Taste the typical gastronomy of the Island
In Menorca there is a wide range of restaurants and bars that offer local food delicacies. It is worth visiting several of these places so you can taste a lot of new flavours that you will love, as we already discussed a few days ago in our article: “Most typical dishes of Menorca”
So, if what you want is to travel to the origins of this beautiful island, one of the best ways to do it is through its gastronomy, which based on flavours, smells and textures will gradually make you fall in love.
Visit the lighthouses
A great option to amuse children is to take long walks on foot or tour the island by bike, making stops so that they can play. A wonderful idea to entertain these walks is to visit one of the 7 lighthouses of Menorca, which names are: Cavalleria lighthouse, Punta Nati lighthouse, Sa Farola lighthouse, Artrutx lighthouse, Faro del Aire Island, San lighthouse Carlos and Favaritx lighthouse.
In case you are staying at Insotel Punta Prima Resort & Spa we recommend you to visit Faro Favàrtix, which is only a half hour drive from our hotel. And if what you want is to see a dream sunset, we recommend that when you visit the Ciutadella you will go to the Punta Nati lighthouse, located only 6 km away. It is a lighthouse located on top of a cliff and whose date of construction dates from 1912.
Do aquatic activities in family
When it comes to having fun as a family, the beach is the best place. In it, the little ones have a great time and the adults enjoy playing with them as well. Once on the beaches of Menorca, we recommend you to do water activities such as paddle surfing, kayak rides or water scooter … fun guaranteed!
But, what beaches and coves of Menorca should you go? From Insotel Hotel Groups we recommend the following: Son Bou beach, Cala Mitjana, Cala Galdana, Cala Pregonda, Cala Presili, these are some of the beaches and coves of Menorca with easy access. Perfect to spend a day with the family.
Visit the center of the Ciutadella
The Ciutadella is one of the most beautiful corners of the island, its stone roads will take you back to another era, like the Castle of Sant Nicolás or the Episcopal Palace. Another must-visit is the Port of Ciutadella, a wonderful place to stroll and stop for lunch in one of its restaurants.
If you want to discover a different Menorca, far from the beaches, we invite you to participate in one of the popular festivals of Menorca. Depending on the time of year you will coincide with one or the other. The Menorcan festivities are perfect to take the kids since you will find many activities, fireworks, concerts and lots of fun.
