Disabled holidays in Menorca are the most laid-back and traditional of the major Balearic Islands. Compared to its neighbours Majorca and Ibiza, it’s been relatively unchanged by tourism, with resorts balanced by
stunning natural beauty, secret beaches and historic architecture. There’s still plenty to do, with two cities and miles of coastline to explore.
If you seek unspoilt, idyllic beaches and glistening turquoise waters then disabled travellers in need of accessible accommodation in
Calan Bosch and
will be spoiled for choice. No one is ever in a rush on this sleepy,
sunny island and relaxation is the buzzword here.
The perfect destination for carefree chilling out or as a place to spend quality time as a family.
Although Menorca has much more to offer disabled wheelchair users than accessible beaches and promenades, it also offers rolling countryside laced with walking trails, and tiny villages where everything seems to stop come siesta time. And you can’t go far without
spotting a sign for one of the island’s prehistoric relics. The deserted village of Torre d’en Gaumes, for example, dates back to 1400 BC.
When to Go?
Menorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and short mild winters, with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year.
Late spring and early summer are the best times to visit, when the temperatures are high, the chance of rainfall is low and the sunshine hours are at their highest.
July and August are the busiest months of the year in Menorca, so if you are able to travel outside of the summer school holidays, it's definitely worth it.
So if this has got you in the mood for a bit of sunshine, feel free to call us on

Situated among the wild, green scenery of Menorcaâ€™s southwest is the holiday hotspot Calan Bosch, a relaxed beach resort popular for its little piece of the coast.
The horseshoe bay is a beautiful place to spend leisurely, sunny days, and at one end of the beach is the much-loved marina, the resortâ€™s dining and nightlife hub. On Calan
Boschâ€™s doorstep are Menorcaâ€™s top family attractions, including its popular water park, Aquarock, that kids will love.
As purpose-built resorts go, Calaâ€™n Bosch fits into Menorca beautifully. What youâ€™ve got here is whitewashed hotels and
terracotta-topped villas that give the place that traditional Balearic feel. Its centrepiece is a smart marina ringed
with restaurants and bars, though the beach gets plenty of the limelight, too. The whole resort is accessible to wheelchair users making this a beautiful and varied disabled holiday destination.
Menorcaâ€™s liveliest destination is popular with everyone â€“ and youâ€™ll begin to see why at first glance. In this sunshine haven, relish in a
mix of activities for the youngsters, plenty of relaxing sandy coves, and fine restaurants for evenings of dining out. Itâ€™s a vibrant hub for all ages.
The restaurants really appreciate that children have a low boredom threshold, so as well as offering menus that pass inspection by the younger ones, they also lay on play areas and bouncy castles.
Disabled holidays with families and carers in Los Delfines are a must.
Es Castell is a charming seaside town on Menorcaâ€™s southeast coast. Itâ€™s a relaxed,
peaceful place that revolves around its harbours â€“ Cales Fonts and Cala Corb. These two
spots are where youâ€™ll find bars, rustic eateries and souvenir shops selling ornate ceramics.
Along both harbours, there are views across a sweeping bay, while a 15-minute drive brings
you to Menorcaâ€™s capital, Mahon.
The islandâ€™s British colonial past gives Es Castell a distinct character. The tomato-red town
hall on the main square once housed British troops and is now home to the Menorca Military
Museum, while the ruined Fort of San Felipe and the underground stronghold of Fort Marlborough
still stand guard over the town.
Thereâ€™s no beach at Es Castell, but itâ€™s just a 15-minute walk to Cala Padera. The coastlineâ€™s rocky in these parts, so this little cove has a V-shaped wooden platform to sunbathe on. Youâ€™re not far from a couple of sandy beaches, though â€“ within 20 minutesâ€™ drive thereâ€™s a broad stretch at both Punta Prima and the quieter Cala Alcaufar. Both come with sunloungers, umbrellas and tavernas.
Mahon is just 15 minutes' drive up the road. This is the centre of Menorcaâ€™s two
specialities - gin and shoes. Thereâ€™s the 18th-century distillery where you can try
free samples, and the Industrias Artesanas, a factory where you can watch fine leather
shoes being made.
