Re: Quiet Beach - July/August?

Binimel-la and Pregonda on the North Coast were quiet when we visited in July last year. Es Grau is lovely if you walk around to the "island" at the end of the main beach. Funny though, we always go to Son Bou and walk 15 minutes up from the car park to find our "quiet beach". Loads of space to spre...

Re: Ideas on restaurant choice ?

Just to chip in my 2 pennies worth - Ca Na Marga is totally the best restaurant we have found so far during 7 years of visiting Menorca. Delicious meat, seafood and puddings to die for! The service was outstanding too. Unless you eat early you might have to reserve a table. It's really easy to find ...

Re: advise where to stay

We started off in Arenal D'en Castell, perfect beach for children and adults, enough to do on an evening, (but not blasting music until 2.00am), good restaurants, couple of supermarkets, very picturesque, and lovely places nearby like Fornells, Addaia, Na Macaret, Binimel-La, Pregonda etc. Have stay...

Re: Restaurants near Son Vitamina

I was searching the Forum and found some really good reviews of a restaurant called "Opera Due" in Son Vitamina, but they were all from 2007.

Do I assume it's not operating any longer?

Re: Festival Timetable?

Thanks Susie H.

I still can't find a detailed timetable of events for the Fiesta though and I've even looked on the Es Mercadel Town Hall website. I know that it is Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th July. I think we'll just turn up on Saturday evening and see what happens. Who knows?????

Festival Timetable?

Hello

Has anyone got a timetablefor the Festival of St Antony in Fornells for July 2010? I know it's usually the 4th weekend in July, and we normally go, but I like to know what's happening when.

Any info would be appreciated.

Jill

Restaurants near Son Vitamina

Hello Everyone, I normally stay in the North of the Island, but this July we are staying at a villa in Son Vitamina near San Clemente. Can anyone on the forum recommend any good restaurants within a 10/15 minute drive? Don't mind price but do want quality and would prefer a traditional Menorcan menu...

Re: Is 2010 going to be quieter than 2009?

I am an old user of this forum, but moved house with new e-mail address, so I re-registered. We are going back this July for our 7th year in a row! Normally stay on the North Coast, but have booked a villa near San Climente this year, planning to book a car with Poppy Cars who we have used in the pa...
