Jeep Safari in Menorca

Discovering the secret paths of the island | ©Jezz Timms

The sunset in Menorca is the most beautiful moment of the day, and luckily, it has an endless number of places from where to enjoy the sunset in a way that you will not find anywhere else in the world. Coves, beaches and viewpoints from which to witness the spectacle of colors that takes place between the sky and the sea every evening.

But also, the sunset is a time to gather and enjoy the essence of life, sharing special moments with others. One experience that revolves around this is the Sunset Jeep Safari Menorca Experience, a Jeep tour of Menorca at sunset. Below is everything you need to know about this adventure.

My favorite
Sunset Jeep Safari Menorca

A jeep adventure, at sunset, in exclusive places of the island

Duration: 7 hours
From $ 126 at Hellotickets

Menorca is a tremendously captivating island with landscapes of natural beauty that are worth discovering in the company of a local guide who knows them like the back of his hand. In this excursion by Jeep you will visit some lesser known places of the island, either because they have limited access or because they are unknown to most tourists.

This tour of Menorca starts in the late afternoon and lasts until late at night, with a total duration of 7 hours. The starting time of the experience depends on the time of the year, as it depends on the time the sun goes down.

You will visit various landscapes and places on the island and arrive at the edge of a forest on a private ranch, to discover a cliff from where you can watch the sunset while enjoying the sea breeze of the last hour of the day.

The experience includes live music and a tasting of local agricultural products. This Jeep excursion is perfect if you are traveling to Menorca as a couple or with a group of friends.

Why I like this option: Beyond the gourmet experience and enjoying the sunset in a privileged environment, the essence of the Sunset Jeep Safari Menorca is to discover what lies beyond the best known coves and beaches of the island.

Recommended if... you want to really get to know Menorca with a guide who knows all the corners that most tourists miss by staying only on the surface of what this jewel of the Balearic Islands has to offer.

The Jeep Safari Itinerary

The route includes a visit to the Pedreres de S'Hostal, ancient stone quarries that have been shaped and built to become a landscaped labyrinth with impressive rock formations; paths through forests and meadows, which depending on the time of year will have one color scheme or another; fields with archaeological remains and old mills with viewpoints overlooking the villages of Es Mercadal or Ferrerías; and ravines with inaccessible caves where a variety of birds of prey hide their nests.

Once you arrive at the private ranch in the north of the island, the final destination of the excursion, you will have the opportunity to observe the process of making artisanal products such as sausage, cheese and bread in a wood-fired oven, and of course taste them with a glass of wine or a beer.

Free time to explore at your leisure.

Something to keep in mind is that beyond the route proposed in this excursion by Jeep, you are free to explore a specific area or visit a point of interest on the island as part of the tour, and they will even propose several private access places that you can visit if you request it. And in case you travel to Menorca in a large group, it can be a good idea to make this excursion as a private experience, since you have the possibility to do so.

You will be picked up at your hotel

A huge advantage of this excursion is that you will be picked up at your accommodation in Ciutadella or Mahon or wherever it suits you. You can also meet the group in Es Mercadal.

On the way back, you will be dropped off at the same starting point or in Fornells. It is a good idea to spend the rest of the night in this small village in the north of Menorca. The organizers of the experience are quite flexible and open to provide you with any kind of comfort as long as it is in their hands.

You can go alone, as a couple or in a group.

The vehicles are either seven or nine seater, so bear this in mind when booking if you are going in a group.

Alex's Traveller Tip

If the weather is bad on the day of your experience, you can call to cancel the tour or postpone it, but you don't have to: on rainy days the Jeep tour is still available and is usually one of the most popular activities on the island.
