Travel Agent's ViewThe night life tends to be fairly quiet with visitors usually enjoying a meal or drink at one of the restaurants or bars.
Situated on the south east coast, S'Algar is a small purpose built resort which is ideal for those seeking a quiet and relaxing base.
The resort has a small man-made beach which offers plenty of sun loungers and shades (local charge) for visitors to relax. Just a 10 minute stroll along the coast there is a natural beach which has safe waters and clean sand with several bars and restaurants close by for refreshments which may be better suited to families.
There are plenty of activities available in resort, there is a diving school which offers a wide range of water sports including scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skiing and water skiing. Tennis, horse riding and bowls are also popular activities.
The night life tends to be fairly quiet with visitors usually enjoying a meal or drink at one of the restaurants or bars. Many of the hotels provide evening entertainment for guests with live music or shows.
The resort of S'Algar is situated approx 7 km from the airport.

Perhaps the most important point to make about S'Algar is that, for all the lush images of crystal blue sea that you might find associated with it, there is actually no beach here. I say this as a lack of sand could turn the resort into a disappointment for younger family members, whose little legs are too short to follow the coastal walks to nearby sandy coves.
But no sand doesn't mean no swimming in the sea, on the contrary, there are several smooth rocky platforms for soaking up the rays, complete with steps leading down to the water. And this being a rocky resort, there's plenty of fun to be had poking around rock pools, snorkelling and fishing. If you are a bit more adventurous, there's a diving school here too.
Sand seekers can stroll over to Cala Alcalfar, or further afield to Punta Prima - but I'd recommend Caló de Rafalet, a discrete, undeveloped cove shaded by holm oaks just to the north of S'Algar.
There are two hotels and several apartment resorts in S'Algar, all managed by the same Menorcan family group. I say this because, although S'Algar is simply a resort - there are a few glimpses of 'authentic' Menorca but that's all - the apartments are designed in pretty good taste - low rise, with sea views and plenty of open space. There's a little taste of Britain too, as the bowling green at San Luis hotel is where Menorca's Bowls Club meets.
When it comes to eating out, Asia pleases the palate without doing too much damage to your pocket, and the oriental-themed décor makes a change from standard tourist-focused restaurants.
