Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain.

Most of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Whilst walking, gain a sense of the island’s nature, archaeology and island life.
  • Wander around Mahon Old City and Harbour and relax on the waterfront.
  • Experience coastal and country walking with great views.
  • Admire the panoramic views from Monte Toro, at 358m the island’s highest peak.
  • Discover the old streets of Menorca's second city, Ciutadella.

Menorca is the most easterly, greenest and least developed of the Balearic Islands. For decades it has been an extremely popular destination for our groups with a highly rated hotel, walks full of charm, flora, wildlife and archaeological interest. Fought over by the Moors, Spanish, French and British this strategic island has an intriguing history waiting to be explored.

A wealth of walks await you on this holiday. Monte Toro at just 358m, the island’s highest point, offers some stunning views, whilst many walks use the - Cami de Cavalls - the ‘horse’s way’ that follows the coast around the island - GR221. Walk around rugged coves of the wild north and along white beaches of the south. Soak up the sun whilst exploring ancient Talayotic villages or discover unrushed rural life as you meander through quiet country lanes and paths.

24 March and 31 March 2020, plus 23 March, 06 April and 04 May 2021 departures are particularly for those wishing to enjoy the abundant flora of the island.

During our time on Minorca we will have 5 days of walking. Here, to give a ‘flavour' as to the type of walking Menorca has to offer, below we describe some of the walks which a holiday could include.

  • Distance

    6.22 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    50m

Cap Favaritx to Es Grau along the Cami de Cavalls

This is a very pleasant walk which follows the relatively isolated east coast. From Cap de Favaritx lighthouse we go south along the well signposted Cami de Cavalls as far as the pretty fishing village of Es Grau. It is a mostly stony, undulating path along the way we will have breaks in isolated bays. Just before Es Grau there is the chance to walk along the duckboards through the wetlands of the Albufera national reserve area. This is part of the ENESCO biosphere where tortoises are often spotted.

  • Distance

    6.22 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    200m

Cala Tirant or Santa Teresa and Fornells

On our way to the north coast we drive to the summit of Mt Toro and its sanctuary at a height of 358m. The sanctuary is worth the visit - from the island's highest point the views covering much of the island (and on a clear day, its big sister Majorca) are impressive. We drive down to take a look at Es Mercadal, the main market town on the island for coffee. Dropped off by the coach in what appears to be the middle of nowhere, we walk along a track to the bay of Cala Tirant crossing the bay along the top of the beach. In the wetter areas we may see (or at least hear) the stripeless tree frogs. In the drier areas there are tortoises and a variety of birds and maritime plants. Whilst some look for the wild life others may take another opportunity for a quick dip from the beach during the warmer months. After leaving the beach at Cala Tirent we make our way across rough volcanic rock to the tower of Fornells, originally built to look out for marauding pirates. We finish in Fornells for refreshments before taking a coach back to the hotel.

  • Distance

    9.94 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    290m

The South West Coast

We follow the ‘Cami de Cavalls' between Santa Galdana and Son Xoriguer. The path goes partly along the open rocky cliff top and partly a little inland through pleasant pine woodland. In places it dips down into wonderful sandy bays which are difficult to access, except on foot. These are often quoted as being "some of the best beaches on earth". We picnic at one and have time to soak up the beauty and have a memorable paddle or swim, if warm enough.

  • Distance

    7.46 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    50m

Trepuco and Fort Marlborough

We walk from the hotel around a creek where Admiral Lord Nelson's ships took on fresh water. Heading inland we may visit a site of talayots and taulas, then pass along country lanes through farmland to the Cami de Cavalls and a Napoleonic watch tower, guarding the approach to Port Mahon. We descend into the delightful creek of St Stephen and the huge fort built by the Duke of Marlborough. This is a good spot for a picnic lunch. A Roman road takes us across country to drop into the fishing harbour of Cala Fonts to find refreshment. We have views of many strategically and historically important sites in the harbour. We continue, crossing the old parade ground of the British garrison of Georgetown and back to the hotel in Port Mahon.

  • Distance

    7.46 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

Torre d'en Gaumes

Son Bou to Es Migorn Gran En route to the south-east of Menorca, we spend an hour exploring the large ancient settlement of Torre d'en Gaumes. Originally established 3,500 years ago, its use continued through Roman times and into the Middle Ages. From Son Bou we walk along the beach, on the dunes and on board-walks to pick up the Cami de Cavalls to resort of San Tomas. Continuing west along a section of the coast popular with naturists we reach Barranca Binigaus and take the path north up this narrow limestone gorge. We make a diversion, into a cathedral like cave. Our route then follows an ancient rocky mule track out of the gorge. In thirty minutes we are quenching our thirst in Es Migorn Gran, before taking the coach back to Mahon.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

This Grade 4 holiday includes a leisurely pace of full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain and is likely to include an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walking will probably include about 3 hours of walking, with full days having around 5 hours. Menorca has little in the way high or steep ground so the walking is not strenuous. The maximum altitude we reach on foot during this holiday is 120m.

Some dates are perfect for those with an interest in flowers appealing to gardeners, nature lovers and photographers alike. Our walks on these dates you give you plenty of time to appreciate some of nature's finest wild blooms. Your enthusiastic leader will adjust the pace to suit the interests of the group, though may not be a flower expert.

Brexit Passport Advice

You should have at least 6 months validity left on your passport from your date of arrival.

If you renewed a 10 year passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date. These extra months will not count, so you should ensure that your passport is not older than 9 years and 6 months from the date of issue at the time of travel.

You may wish to renew your passport sooner rather than later, in order to make sure you have it in time for your holiday or travel plans.

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

You must be adequately insured to join our holidays. We do not insist that you insure with us but we require that you are adequately insured for the nature of your holiday. You will be unable to participate in our local walking and other activity programmes without being able to demonstrate that you have valid travel insurance.

Please ensure that as a minimum your travel insurance policy covers you for travel to your holiday destinations (country and geographical region) and for medical expenses, mountain rescue (including helicopter rescue) and emergency repatriation to your home country in the event of illness or injury. Your policy should also provide adequate cover for the activities, included and optional, you are likely to participate in during your holiday.

See our brochure or website for further advice regarding holiday insurance.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

EHIC Cards

Please take your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you; it will help you in the event of you needing medical assistance during your holiday. Please note that the EHIC has an expiry date, so please check that your card is valid for the duration of your holiday. Please note however the EHIC should not be considered a substitute for medical or travel insurance.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at www.gov.uk/travelaware. Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
