Villas in Ciutadella Resort

Located on the west coast, Ciutadella was previously the island’s capital until it was moved to Mahon in the 16th century. The bishop refused to move, so the old capital is still known as the religious centre and is home to Menorca’s only cathedral. Steeped in history and with plenty of character, the town is a maze of charming cobbled streets lined with boutique shops and bars. Head to the spectacular harbour where you’ll find plenty of restaurants serving great seafood. Ciutadella is a fantastic base to explore the stunning coastline.

Local Markets and Shopping

Ciutadella is home to a twice weekly market mainly selling local crafts and leather goods – ideal for picking up some souvenirs to take home. You’ll also find many boutiques and shops lining the cobbled streets. Larger supermarkets are located on the outskirts of town.

Bars and Restaurants

The stunning harbour is lined with restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy a lovely evening meal while watching the sun set and the boats bobbing on the water. Fanning out from the cathedral is a maze of narrow streets with plenty of restaurants and bars for us to explore. Many of the menus serve traditional Spanish cuisine but you’ll also find international options available too.

Beaches

Ciutadella is ideally positioned to explore the stunning coastline. Sa Caleta, located just to the south of the old capital, has a small but picturesque sandy beach overlooked by an old watchtower. The beautiful cove of Cala Blanca is further along the coast with some great restaurants offering lovely sunset views. Head north and you’ll soon reach the sandy bay of Calan Blanes as well as the rocky inlets of Calan Forcat – a great spot for snorkelling.

Family Fun

There are 2 waterparks within easy driving distance of Ciutadella, Aquarock in Calan Bosch and Aqua Centre in Calan Forcat. Both offer slides and pools, great for cooling off on a hot summer’s day. Lloc de Menorca Zoo is also worth a visiting, home to some native and more exotic animals. In Ciutadella itself you can arrange boat trips or even hire a boat yourself to discover more of the picturesque coastline.

Places of Interest

Just outside of Ciutadella is Lithica, a sandstone quarry with beautiful gardens and a huge, ancient stone labyrinth. Lithica does get very hot during the day but it’s a great place to visit during the evening, with spectacular sunsets and cooler temperatures. 

Just down the road from Lithica is the Naveta des Tudons memorial, Menorca’s most famous burial monument. Naveta (meaning ‘ship’ in Catalan) was built roughly 3000 years ago and takes the form of an upturned boat.

Be sure to take a visit to Monte Toro – Menorca’s highest point. The drive up to the top is an adventure in itself, but when you do reach the peak you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views. Or, nearby Cala Galdana is home to the island’s most photographed point – just be sure to take your camera.
