Punta Prima is located in the south east corner of Menorca and just 15 minutes away from the airport. Its a small well laid out quiet resort with a spacious open feel.
You will find a good selection of bar / restaurants overlooking the beach serving a variety of both international and Spanish food for breakfast lunch and dinner. Punta Prima has a couple of well stocked supermarkets selling everything you will need for day to day living, plus a couple of gift shops and car hire etc. Currency exchange is available in a number of outlets, including the supermarkets.
Punta Prima has a very good and extremely attractive beach of fine white sand with plenty of space for everyone. Facing south east it receives the sun first thing in the morning untill late evening just before it sets. But please note it can be dangerous with strong currents at certain times. There is a warning flag above the red cross building at the rear of the beach this tells you when it is safe to swim, please take note of it.

Like all of Menorca's beaches neptune grass can accumulate [sometimes large heaps] on the water line [more info]. This only occurs early in the season or after a storm and is usually cleared up quickly, and should not be too much of a problem.
On the beach front you'll find two bars / restaurants serving everything from cool drinks and snacks to the full menu.
Punta Prima has a good choice of accommodation ranging from 3 to 5 star hotels, quality hostels and apartment complex's, plus a selection of good privately owned property to rent.
A number of easy walks can be found in and around this, the south east corner of the island. As the terrain is relatively flat, non of them are too strenuous. Our favourites are along the coast line in both directions, east towards Cala Alcaufar and S'Algar and west taking you to cala Biniancola. Taking the coastal road passing through Biniancola and onto Binibequer is also quite popular. There is also a land train running between Punta Prima and Binibequer in season which picks up anywhere between the two resorts.
A bus service runs to the capital Mao [Mahon] via the small village of Sant Llouis, a pretty little town full of character and well worth a visit. Other places near by worth visiting are S'Algar, Cala Alcaufar and Binibequer [Binibeca].
There has been a lot of development in the last two or three years, and there are plans to re design the beach front and build a promenade along the length of the resort, Punta Prima is growing into a fine place to take your holidays, more info as I receive it.
