Introducing Playa de Fornells holidays 2020
Playa de Fornells is a quiet beach resort town on the northern coast of the Spanish Balearic Island of Menorca. Nestled between ruggedly beautiful hills and the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, this quaint seaside town of traditionally Spanish, whitewashed villas with terracotta roofs is the perfect picturesque setting for a relaxing beach holiday in the sun.
Playa de Fornells is set into the hillside overlooking the S’Olla bay area, with stunning views out across the sea. Its sheltered position makes it ideal for a wide variety of watersports, and its calm, shallow waters make it a great location for swimming with small children. The town also boasts plenty of swimming pools, a number of beautiful local beaches and a clutch of fantastic restaurants selling traditional seafood dishes.
Playa de Fornells has just a few hotels dotted around the entrance to the town, and a number of low-rise apartments close to the beach. Without the huge hotels and apartment complexes – and the vast numbers of tourists that accompany them – Playa de Fornells has a much quieter and tranquil feel, which makes it the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
We offer a range of hotel and holiday types in Playa de Forells, including all inclusive.
