Things to do in Fornells, Menorca

The Bay of Fornells is a fantastic, almost bottle shaped inlet, (overlooked by apartments in Fornells, but not those of Playa de Fornells, which actually overlooks the Bay of Cala Tirant), offering almost perfect conditions for windsurfing and sailing. Offering plenty of safe mooring, there is always an opportunity to rent equipment or have a lesson from a Fornells property. The northern coast of the island is also where the best fishing in Menorca can be enjoyed, and opportunities to head out into the Mediterranean are rich.

Fornells received patronage from King Juan Carlos of Spain, and quickly developed into an exceedingly smart place to be seen, especially in one of the world class restaurants overlooking the Bay of Fornells, down onto the beautiful yachts moored there. There is in fact no beach at the foot of the village, meaning that the cafes and restaurants remain a very leisurely place to eat, and ensuring that Fornells remains predominantly a traditional fishing village, filled with Menorcan charm. The seafood is particularly good in Fornells, and if you only manage to eat out once from your self catering Fornells apartment, the lobster stew is an excellent choice.

The conical Tower of Fornells has become an iconic symbol of the north coast of Menorca. It is one of the largest defensive towers in Menorca, dating back to the English occupation, built around 1800. There are some excellent walks from the village up to the tower, which affords superb views across the sea and the island.

Places to visit on holiday to Fornells, Menorca

The resort of Playa de Fornells is one of the newest developments in Menorca, and has been build with luxury and comfort in mind. Still largely unknown to the international tourist market, and therefore still idea for independent travellers wishing for a little peace whilst enjoying the finest of Menorcan life, Playa de Fornells enjoys a fantastically relaxed atmosphere. Water sports absolutely thrive from properties in Playa de Fornells, and the wonderful sandy beach is a huge asset for anyone staying in Playa de Fornells accommodation or a little further along the coast in a villa or apartment in Fornells village itself.

Weather in Fornells, Menorca

The winter winds in Menorca can be very strong, effectively closing many of the Menorcan resorts for the winter months, proof of which can be seen in the bend tree trunks of the Menorcan countryside. However, from early May until late September, visitors are treated to blissfully warm, dry conditions, with daily peak temperatures soaring into the low 30’s (˚C) on the vast majority of days.

Travel to Fornells, Menorca

A Fornells apartment or holiday rental property in Playa de Fornells can be found just 30km from Menorca’s international airport, the Aeropuerto de Menorca (MAH). There are many regular flights to Menorca from the UK, provided by a great range of airlines.

Abbiamo noleggiato un'auto e girato comodamente tutta Minorca. Nel complesso c'è inoltre una piscina a disposizione dei clienti,non c'è l'aria condizionata ma a mio avviso non serve perché la notte a Minorca si sta bene,ci sono stoviglie,posate,pentole,tovagliette,phon,asse e ferro da stiro,ventilatore,asciugamani,lenzuola,stendino;l'appartamento è a Platya de Fornells dove c'è la spiaggia Cala Tirant, ed è vicina alle spiagge del nord (tra cui Cala Pregonda.....fantastica!!) . Consiglio questo appartamento,comodo,centrale ma sul mare contemporaneamente,tranquillo,pulito,ben arredato .

                                                                                              4 of 5

El apartamento contaba con todo lo necesario, cocina muy bien equipada (aparte de lo habitual, contaba con pelador, rallador, batidora, etc) y todo muy limpio. Nos costó llegar al apartamento porque sólo encontrábamos la parte de la terraza, y no veíamos la puerta de acceso que queda por detrás, pero una vez localizada, teníamos el aparcamiento en la calle de atrás a pocos pasos y perfecto. Mencionar que íbamos con un bebé de 18 meses y en la zona hay muchas escaleras, e incluso dentro del apartamento hay 4 o 5 escaleras para separar comedor y habitaciones, e iría bien una barandilla para evitar que los niños bajen las escaleras sólos; pero vigilando no pasa nada... Por otro lado los jardines eran preciosos, pese a haber muchas escaleras. El dueño del apartamento me contestó por email al hacer la reserva de forma ágil y rápida, y muy amable; así como Gill, la chica que gestiona la propiedad; y todo sin problemas. Lo único que se agradecería es que no cobraran un extra por una cuna o trona...eso es lo que menos me gustó. Pero gracias a los comentarios de otros clientes me decidí a reservarlo, y volvería a repetir sin duda., así como lo recomendaría a quien quiera estar en una buena zona y un lugar agradable. Respecto la zona de Fornells donde está ubicado, es una zona tranquila. Hay un supermercado para lo justo, porque es muy caro y 2 restaurantes a 100m-150m donde se come o cena bastante bien. Destacar en Binibequer (un bonito pueblo para visitar) el restaurante El Faro, donde se come de maravilla con menú y un buen pescado y marisco fresco. Y sobretodo recomendaría visitar las playas de Macarelleta, Turqueta, Mitjana, cala en Brut, Cavalleria y Pregonda (si se quiere caminar), así como ver la Cova del Soroi a la hora del atardecer.

A really pretty, well kept urbanización and the appartment itself was fine and comfortable. Without a doubt the best part was watching the sunset over the bay...priceless, the most amazing views from the balcony. Definately worth having a car to drive around and visit the numerous and stunning cove beaches as well as Mahón and Ciutadela. Perhaps Tirant beach was not one of the best beaches we visited but even so perfectly nice. All in all great location, wonderful views, fantástic!!!
