Activities in Menorca

Horse trips

The Menorcan horse breed is of origin from the southern part of Spain and it was adapted until it developed the characteristics that distinguish it. It is also the center of the patron saint festivities where Menorcan dressage is manifested by performing with the riders a spectacular jump that shakes the Menorcan people. It is about staying on two legs only supporting the hind legs with a very high inclination that makes the rider part of the horse to remain in the saddle. One of the activities that is most identified with Menorca is to do the route from Camí de Cavalls.
Paseos a caballo

Being in Menorca and doing the Camí de Cavalls route on horseback is something that will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
The first means of transport used on the island for the purpose of defense of the coasts was this beautiful animal that traveled the perimeter of the coast doing surveillance tasks. The routes on horseback are designed and personalized to the level of each person, they are very well trained, they are very calm and they already know the routes themselves.

It is recommended to bring water and sun protection since in Menorca in summer it is hot and the routes last between 30 minutes and 2 hours.
Here are some recommendations of companies that make these wonderful routes on horseback.

Boat trip and rental

Knowing Menorca by boat is a different opportunity to rediscover this exciting island, you will reach beaches that cannot be accessed in any other way. There is nothing more beautiful than reaching parts of the island that cannot be reached by car or walking and being able to enjoy the turquoise water of Menorca.

There is a difference between the south and north coast. The north is more abrupt and wild, while the south is usually calmer. As Menorca is in this Mediterranean enclave, there are changes in the winds that modify the weather conditions. A tip from those of us who live on the island is to make sure which way the wind blows and go in the opposite direction.

Puerto de Mahón

There are boat departures from Ciutadella that travels a part of the South coast and offers us a coastal navigation calling at one of the best known southern beaches. They usually offer a lunch within the excursion itself, it is a way to take the day of sailors enjoying to the fullest the color and bathing in these crystalline waters that distinguish Menorca.

A separate chapter is the rental of boats. Depending on what length you do not need a degree, but still you should have a minimum knowledge so as not to put the people you carry at risk. You can start a small tour either online or through books of basic knowledge to set sail at sea. Here are some boat companies, some can also rent boats without a license.
