Es Migjorn Gran - Location

is located a few kilometers inland on the South Coast. Approximately 40 mins. from the Airport. To get to Es Migjorn Gran you travel through beautiful country side. Mahon is about 45 minutes drive, and Ciutadella about 35 minutes.

Due to its remoter location ( plus much of the coast is protected ) Es Migjorn Gran is the town with the least tourism influence on the island. That said it is connected via the holiday resort Santo Tomas which is 7 km away on the south coast. There is little or no accommodation for the tourist visitor here so it will probably be just a visit here. It is typically Menorcan, where the old men gather to shake their heads at the new things in the world.

Es Migjorn Gran is surrounded by grand and beautiful countryside, with many rural paths and single track roads ( Camis ) to explore. It is the starting point for drives or walks in to wonderful wood and valleys ( Binigaus ) and direct south of the town is perhaps one of the most attractive virgin beaches on the island at Binigaus.

Being a 'real town' the amenities here cater more for the local population so the adventurous will be able to experience true Menorca. Es Migjorn has a few Tapas bars, a couple of basic Cafe Bars, basic Cafeterias aswell as some charmimg restaurants for that special meal.
