Found in the south-east of the island, Menorca airport is situated around 5km south of the capital city of Mahon. Thanks to Menorca's comprehensive road network, you can travel around the island with ease. The drive into the capital will take around 10 minutes along the ME-12, and will be signposted as Mao.
The main motorway which runs through the city is the ME-1 and this takes you along the centre of the island - you can break off from this road to reach wherever your destination may be.
Ciutadella de Menorca, one of the main cities on the island, is around a 45 minute drive away along the ME-1. Arenal d'en Castell is along the east coast of the island and is a half-hour drive from the airport, along the ME-7.
Your hire car from Menorca Airport will get you around the island comfortably, but if you want to head out and explore on foot, be aware that any signs saying ‘Vado Permanente' or ‘Gual Permanent' mean you must not park there. These could be entrances to driveways, garages or an area which other vehicles must be able to access. If you're parking in a bay which has blue lines, this area is a pay and display. Spaces with yellow lines are reserved and if they are white, it's free to park there.
When driving in a hire car, you need to make sure you have the right documentation with you at all times. In Menorca you'll need a copy of the hire document, your driving licence and passport (or a copy). You must be over the age of 25 and have held your licence for over three years to be able to hire a car in Menorca. You can find more information on driving around Menorca here.

The 216km coastline is home to over 100 beaches. With crystal clear waters surrounding the island itself, it's no surprise these beautiful sands are a must see for anyone visiting this island. To the north, the beaches are quieter and, due to the northern winds, are better suited to those who enjoy a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing. With the reddish grains more common on the island's northern beaches and golden sands on those in the south, Menorca's variety of beach terrains gives you plenty of scenic retreats to choose from.
Son Bou, located to the east of the island, has one of the largest stretches of sand compared with anywhere else in Menorca – three miles of it. It's the ideal place to visit if you're travelling with family, as there are life guards which patrol the beach and there's easy access down to the sands. It's around a half-hour drive from Menorca Airport, just along the ME-1 northbound and turning south-west onto Carretera de Son Bou.
Believed by many to be the spiritual centre of Menorca, the shrine at Monte Toro has been a place of pilgrimage since the 13th century. Monte Toro is the tallest hill on the island, rising 357 metres above sea level, and offers wonderful views plus a courtyard and refectory.
A 30 minute drive from Menorca Airport along the ME-1 is the Castle of Santa Agueda. Constructed on another of the island's tall peaks, it's not clear exactly when the castle was built, but it was a vital element in keeping Menorca safe from invasion. A 45 minute walk of the castle ruins and the outer wall will let you experience many of Menorca's most satisfying sights.
Another sight well worth seeing is the harbour in the capital city of Mahon. At 5km long and over 1km wide, it's one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Take a stroll around the area to see ships pulling into port, or take a trip on one of its glass-bottomed boats to enjoy the view of the fish in their crystal-clear waters.
Whether you're here on business or looking to make the most of the weather, this Balearic island will provide you with fascinating history, captivating views and some of the most beautiful beaches around.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
