Re: Aqua park

The slides and pools at Sant Jaime are good for an hours entertainment. It used to be our daily ritual when our son was <10 to go there for an hour after being at the beach. They're not bad value if you buy 6 or 10 rides.

Re: Name the beetle

Seriously - what is that???

Google has never let me down, I've managed to identify all sorts of Menorcan bugs over the last few years, but that has me stumped. Like Dandelion says, you've discovered a new species.

Re: CnP Restaurants - what's good in 2014

Regarding your trip to El Pescador sandimas, we last ate there about 5 years ago - so-so mixed paella, certainly nothing special, but the waiter was one of the rudest men I've ever encountered in Menorca. I always make a bit of an effort to speak Spanish in restaurants - this particular man pretende...

Re: Tipping

We always leave a tip after drinks, if the service has been ok, which apart from once, it always has been. If the bill is 8 euros I'd leave a euro or so.

Re: bank machine at fornells?

Looking at past topics on here about walking from one to the other, it is apparently just over 2 miles by road ( not much fun in the heat of the day) but there is a rough footpath across the headland, just over a mile or so, but rough ground. You would need shoes, not sandals etc and not recommended...

Re: bank machine at fornells?

Playas des Fornells is about a 3 or 4 km walk from Fornells. I have stayed there several times, there is supermarket near the Country Club and a couple of restaurants/bars (including Noggerwood's fave Cafe del Nord and a pizza type place called Es Cactus) but that's it. It is very quiet and pretty. ...

Re: 2nd year running and great photo ideas

My favourite lighthouse is Favaritx, you can drive up-to that one too, black slate, almost lunar landscape and on a rough day, the sea breaking over the rocks is a sight to behold. Lots of fossils up there too if you are a geek who likes that sort of thing (like me :lol: ). You can also park up ther...
