Menorca beaches

Our favourite beaches in Menorca

Every Menorca travel guide will tell you to visit the most popular beaches, Macarella and Turqueta. While they are stunning, if you visit Menorca in summer you might discover that they are full from as early as 9am.  If you want to avoid waking up with the sun we recommend you take a boat tour from Ciutadella to visit those beaches.

However, the island of Menorca keeps amazing surprises. If you find yourself with no plan because the beach you were heading to is full, or you are not sure where to start these are our favourite beaches for the summer.
