Petite and peaceful
Punta Prima holidays bring you an idyllic beach resort setting, with amenities and activities centred around its soft white sands. It’s located on the south east coast of Menorca, just 20 minutes from the island’s capital of Mahon. Those wanting to explore the history and culture of the capital can enjoy day trips, while if you’re just looking to get away and soak up the sun on the beach, this is the ideal destination for you.
Explorers will love the coastal paths which wind around the island’s countryside. The Cami de Cavalls (or Path of Horses) offers striking views of the sea below as it winds around the island, allowing you to stop at little beaches for a swim. If you prefer to stay put Punta Prima’s beach has well deserved Blue Flag status, with a host of facilities, as well as shallow waters where little ones can paddle to their hearts’ content.
Luxury holidays in Punta Prima are all about relaxation. There’s no need to go far from the large stretch of white sands backed by restaurants housed in traditional whitewashed buildings. Explore the crystal clear waters with a mask and snorkel or simply take a dip before soaking up the sun. The greens of the nearby forests have crept into the town, which remains luscious and beautiful. Wander the streets and stop off in friendly restaurants and bars where you can choose from fresh seafood platters, paellas and delicious succulent tapas dishes.

Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
