Need To Know

Your hosts recommend that you fly in and out of Menorca Airport, but you’re free to fly whenever, providing you meet the agreed arrival and departure times.

Start point
Your host recommends arriving a day early and staying in Mahón. This small town is very close to the airport (15 minutes at most). Transport is simple to Mahón from the airport by bus or taxi. Your host will meet you at your accommodation in Mahón at 09:30 the next day and to transfer you 15 to 30 minutes to the kayak start point.

Finish Point
Your host will drop you back in the Mahón area at 16:00.

Getting there and away
Menorca Airport (MAH) is served by flights from all over Europe. You’re free to book whichever flights you like as long you’re at the train station in decent time. We will contact you before you leave to check your arrival and departure plans.

For extra financial protection against unforeseen circumstances, we recommend you book your flights using a credit card.

You’ll get tasty continental breakfasts, followed by filling rice, pasta and salad dishes for lunch. For dinner, expect more energetic meals like pasta, rice and vegetables. Hosts can cater to vegetarian and gluten-free diets.

Sunny and warm all year round, but it’s worth bringing warm clothes in case the weather drops in the evening or you need protection from the sun.

Your guides will provide everything you need, except a sleeping bag.

Your hosts kindly ask you bring:

  • Sleeping bag
  • Personal navigation equipment
  • Swimming costume
  • Kayaking appropriate clothing
  • Sun protection

They ensure that all their adventures have the smallest possible impact on the environment. They actively seek to use their love of nature to inspire others into taking action.

No worries, your host has a plan B that is equally as exciting. If the sea or weather conditions are not favorable on the Southern coast you will paddle the Northern coastline of Menorca. See the alternative trip itinary here

The exact route won’t be decided until several days before departure, so your hosts will send you a provisional itinerary, with daily stages and timetables and places of intermediate and overnight stops, so you get an idea of what’s to come.

If you book a private trip children over the age of 14 can join the adventure.

Location

View map

Menorca has long been a magnet for sun-seeking tourists, but there’s a whole world still to discover just off the beaten track. While the north of Menorca is known for its volcanic appearance and deep, red rock, the south is straight out of a postcard.

The landscape has been shaped over the centuries by the wind, resulting in otherworldly natural formations and whimsical rocky outcrops. In fact, if you were to close your eyes and imagine a Mediterranean paradise, this would be it: white sand beaches surrounded by turquoise water and calcareous cliffs concealing hidden coves. No wonder it was recently named a Biosphere Reserve.

Your host recommends arriving a day early and staying in Mahón. This small town is very close to the airport (15 minutes at most). Transport is simple to Mahón from the airport by bus or taxi.

What to Expect

Day 1: Paddle from Cala Sant Esteve to Cala Biniparratx

Meet your guides in the lobby of your hotel. They’ll bring you to the start point of the expedition in Cala Sant Esteve, where you’ll be briefed and instructed. Paddle for an hour and a half to your first big bay, La Punta Prima; a white sand beach with clear waters where you’ll stop for lunch.

Kayak for a further three hours along the south-east coastline, past the uninhabited islet of Illa de l’Aire and its blue and white stripe painted lighthouse, before reaching Cala Biniparratx. Set up camp for the night.

Approximately 4 to 5 hours paddling across 20 to 25km.

Day 2: Limestone cliffs and the Cales Coves

Wake up to the smell of hot coffee and take to the water, paddling west towards the Cales Coves, an ancient necropolis. Tuck into some lunch and have a swim before setting off for Cala Sant Llorenç, another beautiful cove.

Then it’s three more hours out at sea, paddling past two of the island’s biggest beaches, Son Bou and Binigaus. Back on dryland, walk to Binigaus ravine and visit the Cova dels Coloms. You’ll biovac here for the night.

Approximately 4 to 5 hours paddling across 20 to 25km.

Day 3: Discover Platja de Binigaus and Cala Talaier

Today you’ll discover a few of the islands lesser-known beaches: Escorxada, Fustam and Trebalúger. Stop for lunch in Cala Mitjana. Kayak past three of the island’s most famous beaches, Macarella, Macarelleta and Turqueta, until you reach tonight’s basecamp at Cala Talaier.

Approximately 4 to 5 hours paddling across 20 to 25km.

Day 4: Final Paddle and Journey Home

Wake up for a final day of exploration. Paddle past Son Saura, the biggest beach in the south-west, where you can have a short swim. Then it’s back to Son Xoriguer, a popular tourist beach, for around 16:00. You’ll then be picked up and brought back to Mahón, your hotel or the airport.

Approximately 4 to 5 hours paddling across 20 to 25km.

Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences. This trip is highly dependent on weather, sea conditions and forecasts.

Accommodation

Your hosts will work out all of the logistics of the trip, so all you need to do come nightfall is pull your kayak up the beach and set up the biovac. You’ll sleep under a new sky each night as you paddle from beach to beach, enjoying the solitude from secret beaches and coves accessible only by kayak. Fall asleep to the sound of the lapping ocean and wake up to the sound of the sea. Menorca is also one of the best places in Europe to stargaze, so expect crystal-clear nights.
