lots more what to see and do ideas

Pont Den Gill - Sea Arch a classic natural stone arch and good sundown picnic spot.

Ciutadella being on the door step is a must see especially for historical 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.
