Go back in time..
..and visit the necrololis, which is just a few minutes walk from the villa and is fascinating. The site is made up of 14 different caves, some with carvings, pillars and intricately decorated doorways.
Walk to Punta Nati
along the Cami de Cavalls. The start of the path is just up the road from the Necropolis and the walk takes just a few hours. Look out for the monument to the "General Chanzy", which was a mail ship that sank off the coast there in 1910.
Is just a short drive from Garbo. This area of natural beauty has 2 beaches which are great for swimming and snorkelling and various nature trails through the pine forest. Follow the sign to the `mirador` from the car park for spectacular views.
Explore the south coast by boat
There are daily trips from Cala en Bosch along the south coast to Cala Galdana that call into to all of the bays on the way. Lunch is provided on some trips and there are plenty of opportunities for swimming and snorkelling. Alternatively hire a self-drive boat from the beach at Cala Galdana.
Spend a day at the Cap de Cavalleria
An area of natural interest due to the number of archeological remains found there and it's also a bird watchers paradise. The little port here, Sa Nitja, was where the Romans landed when they reached Menorca and the remains of the trading town that grew up around it are still being excavated. Once you have explored the area, relax on the beautiful beach - don`t forget your mask and snorkel.
The highest point on the Island is Monte Toro
A visit here is a "must do" for anyone holidaying in Menorca. The Island's highest point offers the most fantastic views of the whole Island and even over to Mallorca on a clear day. The mountain is home to the Sanctuary of the Verge de Toro, as well as an excellent cafe/bar and a few gift shops.
Ciutadella celebrates its main festival in honour of its Patron Saint, Sant Joan, on the 23 and 24 June. Over the two days, following Minorcan tradition, the town's streets and squares are filled with horses, music, religious ceremonies, hustle and bustle, merry-making and people. Enjoy the lively atmosphere, enjoy a `pomada` or two, dance in the streets and celebrate along with the locals
Take to the sea
and go paddleboarding or kayaking. Trips are available to suit all levels of ability from the beach at Cala Morell.
From the roundabout at the edge of Ferreries
follow the signs to "San Patrici", where you can sample and buy their traditionally made cheese, and their own label wine. Whilst there visit the hillside sculpture garden in the St. Patrici farm, a project worked from white marble to mark Menorca's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve award received in 1993
For a change of scenery go to Favaritx
where the landscape takes on a spectacular lunar quality. In contrast to the rugged coastline around the lighthouse, there are 2 beautiful beaches just a short walk along the coast heading south, Presili and Tortuga. These beaches are completely `uncontaminated` by tourist installations so you would need to take all supplies and equipment with you but this also means that the area does not get busy.
