Menorca: ThingsTo Do in Menorca with Your Kids

We take a look inside Minorca’s fabulous activities to do with your kids, beautiful  beaches, water parks and places to see!

 

 

Menorca Avec Children

For the first time in a very long time, I decided to really take it easy on our family Menorca vacation. We did some exploring but not exactly what you would have expected of me. My goal was to relax on the beach and we found few that we absolutely loved. The day was long so it gave us a great advantage and the season was early so it was not packed with tourists. We visited couple of beaches on my list but surely did not cross out all that I intended to. My daughter had her best days when we did less traveling on the road and less exploring, she enjoyed her time on the beach right outside our front door and so, happy child, happy mom. We went to couple of water parks but nothing compared to taking a kayak out, sailing or hanging out on the beach eating ice-cream all day long. It helps a lot that the island is so laid back so the pressure of exploring too much, or maybe, I was in an incredible relaxed mood to just sit back and sleep under the most beautiful sunshine!

Water Activities & Water Parks

There are so many different water activities and water parks in Menorca for children. The most common ones are in Cala Galdana, Son Bou, Plates Son Saura, Santo Tomas, Cala En Porter, Arenal d’en Castell, Cala Blanca. These are amongst my favorite beaches which were easy and serviced. Kids can enjoy paddle boarding, pedalos, building sand castles and there are a lot of little shops around where you can buy sand toys.

There are also water parks for kids:

Aquarock Waterpark in the resort of Cala’n Bosch is one of the larger examples on the island, with plenty to keep the whole family entertained. For older kids, the park has trampolines and a go-karting track, but it’s worth noting that the go-karts are not included in the park’s entry price, so if you’ve got more than one child the costs mount up pretty quickly. 

Aquarock Parque Acuático, Carreró Cova d’es Moro, Cala en Bosc, +34 971387822

 

Los Delfines Aqua Center can be found on the western side of Menorca. There’s go-karting, several places where you can eat including a restaurant.

Horse Riding & Farm Houses

You can enjoy the island scenery from on top of and behind (in a carriage) a horse. Pony rides or ride through enchanting woods, gallop along the beach for older children. Riders of all levels are catered for. You can visits to stables and gentle pony rides for younger children.

Jeep Safari Across the Island

We had so much fun by Jeep Safari on our archaeological adventures. Learning more about nature by driving on down dirt tracks in a 4×4 is a fun way to have a look at some of these sites, while enthusiatic, knowledgeable guides bring it all to life and having a picnic at the end of the day!

Fortalleza de La Mola

Even if you are not into history the location is scenically great, and children will love the myriad of underground tunnels/rooms to let our energy( perfectly safe ). Great place to visit after 6p.m to enjoy atmospheric light and watch the evenings sunset over the harbour. There is a little bathing bay just before entrance and you will be see an attractive part of Menorca seldom seen by visitors.

You can get the Water Taxi from Es Castell for a special trip across harbour.

Opening times: July and August: from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. June to September 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. May and October, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. From November to April, Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. closed Mondays. The approximate duration of the visit is 2 hours. Admission: 7 Euro but children under 12 FREE. Guided tours are available for individuals and groups. Individual audio-guides are available in different languages.

Snorkeling With Kids

It’s not the Maldives, but its fun. The waters are amazingly clear so even with just a simple snorkel you will see lots, not murky haze. And because the water is in such good condition you’ll see lots of fish too. Many, many of the resort beaches have shallow sandy bottoms fringed with rocks, ideal for young snorkellers. Organised trips can take you to spectacular places by boat for extra special Snorkel.

  • I’ve been in limbo with my photography and experiencing some sort of a creative block. 
The digital world can either inspire you or exhaust you from repeatedly the same quotes, topic of conversations, images, style, colors, places, food etc. 
I’ve promised myself since the very start, not to fall into a trap of measuring & using my passion for photography based on the number of likes and comments on Instagram, but instead, to shoot, post, open my heart and soul through challenging myself to be more creative through my lens and be more of myself, in between dreams and reality and most importantly, for the feeling to be real...
As creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes, Art is knowing which ones to keep... So bare with me a little until I find myself again...
  • The trips we host on @travelwithtjd on our polar journeys for the past years has been one of the most exciting experiences of my life and I’m so incredibly grateful for everything I’ve learned, experiences, felt, seen and for the people I’ve met on our trips! 
Our season starts this September with different groups traveling with @dennisstever and I to Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland! 
We have also released our travel dates for 2020 and with new destinations too and new experiences. I hope you can join us!! Click the link in my bio to learn more or follow @travelwithtjd for updates!
  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon 
Namaste

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
