Make a holiday apartment in Platges de Fornells your home away from home

Platges de Fornells holiday apartments are in an unspoiled setting on Menorca’s northern coast, where development has been kept to a minimum. It’s a setting with rugged hills, hidden coves and beaches that can remain quiet even in July and August. Holiday homes in Platges de Fornells offer uninterrupted peace and comfort for couples, families and larger groups. There are private gardens, barbecues and pools, as well as interior conveniences like air-conditioning. Apartments in Platges de Fornells are ideal for those who want to get out and experience Menorca’s pristine nature, with adventure sports companies, a golf course and a natural reserve all nearby.

Things to do

-Beaches: The local beaches are sheltered and shallow, great for inexperienced swimmers and for younger children to splash around in. Cala Tirant is one such example, with a backdrop of rocky hills and low-scale developments. A beautiful natural beach nearby is Cavalleria, accessed via a walking trail and backed by sand dunes. The waters here are a little more exposed, with rolling waves that attract surfers.  

-Watersports: Menorca’s north coast is very indented, with deep coves protected from the open sea, so the environment couldn’t be safer for water-based fun. Kayaking is a wonderful way to see the coast, and there are a number of businesses that arrange excursions. Sailing is also available, and many of Menorca’s top scuba diving sites are located close to Fornells.

-Land-based sports: On land the northern side of Menorca is rugged, scenic and sparsely populated, which makes it a fabulous choice for outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Equipment hire and detailed information about routes are available from local adventure sports companies. Meanwhile, Son Parc, Menorca’s only golf course, is no more than 15 minutes from Fornells.  

-Food and drink: The traditional cuisine of Menorca  has a luxurious quality, exemplified by the classic lobster stew. This involves lobster cooked slowly with onions, garlic and tomatoes and served with slices of rustic bread. There’s also a long history of cheese-making on the island and several dairies to visit that produce the famous Mahón cheese, which is buttery in texture.  

-Day trips: Fornells is on the midway point of the northern coast, so none of Menorca’s mains sights are hard to get to. Not far to the east is the S’Albufera des Grau nature reserve, which supports diverse birdlife including coots, kites, ospreys, eagles and shags. For a dose of history, Ciutadella on the island’s west coast boasts a charming old town rich with architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Travel to Platges de Fornells

Mahon receives flights from cities across the UK, so there’s no lack of routes, especially during the summer season. After arriving, Fornells is a half-hour car trip on the Me-1 and the PM-710. Taxis are an alternative and are relatively affordable, while a cheaper option is to catch a shuttle bus, which may take a little longer than other modes of transport.

We arrived after a thankfully easy journey and was so pleased to see the location of the villa. We could see the sea! The villa was clean and comfortable and had a lovely homely feel about it. We loved all the quirky nick naks scattered around. There was everything we needed for our stay, beach bags, deckchairs, parasols and cool bags and even a couple of bikes! The kitchen was well equipped and there was a well stocked book shelf, tv and dvd player with a great selection of dvd's which the children loved at siesta time. Lovely location with local supermarkets and a great cocktail bar just a few hundred metres away. We had a fab time and will definitely be going back!

Everything was clean, tidy, organised and just as you would expect thoutful and caring hosts to have it. The pool was lovely and clean and the surrounding area clearly safe so for a family with young children - perfect! The only problem we all had was that the holiday came and went all too quickly but we all relaxed and felt very refreshed when we returned to England. Francis was most helpful whilst we were there, providing maps, clear directions and also advice as to good places to visit. He and his wife clearly take pride and care in what the do and at no point did we feel unwelcome! Thank you both for allowing us to come and stay and we definitely put this top of our list of places we have stayed compared to other properties like this. We hope to come back again one day!
