Activities for relaxing on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea
Sustainability is a way of life in Menorca. The landscapes, coves, gastronomy, local atmosphere... There are plenty of ways to enjoy everything the island has to offer in peace, without having to keep track of the time.
Menorca provides plenty of opportunities to put together a spectacular photo album. The first place the sun rises in Spain and prehistoric Talaiot monuments, among other memorable snapshots.
Painting in the open air
Let your creativity run wild and be inspired by the island’s landscapes. If you love painting, you will be captivated by the bright colours of Menorca’s natural settings.
Wellbeing on the beach
A yoga or Tai Chi session with the sound of the waves in the background while breathing in the sea air. Is there any better way to clear your body and mind? Take a paddleboard trip to discover the coast in peace. Or try a SUP Pilates class on the beach. And to round off the day, relax with a spa treatment.
Slow food: from the garden to the table
The Menorcan gastronomy pays tribute to local, fresh products. You can taste exquisite flavours from the earth and sea at Menorca’s km 0 restaurants, where the dishes are prepared with nearby ingredients. Vegetables, meat, fish, seafood, cheese, wine... If you want to buy them, the Agroxerxa website will show you all the points of sale on the island.
An appetiser at Cova d’en Xoroi
The d’en Xoroi cave is a stunning, almost magical place on the south coast. Situated on a cliff, it has a beautiful viewing point to take in the sunrise or sunset. It has a bar-lounge where you can quietly enjoy the appetiser of the day or the evening while listening to relaxing music. The atmosphere livens up at night with disco sessions and DJ performances.
Hiking and horse-riding routes
Menorca has plenty of routes for excursions both inland and on the coast. One of the most well-known is the Camí de Cavalls: a historic path that goes around the entire coastline of the island, passing by coves, forests and ravines. You can go at your own speed, do it in stages, on foot or in the saddle of a horse.
More than 200 species of birds choose Menorca as a stop on their migration routes throughout the year. Seeing them in their natural habitat is fascinating. The best ornithology area is s’Albufera des Grau, although you will also find birdwatching excursions and tours around the whole island.
Accommodation in nature
The tranquillity and natural essence of the island can also be enjoyed through its accommodation. Rural hotels, agrotourism establishments, traditional houses, holiday homes,... Whatever you choose will be the right option.
