Menorca

Perfect laid-back beach resorts for families and couples

Menorca is the second largest Baleraric Island and offers a diverse culture due to its changes of fortune over the years. The local people are extremely friendly and the luxury beach resorts are perfect for families and couples. Pristine beaches, family friendly hotels, four and five star resorts and private villas with pools are all readily available.

Cala’n Bosch has a horseshoe shaped bay and a charming marina where you’ll find a great selection of restaurants and bars. It’s just the ticket for those that like to enjoy sand and sea by day but have something available on the nightlife front too. You’re also well placed to get to Menorca’s Aquarock waterpark with its pools and fun waterslides which will keep all the family happy.

Take a visit to the capital Mahon and eat in one of the stunning roof top restaurants before heading into the narrow streets which are filled with small boutique style shops. Down at the port there are an excellent selection of boat trips you can take to visit local historical sites and spectacular coves.

Santo Thomas lies on the southern coast and has two fantastic beaches plus lots of hiking, walking and cycling routes. It’s a quieter resort than most but it’s easy to travel along the coast to Son Bou if you fancy a change of pace one night.

Throughout the island’s coastline, you’ll find beaches that are simply amazing with crystal clear water that you will never tire of during your luxury holiday in Menorca. Notable beaches include Cala Pregonda, Cala Galdana, Cala Macarelleta and Playa de Son Bou. Water sports facilities are better at the key resorts than the more remote and less accessible beaches.

There are plenty of other resorts that we’d be pleased to give you more information on, including Cala Galdana, Son Bou, Arenal Den Castell and Cala n Forcat.
