Summer In Menorca – Cami de Cavalls



 

Menorca is a great place for easy but interesting hiking. The coastal path Cami de Cavalls circles the island. It is a remarkable path that has existed since 1330 when King James 11 asked settlers to keep at least one war horse ready and to use the path to watch over and defend the island. The British and French also used the path to their advantage during their occupation of the island. The 185 km path is divided into 20 sections that can be walked as a single long hike or individually – one section a day. Many locals use it for short evening walks. On several evening, I joined them to walk from Cales Piques to Punta Nati, watching the magnificent Menorca sunsets.
