You fancy a getaway and a change of scene. And you fancy fresh air, nature, sea, life.
That is why you are thinking of reserving a room at Petit Ciutadella or Hostal Ciutadella… But the question arises: what will I do in Menorca if I cannot go to the beach because it is not summer?We are going to give you some tips and tell you some secrets to enjoy the island in the months when we Menorcans also enjoy it the most. Take a notebook and write down!
If you like nature, walking, playing sports and have already read something about Menorca, surely the name Camí de Cavalls sounds familiar to you.
This path, which borders the island's coastline for 185 kilometers , is ideal for discovering the natural and scenic diversity of this Biosphere Reserve. And with the drop in temperatures during these dates, touring it becomes a much more pleasant adventure. You sign up?
The wonders that Menorca offers on the coast are well known. But have you taken a look inside the island?
The prehistory of Menorca dates back a few thousand years. The rock, present in many of the human manifestations of all times, is the protagonist of this post, in the form of archaeological sites. You should inform yourself before the excursions to understand the context and the importance of these enclaves. But we assure you that a walk through Menorca 3,000 years ago can be a fascinating journey through time.
A marvel in front of the hotel
Today we want to tell you a different story. A story that, due to its location, is very close to places such as the Sagitario Playa Spa and the Vista Playa I and II apartments. But, for time, we have to go back thousands of years.
The Caribbean is closer than you think
If you have taken a look online, you will know that in Menorca you can find beaches that are quite close to the general idea of what the Caribbean is. Crystal clear turquoise waters and fine white sand that sparkles with the sun. Here, we trade palm trees for pines, it is true. But for the rest, the picture could belong to one of those exotic places that we dream of thanks to the cinema.
Well, stop dreaming. Because if many of our guests return to the island, it is precisely because of its nature. And, above all, by the more than 100 beaches and coves that cut the coast every few kilometers.
The good thing about staying in one of our hotels is that you have more than one of these dreamy coves just a few steps away.. They are Xoriguer and Cala en Bosch you have them five minutes walk from the Princesa Playa and 15 from Menorcamar. Cala Blanca, Sa Caleta, and Santandria are also a stroll away from the Spa Sagitario Playa, Vista Playa Apartments and Villas Sagitario. In fact, if you stay at our new hotelGran Sagitario,you have the cove of Santandria almost at the foot of the hotel. A pine forest separates your room from this small family beach that has services for people with reduced mobility, surveillance and water activities such as kayak rental.
However, the extreme beauty of the Menorcan coast can be seen in the virgin beaches . Those that flee from civilization and that are an almost mandatory option if you arrive in Menorca as a couple or with friends. It is also possible to go as a family, although we warn you that being undeveloped coves, you will have to walk for a while. And always carry everything you need with you: from sunscreen to umbrella, food and water to get through the day.
We could have started this blog talking about the wonders of Menorca. However, when you are introduced to someone, you first talk to the person before they show you their house, right? We will have time and space to show you our island. So let's start with the introductions.
What would the landscape of Menorca be without the people who leave their soul to work the land every day? At Sagitario Hotels we have three llocs, or farms, from which we obtain fresh, local and seasonal produce that we then serve in our restaurants and bars.

"Do I need a PCR?" "What will they ask me when I arrive at the airport?" "What is allowed to do in the hotel?"
