It has the bonus of being situated on the top floor and is detached on all four sides. It has a balcony to the front and terrace to the side. Both of which enjoy extensive and unrestricted views across the bay at Cala Tirant and inland across the unspoiled countryside towards Monte Toro, the island's highest point.

The community has attractive gardens, a communal swimming pool with children's section and is only a few hundred metres to the beach which has a resident life guard during the main season.

Fornells is less than 5 minutes away by car and offers a superb choice of harbour front restaurants and bars. It is fast becoming the most exclusive location on the island but the harbour area remains completely unspoiled.

About this location

The Balearic Islands region

Just 2 hours from the UK and accessible from most UK airports, Menorca is the second largest of the Balearic islands and measures only 30 miles x 12 miles. Menorca offers everything (climate, food, lifestyle) you would expect from the mainland, but with its own distinctive Menorcan character. Virtually unspoilt and with more beaches than the other Balearic islands, it is an ideal family destination. With the contrasting cities of Mahon (the capital) with its Georgian architecture and Ciutadella (the old capital), both with an array of restaurants and bars to explore.

Both Mahon and Ciutadella come alive at night. Mahon's waterfront is the place to 'people watch' with its luxury yachts and cruise liners (The King of Spain, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas are among a number of celebrities known for mooring their yachts in Mahon harbour).

Ciutadella has a family atmosphere where Menorcan families like to stroll on the cobbled streets between the old Gothic style buildings in the evenings. With numerous restaurants hidden in the many backstreets and also along the harbour front. Ciutadella harbour is also where you can catch a ferry to Majorca for the day.


Fornells is located to the North of the island. It is a traditional white-washed fishing village, well known for its excellent fish restaurants. In July one of the many fiestas takes place in Fornells. The fiesta lasts for four days and involves many beautiful, well-trained horses dancing to traditional music. The fiesta ends with a firework display in Fornells harbour. Fornells has craft markets twice a week.

Playas de Fornells is an exclusive private development 5 minutes drive from Fornells. With a number of bars, restaurants and supermarkets it is well-contained, famous for its award winning gardens and right next to the beach at Cala Tirant. With golf, horseriding, sailing, windsurfing and diving all within 5 to15 minutes from the apartment, it is ideally located.

"We all loved it here!"

This was a lovely apartment with amazing views. The pool was immaculately kept, as was the entire area. The beach was just a few minutes walk and never crowded. Everything you need is nearby but it is… More

"Complete relaxation"

Because we arrived very early in the season 02/05/14, neither the supermarkets nor the local buses were operating. If you had a car there was no problem. Our solution was to get a taxi to Mercadal & p… More

We spent 2 weeks in Marc's appartment (July-August 2013). Playa de Fornells is a very nice place. The beach is quiet, even in summer. You just have to walk up wooden stairs, walk along the cliff … More

"A wonderful location"

This apartment suited us perfectly; close to the pool and the beach, fabulous views from the terraces, lovely safe gardens and easy to walk to some great, friendly restaurants. We spent the first week exploring the island, and the second feeling reassured that this was the best area if you're looking for somewhere less built up for a relaxing family break. The sea is amazing, alive with fish so the kids were delighted. Hubby could fish from the rocks and be called in for lunch from the balcony! We shall be returning soon.
