The best adventures and activities in Menorca

Minorca is known for its pristine beaches and it’s relaxing atmosphere, but it’s also a great place to discover adventure.

The rugged countryside and the clear coastal waters offer activities for all levels, for those of you interested in getting a little physical while you’re on holiday in Menorca.

Here are our top one’s

Hiking, Cycling or Horseback Riding the Cami de Cavalls

The Cami de Cavalls is an ancient bridle path that leads around the entire coast of the island. Hiking, cycling or horseback riding are a fantastic way to get a full spectrum of Menorca’s beauty. The path is full of varied landscapes, from sand dunes to Holm-oak forest groves.

If you’re just in the mood for a casual walk, some sections are perfect for an hour or two. You can also do a self-guided tour, finding easier paths for beginners or rougher and more difficult trails for expert hikers. Guided hiking tours are an option if you’re curious about more remote areas.

Mountain cyclists can use the ‘Cavalls de Ferro’ route, which is broken up in 4 stages. And if you’d like to try the traditional way of following the bridle path on horseback, you can find a guided riding tour that suits you, from 1 to 7 days.

Water Adventures in Menorca

Water excursions in Menorca are as diverse as the coastline. Popular activities include scuba diving or snorkeling, boat rides around the ports or even kitesurfing. The Menorcan coast has everything from exotic schools of fish, gorgeous reefs to seeing one of the many shipwrecks visible in the crystal waters.

Snorkeling and scuba diving in Menorca are great for all levels; beginners can get lessons with guided tours and diving pros can discover the caverns and tunnels hidden along the coves.

A unique aspect about Menorca is that you can’t reach all of it by car or foot, which is where taking a boat or sailing excursion comes in.

You can take a 1-day trip to relax on a remote beach or a lengthy trip to explore more.

Kitesurfing in Menorca is also an option for a water adventure.
