorca. Originally it was used as a way of warning the population of impending invasion. Now after being unused for over four centuries, it has been re-opened. Full maps can be found in the Cami de Cavalls section of our maps.
These walks are intended as a relaxing way to discover the Menorca most holiday makers miss. So give yourself plenty of time to complete the walk. Please be aware that in July and August it will be far too hot to attempt some of these walks. Also remember that the grass and scrub will be very dry and easily ignited, so be careful.What to take with you :-
Comfortable walking shoes or boots and light clothing.
Don't forget the sun Cream and hat.
A small easy to carry rucksack or similar for carrying water bottle, picnic, camera, etc.
A light waterproof jacket is always handy as in the low season you may get the odd shower.
If the walk takes you down to the sea/beach a swimming costume and towel.
Please take all your rubbish home with you and if you smoke take a personal ash tray.
