Ride to Cala Mitjana
Duration: 1.5 hours
A circular route starting and finishing at the stables.
This route goes along rural lanes and the Cami de Cavalls, to Cala Mitjana, a beautiful virgin cove on the south coast.
It is the most recommended route for people who have never or rarely ridden, for children and less fit people, or those who wish to enjoy a quiet not too long ride.
During the off season we can ride on the beach. In summer this is not permitted and instead we view the coast from a vantage point with spectacular views of the coastline, with its turquiose sea and white sand coves. It is an area of spectacular natural beauty.
NOTE: Children 6 to 8 years old can ride our pony "Festuc" or with another suitable small horse. The little ones of the family, from 3 to 5 years, can ride with an adult on the same horse, in a double chair.
Ride to Cala Fustam
Available during the summer
Duration: 2.5 hour
Circular tour starting and finishing at the stables
Fantastic tour in a 100% natural place, totally unspoilt, through rural ways away from villages and urbanizations.
This tour allowing us to discover a unknown landscape of the island covered with lush vegetation to the seashore. We can see some of the fabulous coves of the south coast: Cala Trebalúger, Cala Escorxada and Cala Fustam. In addition, in Cala Fustam we can go down to the beach with the horses, put the horses into the water, make us photos and make a short stop in case someone wants to rest.
CALA FUSTAM: In Menorca there are only two beaches where it is allowed to go riding on horseback. Both beaches are in the town of Es Migjorn Gran, near to our stables. If you want to ride on horseback on the beach, even in summer, consult our timetables to visit Cala Fustam. We'll can ride on the sand and, if there aren't people swimming, we can enjoy with the horses in the water (if you want, of course!).
This excursion go across the "Camí de Cavalls" (Horse's Way) and other private rural ways, wich allow us access to the beaches.
NOTE: This tour is not suitable for beginner children under 10 years. Children riding can usually do this route from the 8 years. If younger we require that they have taken the route to Cala Mitjana previously.
Tour of south coast beaches
Only experienced riders (walk, trot and canter)
Duration: 3.5 - 4 hours
Difficulty: medium / hard
A circular route starting and ending in the stables
The beach tour route is intended for experienced riders. It requires mastery of all three gaits, having to control the horse without problems both on the trot and on the gallop.
During the tour we visited the beach Binigaus, ideal for a good gallop on one of the longest beaches in Menorca. We will also see Cala Escorxada and Cala Fustam, two coves in the countryside away from towns and villages. also we reach Trebalúger beach, one of the most beautiful on the island.
You will also discover a hidden Menorca, with tracks through the forest and across the fields that will surprise. Part of our route is along the Camí de Cavalls, and we also use private roads to access areas where the Camí de Cavalls doesn't permit access.
It is a very complete route to enjoy both the coast and the Menorcan countryside, ideal for those who habitually ride on horseback.
Minimum age: 10 years.

From our farm d'Es Calafat we have access to the "Camí de Cavalls" on the south coast, where we have several coves and unspoilt beaches nearby. All our routes pass 100% in a natural environment, rural roads and wildernesses. Furthermore, our horses live in freedom, with over 100 hectares at their disposal, to have a dignified and happy life.
Depending on the level of the participants we can organize outings from 1 hour to 3 hours or more, to visit one or more of these coves of the south coast. With the shortest route we can visit Cala Mitjana, a small but lovely cove hidden among the cliffs, very close to our stables. Riding a little more we can reach Trebalúger, one of the most famous beaches of Menorca, which allows us exciting gallops across the sand. Also nearby are Cala Fustam and Cala Escorxada, both distant from towns and villages. Finally, with a longer ride, you can also reach the Platja de Binigaus, a beach more than a kilometre long surrounded by thick Mediterranean forest.
