Biniancolla, Menorca, Spain
The resort has a laid back atmosphere making an ideal choice for those seeking rest and relaxation.
Cala Biniancolla is a small quiet resort located on the south east coast of the island. The resort offers a small number of hotels, bars and restaurants and for a greater variety Punta Prima is close-by and the capital Mahon is approx a 20 minute drive.
The airport is approx 7km from the resort.
The beach in Biniancolla is very small, just 35m long by 50m wide but it is sandy and quiet so it is an ideal place for a spot of relaxation. There is a bigger beach in Punta Prima which is not far from here.
Many people dive and swim from the rocks but there is a swimming platform and a ladder down for those who prefer to take the safer route.
Things to Do
There are no facilities as such in the resort which may be perfect for those who just want some peace and relaxation but Menorca's largest winery is just 2km away. You can wander through the vineyards at your own pace and get a sample of the wine or you can join the tour (for a small fee) and get samples of their wine, grape jelly and Menorcan goats cheese.
Out and About
There are a couple of restaurants here, one at Biniancolla cove and the other just a short stroll from there. There are no shops here so if you need anything you will need to venture to Punta Prima which is less than 2km away so no big deal really.
As well as a few restaurants, a cash machine, 2 supermarkets and a pharmacy, there is also car hire in Punta Prima which might be a good idea to explore the area.
If you fancy the idea of a trip to the winery, you may also wish to visit the nearby distillery. Not only will you get to sample the gin but you can also try various strange liqueurs and tonics. There is also a liquor outlet and a souvenir shop so you may well pick up a bargain.
If you fancy a little shopping, you may want to take a trip to Mahon and have a wander round the craft and clothing market that is held in the main plaza every Saturday.
Not far from Mahon, you will find a fortress that was built between 1848 and 1875. There is so much to see as you go through the galleries, gun emplacements and barracks.
