COAST & COUNTRYSIDE OF MINORCA

Discover a Baleric biosphere; nature, archaeology and comfortable island life

Immerse yourself in island life on Minorca, best explored on foot. A wealth of walks and opportunities for relaxation await you on this holiday. Walk along rugged, rocky coves and red sandstone beaches of the wild north and south coasts. Soak up the sun whilst exploring prehistoric standing stones or discover rural life as you meander through quiet country lanes and across farm tracks. Monte Toro at just 358m, the island’s highest point, offers some stunning views. At the end of the day see the sun set with a glass or two of wine.

Minorca is the most easterly and least developed of the Balearic Islands. It retains much of its rural tranquility and charm due to the strict control of tourist development on the island. For decades it has been an extremely popular destination for our groups with a highly rated hotel, walks full of charm, flora, wildlife, archaeological and geological interest and some sunny Mediterranean towns to explore.

The island has a beautiful climate, rolling fertile and wooded countryside, deserted beaches and a rich and diverse history including prehistoric remains. We stay in Mahon, a delightful city, rich in history and culture but still fairly modest considering its status as the island capital. Fought over by the British, French and Spanish for three centuries, it bears an interesting mix of modern and ancient. The city’s notable Georgian style architecture still remains from the influence of British rule, a style not found anywhere else in Spain. We’ll take time to explore the historical sites of the city and the surrounding area during our week and are sure to find time to explore its old-fashioned shops. Mahon’s Old City and natural harbour, the largest in the Mediterranean, are a delight and the old city of Ciutadella is also within easy reach.

30 March and 6 April departures are particularly for those wishing to enjoy the abundant flora of the island.




WALKING GRADES


Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Many of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walk will involve about 3 hours or walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m.
