Imagine yourself diving into crystal-clear water on a sultry summer afternoon. Or chilling out with a new book on a secluded white sandy beach in the early morning. Those are just two ways you can relax and unwind in the tranquil resort of Santo Tomas. On the southern coast of the island of Menorca, this family-friendly resort is the perfect destination for nature lovers. That's because you'll have access to two glorious beaches, and miles of scenic walking and cycling routes, best explored during the soft morning or evening light. It's no wonder families and couples book Santo Tomas holidays time and time again!
Quieter than Menorca's larger resorts, here nightlife is centred on a disco pub, bar, and hotel evening entertainment. Treat yourself to long, lazy Mediterranean lunches at one of the excellent restaurants, then head out to the water for a lazy swim. Whenever you want a bit more variety on the nightlife front, you can walk along the beautiful coast to Son Bou before dark. Later, just hop in a taxi and you'll be back in your accommodation in no time.

Arenal Den Castell
Turquoise water, gorgeous beaches, and wonderful sea views: just three phrases that perfectly sum up holidays to Arenal De En Castell, a Mediterranean paradise on the northern coast of Menorca. It's a little more off the beaten track and hidden away than resorts on the island's southern coast. However, the prize you get for trekking a little further afield is an authentic island atmosphere that's much more laid back than you might expect in the big resorts of Majorca or Ibiza.
With plenty of other attractions for you to explore within a half-hour journey of Arenal De En Castell, you can always try something different whenever you get tired of the beach, whether you're interested in visiting historic sights, or going on a long hiking session.

If you're looking for beauty, relaxation and leisure, it really doesn't get any better than Cala Galdana holidays. That's all thanks to this resort's clean white sandy beach, gleaming turquoise waters, and great mix of accommodation and restaurants to suit different tastes and budgets.
The shell-shaped cove is overlooked by several bars, restaurants and shops so you can always take a break from the beach if you fancy a beer, a bite to eat, or a new snorkelling kit. Speaking of snorkelling, the water here is also remarkably clear, so when it gets too hot, just pop on your goggles and take a look at the wonderful aquatic life just beneath the surface.
Things to do
From May to September, the Son Martorellet Estate near the main road between Cala Galdana and Ferreries holds excellent equestrian shows twice a week, which are a must-see if you happen to be a horse fan.
If you're interested in exploring some of Menorca's historic sights during your Cala Galdana holidays, then take a day trip to the capital, Mahón, about a 30-35-minute drive away. Here, you can visit the Museo de Menorca (museum) to learn about the island's history. Explore the town's superb markets like the fish market (Mercat del Peix) at Plaça Espanya on Tuesday to Saturday, or the Mercat Artesa de Mahón arts / crafts and food market at Plaça de s'Esplanada on Wednesdays between June and August.
Another place that's definitely worth putting on your holiday itinerary is Faro de Favaritx, an impressive lighthouse with breath-taking coastal views and walking routes. Then there's the Catamaran Sunset Trip, a 2-hour and 45-minute cruise departing from Fornells harbour. Cruise on the dazzling Menorcan coast, stop for a swim and snorkelling session, then enjoy a free drink on the deck as you watch the sunset.

Secluded along the south-eastern corner of Menorca, Punta Prima is a prime location for holiday relaxation. It lies in the municipality of Sant Lluis, where it’s the oldest resort, six miles south of Mahon and close to both Binibeca and S’algar.
With its golden sandy beaches, rocky, jagged cliffs, and dramatic landscapes, it’s mainly visited by Menorcans and tourists from the north of Europe. Punta Prima’s historic sites and fishermen’s refuges gift the village with traditional charm. At the same time, its huddle of restaurants, local boutiques, and water activities add a touch of dynamism.
From snorkelling and kayaking to paddle boarding and jet skiing – be prepared for some great fun.
Blue Flag Beach
Menorca is famous for the many beaches that have been awarded the Blue Flag – an official seal of quality for the cleanliness of the water, facilities, and accessibility.
The white, fine sand and the unmatched colour of the water make Punta Prima beach, also referred to as “Playa del Aire”, is one of the best on the island. Its location makes it easily accessible, and the promenade along the shores provides tourists with breathtaking views of the bay.
Long walks along the coast
Punta Prima boasts scenic walks along its coast, where you can enjoy the sun setting on the Mediterranean or simply breathe in the magical atmosphere.
One of the most beautiful walks goes from Punta Prima to Cala Sant Esteve by the Camí de Cavalls. It starts from the northern end of Punta Prima beach, following the water edge and gradually leaving behind the Illa de l’Aire. Points of interest along the way are Alclafar Tower, de Torre dels Penjats and the Forth Malbarought. It caters to everyone – experienced hikers and first-timers alike – as the terrain is flat throughout the path.
Another recommended walk goes from Punta Prima to Barranc de Rafalet. From the headland, you’ll be able to see S’Algar to the north and back along the coast to the Illa de l’Aire. The walk takes between two and three hours, with stunning views of the coast all around.
Daytrips to Mahon
Punta Prima sits only six miles south of Mahon, which makes for a great day trip. Mahon, also referred to as Maó, is the capital and second-largest city of Menorca. It is famous for its natural harbour – one of the longest in the world at three miles long and 3000 ft wide.
The elegant, laid-back architecture reflects the legacy of the British occupation in the 18th century. Various cafés scattered around the town centre make Mahon a destination of choice in the Balearic Islands.
Take a boat trip along Mahon’s harbour to meet the Mediterranean and watch as the dramatic landscape unfolds. After your trip, stop at the Mercat de Pescados (Fish Market) and grab a tapa in one of the local restaurants.
Water Sports and Parks
When it comes to water sports and parks, Punta Prima is a go-to. You can hire a paddleboard or a kayak from one of the local resorts or head to Punta Prima beach for an unforgettable snorkelling experience.
If you want to spend your day at a water park with the kids, Splash Sur Menorca is a great option.
