Playa de Cavalleria

Reviewed By Alison923 - St. Andrews, United Kingdom

This beach is well worth the visit. Parking is ample and there is a well trodden path down to the beach. The sand is red and very striking against the sun. We went late afternoon and it was busier than other reviews suggested but not too bad. The sea was crystal clear and while there was some seaweed you could see well enough to avoid it. The water conditions changed very rapidly from calm to choppy so weaker swimmers need to take extra care. There are toilets at the car park and there was someone selling fresh fruit on the beach. Several nudists around and lots of people trying out the mud spa.

Es Gurugu

Reviewed By Anne S - St Ives, United Kingdom

We often stopped here in the evenings on the way home for a drink outside. Always busy with locals. The bar, one of several there are situated around the square where the children intermingle and play in complete safety. The barman certainly works hard there and we always got free nibbles with our drinks. Like it there a lot even though there is a large screen inside where sport is watched. Something we normally run from! Free wifi also.

Centre Artesanal de Menorca

Reviewed By EMG80 - Yorkshire

We just didn't leave ourselves enough time to look at this attraction. There are exhibits associated with many traditional crafts of Menorca but the highlight was the series of films of 7 of these, of which we only had time to view about 3. Although the commentary was not in English, the film alone showed the various processes and the passion of the participants. We saw demonstrations of cheese making, wall building, stone quarrying and others which showed both traditional and modern methods. A truly educational experience with wonderful local characters. If you want to do it justice, leave at least 2 hours!

Rafa's boats

Choose the best way to spend a relaxing day and enjoy sailing along the coast of Menorca. Our boat trips along the north coast of Menorca is the easiest way to enjoy sailing with family or with friends in a boat that will allow them to achieve the most beautiful corners of our Beaches, swim in crystal clear waters, discover the rich marine fauna and know our rugged coastline from the sea.

Reviewed By Isobel G - Towcester, United Kingdom

Loved it! Our family of 4 and another family of 5 with 1 couple on board along with our boatman. The boat was clean, comfortable and well piloted. Fantastic trip with 2 stops - 1 to explore a deserted beach and 1 to snorkel (goggles and snorkels provided) in a 'secret' cove in the rocks! A very welcome cold drink was then provided on board. We were recommended to go on the 0930 trip which we thought was probably the best option. We would definitely go with Rafa's boat again.

RutasMenorca

Reviewed By Deirdre E - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Ramon, Ralf and colleagues at Rutas Menorca have extensive knowledge about all aspects of Menorcan history, wildlife, flowers, Beaches, and the environment. The highlight of our holidays each year on Menorca are the walks among the wonderful Menorcan countryside guided by Ramon.
We are from Scotland and this year we walked with three fellow travellers from Germany along the unspoilt north coast. Rutas Menorca staff have a fantastic command of languages and keep up a relaxed flow of interesting facts which provides character and continuing interest to supplement the wonderful views, Mediterranean scents and Beaches. Well worth booking a trip to get out into the unspoilt wild countryside of this wonderful island.

Dia Complert

Reviewed By beanstalkgirl - Birmingham, United Kingdom

I went to Dia Complert for a kayaking trip around the caves in August. All was going well, and as I had been assured that there were waterproof, watertight barrels on the end of the kayaks in which to put valuables in, I, like many others, took my phone and my camera.
After finishing the trip, and on travelling home I got my phone and camera out and found they was wet! Not just damp as the outside felt, but on the inside my phone was soaking and totally broken! Luckily my camera had survived - quite how I don't know.
I didn't realise all of this til we had left Dia Complert which was a total nightmare as it turned out.
As soon as we got back I emailed them to tell them what had happened, and to have some kind of explanation, and my money back for something that has not done what it says it would.
There response was basically "you mustn't have tightened it up properly". Well that's very odd, as the instructor was the only one to open and shut the barrel! They offered for me to come and see how waterproof they were, but I was going home the following day and couldn't. I also couldn't fill in the complaint form, as apparently this has to be done in the venue.
Basically, in the end they said they weren't going to compensate me at all - even though my £150 (€180) phone got broken because of there failure in equipment.
Shocking.
One thing to also say that there is nowhere secure to leave your personal property whilst you are doing an activity - I was just told to "leave it on the floor at the back"!
Avoid this company! There are plenty of others out there!

I came here yesterday for the first time in my life and I loved it. If you like beer this is your place, because you can drink beers from all over the world. The burgers and sandwiches are great, well cooked and made with love. Made like yiu had done them. I ate a Sandwich with tunna and there was a lot of tunna! Perfect!
