The following program is an example of the route that we can carry out. It describes the stages that can be done to go around the island, indicating the points where we can spend each night. The sections on foot can be adapted to each participant, according to their level and physical condition, for each of the days.
We must also bear in mind that we depend on the weather, so the route we take will depend on the sea and wind conditions. The boarding point will also be decided two days before and the crew will be informed.
Day 1. Mahon
Day of arrival. You can board from 3pm.
Day 2. Mahón - Cales Coves
It will be a day of sailing, to relax on board and start enjoying the Menorcan coast from the sea. We will leave the port of Mahón and head towards the south of the island, along its coast until we reach Cales Coves, our first stop for the night.
Day 3. Cales Coves - Cala Macarella and Macarelleta
After breakfast, we will leave towards Santo Tomás, where we will disembark to start the first stage on foot. This stage takes place between pine forests and cliffs, and passes through the best virgin coves with turquoise waters on the island, such as Playa de Binigaus, Cala Escorxada, Cala de Trabalúger, and Cala Fustam, reaching the coves of Mitjana and Mitjaneta.
