From wandering around the sun drenched marina and chilling in local bars to mooching through the old streets of Ciutadella, you’ll be struggling to keep still on your holiday here. Even if you just take the one day out from the beach, you’ll find there is an endless list of activities to entertain you.
Menorca is joined together with an ancient footpath that encircles the whole of the island and offers walkers and bike riders some great hikes and trails with beautiful views. For a lovely coastal walk, go east from Son Xoriguer beach all the way to the coved beach of Son Saura. These aren’t always the most accessible, so it’s recommended you research before you travel.
Food in Menorca has many inspirations thanks to the various different cultures that have called the Balearic Islands home. Dishes such as Caldereta de Langosta (lobster stew), Mejillones a la Plancha (barbecued mussels with garlic, lemon and parsley) and delicious tapas are served in the restaurants and bars that are scattered over the marina in Cala’n Bosch, and make a great place for a long, hazy dinner watching the sun go down.
You don’t have to be travelling with children to fancy a day out getting wet ’n’ wild at Aquarock water park in Cala’n Bosch . With rides names ‘Kamikaze’ and ‘Black Hole’, a wave pool, fun and safe kids play pool and relaxing Jacuzzi, as well as go karts and trampolines, this’ll be a real treat for the whole family. If the kids really need to blow off a little steam, head over to Goody Goody park near the marina for bumper boats, trampolines, bowling, crazy golf and a little shallow pool with a slide. It’s nice and safe for them to play whilst you soak up in the sun in the cafe.

History: The town of Ciutadella is about twenty minutes away. It’s been standing for centuries and has seen some pretty epic history.

Fiesta de Sant Joan: Rooted in medieval heritage, this festival is a spectacle that you won’t want to miss in the summer months, especially if you’re keen to learn as much of the history of the Balearic Islands as possible. A highlight of the fiesta is the procession of 100 Menorcan pure breed horses through the town, and locals attempting to touch the horses’ hearts as they jump into the air. This event attracts attention from the world’s media and can be very busy so be sure to head down early to secure a good spot for watching the horses. The entire fiesta ends with a firework finale in the centre of the town and dancing until the small hours.
Markets: There are several markets throughout the island and they’re great for picking up all manner of souvenirs, gifts and mementos from your trip. Head over to Ciutadella on a Saturday for its weekly market at the Plaza del Mercat, and pick up delicious fresh fruit and vegetables as well as handmade Menorcan goods. In the summer months, there’s an evening market at Carrer de Pere Capllonc near the harbour. This stays open until midnight and has a really lovely, relaxed vibe to it.
Sant Martí Festival in Es Mercadal: Another festival celebrating the beautiful Menorca breeds, this festival in Es Mercadal in the centre of Menorca and approximately half an hour from Cala’n Bosch. If you’re interested in cultural heritage, it’s a cultural event well worth catching. Taking place on the third Saturday in July, a procession of riders dressed in medieval costumes parade through the town and gather together in the centre where the horses then perform to traditional Menorcan folk music. Followed by church services and a street party, this is a lively and colourful event.
