Punta Prima Holidays

GENERAL

Long lazy days on the beach

For a Menorca beach holiday without comparison, look no further than a Punta Prima holiday with The Co-operative Travel.

f your idea of the perfect Balearic island getaway is long, lazy days on the beach, soaking up all that sun, then you can¿t go wrong with Punta Prima, which boasts one of the first beaches to be given a coveted EU blue flag for cleanliness. The gentle slope down to the sea makes it a great spot for swimming, while windsurfers also lap up the warm, gentle breezes.

Punta Prima, Menorca is one of the island's longest-established resorts, and can be easily explored on foot or bike, although it¿s a good idea to leave the two wheels behind when checking out the beach bars, which are terrifically laid-back. You¿ll also find a handful of souvenir shops and cafes to explore.

You'll notice that at the weekend, Punta Prima fills up with native Menorcans - surely one of the best testimonies you can have to its appeal.

Out at sea, you can watch the wide variety of birds as they drop in to visit Aire Island, a protected area due to its popularity as a stopping-off point on their migratory routes, as well as being a favourite breeding ground for the island's waterfowl.

At night there's likely to be something happening at your resort, but for a more varied choice, and faster-paced nightlife, it's worth heading the short distance into Mahon. It's here that you¿ll also find the best choice of shops and restaurants.

Punta Prima is still growing into its status as a full-blown holiday destination, but it's none the worse for that. Discover it before the masses do, on a Punta Prima package holiday or all-inclusive holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
