Description

The island of Menorca is a jewel in the Mediterranean crown, inhabited by proud people who strongly safeguard its beautiful landscape. The list of things to see in Menorca cannot but include the island’s rich natural heritage and of course its amazing beaches. Tu fully become familiar with the soul of Menorca, you must also visit its hinterland, characterised by varied landscape and panoramic views declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993. Choosing to do it on the back of a local horse can not but make it an unforgettable experience.



What we will see
  • Cala Algaiarens among rides in the woods and on the beach
  • Camí de Cavalls trail
  • Cala Mitjana, an unspoilt bay of a breath-taking beauty


What we will do
  • We leave the port to reach the other side of the island crossing its marvellous hinterland. As people are used to seeing its sea, coast and main cities, they often find it difficult to imagine just how lush, verdant and fertile Menorca actually is.
  • Once at the Son Àngel stables, our guide shows us how easy it is to ride in the woods and on an unspoilt beach near Cala Algaiarens.
  • Our itinerary unwinds along rural trail and Camí de Cavalls surrounding the entire island and taking its name from the local soldiers who used to patrol Menorca on horseback. It is now one of the most popular trails with trekking aficionados as it is used to reach the most remote beaches but also to explore the island on horseback.
  • Camí de Cavalls is without doubt the best way to venture into Menorca’s wild natural scenery and proceed through verdant and scented pine woods as far as an unspoilt paradise on the island’s southern coast: Cala Mitjana.
  • Menorca, the northernmost island in the Balearics, has its own pace and a magical atmosphere that can best be experienced on the back of a local Menorquín horse. This species is originally from the island and is characterised by its nobility, endurance, loyalty and gentle movements.
  • In this way, we can admire the natural beauty of this area from a privileged viewpoint offering breathtaking views of the coast, the turquoise sea and white sandy beaches.
  • An unforgettable experience that will remain etched in our memories long after we return to the stables and from there to the port.
