The island is riddled with rural roads and pathways, one such road is the Cami den Kane, named after an illustrious Governor to the island during one of the British occupations. Like many routes it is marked by dry stone walls, grazing cattle and the aroma of pines, fresh fields and floral aromas, and always the smell of the salty sea air. All these pathways can be walked, horse ridden or cycled along, in fact the island is relatively flat meaning that you can enjoy the scenery in a sedate way, although for those who seek a challenge – we can oblige.
All the rural pathways tend to join together at some point, meaning that you can diversify your route thus preventing monotony. All around the island we have the old bridal path called the "Cami de Cavalls”. It has recently been cleared and prepared for use and guide books are available for your information or you can also participate in guided excursions, we have reputable companies that can help you.
For the cyclist, the island offers coastal routes, forest routes, gorges, short climbs and country and tarmac roads. Two major island tour competitions are arranged yearly; maybe you or your group can participate. Professional cycling guides or cycle hire can be arranged.
It`s not surprising that with so much water at hand that Minorca is a haven for water sports, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, diving etc are easily arranged. An additional advantage is that the island is affected by many local winds and therefore great for sailed sports. As you can imagine the island has many reputable nautical clubs and teaching schools-
If you practise scuba-diving then try a dive here with a professional school or group, we have such clean and transparent waters offering a full Mediterranean marine life - you will not be disappointed.
Canoeing is becoming very popular, and regular excursions can be arranged with the specialist guides. It is a superb way of experiencing the adventure of the sea whilst discovering caves, passing under the most astonishing natural bridges and enjoying the coastline.
For the amateur golfer, we can offer a small but very difficult 36 hole golf course. With over 300 days of sunshine a year you can be guaranteed a good game in an exquisite environment. Competitions are held throughout the year and any handicapped player can join.
On the island you can enjoy, rugby, cricket, basketball, paddle (a cross between tennis and squash) tennis, gym, motor bike trails, antique car rides, horse riding and races..... in fact any sport imaginable.
