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.

Every day is a magical day on the island

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.

  • Leaving Northumberland and back to Dubai!
Join me tomorrow, I will be in @uterqueofficial at @thedubaimall with @louisenichol at 4pm to 6pm, talking about how I turned my passion into a reliable and profitable business on @travelwithTJD @TJDHospitality.
In recent seasons, Uturque has been championing women empowerment by hosting a series of panel talks and discussions across the globe led by women who are experts in their professional field and it gives me great pleasure to be part of it.
  • A little gem in Newcastle...
Have a beautiful weekend everyone ❤️
and thank you @visitbritaingcc @wegoarabia and @visitneengland for designing an incredible itinerary for me and for taking so good care of me during my bucket list trip.
  • Northumberland originally meant 'the land of the people living north of the River Humber'. The present county is the core of that former land, and has long been a frontier zone between England and Scotland. 
Caught moments before the tripod tumbled and turned thanks to that slight countryside breeze 😊 
I travel for that breeze :)

  • Any Vikings fans here?? I’ve ticked a bucket list place! Lindisfarne – also known as Holy Island – is one of the most important places of early English Christianity. Irish monks settled here in AD 635. 
To get here, there is only one road and that is covered twice a day by the North Sea at certain time of the day. About three miles of road disappears by the high tide and you can’t leave or get there until the tide changes back and the road re-appears.
Many visitors will attempt the ‘Pilgrims Way’ the ancient route across the sands marked by wooden posts. 
June AD 793 was destined to be one of their darkest days... it was here where the Vikings invaders from Scandinavia first landed in England on the shores of Lindisfarne, and launched a deadly attack on the church and the inhabitants. You can follow @visitneengland and @visitbritaingcc to see more on North East England.
  • October has been a tough one, but things are slowly making their way back to alignment... and a road trip to the countryside helped me clear my mind! 
I’m happy to be working with @visitbritainGCC and @wegoarabia on a beautiful campaign highlighting what we search for when we travel, and, my search took me to Northumberland, the northernmost part of England. 
I’ve always wanted to visit northern England & learn more about the history of Northumbria and the Anglo-Saxon period. 
Road-tripping in the countryside the past 4 days has been an incredible experience! 
I’d love to know what is it you look for when you travel?
  • My heart is heavy. My heart is full. My heart is with you. 
Lebanon is not just a country on the map, but made up of stories of people you meet and homes you visit, food you share together, music you dance with together. 
I prayed for this day. But I didn’t expect to have my heart spoken by so many of you. 
We all may be living in different countries, geographical areas, and time zones but one thing which unites us all is that we all belong to one race which is humanity!
To the voices that resonated with me:

Thank you @eliefahed for the video

@ginoraidy I don’t know you, I don’t know your past I don’t know your future, but I love you with all my heart and soul and I will never forget you. 
I will never forget how you made us feel during the protests, being my voice when I couldn’t speak, the voice of many who had to live abroad for many years yearning to return home to stability and freedom. To give our children a chance to learn the language, to feel the warmth of the Lebanese homes and to have an identity. 
To the old man crying in relief in the corner watching as the world finally woken up. Thank you, I love you. 
To the soldier who couldn’t hold his tears when the people begged him to walk hand in hand with them. Thank you, I love you. 
To the brave men and women who stood against those against us. Thank you, I love you. 
To the mothers who left their children at home to protest on the streets for their children and mine. Thank you, I love you. 
To those far away with a heaviness in their heart because they can’t physically be there, but know that you are. We see you. Across the world. We see you. We are one and I love you. 
To @ghidafarhat who made my heart ache and spoke to truth on who we are not. 
Thank you, I love you. 
To my friends and family who has dropped everything to fly to Lebanon to stand in unity with everyone because every single soul counts. 
To the @lebaneseRedCross,  we see you, we feel you, we know you and you are Lebanon. Thank you. 
To my parents. My heroes. Thank you for giving me and my sisters a safe place to live in. Now, our generation will fight back on what’s rightfully ours and we will fight for you! #livelovebeirut forever
  • The Norwegian Vikings arrived in Iceland in open Viking ships in the 9th century and settled on this cold volcanic island in the north. 
All the energy of the world comes from the north, and you can sense it here. ‘The land of the Gods’. If you are anything like me, who is addicted to history books, fantasy worlds and photography, then you will love it here. A huge thank you to @hertziceland for supporting us on @travelwithtjd with a beast of a car the first few days because it just made our road trip so much more fun!
  • I’m lovin that bunny... (A little inside joke just because... ☺️) Thank you @dennisstever for the pic
  • “If two points are meant to meet, the universe will always find a way to make the connection... even when all hope seems to be lost - the journeys we take will define who we are and who we become. Across space, across time, amongst paths we can never predict, nature always finds its way. Trust the universe - have a little faith “ 💞

  • 7 days in Iceland and it was never enough! I can happily stay a lifetime here exploring and shooting. 
On our @travelwithtjd Iceland Series, we spent a couple of nights at @radissonblu1919 exploring Reykjavik during the day and the long nights!!
The rest of the week we spent on the road in different guest houses exploring many waterfalls, lagoons, volcanic landscapes, black beaches and tasted the Icelandic cuisine. 
We have few spaces left for our next @travelwithtjd trip in April 2020! Get in touch if you like to join us 😊#TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality
