LUXURIATE IN OUR HOTEL IN MENORCA

Leisure and Culture

  • WHERE ARE THE BEST BEACHES IN MENORCA?
    • CALA PREGONDA

      Located in the north of the island, this heavenly corner of Menorca is in the middle of nowhere but highly recommended for visitors to the island owing to its incredible natural beauty. It has even starred on album covers and television adverts. Unless you arrive by sea (by one of the regular boat services), it will involve quite a walk, both on the way there and back. If you choose to make your way on foot, make sure you take plenty of drinking water with you.

    • CALA ESCORXADA

      This beach may not be as well known, because it requires an hour’s walk just to get there, but is a favourite fishing ground for charming local boats, sail boats and other small leisure yachts. It may not have the vast infrastructure and services you’ll find at bigger tourist beaches but, if you’re willing to brave the walk, the views and experience of total tranquillity in this paradise corner of the island more than make up for it.

    • CALA PRESILI

      With amazing rock formations and a great location next to an impressive lighthouse - that almost makes you feel like you’re on another planet - Faro de Favaritx, Cala Presili is a firm favourite in Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve, just next to Cala Tortuga. Access on foot is suitable for all visitors, although you can arrive at the beach by sea, sailboat or catamaran.

    • BINIGAUS

      With amazing rock formations and a great location next to an impressive lighthouse - that almost makes you feel like you’re on another planet - Faro de Favaritx, Cala Presili is a firm favourite in Albufera des Grau Nature Reserve, just next to Cala Tortuga. Access on foot is suitable for all visitors, although you can arrive at the beach by sea, sailboat or catamaran.

    • CALA MACARELLA

      One of the best known and most paradise-like beaches in the whole of Menorca, you may find this beach gets quite busy at certain times of year. This has led to the development of plenty of parking and a number of different services and infrastructure focussed on making a day at the beach here as easy and enjoyable as can be. In the summer months (between June and September), access is limited to tourist buses that make the direct journey from Ciutadella. Check the schedules and frequencies locally at your hotel.

    • Cala Macarelleta

      Considered the ‘little sister’ of Cala Macarella, this beach is also well-known and popular. Access is also restricted to buses travelling from Ciutadella during the summer months, although you can buy tickets online in advance. Smaller than its bigger sister, the beach offers fewer services (there’s no restaurant, for example), but these can all be found very close by, so you can let yourself be won over by the white sands and turquoise waters without a care in the world. If you don’t like crowds, it’s probably best to find another spot, as buses can arrive with up to 300 people per day.

    • Respect the natural beauty of the beaches and coves in Menorca by not leaving any rubbish behind after you leave.
    • Apply sun cream frequently if you’re planning on being directly exposed to the sun or spending any amount of time outdoors.
    • Check with hotel staff for the opening hours of monuments and other points of interest, as well as transport information and details of organised excursions. Save yourself the time and effort in finding out yourself!
    • Don’t rent or use any boats - regardless of their size - if you don’t have any basic training or knowledge of navigation.
    • Check with restaurant staff about ingredients in meals, especially if you have any allergies, intolerances or dietary requirements.
    • If you’re planning on enjoying any long walks or hikes during your stay, be sure to wear appropriate footwear and take plenty of water.
    • If you decide to rent a vehicle, make sure you know the rules of the road and the signs that appear in Spain.
    • Always keep an eye on your belongings, especially on beaches and coves that are popular with tourists.
    • Never go into the sea to swim or take part in any water sports if you’re under the influence of excessive amounts of alcohol.
    • Keep your passport and other important items in a safe place when you’re not using them. You can always ask your hotel staff for help.
    • If you decide to give nude sunbathing a try, make sure the beach you’re using allows this.
  • WHAT ARE THE BEST EXCURSIONS IN MENORCA?

    The sea is the indisputable star of the show (although certainly not the only one) in many of the organised activities and excursions you can enjoy in Menorca. Along with the ideal conditions of the Mediterranean, especially during the summer period, the island becomes the perfect ‘playground’ for visitors who want to explore the ocean waves.

    • BOAT TRIPS

      There are many options for visiting the island’s great beaches and coves, both to the north and south, along with routes along the Menorcan coast by catamaran, sailboat and smaller yachts, without the need for a licence. Although you can rent boats for your own personal use, we recommend you go for an organised tour. That way, you’ll be safely in the hands of professionals who know the island and every corner of it like the back of their hand.

    • KAYAKING AND SNORKELLING

      Menorca has some spectacular reserves of marine flora and fauna. If you’re not afraid to be active and prefer to be more hands on with your experiences, you can always swap traditional boat tours for your very own kayak. Furthermore, you can get up close and personal with the rich seabed with a spot of snorkelling, something enjoyable for both adults and children alike.

    • FISHING EXPERIENCES

      Why not become a fisherman for the day and embark on an adventure to find that catch of the day? This won’t just help you enjoy all the beauty of the sea, but also the great coves and stunning Menorcan coastline. You’ll be able to enjoy a first-hand experience with fishermen who will share all their wisdom and passion for what has been the main source of income for their families on the island for generations.

  • WHERE TO HAVE FUN IN MENORCA?

    Although the general feeling that dominates the island is one of calm and tranquillity, there’s certainly no shortage of ways to occupy your time and have fun during your stay. In addition to the great beaches and coves, you’ll also be able to discover some great terraces, nightclubs and cocktail bars, or perhaps even head out on a bike ride to explore.

    • ENJOYING THE NIGHTLIFE

      Although it’s nothing like the wild and wondrous nightlife you’ll find in the other Balearic Islands, like Ibiza, Menorca certainly has plenty up its sleeves for restless night owls. You can drink and dance until dawn in any one of the island’s great nightclubs in the main towns, particularly Ciutadella and Mahon. But if you’re up for venturing off the beaten track a little, getting away from the typical tourist traps, look out for Cueva d’en Xoroi, well worth a try.

    • BIKE TRAILS

      If you’re up for some sports and leisure activities, you won’t want to miss a cycling tour across Menorca. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t able to bring your own bike, they can be easily rented in your resort. The island offers easy terrain on the whole with little distance between all the main points of interest. Once you’re there, the views are spectacular wherever you go on your journey.

    • LOCAL FESTIVALS

      Between the months of June and September, all the biggest towns and villages on the island celebrate their patron saint festivals. Each has its own unique calendar of events, programme of activities and some amazing attractions for the whole family. Some celebrations take on a more religious character, while others have their roots in typical Menorcan culture. Staff in your hotel can advise on the best festivals taking place during your stay and how to get there, and you can always pick up a programme of events to check for yourself. Sant Joan Festival in Ciutadella is highly recommended.

  • WHAT TO EAT IN MENORCA?

    Like all island food cultures, the star of any menu in Menorca - without a doubt - is the sea and everything it offers up. However, there are plenty of other highlights you can enjoy that will catch your eye and can only be found in Menorca.

    • LOBSTER STEW

      One of the most distinctive dishes in all of Menorca’s gastronomy scene, you may also find this famous stew in other parts of the Balearic Islands. For a very long time, it was one of the basic meals for fishermen and the humbler classes on the island, although it has now become a delicacy for even the most refined palates.

    • WINE AND CHEESE TASTINGS

      Menorcans are especially proud of their sausages and cheeses, which have a label of excellence certifying their specific area of origin. Tasting some of these great local products, all washed down with some of the world-class wines Menorca produces, is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon or evening and will leave you feeling very much like royalty

    • LA POMADA

      Pomada isn’t a food, but an especially refreshing drink! It’s also a major part of the Menorcan identity. Throughout the eighteenth century, the island was under the rule of the British Empire, and enjoying gin gradually became part of the local culture. Since the early twentieth century, however, this particular gin has only been produced on the island, which is combined with natural local lemon juices and served ice cold. Delicious!

  • WHAT ARE THE BEST THINGS TO DO IN MENORCA?
    • PADEL (RACKET SPORT)

      Menorca is one of the official venues for the World Padel Tournament taking place between 2019 and 2022, which this year takes place in October. As a result, the island has a number of courts that are perfectly equipped for pros and novices alike, so as long as your trip doesn’t clash with tournament dates, you’ll be able to take full advantage of all these world-class sports facilities.

    • HIKING

      One of Menorca’s chief selling points has to be its great views and amazing vantage points, along with its rich and diverse landscapes. There are several hiking trails to enjoy inland, where you’ll be able to discover a range of hidden treasures, visit some charming villages and get even closer to nature. We suggest you check with your local hotel staff to find the best routes for your level of physical fitness and experience.

    • SCUBA-DIVING

      The diversity and biological richness of the seabed surrounding Menorca is just too great to be missed. The best way to see what’s on offer is to try your hand at some scuba-diving to truly be at one with the Mediterranean. If you have a licence and enough experience, you can rent all the equipment you need on the island. But, if you’ve never even thought of trying diving before, there are plenty of great classes to cover all the basics and give you a great introduction to life beneath the sea...

    • CIUTADELLA OLD TOWN

      If you decide to explore a little of what the rest of the island has to offer, a stop in Ciutadella (or Ciudadela), the historic centre of Menorca, is well worth your time. Throughout history, this fortified part of the island has been occupied and used by the Romans, the French and the British respectively. With various buildings of immense historical character, you’ll also find a beautiful promenade and a neoclassical cathedral. It’s worth devoting an entire day to discovering what’s hidden around every corner here, or even more than a day...

    • RURAL LIFE. BINISSUÈS

      The Menorcan people are zealous defenders of their ancient cultures and traditions. In Binissuès, you’ll find a museum dedicated solely to Menorcan socio-cultural heritage, its traditions and customs, as well as some of the most interesting ways of life in the countryside. Local actors, performing in period costumes and even alongside some animal friends that have traditionally been used in rural work and life, put on live demonstrations of ploughing the fields, sewing seeds, milking and traditional cheese-making practices. Plenty of fun for the whole family.

    • ISLA DEL REY

      In the port of Mahon, there’s a separate island just down river that’s home to a rather curious-looking building... the beautiful Isla del Rey and its famous hospital! Famous because it was the second most important in the world during the eighteenth century. Visitors should remember that the port of Mahon was a mandatory stopping point for the great maritime empires of the day and this particular building was hugely important as a result. Although the building was abandoned long ago, it is currently being renovated and is well worth a visit. On Isla del Rey, you’ll also find the remains of a Paleo-Christian basilica from the sixth century.
