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

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.

The apartment was in very good condition and well supplied with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Playas de Fornells was very pretty with beautiful views whereever you go. There were several restaurants which we tried and which were generally very good. Overall a lovely place and great for kids.

Your apartment was fantastic, great location, very functional, amazing views, and comfortable. It was very clean as well. We had a little problem with the fridge the day that we arrived. It wasn’t working properly but Gill took care of it really quick and sent someone to fix it. She seems very nice and efficient. We were really pleased.
