Menorca Guide

Menorca is an exciting Mediterranean island with seducing unspoiled coastlines, delicious food and amazing culture. Although you’ll never go wrong by discovering Menorca at your own pace, you can kick up the excitement factor by seeking out some of these highlights and unique places. Let’s explore the best things to do in Menorca!

DISCOVER THE OLD TOWN AND NATURAL HARBOUR OF CIUTADELLA
Take a map and explore the narrow cobblestone streets of the historic center of Ciutadella, home to top restaurants, boutiques stores and bustling local markets. Places worth visiting include the Cathedral of Santa María, popularly known as the Cathedral of Menorca, and Des Born square (Plaça Des Born), the city's old main square. You can also enjoy fantastic views of its natural harbor and walk along its peaceful cafe and restaurant lined marina.

Where? Historic Center of Ciutadella de Menorca.

TAKE A DIP IN AN UNSPOILED BEACH
Menorca offers a great number of peaceful paradise beaches and hidden virgin coves. Their access isn’t often easy but the fine golden sands and clear waters are well worth just a little extra effort. Some of our favourites are: Cala Macarella y Macarelleta (25 mins walk from Comitas Floramar), Cavalleria Beach (20 mins ride from Comitas Tramontana Park) and Playa de Cavalleria (15 mins ride from Comitas Isla del Aire).

VISIT S'ALBUFERA DES GRAU NATURAL PARK
S'Albufera des Grau is Menorca's largest wetland. With more than 5,000 hectares, you can walk along some of its signposted routes, watch the different species of water birds, or visit the Favàritx lighthouse and its cliffs. While here, don’t forget to check out the beautiful natural beach in the fishing village of Es Grau. It sits in a large horseshoe-shaped bay and features great lengths of clean shallow waters. Perfect for a family day trip!

EAT LOBSTER STEW IN FORNELLS
Caldereta de langosta (lobster stew) is the most emblematic dish of Menorcan cuisine. It is based on a sofrito of onions, tomatoes, garlic, parsley and lobster, which is slowly cooked in a clay pot and served with thin slices of bread. If you want to give yourself the pleasure of eating this local delicacy, the small fishing village of Fornells is the temple of caldereta. Here you will find the true masters of this Menorcan dish just a few minutes away from our hotel Comitas Tramontana Park.

The legendary Camí de Cavalls is a 185-kilometre route along the coastline of Menorca that will take you through exceptional landscapes and rugged coastline. On foot or by bicycle, the Camí de Cavalls is a great way to explore the island. So put on your best walking shoes and traverse this wonderful trail along turquoise seas and sheltered coves. If you fancy trying some horse riding, there are also sections that are also suitable for it. Definitely an unforgettable experience in Menorca.
