Must Sees

Pont Den Gill - Sea Arch

Ciutadella being on the door step is a must see visit especially for history and culture fans looking for authentic Menorca.

Majorca is within touching distance. On clear days ( especially springtime ) The mountains of north Majorca are very clear and also make for great sunset view backdrops.

Tip A fast ferry from Ciutadella will take you to Alcudia in Majorca BUT you will need to stay overnight due to return times.

Ciutadella

A taste of former elegant times with fine old spanish palaces, moorish influences, a wonderful old centre and a charming little harbour. Ciutadella was the original capital of the island lying at the western edge of the island looking out to its bigger neighbour Mallorca. A superb contrast to the beach and holiday resort. Great atmosphere and shopping and a place to wander the pedestrianised old city and its many narrow streets with hidden shops and Cafe treats. Also competes with Mahon for the title of the best music bars and venues on the island. The scene for the spectacular Sant Joan festival in June, when stunning native black horses parade through the streets and the brave try to "touch the horses' heart" as it rears in front of them.

Family Snorkelling

The pristine waters of Menorca are a real holiday memory. They are amazingly clear so even with just a simple snorkel you will see lots, not murky haze. And because the water is in such good condition you'll see lots of fish too. Many, many of the resort beaches have shallow sandy bottoms fringed with rocks, ideal for young snorkellers. Organised trips can take you to spectacular places by boat for extra special Snorkel.

Better Snorkeling spots as apart of small boat trips/self-hire from Ciutadella

With its warm crystal clear waters, many underwater caves and coral-clad rock formations, Menorca is recognized as one of the most spectacular dive sites in the western Mediterranean.

Cycle Route Ideas

Like most of Menorca this is more Natural, so don't expect too many cycle lanes. Better to use the off road tracks and marked routes as the little roads that make up much of the country network have lots of blind corners.

Cala en Blanes - Near By ( Bus Route 62 from Ciutadella )

Cala Morell

A small quiet fishing village resort and residential area on the north west coast set in dramatic rocky coastlines. Best known for the extensive man made (Bronze and Iron ages) cave dwellings nearby that give a real sense of cave "living" ( though many caves were also for burial ). Some are sophisticated with central roof columns and 'windows'. Some are obviously younger and larger, cut with more advanced metal tools, but the smaller older ones gives a view into another world. A good place to combine with a visit to the beautiful virgin beach of Algaiarens and walks through the very attractive valleys of Vall de Algaiarens. Bus 62 circa 15 mins 1.85 Euro single ( 2019 ) or by Hire Car.
