query on S'Algar grocery shop

Post by Sandeman » July 15th, 2011, 12:58 pm

Hello
we are new visitors to Menorca, staying at Alcaufar, in the hotel X..
I read of a lack of shops in the village and that there is a supermarket in S'Algar, how easy is the walk between the two for groceries, and closingtime of said shop?
Many thanks

Too far to walk carrying groceries, by road its a good mile and a half, along the rocky coastline is around half a mile. If you are self catering I would strongly suggest hiring a car and shopping in the large Eroski just outside Sant Lluis. If you can't/don't want to drive I suggest trying to get everything you think you'll need from the Eroski and go by taxi.

Are you just going B and B in the hotel? I would recommend at least upgrading to half board and having a snack for lunch in maybe Piccolo Mundo around the corner, that way you wont need groceries. Or just walk around the headland to Salgar for coffee and a wander.

I envy you staying at the Xuroy, if I was going to chill out completely for a week, that's where I would love to be. Enjoy.

Hello Cassie
Thank's for this, we are in fact 1/2 board at the Xeroy hotel, I was hoping there was a small grocery in the village for water and wine etc to keep in the room.
it looks very peaceful
Thanks

There is a small shop, or used to be near the bus stop in Alcufar, otherwise nice walk along the rocks to S'Algar to the Supermarket for some wine etc.
