Beautiful walk through the gorge to get to essentially a large hole in the ground. Having been spoilt by Derbyshire caves (rivers, stalactites, stalagmites, etc), cave underwhelming, although very massive, and worth a trip. Boys and other half were more impressed than I, but I was more impressed with the scenery on the way!
I had read a review that said do no wear flip-flops. I wore strappy Karrimor things, and these were not ideal (ankles still suffering!). Hiking boots needed or, at the very least, trainers!

An amazing wander amongst the spring fields in a rural location that sweeps down to a rocky walk that ends up at a spectacular cave.

Best place to park is the cemetery. The wall in is beautiful and picturesque. I didn’t see a single person on the hike at this time of year.

The walk is more than moderately challenging not in length but in the unevenness of the track and rocks, but well worth it.

The cave is simply stunning and has a wonderfully Erie feel to it. Something completely different in Menorca.

Very impressive. We went on a boiling hot day in August; the walk to the cave had a cooling breeze and the cave temp is lower than outside. We parked at the cemetery and had the car park to ourselves. Also no-one else in the cave. Worth a visit, especially with older kids that are bored of the beach.

You have to walk to see this cave. Please remember to bring a lot of water with you as this place has no facilities, it is a just a spectacular part of nature. It is situated between Es Migjorn Gran and Binigaus. We walked from the beach Binigaus and it took approximately 45 mins to get to the cave. It is a narrow path through the valley, under the shade of trees with stony steps up and down from time to time. There are some information boards about the different local plants and flowers on the path. It was very fascinating.
You need to wear appropriate shoes, definitely not flip flops. Unfortunately, there were not clear signs leading to the cave and we needed to ask other people about which way to go. There was no internet of course. However, we realised that we could use the GPS signal on our phones. It was very helpful.
The cave was impressive, huge. We were glad we found it. Definitely I recommend visiting.

Hike from S:t Thomas to Platja Binigaus. There you walk up in the valley that is also called Binigaus. You can make a circular tour from the beach.
The first cave you come to is Cova Polida. Here you need a flashlight. This is the most beautiful cave full of stalagmites and stalactites.
The second is more spectacular as it is huge. You do not need a flashlight here as it gets plenty of daylight due to its big entrance. It feels like a cathedral. A great place for a picnic!

Nice long walk through the hilly woods from the beach & ending in a well worth visit to the large cave

A very impressive rock cave found after a trek along a nature trail which is unmarked the majority of the way. I started the walk at a point along the beach from San Tomas. The trail started as being marked but after a short walk, nothing. My advice, follow the signs so far then take the path that keeps you in The Valley, eventually you will pick up some rough scratch directions on stones pointing the way. Should take about 20/25 mins to reach.

Wow what a great afternoon. The walk to the cave is a reasonable distance so make sure you wear proper shoes. The scenery was outstanding and there is a lot of nature to see. The cave itself has bats nesting in it and it very atmospheric.

From various sources, it seems people started settling in caves around the coast of Menorca in about 1600BC, which is around the date of the vulcano on Thera in Greece, so people could have been fleeing the area and moving west. This huge cave in the Barranc de Bini Gaus is signposted from the village, however there is an easier way via the turning off the main road to Santo Tomas marked towards the Talayot of Sant Augusto with some off track walking. Best to use a Google map to see where to leave the road.

Did quite a bit trekking on a recent trip to Menorca and whilst I certainly found caves I'm a bit unsure if it was THE caves, especially after looking at some other people's pics...I did come across an entrance that was locked up so perhaps it was closed for the season or something. but regardless I still enjoyed hiking through the remote wilderness, taking in the local flora, fauna and scenery. Take plenty of water with you!
