Imagine stepping into a world where serene beaches, untouched landscapes, and a rich tapestry of culture and history blend seamlessly together. This is what going walking Menorca offers—an adventure that transcends the ordinary. While the idea of traveling to this majestic island might seem distant at the moment, it’s the perfect time to dream and plan your next escape. Menorca, often overlooked in favor of its more famous neighbors, holds secrets and delights that are best explored on foot. WAW Travel is excited to unveil four compelling reasons why Menorca should be your next walking holiday destination, beckoning you to tread its paths and uncover its hidden gems.

Walking Menorca, what to know about the island

Part of the Balearic Islands in the western Mediterranean Sea, Menorca is the second largest island after Mallorca. The uniqueness of Menorca? Being uncontaminated, wild and less known by the tourists. There are no such parties like in Ibiza, not many big hotel chains nor many all-inclusive resorts. Great part of the visitors that come to this island are looking for its peaceful atmosphere all-year round, enhanced by beautiful relaxing beaches and wonderful Mediterranean weather.

In addition, for those who want to experience something more, walking Menorca gives the chance to visit several attractive cultural sites and to practice a wide range of open-air activities, such as strolling through the narrow streets of Mahon, visiting the highest mountain of Menorca, the Monte Toro, where you can find a 17th-century church and a statue of the Virgin Mary with a bull at her feet. On the island, you will find mainly small-scale boutique hotels and cute white houses with the typical entrance gate of Menorca that is the same everywhere. And not unimportantly: the island has been listed in its entirety on UNESCO since 2006, in the category of bios reserve. The island is beautiful, well-kept, natural, authentic, green, untouched and peaceful.
