Self Catering villas and apartments can be a cheap alternative but there are also purpose built resorts around the island with affordable All Inclusive options. From the older resorts of Punta Prima to the more modern resorts of Calan Bosch and Calan Forcat, there’ll certainly be a deal to suit you. 

The beach life here is definitely one to experience, but it’s not the only thing to discover on your holiday. Many regard Menorca as the most authentic of Spain’s Balearic Islands and our selection of holidays will show you why. 

Luckily in Menorca, you get quantity and quality when it comes to beaches. You may not have time to see all of them but there are some you won’t want to miss. Cala Turqueta is one of the most famous beaches and with its white sandy shoreline and untouched feel, it’s no wonder. Located about 10km south of the city of Ciudadela, there are no facilities on the beach so bring your own food and drink. For a more family friendly beach, Son Bou is one of the longest on the island and has plenty of facilities.

 

With so many beaches, it’s no surprise there are massive amounts of water sports available. If you want a bit more of a relaxing time, bring goggles and take advantage of the clear water or go on one of the many fishing trips available

For fun on land, you can golf and cycle in stunning surroundings. Menorca’s flat countryside means all levels of cyclists can enjoy a bike ride.

The Cami de Cavalls is a route to take on foot, bike or horse and will have you discovering the most hidden parts of the coast. If you like walking, hike to the top of Monte Toro, where you’ll find the Sanctuary of the Virgin of El Toro and full views of the island.

Former capital Ciudadela and current capital Mahón are both steeped in history and give you a chance to change out of the swimming gear for a day. In Ciudadela, admire the architecture in one of Spain’s best squares, the Placa des Born. Mahón’s harbour is lovely in its own right, but located just off of it is the area of La Mola where you can take a guided tour through the Fortress of La Mola.

By bus: Buses are an extremely cheap option. 

By boat: The ports at Mahón and Ciudadela are accessible via ferry from mainland Spain, and Mahón also provides its own water taxi service.
