Menorca Holiday Tips

There are some fabulous quality restaurants in the pretty neighbouring villages of Torret and S'Ullastrar.

There are delightful narrow track lanes all around the north of Binisafuller to explore - even the thwack of a cricket bat on ball at the nearby Menorca Cricket Club along the road to Biniparrell and Llucmacanes.

Cala Binipartrix - Valley and Virgin Beach

Along the coast between Es Canutells and Binibeca lies the pretty 'hidden' cove of Cala Binipartrix. A limestone gorge with a sandy beach at the end in a sheltered cove. Park and 10 min walk through the gorge bottom to the beach. (as a virgin beach there may well be piles of dead seaweed so take a little 'clearing tool' - if you don't like walking over it!

Day-time Entertainment

Binibequer Vell

An attractive and well done mock up of a ' traditional fishing village' with small selection of (evening) Restaurants and Bars. Though it can be loud if you are staying there as voices and particularly ladies high heels! fill the narrow passage ways. There is also  Bar with a pool to use if you buy a drink (located in the commercial centre)

Relax while children enjoy a swim? a pool is available at the bar restaurant Es Furat and is free providing you buy a drink or snack.

Shopping & Eating

At Binibequer Vell there is a small array of souvenir and clothes shops in pleasant surroundings, a suprisingly large supermarket, cash point. Cala Torret at the eastern end is a mock 'fishermans' apartments complex in a tiered pedestrian area set above the rocks. There are several restaurants of varying quality alongside and inside the Binibequer Vell commercial centre all in the same location. Cala Torret at the other end of the resort also offers a handful of Bar Restaurants, a mini supermarket overlooking the rocky shoreline and perhaps offers better value.

Menorca Holiday Tips

There is large hypermarket in nearby Sant Lluis and a smaller very popular supermarket Sa Botega at S'Ullastrar, on the way to Sant Lluis.

For Self caterers, visit the large Eroski supermarket at the Poligno outside Sant Lluis on the road towards Mahon. The independent Cafe Bar has not only an excellent value and tasty Menu del Dias/Buffet (witness many locals at the tables! ) but you can take it away too!

There are some lovely drives along idylic narrow country roads through the country side to the villages of Llucamanens and Torret. Torret is picture postcard pretty, leave the car and just walk through it. There are also some highly regarded restaurants ( Sa Pedrera des Pujol, Sa Parereta d'en Doro, Pan y Vino ) . Llucamances is a pretty hamlet and just a further short trip to El Grill, a favourite rustic Bar Restaurant (in old farmhouse ) on the airport access road ( you passed it as you left the airport !) where you will find some of the islands best grilled meat dishes and chill out terrace for evenings.

Visit La Rueda Bar-Restaurant at Sant Lluis, which has a counter with nearly 3 meters of delicous Tapas.

Torret

A village straight out of the picture books, traditional menorcan architecture, with lots of bougainvillea draped over the old white washed houses. Best to leave the car at the entrance roads and just wander respectfully or as part of a cycle tour. Home to highly regarded restaurants for food lovers (Sa Pedrera des Pujol, Sa Parereta d'en Doro, Pan y Vino ). From behind the unmissable watchtower you can wander down to the coast at Cala Torret.

Llucmacanes

If you are mobile, this little village ( 2km from west Mahon ) is a stop off point along attractive, stone walled country lanes to and from the coast. A residential village, many of the former farmhouses have been turned into homes and holiday homes. A little supermarket, plus two tiny atmospheric (open evenings only) restaurants. Es Nit in 300 year old farmhouse (international) and Sa Vinya (Menorcan) . A third larger restaurant, Halliseys has recently opened up here relocating fom the Son Parc Golf Club. All offer a very different experience to any beach resort restaurants for something more special. There are walks into the nearby attractive countryside.
