Menorca is the most individual and independently minded of the Balearic Islands. Its character and history has been forged in the fire of successive invaders since the time of the Phoenicians. Its geography is defined and divided by the central east/west 'motorway': south of it is flatter, more arid land; to the north it is greener and more mountainous, leading up to Mount Toro, the highest ground on the island. Roads radiate from the central spine to many villages, holiday resorts and wonderful beaches.
The island offers a warm welcome to all, but is particularly attractive to families, golfers, walkers, bird-watchers and sun-worshippers. The main holiday season is from late May to October, with the hottest period being July, but March and April and early May are great for walkers, naturalists and those who prefer more gentle heat.
Son Parc residential estate is a spaciously laid out private estate of large mainly detached houses with their own pools and gardens. It spreads out round a hill in a series of cul de sacs, which avoids noisy through traffic.
It is a wooded area, though many trees have been cleared to create gardens. El Sueno has a long view over the trees, past the golf course extension, to Mount Toro in the distance. Down in the commercial area are several supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants. Beyond these is the vast sandy beach, backed by sand hills, set by a great crescent bay. There is a cafe to one side and pedaloes and canoes for hire with first-aiders/life guards at peak times.
The more energetic can walk over the hill to smaller quieter coves. It is close enough for golfers to go off to do their own 'thing', while the rest of the family can relax and have fun in and round the pool or go to the beach.
Five or so miles away is Fornells, an old fishing village, full of restaurants, bars and shops and a most picturesque place to promenade. It is set on the edge of a long, almost landlocked bay, which is popular with windsurfers and sailing boats. Small motor boats can be hired for use in the bay.
At the mouth of the bay is a restored hilltop fortification, offering a fine view. Fornells has its blessing the boats festival in August and neighbouring Mercadal has its festival in July.
