Walking the Cami de Cavalls, Menorca.


Walking in  Menorca [and chasing after sticks]
as you may have guessed is

My Favourite!

For this weeks adventure we had a great time walking a section of the Cami de Cavalls starting at Son Bou and headed east to Cala'n Porter.

The walk takes in three of Menorca's magnificent barranc's, which if you don't know are deep limestone gorges. We started by climbing the high ground to the east of Son Bou, from where you get magnificent views over the resort and all the way to Majorca on a clear day. I wasn't so bothered about the views, I wanted to get on but .......

Menorca's near vertical sided Barranc's

Menorca's barrancs

We descend into the wonderful "barranc de Llucalari" and had great fun scrambling over and around the boulders that litter the floor before arriving at Llucalari beach, small and very rocky.

The beach when we visited was covered with mounds of dry weed, I had great fun bounding over and under it :-) It was even softer than my bed!! After exploring up and down the cliffs we set off up the eastern arm of the barranc slowly climbing up and out on to level ground.

The middle section of the walk takes in dry stone walled fields, quiet country lanes, I had to walk by his side :-( all the way to the Cami Vell de Cala en Porter which slowly takes you down into the "barranc de Cala en Porter".


Exploring and scrambling over rocks My Favourite!

Exploring Menorca's Cami de Cavalls

In this last section you just follow the barranc as it winds its way down to Cala'n Porter. But there is some fun to be had, at one point you have to climb up and nearly out of the barranc following a narrow path along the cliff side passing and exploring caves, and watching the Booted Eagles soaring overhead, I barked at them and got told of!! Then it's back down the steep barranc side, past the fruit farms and orange groves and on to Cala'n Porter beach for a well needed rest.

If you fancy walking Son Bou to Cala en Porter, Menorca.
A guide and maps can be found on
 Menorca the Guide along with other walks.

Envy!


I have never been to Menorca, but my mom and dad have and they love it. Never stop talking about it when they come home. I get left behind but now they have a campervan they keep promising to take me there when they retire. I have my passport all ready.

They usually go twice a year and last September they went for two weeks and found tht the Cami de Cavalls were opening again and they went on lots of new walks in the North of the island.

You are so lucky Sally to have a dad who takes you on lovely walks when all the tourists have gone home and I bet the sea is still nice and warm.

i'll look out for you when I come.

Oh thank you Titch
How nice of you to leave a comment, but how can they leave you behind!! I wouldn't allow them to leave me :-) Tell them to hurry up and retire then we can meet up for a megga adventure :-)

What with one thing and another I haven't been on a new adventure for ages, but last Sunday I did! you can read about it on the Punta Prima adventure page.
