A trip to remember...

My first hiking trip on Menorca was one to never forget, partly due to the great organization and preparation of WAW.travel. I didn't have to think about anything other than walking for 3 days and enjoying the beautiful Cami de Cavalls coastal route. For questions, Roberto was quick to answer and was also able to provide us with good advice along the way. Our group choose a more luxurious trip and the hotels were really enjoyable. Especially the boutique hotels in Ciutadella and Mahon were an experience in itself. In short, a trip to remember and to repeat!

Reborn after our walkingholiday

The start from Ciutadella with a very nice hotel was great for a lovely walk through the old town. During the hike we had beautiful weather, sun and not too hot. Cala en Porter was also a very nice little hotel. At Cala Galdana we occasionally saw horse riders on the trail, beautiful black horses of Menorca. Went for a swim at Binigaus with its beautiful beach! It was a wonderful walking holiday, away from all cars, etc. Walked in a very varied nature that recharged us completely. Thank you Annemiek and Roberto for your beautifully tour! Carlien and Marcel

Fantastic experience

Walking from hotel to hotel on the Cami de Cavalls was a fantastic experience! WAW travel organized a wonderful holiday with clean and hospitable hotels including luggage transport, so that I could be surprised while walking what the adventure would bring. Along a beautiful coast with idyllic bays, sometimes through the pure and tranquil interior. After walking to the beach, swimming in the azure blue sea or a dip in the pool at the hotels. What else do you want? Next year the northern route of the Cami de Cavalls and once again stroll through the charming towns of Ciutadella and Mahon!

Genieten met een hoofdletter G!

WAW.travel organized for me a perfect walking holiday in Menorca. Frankly, I didn't know in advance that the island was so beautiful. And the water, I've never seen it so blue. The walking path is well marked. And takes you from the most deserted beaches, to viewpoints with the most beautiful views. I was warmly welcomed everywhere, the accommodations were clean and well cared for. I would recommend this walking holiday to WAW.travel to everyone! Nicole, June 202
