Punta Prima

An established favourite

Punta Prima, on the southeast coast of Menorca, is one of the oldest holiday towns on the island. You’d think it would’ve got too big for its boots by now, but instead the place has kept its traditional charm and laid-back attitude. And it’s still as popular as ever thanks to the white-sand beach, not to mention its easy access to the capital, Mahon.

Blue Flag beach

Punta Prima’s calling card has always been the beach. The clean sweep of white sand shows that its Blue Flag status is well deserved. And the locals don’t go anywhere else, which is a pretty good recommendation in itself. Warm, shallow water makes it a hit with children, and a flag system keeps you posted on how the current is doing.

Coastal walks

You’re on the right track for walks at Punta Prima. The town is on the Cami de Cavalls, or Path of Horses, which takes in 184 kilometres of mostly flat terrain that circles the island. The route splits into 20 sections, each one clearly signposted and with helpful information on what to expect. There are lots of little beaches for swimming stop-offs en route.

Days out in Mahon

Mahon has been Menorca’s capital ever since the British moved the title from Ciutadella in 1721. The Union Jack influence can still be seen in the Georgian houses near the harbour. Speaking of which, the waterfront is a lively hub of cafés, bars and restaurants. For culture and sights, Santa Maria church holds regular organ recitals and there’s a 19th-century fort opposite the port. It’s all just 20 minutes away by bus.
