Carema Experience

Menorca

Beaches and coves

In just over 216 km of coastline, Menorca hosts more than a hundred beaches and innumerable natural caves and coves on all sides. Its beaches always have crystalline water, with fine white sand to the south, and reddish sand to the north. It is a very diverse landscape, due in large part to the strong north wind that moulds the landscape as it passes.

In the north, you can find a coast with spectacular dark rock cliffs, many virgin beaches and “macars”, which you can only access from the sea. In the south, however, you will find a coastline with white shades, often populated with pine woods and vegetation. One of the charms of Menorca is its contrasts – Menorca is lots of islands within one island!

Our Hotels Carema Club Resort and Carema Garden Village are located on the beach Cala Tirant.

On the other hand, Carema Beach Menorca is located in Cala’n Bosch, with direct access from the hotel to this spectacular southern beach.

Sport and nature

Most of the beaches on the island of Menorca are situated on the route of the Camí de Cavalls, a historical long distance hiking trail (GR-223) which goes around the island and is undoubtedly one of its main attractions if you love sport and nature. The trail, 185km in length, also passes by valleys, ravines and streams, lookout towers, lighthouses and trenches... making it without a doubt one of the best ways to really get to know this island, which was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1993, whether it’s by walking, running, cycling or on horseback. But if it’s the sea you want, there is nothing like diving or snorkelling in the North Reserve of the island, one of the last virgin areas in the Mediterranean, sailing or surfing on the innumerable windy days, going to the coves and virgin beaches in a kayak, or almost flying, with sports such as jet skiing or water skiing. Menorca really is an outdoor sports ground!

History and culture

Few islands in the Mediterranean have had as turbulent and interesting history as Menorca. Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Muslims, Catalans and Mallorcans all passed through the island... Menorca even belonged to the British Crown for over 70 years in the 17th century and was French until, at the beginning of the 19th century, it finally became part of Spain. All of these migratory movements and dominations have marked the customs of the Menorcan people, something you will notice above all in the cuisine, architecture and language.

But if there is one thing that characterises Menorca, it is its megalithic monuments. The Talayotic culture left three typical constructions in Menorca: talayots, navetas and taulas. In total you can find over 1,500 archaeological sites, an exceptional fact which has led to the island opting to become a Heritage of Humanity site. Menorca, a real open air museum!

Food

The Menorcan cuisine is wide and diverse, partly thanks to the many civilisations that have left their mark on the island. Its traditional recipes, passed down from generation to generation, hide many touches that come from the medieval cuisine of the Mediterranean region, Arab and British culture, and to a lesser extent, French culture, which gives it a unique personality that you will quickly notice when you sit down at the table. Among the most well-known dishes is “caldereta de llagosta” (lobster stew), “oliaigo” (tomato soup), “perol de carn o de peix” (meat or fish sausage), and “formatjadas” (cheese pies). Among the most highly-regarded products of the island is the flavoursome Mahón-Menorca cheese, with a protected Denomination of Origin label, the traditional Xoriguer de Mohón Gin, and the peculiar sobrassada sausage, specialities which are all impossible to find off the island.

Fun

Menorca has a special flavour that is also present in the local festivals that are celebrated throughout the summer in the different towns and villages on the island. It’s impossible to spend the “festes” without trying some Pomada (gin and lemonade” or coca bamba (a type of ensaimada, or sweet bun). There are some “festes” in which the Menorquin horse is the star of a sort of dance called “jaleo”, in which the horse and its rider put on a show that is unique in the world. In Menorca you will find tranquillity, but also lots of fun!
