Binibeca – Best for quiet contemplation
If you have had enough of the standard boozy, and quite frankly, exhausting girls’ holidays that you and your friends have favored in the past, then Binibeca is the ideal location for you. This beautiful and traditionally designed resort is dominated by whitewashed villas – so, no high-rise hotels in sight – and is the perfect antidote to hectic home life. Take a stroll along the beach, chill out beside the pool, or if you are feeling energetic, why not go snorkeling?
If you are looking for tranquillity and quality girl time, then look no further; book your villa holiday in Binibeca today.
Cala En Bosch – Best for a lively atmosphere
If you want a bit of excitement to go alongside your R&R, then Cala en Bosch is a great choice for you and your friends. This modern resort hosts a lively atmosphere and has a wide selection of restaurants, bars and artisan shops. If you do wake up with a little bit of a sore head, then you could do a lot worse than heading to one of the local beaches with their pure white sand and clear waters. Both Cala en Bosch beach and Son Xoriguer beach are incredible!

Cala Blanca – Best for day trips
As much as you may love lounging around your own private pool in a stunning private villa, sometimes you want just a little bit more, like a chance to explore and have some much-needed fun. Not only is Cala Blanca one of the busier resorts in Menorca, but it is also very close to several other must-see locations.
If you love the open water and want to check out the breath-taking natural surroundings in a bit more detail, then why not book a local boat trip from nearby Cala en Bosch? Or perhaps, you fancy something more boisterous? In which case, you can head straight to the nearest water park for a day of fun and laughter. However, if culture is more your cup of tea, the unmissable town of Ciutadella should be top of your to-do list, as it’s a mere 7km away from Cala Blanca.
Arenal D’en Castel – Best for beach babes
Think warm crystal waters, stunning sunsets and a plethora of activities on offer such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a chance to dive and explore the underwater caves and coral-encrusted rock formations. Just behind the beach itself, there are several high-quality restaurants, plus a number of bars that are perfect for a quick cocktail or two after a hard day’s sunbathing. What more could you want?
Cala En Porter – Best for stunning surroundings
If you want to wake up in the morning, step out onto your villa balcony and see a fabulous view of the surrounding countryside, white sands and turquoise waters, then Cala en Porter is your best bet in Menorca. One of the first and oldest resorts on the island, it consists of a mixture of villas, apartments and residential homes, and has been compared to Lulworth Cove in Dorset due to its imposing limestone cliffs. The beach is gorgeous, the restaurants are terrific, and there are enough karaoke bars to keep you going into the early hours (if you want to, of course!)
Son Bou – Best for a bit of everything
Although Son Bou is a small resort, it has a lot to offer, plus it has the added benefit of being just 20km away from the country’s capital, Mahon. This resort’s beach is long (3km) and shallow, with perfect white sand that has to be seen to be believed. It also has several different water activities available, and there is a multitude of restaurants serving a wide variety of different cuisines, including British, Indian, Chinese and Mediterranean.
Fancy a bit of culture? Son Bou is home to a Roman Basilica, as well as the famous prehistoric settlement of Torre d’en Galmes, which is a mere 10km away.
