Holidays to S'Algar serve up traditional Menorcan culture with a modern twist, plus a side of beautiful beaches.

Say hello to S'Algar

S'Algar's a dedicated holiday town on the south-east coast of Menorca in Spain's Balearic Islands. It's got everything from laidback villas to high-energy hotels. Urban haunts, unique thrills and unhurried relaxation are all on the menu, with great links to the capital and routes to scenic natural landscapes.

Live the local life

When in S'Algar, do as the Spanish do. Get a taste of Menorca at one of the traditional restaurants, where the must-try is barbecued suckling pig. You can work up an appetite with guided snorkelling or a diving lesson at the town's school.

Natural neighbours

Holiday favourite Punta Prima is a 10-minute drive south of S'Algar, and boasts a Blue Flag award-winning beach. For a quieter retreat, Cala Alcaufar's just 20 minutes away on foot. Back in town, you can take the plunge and go scuba diving or snorkelling, then dry off on the nearby Path of Horses walking trail.

Capital of culture

For a change of scenery, 20 minutes' drive north takes you to Mahon, Menorca's capital. This hub of modern shopping's also got a huge 18th-century fort and museums galore. You can fill up on rustic and gourmet delights at a food market and end the day chilling out in a jazz club.
