Hire a Kayak and canoeing
If you do not want to miss a single bit of Menorca beautiful coastline and would like to navigate safely, come to Menorca en kayak. You will kayak with our highly qualified instructors who are also experts on Menorca’s coastline. One of the best ways of discovering the island is without a doubt the kayaking expedition of several days. See sections Round Menorca (7 days) and Best of Menorca (4 days).
If you have done some sea kayaking and like the idea of planning your own self-guided adventure, go to section Your Trip where you will find all the information on how to plan your adventure.

Exploring Menorca on foot should be one of your holiday highlights as the scenery and terrain are so diverse and often spectacular. The walks around the coast are truly wonderful and highly recommended. You will find an invaluable guide to the walks in the villa- IL Cami De Cavalls. These are pathways forged by time that circumnavigate the island.
It's worth buying a copy- please don't take the villa copy with you.

A great map to buy before you arrive is The Walking Guide to Menorca, Tour-trail.
It is helpful because it shows how to reach the less accessible and often most desirable beaches. See the link below, copy and paste into your browser.

Have a look at
menorca.es as it has many contact names and keeps you up to date with possible events during your stay.

Horse riding
Try horse riding in Menorca, have a lesson, try a scenic horseback excursion to the coast along part of the Cami de Cavalls, or do the spectacular 'coast and beaches' ride. Children are always welcome for a pony ride.

Bird Watching
The most significant birdlife to be observed here in Menorca are the birds of prey – large Egyptian vultures, booted eagles, buzzards, red kites and peregrine are often sighted, especially during the nesting season in the barrancs – the hidden ravines which run from the center of the island to the southern beaches.

Many bird watching walks follow these ravines, which lie hidden in the limestone plateau of the southern half of the island and which provide ideal places nesting birds, with both eagles and vultures a common sight flying above.

The woodlands throughout the island are full of smaller birds, and in spring ring with the songs of nightingales nesting in the dense cover of holm oak, wild olive and pine. Hoopoes, blue rock thrushes and bee-eaters are commonly seen. With its strategic position in the western Mediterranean, the island is a perfect place for migrating birds to winter and take advantage of the mild climate and food resources the island has to offer in its wetlands.

Lastly, don't miss one of the many summer Fiestas. These are wonderful, colourful events that show case extraordinary horsemanship by training the horses to rear on their hind legs and walk on two legs though the crowd. Loud music rings out as the youth of the island play a dangerous game of daring each other to touch the heart of the horses as they rear. Food and drink flow freely, music and laughter accompany the celebration and the finale is a spectacular display of fireworks. Not to be missed.
If your holiday weeks line up with the Cala Fons Fiesta at the end of July you will be in for a treat because the fireworks are set off from the water and can be clearly seen and enjoyed from the upper villa terrace
