As Menorca's newest and second smallest district, Es Migjorn Gran is a modest, rural town situated between Es Mercadal and the beach resort of Sant Tomàs. Located south of the island and 3 miles inland from the coast, this peaceful, family-friendly region is known for its pine-clad hills, charming architecture and authentic food. Explore Menorca's pristine countryside with its many hiking routes and unspoiled fine sand beaches.
Es Migjorn Gran is very much a traditional town with authentic Menorcan architecture. Unaffected by tourism, its pretty streets free of bars and nightclubs have a nostalgic charm. Catering to a quieter crowd, this humble resort is scattered with quaint cafés and traditional restaurants where you can relax and mingle with the locals.
The end of July or early August marks the annual fiesta celebrating Patron Saint Christopher. Crowds come to watch the parades of horses and dancing as the streets fill with colour and the sound of ringing bells. You can also explore more of the region's fascinating history in the old capital Cuitadella, with its Medieval quarter and Gothic cathedral.
For a chance to experience Menorca's nightlife, neighbouring town Sant Tomàs is just 7km away. Sant Tomás resort also includes the unspoilt Blue Flag beach of Cala Galdana, where you'll find a palm-lined coastline and plenty of shady picnic spots. Rent one of our villas in this traditional rural town to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing beach holiday.
