This laidback resort keeps the views picturesque and the activities simple, making a Cala Alcaufar holiday the ideal way to unwind.
Cala Alcaufar's in south-eastern Menorca
's east coast. It's one of the island's top spots for some proper relaxation. Quiet streets hold rows of whitewashed houses, palms and pine-trees. There's one bar and one restaurant, though bigger towns are nearby if you fancy stepping things up.
If you're up for a daytrip, Menorca
's capital, Mahon
, is only a 20-minute drive north. Here, shops and historic sights are dotted throughout the cobbled lanes. You can stop by the harbour's old gin distillery, then finish off with tasty tapas plates at one of the buzzing bars and cafés on the water.
Resort life revolves around the bay, where the tranquil, crystal-clear sea's free of noisy watersports. Fisherman's boathouses overlook the shore, and you'll probably see locals taking a morning or afternoon dip. For pulse-raising activities like jet-skiing and diving, take a five-minute drive to busier S'Algar
