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.
Summers, like the rest of the Balearic Islands, are long, hot, and mainly dry. The warmest period is around mid-June to mid-September, when average daytime temperatures are around 26 to 30°C. The coolest months are January and February, when temperatures rise to around 14°C, although this is still generally much milder than northern Europe. There is more rainfall from September to May, although even in the least sunny month, December, there is an average of just over four hours of sunshine a day, which is pretty impressive for mid-winter!
