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.

  • Some truth: 
I created a life I always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
I knew what I wanted from the very start and I didn’t let anything stand in my way. 
The stories of who I am is told through what I remind myself on how far I’ve come and that it’s always ok not to have everything figured out. 
I’ve always known what I wanted out of my life, and I’m still on my journey. 
So, how am I coping with our @travelwithtjd business during this pandemic? 
I’ve pushed away those who told me “ You are a dreamer for thinking it will end soon” -  because I believe it will. 
I’ve dropped those who laughed when I said we will fly the skies once again, sooner than we think.
I’ve blocked those who have repeatedly given me their advice that I should find a new hobby or create a new business.
Because, with this lockdown or not, I’ve been creating my own reality, with my passion and love for yoga, traveling, photography, reading and my persistence on building an empire out of @travelwithtjd - I’ve been (and still) doing exactly what I’ve always loved. 
We are strong resilient human beings. And I for one, will always stay hopeful and I know that in the end, everything always works out. Because it always, always does.

  • This is for those who give everything they’ve got to make their lives as beautiful as their dreams... and for the friends who stick... for what’s real and what's not...
You will find them in the little things... and little moments. Now more than ever. 
That's when you know 💫 
Happy Palm Sunday 🙂
  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
