Bus Guide

Bus company websites can be confusing for Holiday travellers - our guide simplifies and brings it all together for Island visitors.

Menorca Bus

Seasonal Timetables : mean fewer or no buses,single fares only... learn more

In a Hurry?

Bus Network

Good to know Services are reliable, cheap and comfortable but longer trips need pre-planning.

Menorca is different - the road network preserves the island's natural beauty especially along the coast where few roads exist. Menorca's Bus Network covers the essentials and is served by three autonomous ( but co-operating ) companies which can present challenges for the Holiday Visitor.

Buses from my Holiday Resort ?

Good to know Beach resorts operate Seasonal Timetables meaning there might be No services (Nov-April) or less frequency because most Resorts have few residents. Additionally the local Fiesta may affect bus times.

No direct Airport / Shuttle buses to any beach resorts only a Public Bus to Mahon. However Airport Bus no.10 is not a great Transfer option - requires a change at Mahon Bus station and possible long wait for services to your Holiday Resort - see Airport Transfer Options

Bus connections from your Holiday Location

Good to know Everything is determined by the limiting road network so you may well have to travel inland to reach somewhere along the coast.

The major Locations offer some direct services and with planning via Town Bus hubs to destination all over Menorca island. Find your resort below for your Bus Travel options:

    Airport Bus

    Can I get a Bus ( Shuttle ) from Menorca Airport to my Holiday resort?

    Sorry no direct Airport / Shuttle buses to any beach resorts only a Public Bus to Mahon. Airport Bus no.10 is not a great Transfer option - requires a change at Mahon Bus station and possible long wait for services to your Holiday Resort - see Airport Transfer Options

    Airport Bus to Mahon times and prices

    Beach Bus

    Can I get a Bus to Beaches? Yes with some planning. Certain Virgin Beaches have a special seasonal Bus service - Beach Bus Guide

    Good to Know

    Bus station = Estacio d'Autobuses

    The bus company websites show only the current period timetables. Actual bus timetables are usually on display at bus stops

    IMPORTANT the correct local name for Mahon is (Maó) which will be shown on localtime timetables,bus displays and signposts. Drivers will understand Mahon and saying Maó ('Maow') will win you a smile!

    Always carry change. Bus drivers can legally refuse 20 Euro notes and and above, so carry change.

    Most buses are Air Conditioned and have compulsary seat belts

    Mahon - Maó and Ciutadella ( Placa de la Pau/Place del Pins ) are hubs for their respective ( east/west ) ends of the island. Outside of the main tourist season ( November to April ), the buses will run less frequently or not at all to some coastal resorts. As mentioned elsewhere, to preserve the landscape there are practically no coastal routes so most journeys will involve going inland to one of the towns along the island's major back bone road (ME-1) where you will also be able to change for other destinations. Major changing points are Alaior,Es Mercadal and Ferreries - they are also good places to spend time in aswell.

    Children under 12 cannot be unaccompanied

    Cami de Cavalls

    It is possible to walk parts of the Cami de Cavalls coastal path using Bus stops. Use this Network Map to see what's possible

    Fiesta Bus

    You can really enjoy the Summer Fiestas by catching the 'Jaleo' Bus. Most Fiesta's car parking will be over-run plus drink drive laws are Zero tolerance.
