Idyllic Menorca Cycle Overview

Discover quiet lanes in gentle landscapes that take you from a high-quality hotel to quiet coves, bustling towns and an exceptional final hotel.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • sleepy whitewashed villages and pristine coves
  • excellent seafood in two charming hotels
  • fascinating Talayotic monuments 

The least developed of the Balearic Islands, Menorca's rural interior of red sandstone mountains, green rolling hills and wooded gorges gradually give way to rocky coves, idyllic sandy beaches and fishing villages that line the coastline between the grand ports of Mahón and Ciutadella. The landscapes are awash with prehistoric sites, medieval palaces and historic churches, making Menorca a fascinating island to explore by bike or on which to relax by the sea.


 

Your two-centre holiday begins at the very heart of the island at the foot of Monte Toro, from where you discover both the rugged northern and softer southern coasts. Country lanes wind past fascinating archaeological remains, alongside ancient dry stone walls through pristine white villages to end at stunning cliffs and coves. You then cycle to the east coast where whitewashed houses and windmills give way to ancient forts and crumbling castles.  You have time to take in Ciutadella, the gracious Spanish port of the west and the dramatic fortifications that once commanded the entrance of the eastern British capital of Mahón. The landscape is dotted with vast numbers of megalithic Talayotic structures, medieval palaces and historic churches, making Menorca a fascinating and easy place to explore by bike, or on which to relax by the sea.
