Thank you for the use of your apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, loved Menorca and will definitely be returning in the future, we thought Playas de Fornells was idyllic.

G & S 2014

We arrived back last night and had a wonderful time. Maremar is a lovely place and the views wonderful. We had such a relaxing time and managed to see a lot of the island. We've fallen in love with the island and plan to return!

A & J 2014

We got back safely to the UK after a fabulous week in Menorca! Firstly the apartment was lovely, had everything we needed and was in the most beautiful quiet area but still close enough to everything and everywhere we wanted to explore. The weather was glorious and it was so nice to have the pool to cool off in.

Thank you for being so very helpful with the area, apartment, car hire and info in the apartment too. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer holiday and break away and definitely would love to go back again. C and M xx 2014

We had another lovely restful week at Maremar, the apartment was spotless as usual and it was a much-needed break. Many thanks, D & S 2014

Ideal accommodation in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday; the accommodation is ideally placed for good restaurants, bars and the beach with a handy bar next door. Car parking is perfect with plenty of space for the hire car.

The kitchen is well equipped if you wish to self-cater and the pool could not be more conveniently placed. Overall, the ideal quiet holiday retreat.

From the Owner

Menorca has changed very little in appearance in the last 35 years since we first started visiting. We loved the north coast with the small villages and farms and thought it unspoilt, so unlike the Spanish Costas! We love the fact that you can easily travel around to different locations and beaches and swim in the beautiful clear blue sea.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Mahon at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bergantin Bar / Restaurant at 50 Metres Nearest Ferry : Mahon at 20 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Son Parc at 15 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Mahon Cuidalela Road at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Cafe del Nord/ Es Cactus/Okapi at 0.25 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Tirant (Platges de Fornells) at 1 Kilometres Car: not necessary


Our beach of Tirant is at the entrance to the village, which is a 15/20 minute walk away. It comprises a small sandy cove and a further longer sandy unspoilt beach with loungers available in high season accessed via a short decked and stepped pathway. Both are excellent for swimming and are safe as they are gently sloping with soft yellow sand. Behind the main beach no building is allowed so it is particularly tranquil, with wide views of the countryside.


Mahon airport is a thirty minute drive away. Car hire is recommended to make full use of what the island has to offer and car hire is recommended via pick up and drop off at the airport. Taxis are available at the airport for transfers and throughout the island. Buses run from Playas de Fornells to Mahon and villages and resorts in the vicinity, with connections to the whole island.


There are many beautiful unspoilt and serviced beaches in the vicinity. Fornells harbour and village 3km, Mercadal village 7km. Further afield you can visit the larger traditional Spanish capitals of Mahon and Cuitadella 20km approx each way. Smaller local towns include Ferriers, 10km and Alayor 10km. In summer there are many local fiestas held around villages of the island. There are many prehistoric and ancient sites on Menorca including the ruins of the Roman port of Santiga.

Further Details:

Several restaurants and bars (approx 10 on the development), including Okapi,Cafe Del Nord and Es Cactus with WiFi and two supermarkets within easy walking distance in Playas de Fornells. For an meal out try Can Marga at Ses Salines or the harbour side village of Fornells which is a five minutes drive (3km) away by car with a larger selection of a dozen or so bars and restaurants plus a bank and more shops, resort clothing and supermarkets etc. A ten minute drive (7km) inland at the foot of Mount Toro is the small pretty traditional town of Mercadal where there are even more bars, banks, restaurants and shops! Menorca is an excellent source for shoes, sandals and bags with several famous shoe manufactures based close by with outlets. Also available is a wide range of attractive resort clothing, costume jewellery, pottery, paintings and craftware; foodstuffs include Menorcan Gin, Cava, locally produced meats, wine and cheeses. The local towns hold market days and open air concerts in the Summer. Windsurfing and sailing is available in Ses Salines, Fornells and Addaya. The area is well known as a marine protection area and the north has beautiful countryside with small farms reaching to the sea. Kayaks, paddle boards, boat hire/trips and horse riding available locally. Spring and late summer are particularly popular with walkers and birdwatchers. If you are looking for a peaceful break try May, June, September and October! The island is in full swing during July and August but it is still possible to find a quiet spot, especially if you hire a car.

From the Owner

Our holiday home is in an ideal location. The sea is so close that you can lie in bed and hear the waves and smell the sea. Maremar has extensive gardens and the benefit of two swimming pools plus a baby pool. Our home is actually single storey, so although the classification is an apartment, it’s actually looks like a mini semi-detached villa!
