|Punta Prima tourist information, hotels and car hire|
Some love crowds and thrive in the hustle and bustle of a place, while others want tons of elbow room and tranquility when traveling. Punta Prima has been described as a place that rhymes with space. Somehow, visitors get that airy and very spacious feel in this tiny paradise located in the south east coast of Menorca.
Couples and families with children will appreciate Punta Prima’s attractions. Hard to imagine that this full blown resort bursting in the seams with all kinds of family activities could actually be just 15 minutes from the airport. Families will love Punta Prima’s beach for its shallow waters – speak of peace of mind when the children go a-wading. But watch out when the white flag is raised. That means a huge current has been spotted.
Activities in Punta prima
We thought we’d mention this first if the husbands are wondering if the golf clubs should stay home or come for the ride. There are at least five golf courses in Punta Prima, and a few others being developed. So it’s true what they were saying about this place being a haven of space. If you can put that many golf courses in this strip of land, well, then…
For the wives who don’t golf, there’s always a fine white sandy beach or the tennis courts and swimming pools that many of Punta Prima’s hotels have. The walking is not strenuous, as the town is flat with not too many steep climbs and winding curves.
Four marinas are nearby: Torrevieja, Campoamor, Torre de la Horadada and Los Alcazares. You won’t run short of aquatic activities. If the teenagers are itching for a water park, there’s one just north of Torrevieja. Boat rides? Yours for the asking, daily!
Eating and Drinking in Punta prima
The seafood is great in Menorca, so Punta Prima should have something memorable to offer even the most discriminating palate. Hotels that are rated five-star such as the Insotel Club Punta Prima serves buffet and a la carte, and their Spanish wines live up to their reputation. It has a main restaurant, an Italian restaurant and a grill restaurant.
If you want just a quick bite, there are many bars and restaurants that face the beach. Feel like cooking and staying home instead? Then shop in Punta Prima’s two supermarkets.
Other hotels and apartment-hotels will have Spanish and foreign cuisines for those who ask for it.Want to try some bar hopping to wrap up your holiday? Then try these three: Anchor Bar and Sebastien’s Bar, both on Urb, Punta Prima, and Tenis Bar in Playa Binisafua.
