HIKE CAMÍ DE CAVALLS
Camí de Cavalls runs through an ancient path that surrounds Menorca, very close to the coast. It is the perfect way to discover the natural wealth and heritage of the island. It is divided up into 20 stages, each stretch being well marked with signposts.
This is only one of the hundreds of hiking routes that exist in Menorca, an island that is perfect to be discovered walking. Having so many different routes you can always find one adapted to your wishes at any time. You can either enjoy a day hiking with your children or with your friends. Find a route with the level of effort you preferred and enjoy it by gazing at the different landscapes. You will want to immortalise all of them.
DISCOVER MENORCA FROM THE SEA
Would you like to live an unforgettable experience? Menorca can be discovered both walking or rowing. Don’t you believe it? Just take a kayak and row around the island enjoying it from the sea.
This is indeed one of the best options to be experienced in Menorca. Discover its idyllic beaches and coves from another point of view. This way you will be able to visit some incredible places that cannot be reached on foot, like the caves on the cliffs. It is a worthy natural spectacle for the senses.
You can also discover the coast by PWC or by boat. Again you will be able to enjoy some unique spots that can only be reached from the sea. Feel either your adrenaline rush riding your bike or the peace of anchoring your boat to have a dip in the Mediterranean, you choose.
SNORKELLING, EXPERIENCE PARADISE UNDER THE SEA
Snorkelling offers you the chance to discover Menorca from beneath. Take your snorkel with you and see the incredible spots hidden under the crystal waters of the island.
Cala Tamarells, located in the heart of S’Albufera des Grau Natural Park, is one of the perfect spots for snorkelling. Here you will contemplate an amazing meadow of Posidonia -a flowering plant which lives in the sands of the Mediterranean.
Cala Viola de Ponent is another cove where you can practise snorkelling and wonder at the bottom of the sea. It is located in the centre of the North Sea Reserve of Menorca.
At ARTIEM Audax Hotel, located in Cala Galdana, we will be more than pleased to welcome you back this season. You will be able to enjoy the Mediterranean sea from an extraordinary natural environment with incredible unspoilt coves on this side of the island. Spring is just the perfect time of the year to enjoy snorkelling and explore the bottom of our sea. Menorca has a vast natural heritage and this is the reason why the island was declared a Biosphere Reserve.
MENORCA BY BICYCLE
Should you prefer cycling, we also encourage you to explore the island on your bicycle along its more than well-signed 20 paths from north to south and from east to west.
You will be able to cycle along with rural areas and gaze at gently undulating landscapes. This is another healthy way to explore the island and breath fresh pure air.
At ARTIEM we are Cycling-Friendly and we provide you with everything you need to practise your favourite sport: from a BikePark where you can store and lock your own bike to a Bike Cleaning Station and a Bike Repair Bank, as well as the best routes to make the most of your stay on the island.
MENORCA RIDING A HORSE
Imagine the freedom to ride a horse to explore the island. Feeling nature and discovering incredible places from the back of your horse. It is possible in Menorca. It is simply a different way to enjoy our paradise along the coastal or inner paths or even following our Cami de Cavalls, surrounding the whole island, which would take you between 3 or 5 days. All options and excursions are to be adapted to any participant, anytime. However, the main characters are always Menorca-breed horses. Our horses are noble, with hot blood and really vigorous. Succumb to their instinct and let them guide you to an unforgettable experience.
