Holidays to S'Algar
Located on the extreme south east coast of Menorca, the secluded resort of S’Algar is a mere 10km journey from the International Aeropuerto de Menorca, taking around 15 minutes in total.
Ideal for families with small children or for those heavily into water sports, S’Algar is a quiet, purpose built resort, consisting of little more than a few large hotels, a handful of self-catering apartments, and a large number of privately owned villas and holiday homes.
Being so close to the airport, public transport is frequent and reliable, making it easy to get around and explore the sights Menorca has to offer. During the busy summer period, there are around 6 buses a day into the capital city of Mahon; this short 20 minute journey will only cost you about €1 each way. For those seeking greater adventure, connections are available to the rest of the island from Mahon.
Those into water sports will find their paradise in S’Algar; its sports facilities are widely regarded as being the best on the island. Spend your days splashing around in the water, before relaxing during the evening in a quiet restaurant or bar.
Unusually for a family holiday destination, S’Algar does not boast its own proper beach. There is however a narrow strip of imported sand in front of the Hotel S’Algar, or you can take a 15 minute stroll to the cove at Cala Alcaufar. This small beach is perfect for those with small children as it is very safe for them to play, and parents can sample some stunning views.
If you’re into shopping, you may prefer to take a trip into Mahon to find designer labels and brands. Despite that, there are a couple of small supermarkets selling the everyday essentials you’ll need during your stay.
The small and secluded aspect of the resort gives you a feeling of total safety and privacy; ideal for those with small children or for mature couples who prefer a quiet life.
