The Menorca region
There is truly something for everyone in Menorca. Less commercialised than its sister islands of Majorca and Ibiza it's a perfect beach holiday for families enjoying almost guaranteed sunshine and balmy nights through the summer months. There are numerous supervised beaches with all manner of water sports or the more adventurous can drive or walk to one of the small deserted coves - you can find yourself on your own even in the middle of summer.
Menorca is a walkers paradise and attracts birdwatchers from all over the world especially to the albufara at Es Grau. Dine in the evenings at one of the harbours, stylish Mahon, Es Castell or Fornells where the king of Sapin visits especially for the lobster calderetta. Children will love fishing and searching the countryside to find wild tortoises and rare butterflies.Spend the evening at one of the local fiestas watching the daring horseriders parade round the narrow streets, enjoy the local produce, fresh fish, grapes, melon and figs, olives and nuts,the local cheeses and of course the local gin and herb liquors.
The long sandy beach is perfect for bathing, sun-worshipping or more strenuous activities such as building sand castles and sea walls! Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired or you can find you have the beach almost to yourself if you are prepared to walk. There are boats to hire, waterski-ing and paragliding and a scubadiving centre.Several beachbars sell drinks and food until late at night.
Behind the beach there are shops including supermarkets,clothes shops and a medical centre. There are several good restaurants and bars including the Hawaiian cocktail bar. The water slides are a must for children as is the extraordinary outdoor maze with its theme nights such as 'scream'
