A seven days trip to Menorca  (flying with Volotea from Genoa) from 24th to 31st of July 2017.

Rented a car with https://www.hiperrentacar.com/it/, asking for a Fiat Panda or similar, ended up with a huge  Opel Meriva full optional and with just 450km. 220€. Nice car, but way too big to travel the narrow roads of Menorca.

I stayed in a room with bathroom and kitchen rented on AirBnb, in the outskirts of Ciutadella. Cheap (compared to average prices) triple room, 420€ for a week.

Fuerteventura Sur – Playa de Cofete (Mountain Bike)

A trip to Fuerteventura – October 2016


Playa de Cofete

Cofete is a large and wild beach located on the North coast of the Jandia peninsula. You only options to get there are a dirty road or paths.

By car it takes about 1 hour and more than 18km of dirty road from Jandia.

By bike you can follow the road to Cofete, then take the road below:


It leads you in the Burranco de Las Damas/Gran valle, up to a pass that separate the north from the south coast. You can even go there by foot, it is “only” an 11km walk back and forth.

First part of the path to Cofete: Burranco de Las Damas / Gran Valle

If you decide to go there by bike, please note that is a difficult road. not dangerous, but depending on your skill, you may have to get off the bike for 2/4km of the total. At the top of the hill, you’re likely to find a strong wind. It rised my bike and moved it, so be careful. But 100m over the top everything gets easier.
