Don't miss the festivities

With its many relaxing villages and lively towns, beautiful and luscious landscapes, cool blue coasts, beach resorts and fantastic restaurants, Menorca opens its heart to all who visit.

Even though thousands take last minute family holidays to Menorca every year, the island has kept its culture intact. In fact, many visitors come for this very reason. For instance, the island’s summer fiestas are a must-see.

The ‘Festes de Sant Joan’, celebrations happen in June every year and last for three days. A sight to behold, main streets are closed to play host to parades of black horses, men carrying sheep and jousting competitions, as well as bonfires and fireworks displays in the evenings.

Resorts

S'Algar

Situated on the south easterly side of Menorca, S'Algar is peaceful destination set in two rocky coves. It's walkable distance to the nearest beach at neighbouring Punta Prima and just a few miles from the Island's capital city of Mahon, making it the ideal location from which to base package holidays to Menorca.

Alcaufar

Alcaufar's rocky cove and shallow bay are easy to miss among the popular resorts nearby, and the locals and in-the-know visitors wouldn't have it any other way. Located on Menorca's southeastern coast, this hidden gem is no more than a stretch of shore with a small marina lined with whitewashed buildings and a few boats bobbing on the water.

Arenal Den Castell

Arenal d'en Castell has a picturesque horseshoe beach lined with rugged cliffsides and greenery, and dotted with whitewashed houses. It's one of the most popular resorts for Menorca holidays, but there's plenty of room for everyone on this long, sweeping coastline.

Binibeca

Among Menorca's bustling cities, popular waterparks and bar-laden resorts, Binibeca strays from the crowd as the island's quiet, hidden gem. Tucked away on the southeast coast, it's a sleepy fishing village that knows how to bring that extra element of relaxation to cheap holidays in Menorca.

Cala Blanca

Tucked away on Menorca's west coast is the little seaside town of Cala Blanca, famous for its incredible sunsets and abundance of places to enjoy them.

Cala Canutells

Cala Canutells is one of the quietest and sleepiest Menorca holiday resorts. It still operates as a fishing village, and lives by the Spanish way of life. Cala Canutells is anything but touristy so if you're looking for a complete getaway from your regular hectic life, cosy Cala Canutells is the place for you. This area is best for couples and older holiday makers as, beyond the beach, there is little to keep children entertained.

Cala Galdana

The small but popular resort of Cala Galdana is encircled by miles of luscious green forest. With stunningly clear waters and striking landscapes, it's no wonder that flocks of tourists choose to plan their package holidays to Menorca at this modest resort. Cala Galdana's nickname is 'the Queen of the Calas' and one visit here will be enough to convince you.

Cala'n Blanes

Low hanging trees frame Cala'n Blanes cove, making it one of the most idyllic destinations for Menorca holidays. It's teamed with Cala'n Forcat and Los Delfines so you'll get three resorts for the price of one. Plus it's a stone's throw from the cosmopolitan city of Ciutadella.

The rocky and photogenic cove has a patch of sand with shallow water that stretches for a long distance. The main draw here is snorkelling in the clear sea but if you want sandcastle time on your Menorca holiday, the bigger beach at nearby Cala'n Blanes delivers bucketfuls.

Ciutadella

On the western coast of this beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea, sits Ciutadella. This ancient marvel is a must-see if enjoying a family holiday to Menorca. As you follow history's wandering journey past bustling markets, stylish bars and bobbing yachts, you'll be romanced by the sights and sounds of the fine Spanish citadel of Ciutadella.

Es Castell

Es Castell's vibrant harbours showcase British military history, waterfront restaurants and shops tucked in caves. The town still has a distinctly laid-back, coastal feel, with the sea almost always in sight. Days here are filled with exploring former fortresses and strolling along the harbour in the sunshine, sampling Spanish seafood and sipping cocktails on the waterfront - the perfect way to enjoy a family holiday to Menorca.

Playa De Fornells

The quiet resort of Playa de Fornells is a haven for relaxation and tranquillity during family holidays to Menorca. Breaks here revolve around soaking up the sun on the horseshoe-shaped bay and discovering the incredible natural beauty of the countryside and coastline.

Punta Prima

White beaches and clear waters flow from cliff to cliff in quiet Punta Prima. The resort is just 15-minutes' drive from Menorca airport, meaning you can start to relax in no time. However, its secluded silence makes it feel much further away. Walkers who stroll between the bays during their Menorca holiday regularly visit Punta Prima to sample the scenic routes around the resort.

Santo Tomas

Son Bou

Surrounded by luscious green woods and serene wilderness, the resort of Son Bou will help you relax in no time on a family holiday to Menorca.

An island as old as time

Megalithic stone monuments are scattered around the island as evidence of humanity’s early activity on the island – long before package holidays to Menorca came into existence! These impressive historical structures are thousands of years old and make for the perfect hiking holiday for any keen explorer or historian.

However, if it’s hot sand and refreshing sea you’re after then you’ll find unspoilt and beautiful beaches which you can have almost to yourself. Many of these are complete with coastal ridges which can be walked until you find the beach that is right for you.

The entire island is encircled by an ancient path called the Cami de Cavalls, stretching for 186 kilometres around Menorca’s coast. Meaning ‘Way of the Horses’, you can traverse it on horseback, bike or just with your own two feet and take in the incredible coastal views.

Take a dip

If taking a dip isn’t far enough into the waters, then it’s easy to find a way out further onto the high seas. Hire a boat and see the island from the outside, stopping at isolated beaches only accessible by sea for a picnic before heading back out again to swim. With dozens of opportunities to dive, kayak, or sail, Menorca has become a top destination for exciting activities both on land and at sea.

Go to town in Menorca

The island’s towns of Ciutadella and Mahon are beautiful, especially in the spring when blossom begins to grow. Ciutadella, in the west, has a fortified harbour glistening in the sun, and the capital Mahon, to the east, has rows of tiled rooftops. Both are perfect places to visit for the day or night and are well-connected by public transport with nearby resorts and hotels.

A great range of bars, restaurants and shops make these towns lively and vibrant locations for visitors to the island who wish to experience the local culture and meet fellow travellers.

A gin and tonic to cool down

Menorca is famous for its taste for gin, something it inherited from the Brits. Locals mix their gin with bitter lemon to make the much loved drink ‘pomada’, the most refreshing way to cool yourself down on the beach or by the pool after a long day out on the island.

After almost a century, Menorca is now once again becoming known for its wine production too. Make sure you enjoy a glass from one of the local wineries which are popping up around the island, or a carafe over a plate of shellfish at one of the great seafood restaurants.

So much of the food served on Menorca is grown, reared or caught on the island, making it truly genuine Mediterranean cuisine. Cheap holidays in Menorca area all about eating where the locals eat. You can trust that even if you order out of your comfort zone, you’ll be treated to outstanding flavours from chefs who source all their ingredients organically from nearby.

Beautiful and genuine, all year round

Menorca’s climate means that over winter a lot of places are closed. However, as spring begins in March, everything begins to heat up again. For cheap Menorca holidays, go early in the year and you can avoid peak season prices. Also, the climate will be mild enough to cycle around the island enjoying the sights and smells of the landscape, and you’ll still be able to lie on the beach and enjoy the sun.

Of course, if you’re after a fully-fledged summer holiday, then between mid-July and mid-September is the time to catch all the rays you can before the kids go back to school. Even at the busiest times of the year, the island somehow still manages to have that special something. Menorca is a one-of-a-kind destination, which offers great food, drink, country walks, seaside breaks, activities and nightlife all in one authentic island experience.
