I have never been to Menorca before.
I am pregnant and am looking for a destination with a short flight, non rocky beaches, no steep hills etc. so I am considering Menorca.
I really dislike resorts that are full of british cafes and pubs as i like to feel i am abroad! Please can someone recommend a resort that might suit me and my husband?
Have a browse through our resort reports whilst you're waiting for recommendations :-
I've been to Cala Galdana a few years ago and that was a nice little resort. Menorca tends to be very family orientated with hardly any groups of teenagers (well certainly not when we were there) & also fairly quiet.
If either of you drive I'd recommend hiring a car if your going for 2 weeks as the Island is small and it's very easy to drive around.
Went to Cala Galdana last year which is a beautiful place and would definately recommend, fab beach but this does mean that finding a space can be difficult in peak season . It is quite a hilly resort but if you make sure you don't pick accomodation at the top of the hill you'd be fine.
Went to Cala'n Bosch the year before which is also nice, not as scenic as Galdana but has a nice marina to walk around in the evenings and a couple of beaches. Other nice resorts are Santo Tomas and Son Bou. You won't find any groups of rowdy teenagers in these resorts just mainly families with youngish children mostly.
Wherever you go on the island I highly recommend hiring a car as previously mentioned, as Menorca has so many lovely resorts and beaches to visit and so easy to get around.
As suggested, hire a car it is such a lovely, safe and friendly place.
However as said by others the closest resorts to 'avoid' (though by comparison you might find they are nothing like in your 'nightmares' )
Cala'n Forcat and Los Delfines, the only other place possible inclusion in that category might be Cala en Bosch. Its all relative though. Those resorts were built in questionable locations( read not so attractive , no natural beauty) and as such cater for package holiday industry - they also have the worst beaches.( again given the very high standard of beaches on Menorca )
Personal highlights where going to the chapel at the top of El toro and the La Mola fort near Mahon.
You will love Binibeca Menorca
Perfect for a relaxing get away from it all holiday and the beach is fabulous at Binibeca Nou.
There is a small town Binibeca Vell which has a couple of Supermarkets and some lovely restuarants. We found it all very relaxing and would recommend
It is only a 20 minute ride away from the airport and about the same in a taxi to Mahon.
Hope that helps :-) 8)
