Often overlooked for the neighbouring party islands of Ibiza and Majorca, Menorca is better known for its stunning scenery and laid back atmosphere than its nightlife. However, despite the lack of a wild reputation, this paradise island has a thriving party scene that’s more relaxed with a little more finesse. |
There are a number of excellent beach bars that can keep you entertained into the early hours if that’s what you’re looking for. You can step out of your private Menorca villa for an evening and make your way to some of the best bars on the coast, which you’ll find mostly around Ciutadella and Mahon, the largest cities in the area.
Los Bucaneros - Binibeca
This collection of traditional fisherman’s huts is the perfect place to enjoy some chilled out beverages during the day. Not only do they offer quality service, simple but delicious food and refreshing drinks, it is also located in one of the most picturesque shoreline neighbourhoods on the island. Be sure to try the local gin if you visit!
Cova d’en Xoroi - Cala ‘n Porter
You’ll come for the view, but you’ll stay for drinks and entertainment! Cova d’en Xeroi is truly unique, thanks to its impressive location in the historic caves of Cala de Porter, which makes it the perfect place for a sundowner (or two). This venue serves up luxury in an unforgettable setting along with delicious cocktails and renowned DJ sets later in the evening.
Sa Cova - Binibeca
If you like your bars laid-back and welcoming with a side of mojitos, this is the place for you. Set right on the seashore, Sa Cova is a family-run business that has built up a loyal clientele over the years, and once you’ve experienced the hospitality, it’s not too hard to see why. Their warm welcome is unrivalled and you are made to feel like part of the family in no time. Sit back and relax — delicious mojito in hand — and feel the cares of the world just melt away.
Something of a well-kept secret amongst frequent island visitors, Trogloditas offers guests a little more seclusion and privacy in comparison to the previous establishments. Located on the north coast, you’ll find this romantic beach bar on a quiet side street in lovely Cala Morell. Once you’ve stumbled across this hidden gem, you’re in for a treat of delicious local food and drink — the stuffed aubergines are a legendary favourite amongst the regulars.
Where to Stay
Nothing says luxury getaway like a relaxing stay in your own Menorca villa, which is one of the best options when it comes to finding accommodation on the island. A private Menorca villa gives you the freedom, independence and comfort that will serve to make your holiday that little bit extra special.
Now that you know the best places to party, unwind and excite the palate, you’re ready to plan your dream summer escape to this Mediterranean paradise.
