This guidebook is split into two parts. In the first, 16 one-day walks and one 4-day trek across the island lead you mostly inland to discover Menorca's castles, former military fortifications and picturesque windmills and houses, as well as its huge taulas and talaiots (ancient stone structures). The second is a 10-day circular trek of the long-distance historic bridleway CamI de Cavalls (path of horses), which leads you round the island's coastline of dramatic cliffs and secluded beaches. The 185km trail was completely restored in 2011 to offer plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding. The guide provides practical information on transport, accommodation, refreshment and ways to explore even in the low season, as well as factual information on the castles, fortifications, windmills, towns and prehistoric stone 'taulas'. Menorca has long been known for its Balearic beaches, this guide looks beyond the summer sun to the wide reach of potential the island offers for walkers.
