The Menorca region
Nearby Cuitadella is a delightful, authentic Menorcan town which caters for every taste in both shopping and eating. From the main town you can wander through cobbled streets past the many historical houses and small castles, down to the harbour where you can enjoy the ambience of the local nautical scene and sample the Menorcan cuisine, at your leisure.
The local beaches or playas are idyllic – quiet, clean and safe. The nearest beaches to the villa are Cala Santandria and Cala Blanca (an easy bicycle-ride); further away Son Saura, Cala Macarella, Cala Galdana and Cala Mitjana are highly recommended and for sailing enthusiasts, Fornells on the North side of the island is a firm favourite. For the more energetic guests there are a range of outdoor sports to choose from - sailing, bicycle hire, horse riding and diving are available.
Ciutadella de Menorca
Menorca inhabitants usually use the affectionate name "sa Roqueta" (the little Rock) to refer to Menorca. If you see it on a map it can simply look like a little island among the Mediterranean, but this perception changes when you look at it closer: its little territory hides an infinite number of surprises, contrasts and spots.
Menorca's area covers about 700 km2 and the remote places of the island only cover 50 km from east to west and a little more than 20 from north to south. The tallest hill, called El Toro, is only at 358 meters above sea level.
However, in this little island we can find examples of almost every existing ecosystem in the Mediterranean, an admirable diversity of flora and fauna and a wide variety of endangered species or species with substantial ecological value.
Additionally, the length of the coastline of the island is not to be sniffed at: more than 200 kilometres of coast mainly virgin, moulded along the centuries and millennia by the artistic movements of the sea and the wind.
The unique historical, artistic and cultural wealth, the human signs of the environmental diversity of the island, completes the island as a whole, which has earned the recognition of Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
Camí de Cavalls (GR 223) is an ancient path of 185 km long that surrounds Menorca following its coast. Decidedly, it is the best way to discover the natural wealth and heritage of an island that gathers almost every existing ecosystem in the Mediterranean
Cami de Cavalls-A path that is Menorca
Camí de Cavalls is an ancient path that surrounds Menorca, following accurately, for a lot of kilometres, the confines of the island. For this reason, Camí de Cavalls is not only a path that surrounds the island, but the island itself. It reflects its finitude and boundaries. In this regard, Camí de Cavalls is Menorca.
Camí de Cavalls actually is the sum and union of a variety of tracks and paths. Its route has been slightly modified along the centuries; most of it has been kept untouched. The present route is 185 km long.
Camí de Cavalls crosses gullies, rocky zones, valleys, torrents, wetland and farming areas; it units ancient watchtowers, lighthouses and trenches, and it leads to a great deal of coves and spots of the island.
Menorca was declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO on 1993 as recognition of its environmental, social, economic and cultural qualities.
