If you are coming to Menorca then a visit to El Torro is a must. Fantastic views from the top and a lovely peaceful Church to see, its very nice and serene. Road up is winedy but nothing to worry about; good to cycle.

Worth a trip out in the hire car, even if it's on the one cloudy day of the holiday! A winding ascending road takes you to the top of Monte Toro where there are car and coach parks, the church and a hop and restaurant....More

Although the drive up had a few steep and bendy section, it was worth it when we got to the top. The views are great - you can see the sea on both sides of the island. There is a small chapel with a beautiful...More

I'm afraid not. You can access it by car or bicycle, but I don't think you can walk up that road to the peak of the mountain. Apologies, hope this helps!
