If you dread the phrase ‘But that’s boring!’ on a family holiday, then you’ll want a place that has a host of activities to offer, and plenty of people-pleasers when it comes to entertainment. Menorca boasts not only incredible scenery but also tonnes of family-friendly sites to see. If you have kids who’d prefer to swim in the sea, or parents who’d like to go out exploring, this Balearic Island has it all!
There’s such a wide variety in terms of how you can see the entirety of Menorca. You can all hop onto a glass-bottomed boat, go kayaking or even take a 4×4 vehicle tour around the island. The ability to attend these tours in large groups means any children who are easily tuckered out won’t be worn out after two solid hours of trekking around the coastline. If you’re looking for holidays in Menorca that are situated within driving or walking distance of an island tour, and offer luxury and comfort, why not opt for a villa to stay in?
Los Delfines Aquacenter water park
If you’re looking for an activity which will be an instant hit with the kids, then a water park is always a clear winner. Moreover, there’s nothing better than a water park in a sunny setting to get the holiday going with a bang! It comes complete with slides, tunnels and different pools for children of varying swimming abilities. This park prides itself on its different slides and even a large Jacuzzi, for older family members who might want to just chill in the sunshine. This waterpark comes complete with places to eat, that include some child-friendly meals too.
Zoo Lloc de Menorca
If your little ones are getting a bit tired of spending all day in the heat, or if you’re ready to move on from spending your days on the beach, then a trip to the zoo is always a winner with any family. This zoo has the concept of environmental conservation and programmes to guarantee a high quality of life for the animals that reside there. You can walk your kids through the lemur forest and enjoy the cheeky behaviour of the macaque monkeys.
Compete with a volcanic rock peninsula; this family-friendly beach was one of five beaches in Menorca that was handed Blue Flag beach award in 2016 for its impressive standards of quality and safety. It’s ideal for those who want the iconic Mediterranean beach experience of enjoying white sand with pleasant waters to paddle in. There’s a beach bar for top-ups on drinks and snacks and is drivable from residential areas. For family activities you can enjoy a game of volleyball or football on the soft sand, just make sure the sunscreen is within arm’s reach.
Although holidays are time to relax, it can be anything but to try and find activities that please everyone. A cosy island such as Menorca ensures a small, safe slice of paradise that has every type of fun for the family. Even if you can’t settle on something to do, you’ll certainly be dazzled by the island’s jaw-dropping scenery and blue waters.
