The Best Beaches to Visit in Menorca

Menorca holidays are packed with temptations for everyone to sample. But while you may want to explore the archaeological history of the island and its many tourist destinations, you will likely also want to spend some time on one - or more - of the island's beaches.

While Majorca is the larger of the two islands, this Balearic gem is still blessed with a generous sprinkling of beaches on which to spend Menorca holidays. So take a closer look at some of these highlights.

Arenal d'en Castell

This is a stunning beach that is very popular among those visiting the island. It benefits from being in a gently curving bay that provides gentle and shallow lapping waters coming to the shore. There are no severe waves here either so if you are visiting with children, or you are a nervous swimmer, Arenal d'en Castell will be ideal for you.

Cala en Porter

This is one of the most popular spots for Menorca holidays, and a big part of the reason for this is that it has a beautiful beach. It has dramatic looks thanks to the cliffs that flank it and it also has a wide range of facilities that beach lovers look for. These include sun loungers, bars and restaurants and also water sports.

Cala en Brut

If you are not a lover of the sand you can still find a superb place to get a suntan on your Menorca holidays. Take Cala en Brut for example. This area has been created especially for those who want a lovely area to swim and sunbathe in, without wading through the sand in the process. It consists of a series of platforms you can sunbathe on, and the inlet itself is perfect for casual swimming.

Cala Turqueta

Many people like to base their Menorca holidays around a beach that is well equipped with facilities of all kinds. But if you would prefer something a little more natural to enjoy, you should make a beeline for Cala Turqueta. This is usually referred to as a completely natural beach, mainly because you take it as you find it. You won't even find a small bar or restaurant here, so make sure you go prepared and take whatever you will need along with you. There is a lot to enjoy here, though, as you can benefit from the sheltered waters. There are also plenty of places to sunbathe when you get there.

As you can see there are plenty of beaches to choose from no matter where you decide to stay on the island. It is worth bearing in mind that the southern side tends to afford you calmer and more swimmer friendly waters, but there are still some stunning beaches on the northern side if you are more interested in sunbathing than swimming. Wherever you go you are sure to find a good choice of beaches to try out.
