Walking in Menorca


This guidebook to walking on the Balearic island of Menorca in the Mediterranean includes a wide variety of walking. The first part of the guide includes 16 day walks that lead inland, exploring Menorca's rich history of castles, military fortifications, picturesque houses, windmills and towns as well as protected nature reserves and the prehistoric marvels of huge stone taulas and talaiots.

The guide also includes two longer-distance treks. The first is a coast-to-coast route from Maó to Ciutadella lasting 4 days over the gentle hills and countryside. The other trek is the GR223 Camí de Cavalls, the 10-day, 185km walk around Menorca's coast. This trek leads you along dramatic coastline and hidden beaches, and was entirely restored in 2011 for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

From city walks through Maó, to trails through woodlands and along clifftops with the surf crashing below, Menorca has a great deal to offer any walker. The best time to walk in Menorca are spring and autumn, but especially spring if you have an interest in wild flowers, or want to see the island at its most colourful.

This guidebook is a perfect aid to explore Menorca, with practical information on transport and accommodation, to passages on the history and culture of the island. Menorca is more than just its beaches, this guidebook helps show you why.
