OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

Our Menorca walking holiday is suitable for hikers with a minimum of physical fitness. Distances are relatively small and you only have small slopes to conquer.  From April to mid June, the flora and birdlife is at its peak and a joy to discover. From September to November the island is a haven of peace and quiet, with perfect sea temperatures. We would highly recommend this holiday to ramblers who seek the peace and quiet of nature, far away from tourists. Ideal for botanists and birdwatchers!  We would advise you to avoid the summer.
