Family Snorkelling

The pristine waters of Menorca are a real holiday memory. They are amazingly clear so even with just a simple snorkel you will see lots, not murky haze. And because the water is in such good condition you'll see lots of fish too. Many, many of the resort beaches have shallow sandy bottoms fringed with rocks, ideal for young snorkellers. Organised trips can make a great family day out with as a Snorkel Safari or stop off as part of a Boat excusrions. There are also marine reserves around Menorca where the marine life is even more abundent.

Cycle Route Ideas

Cycle Hire in Santo Tomas

Like most of Menorca this is more Natural, so don't expect too many cycle lanes. Better to use the off road tracks and marked routes as the little roads that make up much of the country network have lots of blind corners.

From up here there are excellent views of the whole island - upto the bay at Fornells ,the northern coast and the rolling hills of the island's centre.

Santo Tomas Beach

Soft White sands with gentle falls. The beach at Santo Tomas is one of the few resorts with hotels so close to the beach. It also has a long promenade parallel to beach , again a rarity ( due to environmental practices ) Es Pins beach bar/restuarant is good. Restaurants, supermarkets are all a short walk away The local Virgin beach is a 20-40 minute walk westwards to Playa Binigaus. Nice long walks to neighbouring Son Bou beach and back ( sundown recommended )
