Favàritx Lighthouse

As you ride your rent a bike Menorca to Faváritx you will notice it’s deserted, lunar like surroundings, which will make you feel you are on another planet. Erected on black slate rocks, the most famous lighthouse was built in 1917. The road that leads up to Cap de Favàritx also allows you to discover the ‘Cos des Síndic ‘, which is of great ecological importance. The water you will see is brought by rainfalls and storms. It is also a great place to watch the sunrise and sunset.

Lighthouse of Mahón – Sant Carles

This lighthouse opened in 1852 and it was built inside military installations, where the remains of the castle of Sant Felipe are located. The Lighthouse of Sant Carles can be considered the oldest in Menorca. The views to “Fort Marlborough” or the Fortress of Isabel II are a must-see if you are close by and in a fully comp car hire Menorca.

Isla del Aire Lighthouse

Before the construction of the Moscarter lighthouse in Ibiza 1977, El Aire was the highest lighthouse of the Balearic Islands, which has 165 spiral stairs. Situated just off the southeast coast of Menorca, Lizard island (as the locals call it), is the natural habitat of the black lizard, a reptile that has become one of the main characteristics of this island and can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. To get to this island you can’t travel by car hire Menorca or bike rental Menorca. The only way to visit the island is by boat hire from Mahon. The lighthouse can also be seen from the nearby beach of Punta Prima.

 

Lighthouse of Cavalleria

The northernmost lighthouse of Menorca was inaugurated in 1857 to reduce the more than 700 ship accidents, which happened on its shores since the fourteenth century. The lighthouse is located more than 90 meters above sea level, surrounded by spectacular cliffs and is an excellent spot to enjoy the sunset and panoramic views of the north coast.

There is also an Indiana Jones-like cave to the left of the lighthouse which is a must see, but don’t forget to pack a torchlight if your mobile doesn’t come with one.

We suggest to rent a car in Menorca for this trip as it’s a bit out of the way for a bike hire Menorca.

Lighthouse of Sa Farola

Also known as the Ciutadella Lighthouse, it is only a 20-minute walk under pine trees away from the city harbour. It was inaugurated in 1863 and because it was built so close to the water, they decided 10 years later, to construct a wall to stop it from being flooded by the waves on stormy days. You can get the best views of the Castle Sant Nicolau, as well as stunning sunsets looking towards the neighbouring island of Mallorca.

Lighthouse of Artrutx

We continue our journey with Binicars rent a car Menorca to the western lighthouse of Artrutx, having the oldest lantern of them all and located at 7 kilometers from Ciutadella. Built in 1851. Eight years later, black and white stripes were added to the tower, making it the only one of the Balearics with this particular feature..

With the Capdepera lighthouse, in Mallorca, these two lighthouses mark the two ends which separate the islands. It is definitely one of the most spectacular places, not only to enjoy wonderful sunsets, but also to spend a special time in its restaurant.

Punta Nati Lighthouse

A decade after its launch into action on the north coast, the Punta Nati continues to have the same luminous appearance as back in 1913, showing 3 + 1 white flashes every 20 seconds. It was built due to the French government pressures to avoid accidents and shipwrecks.

The terrain surrounding the lighthouse is full of dangerous cliffs and on the road leading up to it, the landscape is full and rugged (typical of this area of the island known as the ‘dry Menorca’), where you can spot some very rare old century constructions which serve as shelter for the animals in winter.

Don’t forget if you are visiting Menorca you can rent a car at Mahon airport or many companies also deliver rent a scooter Menorca straight to the airport.

It is Cheaper of Course:

If you are on a tight budget, scooter rentals work out cheaper and can help you save on fuel costs. The petrol tank on a scooter is very small in comparison to a car, therefore costs very little to fill up. You can spend your leftover cash on other things you wish to do!

Perfect for Taking in the View:

Menorca is a beautiful island. Sitting in a car doesn’t quite let you see everything, but riding high on a scooter will let you take in the breathtaking views all around the island.. You can also take the less explored narrow roads, where cars and local transport cannot travel.

Easy to Park and Hop off:

One of the most significant advantages of hiring a scooter in Menorca is that you can park anywhere without having to pay for parking. Finding an adequate parking space for cars can be at a cost and have you driving around for a while. Since bikes are smaller and narrower in size, you can squeeze them into small spaces easily and just hop off.

 

Saves Time on your trip:

Time is the true essence of a trip, especially when you have too many places to visit. Local transport can prove detrimental when you have little time to move around the city. Finding and hiring a taxi may take you longer than just hopping on your bike and visiting the nearest Art Gallery.

Scooters are Environmental Friendly:

We are truly aware of the importance of living in a greener environment. As a tourist, you will be doing a favour to Menorca in reducing the air pollution level by renting a scooter. 125/125 cc Scooters have smaller engines, which emit less C02 than cars.

What is the Best Scooter Rental Company in Menorca?

While there are many scooter rental service providers, Binicars is one of the leading companies for car and scooter hire, recognised for their vast fleet of vehicles and excellent customer service. You can hire a scooter directly from the airport or visit their office in Calan Porter to choose your bike. Check their website for more details.
