Overview of Menorca

If you want that island vibe, consider Menorca for your next getaway. Brimming with Balearic Island charm, this enticing holiday destination is blessed with caramel sands, impossibly blue seas and resorts and towns dotted across its scenic landscapes. The south-east coast of Menorca is perfect for lay-back-on-your-lounger escapism, with Punta Prima, where you can stay at Occidental Menorca, a real holiday classic. If you’re after Blue Flag beaches, lazy days and the odd day trip, holidays to Menorca will definitely tick those boxes and a few more besides.

Things to do in Punta Prima

With Menorca airport just a 15-minute drive from Punta Prima, this is the perfect place for a fly-and-flop break. The Occidental Menorca is just 300 metres from Punta Prima Beach and 25km from Son Park Golf Course if you fancy a round or two. Relaxation is very much the dish of the day in Punta Prima, so expect lazy beach days, leisurely tapas lunches and low-key evenings watching the sun-set from bar terraces. If you do want to see some sights, the culture-packed capital of Mahon is a manageable 20-minute drive or taxi ride away. For chilled out Menorcan breaks, it doesn’t get much better than Punta Prima.

Resort Summary

This south-easterly spot on the island has countless opportunities to take a dip or a stroll and is well-loved by families due to the range of child-friendly activities. You can whizz down slides at the SplashWorld waterpark – part of one of the resort’s hotels but open to all.

The restaurants and bars that line the seafront, each serve up their own combination of traditional Spanish or international fusion food and drink. They are the perfect places to watch an amazing sunset from each evening.
