Menorca Island Tour

Majorca´s congenial little sister

Map Menorca roundtrip

Route

Tour profile/ level 2:

The legs are of average difficulty, a mix of short ascents and wonderful decents; You cycle on side roads, field paths and some hiking paths, always with as little traffic as possible.

Day 1: Mahón

The capital Mahón welcomes you with all its beauty: the old city with its English influences as well as the impressive natural harbour.

Day 2: Roundtrip Mahón, approx. 30 km

After the welcome meeting, you cycle to the south of the island, to the village of Sant Luis, founded by the French, characterised by its windmill. Whitewashed walls line the path to the "white village" of Binibequer Vell with its intricate houses and narrow alleys. You cycle along the coast on your way back past Punta Prima Beach and the offshore lighthouse.

Day 3: Mahón – Es Mercadal, approx. 60 km

Today, we pack our bags. You cycle to Es Grau and to the Albufera Lagoon with its numerous bird species, among them the fish eagle. The lagoon is the centre of Menorca’s Biosphere Reserve. At the lighthouse of Faváritx, you are greeted by a moon landscape of grey-black slate. The route takes you to the famous Es Mercadal, which holds many culinary highlights.

Day 4: Beaches of the North, approx. 40 km

From Es Mercadal, across the farmland lined with stonewashed walls, you discover the beaches of the North, which are lined up like pearls on a single string: Pregonda, Binimel-là and Cavalleria with the former Roman harbour Sanitja, and, last but not least, the fishing village of Fornells where every now and then the Spanish King used to have dinner. The route then takes you back to Es Mercadal.

Day 5: Es Mercadal – Ciutadella, approx. 40 km

The day begins with packing, before you get to the village of Es Gran Migjorn with its white houses. After Ferreries, we arrive at the beach Cala Galdana and continue west on historical paths, past prehistoric sites with their taulas and talayots. Shaped by aristocracy and clergy, the former capital Ciutadella awaits you at today´s final destination.

Day 6: Roundtrip Ciutadella, approx. 10 - 30 km

After breakfast, our guide will pick you up for a walk around town. In the afternoon, to conclude your cycle tour, a few options are at your disposal: visit the bays of Algaiarens, Cala Morell with its prehistoric burial caves, or the lighthouse of Punta Nati, embedded in an impressively rugged cliff landscape.

Day 7: Beaches of the South, approx. 30 km

From Ciutadella today you discover the beaches of the South – Macarella, Turqueta or Son Saura. On your way back you cycle between stone walls past farmsteads, the so-called Llocs – with their own cheese production.

Day 8: Ciutadella

Individual departure or extended stay.

    Our Menorca experience

    We loved Menorca and believe we went at a good time of the year, at the beginning of spring, in May, If we traveled in high season during summer when it is much hotter, the cycling would have been more difficult and we would have had to deal with more ...
