SunBike Tour: Vuelta de Menorca

Mallorca's little sister with the big charme

You will find nature and peace in Menorca - the island awaits with gorgeous sand beaches and unspoilt landscapes. Discover the El Toro - Menorca's highest point (358 m), and the capital Mahón with the mediterrranean seas's biggest harbour and its mighty military base. The episcopal town of Ciutadella, with its architectural treasures, belongs to the island's tourist attractions! Let this special potpourri of nature and historical diversity surprise you! This nature paradise is characterised by history. There is a lot of space for cycling on the island, because 47% of the land is under protection.

TOUR PROFILE: A change between short ascents and enjoyable descents. Be prepared for minor roads, farm roads but also partly on low-traffi main roads and bicycle passable walking and hiking trails, which lead you as low traffic on mostly asphalt roads to their respective destination. Changes to the itinerary reserved.


TOUR ROUTE

1 ST DAY: BENVINGUTS A MENORCA!

The capital Mahón welcomes you with all its beauty: the old city with its English influences as well as the impressive natural harbour.

2ND DAY: MAHÓN-TOUR (APPROX. 30 KM)

After the welcome meeting, you start the bike tour to the south of  the  island,  to  the  village  of  Sant  Luis,  founded by the French, characterised by its windmill. Whitewashed walls line the path to the “white village” of Binibequer Vell with its intricate houses and narrow alleys. You cycle along the coast on your way back past Punta Prima Beach and the offshore lighthouse.

3RD DAY: MAHÓN – ES MERCADAL (APPROX. 60 KM) 

Today, you have to pack your bags. You cycle to Es Grau and  to  the  Albufera  Lagoon  with  its  numerous bird  species,  among  them  the  fish  eagle.  The lagoon is the centre of Menorca’s Biosphere Reserve. At the lighthouse of Faváritx, you are greeted  by  a  moon  landscape  of  grey-black  slate. The route takes you to the famous Es Mercadal, a culinary highlight.

4TH DAY: BEACHES OF THE NORTH (APPROX. 40 KM) 

From Es Mercadal, across the farmland lined with stonewashed walls, you discover the beaches of the  North,  which  are  collected  like  pearls  on  a single string: Pregonda, Binimel-là and Cavalleria with the former Roman harbour Sanitja, and, last but not least, the fishing village of Fornells where every  now  and  then  the  Spanish  King  used  to dine. The path takes you back to Es Mercadal.

5TH DAY: ES MERCADAL – CIUTADELLA (APPROX. 40 KM) 

The day begins with  packing, before  you  get to  the  village  of  Es  Gran  Migjorn  with  its  white houses. After Ferreries, we arrive at the bathing beach Cala Galdana and continue west on historical paths, past prehistoric sites with their taulas and talayots. Shaped by aristocracy and clergy, the former capital Ciutadella awaits at your destination.

6TH DAY: AROUND CIUTADELLA (APPROX. 10 TO 30 KM) 

.After breakfast, our guide will pick you up for a walk around town. In the afternoon, to conclude your cycle tour, a few options are at your disposal: visit the bays of Algaiarens, Cala Morell with its prehistoric burial caves, or the lighthouse of
Punta Nati, embedded in an impressively rugged cliff landscape.

7TH DAY: BEACHES OF TEH SOUTH (APPROX. 30 KM) 

With  Ciutadella  as  your  starting  point,  today  you  discover  the  beaches  of  the  South Macarella,  Turqueta  or  Son  Saura.  On your way back  you  cycle  between  stone  walls  past farmsteads, the so-called Llocs – with their own
cheese production. It's the end of the bike tour.
