What to do in Menorca with a partner?

Menorca lends itself to couple activities because of its incredible landscapes, its climate and its intimate and relaxing corners.

Surely many of you are going to travel to Menorca with your partner and you are thinking about what to do in Menorca during those days that you have marked on the calendar for a long time. Don’t worry, as good Menorcans we have plenty of plans for all of you. 

Check them all out and if you have any more post them in the comments!

1. Enjoying a quiet day at the beach

Obviously, the first plan has to be to go to a beach with your partner. In Menorca you could spend months visiting beaches and you would never finish. Depending on where you are staying or the distance you want to go to the beach, you can choose one or the other, at the moment we put the best beaches to go as a couple. All these beaches during the summer season are usually quite crowded.

  • Cala Pregonda: To access this beach you have to walk a little, but it is worth it because it is in the north of the island, it is a true paradise. You also have the possibility to access from the sea with a boat trip from Fornells. All the information about Cala Pregonda here.
  • Cala Escorxada: In the south of the island this cove, little frequented and if you go with a partner to spend a quiet time is a good choice because it is little crowded by people. You have to walk 1 hour to get to the beach, but it is well worth it. You should bring what you need to spend the day because it has no services, so rest is more than guaranteed.
  • Cala Presili: Also in the north of the island, to get there it is necessary to follow the well-known Camí de Cavalls.
  • Cala Macarella or Macarelleta: A beautiful cove in the south of the island, white sand, crystal clear waters, also ideal for a day at the beach. All the information about Macarella here.

2. Boat trip in Menorca:

There are companies in all ports of the island and depending on your budget and availability you can choose from a multitude of options.

3. Enjoying a sunset:

See sunset couple menorca

Surely if you are traveling as a couple you can not miss this romantic moment, no doubt, the sunset will fill you with tenderness and will make you forget all the bad moments.

The sun sets in the west of the island, on the side of Ciutadella, so the best places to see the sunset, in our opinion, are:

  • Bar “Puesta de sol”: It’s a bar located in Cala’n Blanes (Ciutadella) in front of the sea …. you will see the sun going down the horizon comfortably while you have a drink.
  • Punta Nati lighthouse: This beautiful lighthouse built in 1912, given the various shipwrecks that occurred on the coast of steep cliffs is easily accessible and only 7 kilometers from Ciutadella, ideal for, after watching the sunset, stop in Ciutadella for a romantic dinner with your partner.  All the information about Faro Nati here.

4. An evening stroll through Ciutadella:

If you travel with your partner, a must is to have dinner somewhere special.  The gastronomic offer is excellent in Menorca. It is a territory with a high quality product, zero km.   There are many places where you can go for dinner with your partner in Menorca with incredible views but in this case we propose you not only to go for dinner, but to visit the old town of Ciutadella, have dinner and then, if you want, go for a drink in the port of Ciutadella.

If you travel in the summer months we recommend you to arrive early in Ciutadella to be able to find parking, otherwise you can leave your car in the parking lot of the cemetery or on the outskirts of the old town. No matter how far you leave it, it will be faster to walk 10 minutes than to walk around the square des born with practically no chance of success.

Where to go for dinner in Ciutadella? 

We propose 4 restaurants with 4 types of food for you to choose from.

  • Café el Balear: Practically the most famous restaurant of Ciutadella, local product of quality. To eat lobster or fish stew, ideal.
  • Puspaayu Burgers: New premises in Plaza dels Pins. Quality burgers with a very nice interior patio.
  • El Pollo: Small restaurant where they serve very good Galician style tapas.
  • Pizzeria La Roma: Probably the best pizzas on the island.

At the end of dinner you can walk through the narrow streets of Ciutadella that have a spectacular charm, have an ice cream and go to the port area.

There you will find a lot of atmosphere in the terraces of the discos where you can have a mojito or a drink and end a nice evening.

5. Diving in the crystal clear waters of Menorca:

A good activity to do as a couple is to go snorkeling for an afternoon somewhere on the island. There is no shortage of options. You will be able to see the beauty of the island also in its depths and its aquatic diversity.

You can do some “baptism” in one of the diving centers of Menorca or you can stay in a simple snorkeling session, for us, it is enough to snorkel in one of these spots:

  • Cala Morell: It is in Ciutadella, spectacular place, although it is a “mini” port with some boats there is a lot of life and for someone not used to snorkeling can really like the experience. Article with more information about Cala Morell.
  • Binimel-la, Els Alocs, Cala Viola: All these beaches are within the Northern Reserve of Menorca and are worth the effort. There is a lot of life.

6. Getting to know Rural Menorca in a typical cheese factory: Subaida

On the Subaida estate, between Es Mercadal and Alaior, you will find a typical Menorcan cheese factory that offers all kinds of guided tours where you can taste Menorcan cheese and wine.

It is a farm of 350 hectares with its own production of Mahón Menorca cheese. In fact, they have won several international awards for their good cheese.

They offer different guided tours of the farm:

  • Guided Tour: One hour guided tour with cheese and sausage tasting included.
  • Guided tours with breakfast or snack: It is a guided tour and a more substantial meal depending on the time of day.
  • Others: Wine pairings, workshops to make mahón menorca cheese.

It is an ideal plan for couples to get to know another side of Menorca at a super economic price.

7. Kayaking along the south coast:

Continuing with the water activities, another good option is to rent a kayak, so we can enjoy this activity or we can be taught to use it in a more professional way, if you are adventurous sure you will like this activity.

The best kayaking excursions are: 

  • In the Paya de Es Grau, in Maó, they rent kayaks and it is a good excursion. We leave Es Grau beach and arrive at sa “illa d’en Colom”.
  • In the bay of Fornells there are also several kayak companies and you can go to the other side of the bay where there is a spectacular virgin area.
  • In Cala Galdana you can rent a kayak and go to Macarella or Trebalúger. These beaches are difficult to access on foot.  

Always remember to check the weather forecast before renting a kayak. 

8. Horseback riding along the “camí de cavalls”:

Menorca, with its equestrian tradition, has different companies that offer this activity.

They are usually hourly routes, since these activities are usually in high demand among tourists visiting the island, if you know you are going to want to go horseback riding, book in advance to ensure a place.

It is a different activity and not dangerous at all. 

Prices range from 30 € to 70 € depending on the hours of the route. 

9. Hiking Route along the Camí de Cavalls:

excursion along the cami de cavalls

Another good option to do with your partner, if you like walking and hiking or biking, is to do some of the sections of the Cami de Cavalls. 

It is an old trail that used to run along the island for coastal surveillance. This trail is part of the cultural heritage of the island and is very well marked. To reach some beaches like “Cala Pregonda” you will have to walk along the beach for a while. 

We leave you the official website of the camí de cavalls so that you can choose the stretch that most excites you. 

There is also a local company that helps you to make the return trip to Menorca by the Camí de Cavalls.

10. Relax in a Spa:

If you are already tired of so much nature, walking, hiking, etc. you can also opt for a massage and spa treatment with your partner.

You will eliminate all the stress accumulated during your daily life and you will leave as good as new. In Menorca we have several places to go to relax.  There are different spa hotels on the island. 

The most complete SPA is the one in Cala Galdana, in the hotel“Artiem Audax” where you can relax in the best hands. 

11. Getting lost in the white Binibeca:

It is a small fishing village about 8 kilometers from Mahón. The village, completely restored, with its labyrinthine streets, where you can spend a pleasant time taking pictures and enjoying the local architecture. At the entrance of the village you can find stores and a commercial center where you can do some shopping. Also, near Binibeca you have the beach.

These are our favorite things to do as a couple in Menorca. But you, do you have a better plan? Comment!
