Walking in Menorca

16 day and 2 multi-day routes

By Paddy Dillon

This guidebook explores Menorca through 16 mostly inland one-day walks plus a 4-day coast to coast and the 10-day GR223 trek of 185km round the whole coastline. The trek uses historic bridleway trails to offer plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding. Easy walking generally but routes can be combined.

Seasons

Seasons

Summer can be very hot, while mid-winter can be wet and muddy underfoot. Spring and early summer are excellent, with the island at its greenest and most colourful, but autumn is often very good too.
Centres

Centres

Maó (or Port Mahon) and Ciutadella have the best bus services. Most coastal resorts only open fully in summer, but Fornells is open all year.
Difficulty

Difficulty

Gradients are often gentle, but occasionally steep for short periods. Conditions underfoot are often easy, but can be rough and stony in places, making walking and cycling difficult. However, with enough time available, all the routes can be completed easily enough by ordinary walkers.
Must See

Must See

Attractive coastline with dramatic cliffs and secluded beaches which vary according to the changing geology. Amazing archaeology dominated by huge stone 'taulas' and 'talaiots'. The historic bridleway - Camí de Cavalls - has been restored as a long-distance, round the island walking, cycling and horse-riding route.
