Hiking is perhaps the perfect way to discover the beauty of the island of Menorca -- a World Biosphere Reserve. With an intensely interesting history carved into the landscape throughout the ages, Menorca offers virtually endless possibilities for trekking, and the characteristics of the landscape are so varied that every walker will find a route practically made to measure.
The north coast offers some of the most stunning hiking trails on the island. You'll take the route that connects Cala Pregonda with Cap de Cavalleria, heading first in the direction of Fornells and meeting the trailhead at the Caballería beaches.
Your first stop will be at Cala Mica, where a narrow beach offers the first chance to enjoy the crystalline waters of Menorca. From there, your walk continues to Binimel-là Beach. Here, fine and coarse sands are deposited together by the winter tramontana winds, but in summer the sea is very calm and the water clear and fresh.
Another 90 minutes of walking brings you to Cala Pregonda's coastal scenery of rocky outcroppings and picture postcard crescent of golden sand. There's time to relax here and enjoy a swim before you return to the ship in Mahon.
Please note: Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. Minimum age is 7 years. Local conditions may not be suitable or swimming in early Spring or Fall.
