Beach Holidays to Menorca
Playa Arenal d’en Castell also ranks highly on every list of best beaches in the Balearics. This golden crescent is perfect for a family day of splashing and sandcastle-building, as well as a romantic day in the sun with your partner. Within 100m of the beach you’ll find everything from karaoke bars to authentic Spanish eateries. Prefer somewhere a bit quieter, with clear, shallow waters, soft sand and lifeguard protection during the day? Cala Macarella is the bay for you. The name of this beach really rolls off your tongue, and its vibe is just as fun – it’s a great place for a relaxed family day out. You can even walk along the shore to discover another sandy spot called Macaralleta – you’ll find some of the best views on the island here, so be sure to bring your camera.
Food and Drink in Menorca
If your diet is plant-based or you’re simply in the mood for something lighter, select oliaigu – a wholesome tomato broth with chunky veg - from the menu if you spot it. This is a gazpacho soup, so it’s served chilled – perfect for cooling off in the hot Mediterranean sun. Travelling with a picky eater or two? No need to worry; near the larger resort towns of Ciutadella and Mahon you’ll easily find pubs and restaurants serving British classics; holidays to Menorca can be filled with local dishes or home-from-home favourites.
