Plans with children in Menorca

Are you looking for a beach destination to travel with children? Menorca is undoubtedly an excellent option, since on this Balearic island most hotels are designed for family tourism. In addition, Menorca not only has fantastic coves and beaches to go with the little ones, but it also offers a lot of leisure activities for the little ones in the house to have a great time.

Today at Vuela Viajes we want to propose 8 plans with children in Menorca. Would you like to join us? If you plan to travel to the Balearic island as a family, the information that we provide below will be very useful.

Beach’s day

As you know, one of the main attractions of Menorca are its beaches, but if you go with children it is best to avoid the most isolated ones and opt for the urbanized ones, which offer a large number of services. Of course, you should know that you will most likely have to park a bit far from the beach. Among the best beaches to go with children we find Cala Galdana , Playa Es Grau, Ferreries, Cala Mitjana and San Bou.


One of the activities that children like the most in summer is going to water parks and, despite being a small island, in Menorca you will find quite a few. One of our favorites is the Aquarock Water Park, which last year made it into the top 10 of the best water parks in Spain on TripAdvisor. It is located in Cala’n Bosch.

Boat excursion

A plan that the smallest of the house will love will be to take a boat trip to visit the most inaccessible coves. Of course, the most intrepid and adventurous children will be able to explore the seabed by scuba diving and snorkelling . In addition, some boats that offer this type of excursion have underwater vision.

Kayak excursion

Another interesting water activity to do as a family is a kayak excursion. Logically, if the little one is going to go alone on the boat, you will have to opt for a short excursion so that he does not get tired. Of course, there is also the option for the child to share a kayak with one of the parents.

Horse riding

You should also know that in Menorca horseback riding excursions both inland and on the coast are very typical. For example, you can travel a section of the Camí de Cavalls, recently recovered , which borders the almost 200 kilometers of the Menorcan coast.

Visit the lighthouses

How could it be otherwise, we are also going to recommend that you visit the different lighthouses of Menorca. Believe it or not, children tend to love these types of buildings. The one you can see in the image is the Faváritx Lighthouse , which is surrounded by spectacular surroundings, although Cavalleria, Punta Nati and Artrutx are also worth visiting.

Prehistoric sites

Children are usually fascinated by history, and more specifically prehistory, so they will be delighted to discover the different archaeological sites that Menorca hides, which is the cradle of the Talayotic culture. Of all the sites we want to highlight the Naveta des Tudons, which is considered the oldest building in all of Europe.

Menorca Zoo

Finally, we want to recommend the perfect plan for children who love animals. We are referring to the Menorca Zoo, officially known as the Center Zoologic Lloc de Menorca. It is not very big, but children have the possibility to interact with many animals.
