Villas in Menorca

Menorca is the most family-oriented, picturesque and tranquil of the Balearic Islands. Beaches on the island are glorious - from spectacular, silver-sanded, gently curving bays to rocky inlets with pine tree settings. Larger, low-rise resorts can be found on the pretty south coast, while, in between, its green and hilly rural interior remains largely untouched. A sprinkling of beautiful buildings, attractive villages and mysterious prehistoric sites all combine to make Menorca simply sparkle with calm and charm.

Menorca - An idyllic island beauty

Despite a reputation as a holiday destination of choice, Menorca is delightfully low key. Its beaches and ‘calas’ are its pride and joy. Our Menorca villas can be found all over, particularly on the popular south coast, but the island is small enough that exploration is easy and utterly worthwhile.

  • Menorca Attractions

    Watersports, sailing, yachting, golf and tennis – there’s plenty of activities for your Menorca holiday. Scuba diving centres can be found in the main resorts, while horse riding ranches are also located in the larger, town areas.

    If you want to escape from sunbathing on the beach, the island has an array of natural caves on the south coast near Cala en Porter. From the larger resorts, you can take a boat trip and explore the island by sea, while those interested in nature can visit the wildlife reserves found in the wetlands.

  • Menorca Beaches

    Menorca has beach resorts for all the family - some crowded for those who like it busy, and some off the beaten track for peace and tranquillity.

    Undoubtedly the island’s biggest attraction, there are over 100 beaches to choose from. Some of the most popular and developed beaches are found on the southern coastline. Many have shallow waters and gently sloping sands which are ideal for children. While in the north, you’re more likely to stumble across picturesque horseshoe bays, coastal views and rugged, beautiful scenery.

  • Menorca History

    With strong British links dating back to the times of Nelson, Menorca’s wealth of archaeological remains and ancient sites will delight lovers of history.

    Alongside a gothic church, maze and fortress, traces of the island’s colourful past and original inhabitants can be found everywhere. Monuments, Neolithic towns, prehistoric remains and megalithic ruins are in abundance - most of which have been left undisturbed. Bronze Age stone towers and ‘taulas’ - huge stone tablets placed in the shape of a T – are also a unique feature of the area.

  • Menorca Shopping

    Arguably the best buy in Menorca is leather goods - from footwear, in particular locally manufactured sandals known as 'Abarcas', to bags and jackets. Jewellery is a Menorcan speciality, alongside locally produced pottery and cheeses made in the Quesos Coinga factory. Small, local markets sell traditional arts and crafts, as well as fresh produce.

    In Mahon, Menorca’s pretty harbourside capital, you can see the famous 18th-Century Xoriguer Gin Distillery and its enormous copper stills in action before sampling the 100 different types of gin on offer.

  • Menorca Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Take a boat trip round the world’s second deepest natural harbour at Maó (Mahon) – to get the best views of the cliff-top houses and learn about its fascinating history.

    • Take a carajillo (coffee with brandy) and a selection of tapas in Plaça des Born, Ciutadella, one of the finest city squares anywhere in Spain.

    • Cool off at a water park – you’ll find them in Cala en Bosch and Cala Blanes.

    • Explore the island’s history – the talaiots, taules and navetes. The Naveta des Tudons, close to Ciutadella is the best preserved of the navetas – boat-shaped, Bronze Age burial chambers.

    • Experience a fiesta, whether its jousting in June in Ciutadella or giants, gin and dancing horses in Maó in September.

    • Choose your own catch of the day and sample the fresh lobster in the fishing village of Fornells.

Caerphilly Family (the eldest child is at school)

Lovely quiet resort. Villa in residential area and only a few minutes walk to a supermarket, and Santandria beach a few more minutes further. Lovely island, not as overly busy or commercialised as a lot of Majorca is.
A good 15min+ walk to main Cala Blanca resort which is hard going in the heat and could be tough for elderly and those with younger children.

Beaches were lovely and clean and swimming with fish in beautiful water fantastic. Close to amenities and restaurants brilliant with good choice for children. Weather perfect.
Would have been nice to have tea bags, milk, sugar, biscuits and some bottled water on arrival. Also a nice touch would be to have hand wash in at least one of the toilets.
