A million miles away from the hustle and bustle of some Spanish resorts you may have visited before, S'Algar, on the island of Menorca , offers a completely different story to the normal tourist hotspots. With access to two picturesque coves, S'Algar holidays provide the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and truly de-stress. Kick back and relax, soak up the sun on the waterfront or head over to Cala Alcaufar beach, 15 minutes away, for a stint on the smooth sands. Occupying the south-easterly tip of Menorca, which in itself is probably the quietest and most rugged of the major Balearic Islands, S'Algar boasts relaxing and charming vibes as well as a fantastic lido which more than makes up for the lack of beach. With S'Algar holidays, you will be perfectly placed to explore the island. Whether you're a family looking for a secluded spot for a quality break, or you're a couple in search of a romantic getaway, you can guarantee that you'll find it with a trip to Menorca.
As the capital of Menorca, Mahon provides a great day trip, no matter what you're hoping to find. Particularly perfect if architecture inspires you, Mahon is only 20 minutes away from S'Algar and home to some impressive colonial buildings as well as the spire of the Santa Maria. Pop by the harbour for a bite to eat at one of the mouth-watering restaurants, which overlook the boats bobbing up and down on the horizon.
Follow the scenic coastal trails to El Castell and spend some time admiring the military history that this village possesses. Situated approximately 20 minutes away from S'Algar, you'll find a museum homed in some former barracks, which showcases an impressive collection of cannons and military uniforms alongside other interesting exhibitions.
Once you've explored the castle, head down to the harbour and stop for a bite to eat at one of the restaurants that have been built into the caves. Enjoy the views across to Illa del Llatzeret as you dine on some delicious fare.
Aqua Centre Waterpark
Home to plenty of chutes and slides, the Aqua Centre waterpark will help to keep water babies well and truly satisfied with an afternoon of splashing fun.
Snorkel in the Med
While S'Algar doesn't have a sandy beach, it's a haven for snorkelers and divers hoping to enjoy the underwater kingdom that the Med is home to. The clear sapphire waters are full of marine life and coral so that snorkelers won't be disappointed. With 50m worth of visibility and rocky outcrops that are home to all manner of underwater beasties for you to spot, snorkelling is a big hit with locals and visitors alike.
Venture off on a Walking Trail
Menorca, as a whole, is signposted with various walking trails which prove to be incredibly popular with hikers. Venture off on one of these guided routes, coined as the Path of Horses, and head off along the coast towards the blissful countryside beyond. Punta Prima is one resort that you will come across, perfect for its Blue Flag beach and waterfront restaurants. Take Advantage of the Sports Facilities.
It may not have a beach to speak of, but S'Algar certainly makes up for it with its other sporting opportunities. Whether it's a game of tennis on the local courts, or horse riding through the countryside, you can enjoy various pastimes to pass the day away. The Aero Club, in nearby San Lluis, provides pleasure flights too, or even a flying lesson if you fancy it.
Quiet, calm and incredibly pretty, S'Algar is a corner of Menorca that you may not have heard of before and that's because it continues to be a well-kept secret that, once you've visited, you'll want to return to again and again.
Home to one of the most popular Blue Flag beaches on the south coast, Punta Prima is an ideal resort for families, with the children loving the beachfront fun and the grownups being content with the handful of bars and restaurants in the resort centre.
