What Menorca offers in spring
Spring is a time of calm, which allows you to enjoy Menorca with peace and quiet, enjoying the authentic Menorcan rhythms.
The pre-summer season is a magnificent time to walk around an island that preserves all the green and all the calm that define it. Minorcan spring is characterized by being a transition season from green to ocher that prevails in summer. An instant in which nature takes center stage. For this reason, we propose some outdoor plans. However, just as it happens in the countryside, Menorca undergoes a cultural awakening during these months, in which the offer to enjoy good live music multiplies. These are the appointments and experiences that we recommend from Faustino Gran.
1. The ideal time to walk the Camí de Cavalls. The mild temperatures of spring make this season one of the best times of the year to travel along the well-known trail. With options to skirt the entire coast of the island or choose only the sections that interest you the most, you have up to 20 stages in which to discover the great variety of Menorca's landscape. With the addition of the blooming of the spring flora, with species as exotic as the small orchids that populate some areas of the island. Would you like to travel this path on the back of a Menorcan horse? During spring, animals are still allowed to pass through coves and beaches. Take advantage of these weeks to live an experience that will completely connect you with the spirit of the island.
2. Almost deserted beaches. Does the typical picture of the paradisiacal cove with hardly any bathers sound familiar to you? This image is hard to find in summer. But it is the one that prevails during the spring. The temperature of the water is still cold, but on a good sunny day, there are those who dare to savor an early swim in the company of silence. Discover the solemnity of the cliffs of coves like Macarella, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain.
3. Jazz takes over Menorca. Spring and good music go hand in hand in Menorca. The appointment with the most outstanding figures on the international scene of this genre reaches its 24th edition in 2022. A not insignificant brand, which also takes advantage of the different cultural venues on the island to offer a wide variety of shows. From young promises to established names, the program includes performances that are aimed at audiences of very different ages. The only condition: to want to enjoy good music.
4. The local product comes to the fore. Did you know that the famous cheese of Menorca stops being made during the summer months? The dry countryside means that the cows do not produce as much milk during the summer, so winter and spring are used to produce the famous delicacy. It is precisely this seasonality of the local product -and not just cheese- that encourages local producers and institutions to show the great variety of fruits that are obtained from the land, through fairs and gastronomic events.
A special moment, capable of bringing out the most intense colors in nature, and cultural plans to choose from. What do you fancy?
