The beautiful island of Menorca has always been a favourite holiday destination amongst holidaymakers especially those who love to bathe in stunning blue waters or sun worship on the fabulous sandy beaches. Of course, the sea and sand are not the only attractions of the island, as it is steeped in rich history and many people are drawn to Menorca each year to simply take in the ancient monuments and check out the mysterious caves.
There are all manner of places to stay, so whether you prefer a quite location with a laid back atmosphere, a family fun packed resort or simply somewhere to get your head down at night while you are out exploring all day, you are sure to find something just perfect for your needs.
The south of the island is where you will discover most of the traditional resorts, for example, Cala en Porter and Cala ‘n Forcat where there are superb beaches, many shops and numerous restaurants for you to choose from. If you are staying at Cala ‘n Forcat you really should not miss the water park – a great day out for all of the family.
Following along the south coast there are several quieter resorts where many people enjoy staying because of their close proximity to the airport, making for an extremely short transfer time and although it is not the longest flight you will ever go on, everyone is keen to start enjoying their holiday as soon as they get there.
The scenery is beautiful along this stretch with sandy white bays and coves and the beaches in general on this island are reasonably undeveloped in comparison with the larger sister island of Mallorca. The classic village fishing village of Binbeca Vell boasts some fine examples of architecture along with the white painted houses stranding proud against the blue sky.
In complete comparison to many of the small beaches, positioned around half way along the south eastern coast is Son Bou beach which goes on for almost two miles and this is an ideal spot for a livelier holiday.
The extreme south western coast of the island offers us the resort of Cala ‘n Bosch which is a new resort placed conveniently adjacent to the rather more developed area of Cala Blanca. Cala ‘n Bosch is popular with British holiday makers and has many apartments, private villas and a couple of decent sized hotels.
One of the most popular places in the North of Menorca is Fornells Bay, a popular and unspoilt fishing village with a great selection of eateries on the harbour where you can pass a few hours with a glass of beer or wine relaxing in a street bar or café.
Accommodation ranges from self catering studio apartments to luxury five star hotels offering full or all inclusive board and most of these are available in any of the resorts mentioned in the Menorca beaches section of this website.
