Holidays in Menorca

Menorca Holidays

Menorca is a popular British holiday destination  and especially for families with young children. This is probably because of the relatively short and frequent flying times from the UK (see our flights page) and the fabulous warm (but not too hot) weather. (See our weather page).

For the locations of the beaches and resorts, see our BIG map of Menorca....

Added to this, Menorca has some stunning beaches, perfect for sandcastles and safe swimming  (Such as Cala en Porter, Cala en Blanes, Arenal d'en Castell, Punta Prima). Others also have a wide range of shops, supermarkets, pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants and activities on site (such as Son Bou, Cala en Forcat, Arenal d en Castell, Cala en Porter, Santo Tomas, San Jaime, Cala Galdana, Cala n Bosch).

Cala'n Bosch

In all of these resorts, the main nationality on holiday here was the British.  So if your little ones are picky eaters, you can be sure that the restaurants and supermarkets here have everything they are used to, back home (although the prices may be considerably higher...). Not only that, but you needn’t miss that vital episode of your favourite programme or important football match. Many bars in the busier resorts will show these too. And don’t worry if that’s your idea of how NOT to have a holiday: there are plenty of quieter, less developed resorts too. ( Try Des Grau, Cala Morell, Sa Caleta, Cala Santandria, Cala de Binisafuller, Cala Binibeca, Cala Mesquida, Cala Torret, Cales Fonts.)

Waterpark - Menorca Aqua park

Majorca and Ibiza are neighbours of Menorca, but unlike Menorca they also cater for the clubbing scene. Here, in Menorca we found little evidence of night clubs. In fact, we were there in peak season and discovered that most restaurants and bars shut relatively early in the evening. So if it’s an all-night party scene you’re after, this probably is NOT the place for you!
