Discover island life in Menorca with these special offers

Mahon, Menorca
Mahon, Menorca

LOOKING for absolute relaxation? Perhaps Menorca will hit the spot.

The peaceful island of Menorca offers up a low-key, chilled vibe, picturesque harbours, pretty villages and is a real safe haven for families with young children.

Its dazzling, sun-kissed beaches are sublime and just waiting to be played on!

Menorca has more stretches of sand than you can shake your bucket and spade at and visitors can soak up the sun in secluded coves and unspoilt beaches.  Many of them have Blue Flag status, owing to their safety and cleanliness.

This tranquil Mediterranean delight is just perfect for discerning holidaymakers who don’t want to party into the wee small hours.

Menorca’s just not like that and I suspect it’s quite happy to stay that way.  This beautiful island is definitely the quieter of the Balearics and perfect for those seeking a more laid back, tranquil option yet with plenty of optional activities and a decent choice of bars and restaurants to watch the sun go down from.


Find your ideal holiday!


Menorca is relatively small and if you hire a car, you could discover so much about the island as well as seeing much more than the view from your hotel balcony!

Don’t miss a day trip to Mahon, Menorca’s delightful capital and its colourful past, or the elegant old town of Cuitadella.

This quaint spot has an intriguing history but also boasts a magnificent Gothic Cathedral. The heart of the town is the picturesque quayside lined with impressive seafood restaurants, and elsewhere, you’ll find old forts, museums, elegant boutiques and quirky shops.

Inland, there’s beautiful rolling countryside with pretty little hamlets dotted around where everything grinds to a halt come siesta time. Sound good so far?

Wondering where to stay on Menorca? Here are some of the island’s top resorts that you can make your base for your holiday:

Top resorts in Menorca

Punta Prima

Punta Prima on Menorca’s southwest coast is one of the oldest holiday towns on the island. Despite its popularity, it has lost none of its traditional charm. Its beaches have Blue Flag status and the resort  is very family friendly. It’s a small, laid back resort with just enough going on to entertain its visitors.

 

Cala Galdana

One of the most picturesque resorts on the island of Menorca. Shallow, turquoise waters and soft white sands are the focal points of this pretty cove. A popular resort that continues to attract visitors year after year.

Santo Tomas

This laid-back town on the south coast of Menorca offers a modest choice of bars and restaurants. The town may be compact but the stretch of beach is impressive at 3 km long. Entertainment in the resort is pretty low key but the island’s capital; Mahon is less than an hour away.

Fornells, Menorca, Spain

A pretty whitewashed fishing village in the north of Menorca. Fornells Bay boasts a fine beach and a picturesque harbor, offering activities and excursions. Fornells is also a great spot to enjoy seafood dining by the waterfront.

 

Calan Forcat, Menorca, Spain

A fairly busy, popular resort on the island of Menorca with a host of shops, bars, restaurants and a water park.  Within a short drive of Ciutadella, it combines fun in the sun with more historical and cultural interests. Widely considered the busiest resort on the island but still charming and suitable for visitors of all ages.
