Many tourists feel attracted to the island of Menorca with the cleanest beaches, as this destination has more than 120 coastal recreational points. Some parts of the coast are only accessible by the sea. The beaches of Cala Galdana and Cala Anna are very popular among holidaymakers.
More private and secluded beaches are located in the northern part of the island, because the sea is quite quiet there. This is the most important feature that makes the area perfect, even for comfortable recreation with children.
The village of Fornells is very important for anglers.
Lovers of modern entertainment must visit the town of Alaior on the island, as it is home to the largest and most popular entertainment complex bowling Son Bou. If you want to ride a horse, you must visit the Equestrian Center near the tourist Information centre.
Menorca is often called the island of Fire and wind. A visit to Menorca during one of the many festivals is a good idea. Exciting and festive festivities are held almost every month.
Each ethnic festival is accompanied by local knights on horseback, as horses are the main symbol of the island. For many centuries, families in Menorca have dedicated themselves to breeding horses. This knowledge is passed on from generation to generation. Horse breeding, for many local families, is still the main activity in life.
