Menorca Holiday Tips

There is large Euroski Hypermarket in nearby Sant Lluis and a smaller very popular excellent supermarket Sa Botega at S'Ullastrar.

For Self caterers, visit the large Eroski supermarket at the Poligno outside Sant Lluis on the road towards Mahon. The independent Cafe Bar has not only an excellent value and tasty Menu del Dias/Buffet (witness many locals at the tables! ) but you can take it away too!

Punta Prima to Airport is about 22 Euro one way, to Es Castell circa 15, to Mahon max 20 and Binibeca max 10.

Punta Prima - Nightlife

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!

There are no discos only small bars. Entertainment is in the larger hotels also open to non residents if you buy drinks.


Mahon or Es Castell is a bus ride / taxi ride away for a lot more. You might also want to go along the coast to Cala Torret / Binibeca.


Mahon has lots more going on and is an easy Taxi cab back late at night ( Circa 20 Euro )
