Camí de cavalls

Years ago Menorca had a beautiful coastal path that went right round the island, crossing remote bays, gullies, woods and fields. It was known as the Camí de Cavalls (Bridle Path), and used by the British soldiers on horseback to guard the coast when they occupied Menorca. This wonderful circuit has been lovingly restored and signposted so that nowadays everyone can enjoy it. It is well worth walking right round the island over a few days (although you are not allowed to camp on the beaches), or do it in stages. One way or the other, it is a remarkable way to truly appreciate both the countryside and the coastline.
