Location

is located on the west of the island, just 2km north west of the beautiful old city of Ciutadella. Approximatley 55 mins., from the Airport.

Transfers

Public buses are not practical for transfer from Airport ( you must always change at Mahon bus station ) so you will need either a shared or private transfer, Taxi or Hire Car. West coast resorts are often best via a transfer rather than Taxi due to costs - taxi circa 60-70 Eur one way. We recommend shuttle menorca.

Menorca tips - note despite the apparent many offers in Internet there are only three licensed companies who actually provide the service on Menorca, so ensure you know who you are booking with before paying.

Overview

Los Delfines is the local 'resort name' for this area that includes the locations of Cala en Forcat, Cala en Brut and Cala en Blanes. Staying at Cala en Brut is a good option for people looking for the facilities of a livelier tourist resort but being located away from the noise. There is a wide variety of Bars and Restaurants in nearby Los Delfines and for active children there is an Aquapark, where parents can also "relax".

Facilities

Of these three Cala en Brut is quieter and is a good compromise for those looking for the tourist offerings but not wanting to be in ear shot of any noise, particularly if you have smaller children needing quiet. There are lots of childrens play facilities and the restaurants tend to cater children too. Cala en Brut ( aka Bruc ) has a well thought out setting of sunbathing and diving platforms around the picturesque inlet and is also excellent for snorkeling. At its entrance the inlet is almost like a large saltwater swimming pool. The platforms have been constructed at various heights and make a good alternative if you don't like getting all sandy on a beach! There is a local bus service into the nearby old capital of Ciutadella and a "resort" train picks up and drops off a various points in the resort. Los Delfines itself is compact and can be easily explored on foot.

Walks

There is a beautiful valley area of Algairiens east of the resort on the coast, with very picturesque valley and forest walks to the coast and beach Cala Algairiens. Also known as La Vall. Also take a trip out to Cala Morells ( by Bus ).

Nightlife

As with most resorts in Menorca, organised evening entertainment here is generally to be found in the resort hotels and some bars. Mahon, Ciutadella and Es Castell however offer alot more with something for everyone, but with none of the "bing drink clubbing" to be found on Ibizia and Majorca. Menorca is not Majorca but that is why many people come here!

Mahon will mostly be written on timetables, front of buses and signposts as Maó, it's local name. If you are staying longer than a week take a trip on this good network and see some of the other sights, resorts/towns and attractions.

    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.

    Cala Morell

    A small quiet fishing village resort and residential ares 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 ( 2012 ) or by Hire Car.
