Holiday Villas In Menorca

Menorca (or Minorca as it’s also known) has a number of beaches, in fact, it has more than the rest of the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Mallorca combined. Menorca also has a much more relaxed, lower-key atmosphere than its larger neighbour, Majorca. It’s an ideal choice for a Family holiday as it’s only a couple of hours’ flight time from the UK. There are no long stretches of coastal road on Menorca and because it’s a UNESCO biosphere reserve, it’s escaped the sprawling high-rise coastal developments you can see elsewhere in the Mediterranean. About 6 km from the airport is the capital, Mahon (Mao), and any point on the island of Menorca is accessible by car within an hour at most.


There’s a wide choice of intimate hotels and villas set in a landscape typified by red sandstone and rugged cliffs overlooking secluded coves and sedate waters. Lush green countryside is full of olive groves and orchards, while narrow cobbled streets tumble down to quaint fishing harbours. Holiday Villa on the island cater for all tastes and budgets. All you have to do is choose a resort that suits you best. Arenal D’en Castell, a horseshoe-shaped bay, offers fabulous beaches and many types of watersports or there’s Cala’n Forcat, a family-orientated resort, where the kids can splash around at the fantastic water park.


Menorca villas offer a private pool for the ultimate in holiday luxury or you can choose a holiday which offers convenience and comfort close to some excellent leisure facilities. If you’re travelling with youngsters who crave some nightlife, there is comparatively little on offer, although Cala en Porter in the south is relatively lively. Most visitors prefer to escape the busy resorts and find tranquility on uncrowded beaches or amongst ancient archaeological sites. Others make use of the superb golf courses that can be found in most of the island resorts, indulging in their favourite pastime on arguably the most laid-back of all the Balearics.
