Buy a house in Menorca and hike through the beautiful landscapes of your new island home

Nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts buying a house in Menorca is the right thing to do.

Revive and come alive on Menorca! The island is not only famous for its beautiful sandy beaches and variety of flora and fauna, it is also a well loved destination for hiking, walking and cycling tours. Brilliant and varied hiking trails provide the perfect way to explore the island and get a feel for the different areas. One of the absolute favourites and most comprehensive is the Camí de Cavalls, a 200 kilometre long trail going right around the island, which was completed in 2010 and which we would like to introduce to you in more detail in this article.

You have already spent a holiday or two on this beautiful Balearic island and would like to buy your own property here. Our recommendation is do it! Menorca is a Mediterranean paradise and an extremely attractive property location for second home buyers. The island is not overrun by mass tourism despite idyllic coves and beaches, a medley of little jetties and harbours and a glorious mellow atmosphere where time does not matter. Make full use of the comprehensive knowledge of the real estate agents at Engel & Völkers Menorca and go ahead and buy a beautiful home with confidence.

Once you find and settle in your new home, take a hike and discover the beauty of the island

Camí de Cavalls is perhaps the most well known and among the best hiking trails that was originally created for military purposes and has been in existence since the 17th century. Take your choice, there are many ways to take the trail, ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding, you will meet nature lovers from all over the world alongside the friendly locals. The Camí de Cavalls crosses a wide variety of landscapes, from beaches and forests to urban locations and agricultural / farming areas. The highlights are the Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve and the beautiful surroundings of the Faváritx lighthouse. Another favourite ‘easier trail’ by mountain bike is the KtE Mahon. You will pass through Es Castell, Sant Lluis and Llucmacanes, covering a total of 30 kilometres. These routes are best taken in autumn or spring, when temperatures on the island are cooler.
