Make a holiday apartment in Es Mercadal your home away from home

With HomeAway it’s easy to browse a choice of Es Mercadal holiday apartments to find the rental that suits you. The northern side of Menorca has some truly stunning beaches, with clear, turquoise waters and great opportunities for outdoor recreation. The hinterland is lovely too, and features the tallest hill on the island. Holiday homes in Es Mercadal have traditional hallmarks like whitewashed walls, wooden shutters and terracotta tiles, but are also full of upmarket modern comforts. Many Es Mercadal holiday homes include private pools and attentively appointed living areas, while also benefitting from relaxing sea views and peaceful gardens.

Things to do

-Beaches. The coastline at Es Mercadal has a very craggy outline, which means that many of the best local beaches are compact and intimate coves with gentle waters. For a long, sandy beach, follow the walking trail to Pregonda, a lovely sweep of red-gold sand punctuated by pink rocks. The islands offshore block the northerly winds, making it a lovely place to spend an afternoon.

-Outdoor recreation. Menorca’s only golf course is also close by. Golf Son Parc offers 18 holes and has views of both the coast and Monte Toro, Menorca’s tallest peak to the southwest. Alternatively you could hire a canoe or kayak to see more of the northern coast. The open sea can be challenging, but in between the headlands the waters are perfectly calm and clear. Besides, almost half of Menorca’s beaches are only accessible by sea or foot.

-Heritage. Atop Monte Toro stands the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Toro, a chapel built in the 1600s. This is regarded as the spiritual centre of the island and has long been a pilgrimage destination. Part of the same complex is an earlier defensive tower, dating to the mid-1500s. Not far from here are the ruins of Santa Agueda, a Moorish castle, dating to the early 13th Century, and accessed by the Roman road of the same name.

-Food and drink. One of Menorca’s top exports is its delicious Mahon cheese. This product is made from cow’s milk and has a relatively firm texture. The salty taste is a result of the salt content of the coastal grass on which the cows graze. The cuisine of Menorca relies heavily on seafood, and a prestigious dish here is lobster stew.

-Days out. From this central location, it won’t take long to reach anywhere on Menorca. Ciutadella is in the west and has a delightful old town, featuring an array of buildings that were constructed in the 17th Century. A historic bridleway follows the coastline of the whole islands – the GR-223 is a great way to admire the island’s scenery and access beaches that are off the beaten track.

Travel to Es Mercadal

No holiday rental in Es Mercadal is more than 45 minutes from the international airport at Mahon, which sits in the southeastern corner of the island (MAH). Relatively quiet in the winter, this airport receives lots of traffic during the warmer months, with services from a host of cities across Britain. By car you can follow the Me-12 and the Me-1 to the Es Mercadal area. There are also bus services to various resorts within the Es Mercadal region throughout the day from Mahon.

Would highly recommend. The pool area is lovely and great for kids and Son Parc is a beautiful area of menorca with a fantastic beach which is also perfect for little ones. Would definitely recommend hiring a car and exploring the island. Great holiday thank you.

Helpful owners from start of booking to end. Peaceful location. Bigger than expected swimming pool. Extremely well thought out flat with welcoming touches. A great place to relax in style!
