Camí de Cavalls: from Cala en Porter to Binissafúller

Today we conclude our circular route around Menorca along the Camí de Cavalls, which we have been describing section by section in our blog.

If we finish the seven kilometers that we will detail in this post, we will have completed the entire circuit of the island benefitting from the landscape, the beauty and above all, in good health. Two hundred kilometers of walking are finished today with a gentle route, crossing the urbanisations of the southeast of the island and in many cases, walking on the paved roads.

The route starts in Binisafúller, in Caló Blanc, one of the most beautiful coves of Menorca. We will continue along the road until we reach the beach of Binisafúller, with its white sand protected from the sea to the east and to the west. We will then follow the edge of the beach along a path until we return to a road in Binissafúller, the Passeig de la Mar. Along the way, we will pass the Binisafúller Yacht Club, which has one of the most successful restaurants on the south coast thanks to its tapas and its unparalleled views. It will be worth making a stop.

Soon we will arrive at Binibèquer Vell, the famous urbanisation modelled on a traditional fishing village with narrow streets, painted an immaculate white. In our Discovery Menorca blog we already dedicate an article to describe life throughout the year in this idyllic Menorcan enclave. Once we have left the area, the path continues between the houses of Binibèquer Nou to pass very close to Cala Binibèquer, another picture perfect beach that is worth visiting. It hosts one of the most prized beach bars during the summer and if you find it open, it is well worth stopping for a break for an ice cream or a beer.

The road continues through the urbanisation of Cala Torret towards Cala Biniancolla. Here, you can see the Illa del Aire with its emblematic lighthouse. Biniancolla is a small summer resort with some fishermen’s houses that make this cove a dream place. It is worth going along one of the streets to see the landscape.

The last stage passes through the urbanisation of Son Ganxo, near one of the few Menorcan defense towers converted to offer accommodation. It is an building that belongs to the Insular Council of Menorca and its youth department (INJOVE) offers the possibility of renting for a few days. The road arrives at the beach of Punta Prima with picturesque views of the Illa del Aire and where you will find all the necessary services.
