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!
The beach, also in winter
The fact that the beach is only for the summer, in Menorca we do not apply it. It is true that the water has a lower temperature. And that cloudy days and bad weather can come out (read on to find out what to do if you run into a tramontana weekend). But the beaches of Menorca are splendid when there are few people . A walk along the shore after an excursion along the Camí de Cavalls is the best reward for your feet. Silence also accompanies: listen to nature, which is overflowing at this time.
The best time for sport
Menorca is full of roads and landscapes that, during the summer, are difficult to navigate due to the heat. It's time to put on your hiking boots and get a guide to the Camí de Cavalls. Or ask the staff of the Petit Ciutadella and the Hostal Ciutadella for any other route that they can recommend.
Live at the Menorcan rhythm
The good thing about staying in a hotel or hostel in the historic center is that you can blend in with the rhythm of life in Ciutadella. We Menorcans did not invent "slow life", but we have been practicing it for a long time. For this reason, we recommend you take a walk through the market square in the morning. The small grocery stores, the fresh fish stalls and the terraces of bars and cafes come to life with the greetings of neighbors and family. And it is that, in winter, the center of Ciutadella is emptied of postcards to be filled with much more authentic images. Places such as the Cathedral, which you can visit, the Seminari diocesan museum, go see the Cal Bisbe patio, or get lost in the streets of Santa Clara until you reach the Sa Muradeta viewpoint, are some of the plans that fit when the weather less accompanies.
Ask about the culture that you can also enjoy in the city. From the shows that are programmed every weekend at the Born theater, the small concert halls where you can listen to local musicians, to the new city museum, which will be located in the Can Saura building, a few meters from both the Hostal Ciutadella and the Petit Ciutadella.
