Menorca Bus Tips
Good to know
Best tip we can give you are Menorca's bus companies are very pragmatic, so bus services especially to beach resorts are increased / reduced based on visitor numbers! This can be the case in September / October.
3 'Seasonal Timetables'
Guideline only as these date are also 'pragmatic' and can change :-)
- From 1st to May 31
- From 1st to 23th of June
- From 23rd of June to September 30
However services are reliable, cheap and comfortable. Some trips requiring changes of bus need pre-planning timing wise.
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.Bus Network Map to download
Buses to / from my Holiday Resort ?
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
Beach resorts operate Seasonal Timetables meaning there might be NO services/less frequency to Holiday beach resorts (Nov-April) because most Beach Resorts have few residents. Additionally the local Fiesta may affect bus times.

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
Can I get a Bus to Beaches? Yes with some planning and pre-booking ( access roads mean only small Buses can be used !). Certain Virgin Beaches have a special summer season Bus service - Beach Bus Guide
Our Beach Directory will show you any available bus routes, how to book and pay
Busses - Good to Know
Bus station = Estacio d'Autobuses on maps etc
Current bus timetables are usually on display at bus stops
IMPORTANT the local name for Mahon is (Maó) which will be shown on Bus, local timetables,bus displays and signposts. Drivers will understand Mahon and saying Maó ('Maow') will win you a smile!
Bus Tickets - how to buy and pay
App MOU-T Menorca from the usual stores. It is so new and has 3.5% Ticket fees. Personally I would leave it to mature , plus yet another place to leave a credit card data set ?- no thanks, but your choice
Always carry change. Bus drivers can legally refuse boarding if you only have 20 and above Euro notes for Tickets that require a lot of change
Most buses are Air Conditioned
Mahon - Maó and Ciutadella ( Placa de la Pau/Place del Pins ) Bus stations 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.
Cami de Cavalls access by bus
It is possible to walk parts of the Cami de Cavalls coastal path using a Bus as the path always runs through a coastal resort. Use the Network Map to see what's possibleBus Network Map
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.
During Summer Fiestas special bus Timetables operateFiesta Bus Guide
Travelling across Menorca
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.
