Hiking in Menorca

The island of Menorca in its entirety is declared a biosphere reserve, so hiking around the island is a pure pleasure for nature lovers and avid hikers. The choice of route had been decided for us by mother Nature: Menorca is circled by the picturesque road called El CamГ­ de Cavalls that treks along the Mediterranean coast.

From the end of the Middle Ages and up until the civil war of 1936 El CamГ­ de Cavalls had been used for military purposes: mounted police patrolled Menorca and controlled the security of the coast from this road.

Today, the El CamГ­ de Cavalls route is a part of the Gran Recorrido hiking network - this fact is affirmed by the recognizable road signs marked GR223 that one can see on the road. The total length of the route is 185 kilometres.
