Protecting the beaches for all

Particularly on virgin beaches, take a bag for your rubbish and take it away WITH YOU. Please DO NOT leave cigarette stubs!


Good to know

Choices you can trust - we're not Travel bloggers on a one off flyin-flyout visit. We know Menorca. Experienced it as Teenagers, been young couples and parents with small children and seen a lot of sand! :-)

Our photo rich Beach Map and Directory will allow you to see all the island's beaches. Menorca is small so if you are mobile you can visit a new beach every (half) day!

There is no such thing as a private beach on Menorca. They are all owned by the state and can be used by the public. Actually the entire coast line up to 6 meters inland is public property. However unless part of a holiday resort access maybe over private land with controlled acesses ( some car parking charges )

Best Beaches for young children?

Nearly all of Menorca's beaches have shallow falls into the water so the waters are safe AND warm up from the sun quickly! - this makes them very suitable for Toddlers and Babies. Most beaches have good snorkelling due to the water quality and rocks along the bay side ( where the fish are ) , so in all any resort beach in Menorca is very good for children. Our children tested them all many times!

Best Beaches for older children?

As kids we loved waves and some beaches like Punta Prima and Cala den Porter do have predictable fun waves (due to sand banks)

BEST Resort Beaches in 2023

Over the year's we've been to ALL Resorts, many times at different times of a year.

Best Beach we've picked picked out our personal winners.

Our Beach location tip

Of course BEST is really subjective, particularly as the standard around Menorca is very high. However, the better beaches are considered to be along the south, north and eastern coasts. The western coast beaches are much smaller, with a larger amount of packaged tourism competing for their space so fuller in peak season.

Each Beach has life-guards, first aid and a flag system for swimming safety.

Menorca is famed for it's many secluded Beaches aka Virgin Beaches ( locally called 'Playas Virgines' ) with no tourist development and in their natural state.

The northern coast beaches are very varied, generally wider/larger than those in the south but are more exposed to the open sea on less calm days so can have more wind and waves. They typically have coarser sand of varying colours and big 180 degree panoramas.

The south coastline is dominated by fine grained white sandy inlets and bays often with pine forest fringed cliffs and surroundings - as they are formed from river valleys carved from softer limestone plateaus. Very Carribean like.

Many remote beaches are only accessible by going through private land. You should respect this and keep to the tracks. Some land owners charge a small fee and restrict the visitor numbers which helps keeps the beaches in their pristine state. Dress appropriately and shut ALL gates behind you. In our exeperience respectful visitors are rarely turned away.
