Menorca, your questions answered

What is the most beautiful part of Menorca?

There are many beautiful parts of Menorca however, our favourite has to be the picturesque bay of Cala Galdana. The bay features a captivating horseshoe shape, which means it curves like a big, open arm reaching out to the sea. This unique shape creates a sheltered and calm environment, making the bay a perfect destination for both relaxation and water activities.
The star attraction of Cala Galdana Bay is its pristine sandy beach. The soft, golden sands stretch out like a cozy blanket, inviting visitors to bask in the sun, play beach games, or build sandcastles with friends and family. With its gradual slope into the crystal-clear turquoise waters, the bay offers safe and inviting swimming conditions for all ages.

 Villa Anni and Villa Isa are walking distance to the beach.

Which are the best child friendly beaches in Menorca?

Nestled amidst dramatic cliffs on the southeast coast of Menorca, Cala en Porter beach is a picture of Mediterranean paradise. Cala en Porter is no secret, but its size and the protection offered by the cliffs ensure it never feels overcrowded. Families frolic in the shallows, building sandcastles and splashing with glee.
Everyone can their hand at stand-up paddleboarding or diving into the refreshing depths. Volleyball nets invite friendly matches on the soft sand, while sun loungers and parasols offer a shady retreat from the midday sun. And when hunger strikes, charming beachside cafes tempt with delicious tapas, paella, and fresh seafood.

Villa Ines is positioned only 800 metres away. Villa Dulcesol is only 900 metres up the road from this bay.

Where is the quietest resort in Menorca?

San Tomeu is a countryside quiet, slightly inland area of Menorca on the South East coast. Local tavernas and cafes prioritise ambiance and authentic cuisine over rowdy bars and clubs. The nightlife is imited to a few relaxed terraces and quiet bars, perfect for unwinding after a day of exploration.
Sant Tomeu offers a genuine Menorcan experience, characterised by a slow pace of life, friendly locals, and a focus on nature and relaxation.

Villa Las Rocas is situated here.

Where is the nightlife of Menorca?

Mahon the capital city has a vibrant evening of events and cocktail bars.
Whether you’re a jazz aficionado, a cocktail connoisseur, or a dance floor devotee, Mahon has something for everyone. Cosy tavernas serving tapas and local “vermut” offer a taste of tradition, while sleek cocktail bars like Sa Falua tempt with their artistic concoctions. Live music venues thrum with the energy of local bands, and open-air terraces soak up the cool harbour breeze. And for the late-night owls, CIAO PORT DE MAO keeps the beat pumping with electronic tunes and energetic vibes.

Villa Las Rocas is only a 15 minute drive from here or Villa Ines is just an easy drive of 20 minutes to get to the Capital.

Where are the traditional markets in Menorca?

Menorca’s markets aren’t just shopping destinations; they’re vibrant snapshots of the island’s soul, bustling with local character and bursting with fresh flavours. While major towns like Ciutadella and Maó hold the crown jewels, smaller villages like Punta Prima, Mahon, and Cala en Porter offer unique market experiences with their own charm and local flair.

Cala en Porter:

Day: No regular market day. However, several pop-up craft markets and stalls offering local produce appear throughout the summer season, especially near the main square and beach.
Cala en Porter’s market scene is all about spontaneity and discovery.
