Not to be confused with Fornells, Playas den Fornells( Platages de Fornells) is a self contained designer created set of 3 dedicated holiday areas/villages. An impressive and very natural beach ( Cala Tirant ) which is very safe for children with shallow sandy bottoms. Clean clear warm waters make the area ideal for snorkelling with good local facilities for wind surfing and other water sports.
The villages are set in collections on the hill sides overlooking the bay with communal pools and gardens of tropical plants adding to the atmosphere. The bulk of the packages accommodation here is in a couple of hotels at the resort entrance and then small clusters of low rise apartments built in traditional menorca style.
Playa den Fornells is close to some of the North coast's most beautiful virgin beaches ( Cavalleria, Binimel-la and Cala Pregonda ) so you will be able to experience their pleasures easily.
Very natural unspoilt beach especially good for smaller children due it's gently sloping shallows into crystal clear turquoise waters. And while this makes it very popular for children it's big enough for those who prefer to avoid the little ones to find their ideal spots too!
The beach can be reached via car ( follows signs for Platges de Fornells from ME-15 ) or on foot from the resort using the well constructed wooden steps and walk ways.

A watersports and restaurant favourite.

More like a large salt water lake, the wind conditions here are great for beginners of anything that floats on water. Very pleasant for lunch time and evening drinks and meals alongside the harbour quay. Lot's of boat excursions and activities are based here. Perfect for a quiet authentic Menorca stay. Mountain Bike Hire. Watersports include Jetski,Waterskiing,Windsurfing, Dinghy,Kayaks and Diving.Hotels and Holiday accommodation in Fornells

Playa den Fornells Nightlife
Playa Den Fornells has three bars and a restaurant to while away the evenings with good conversation. with many more in Fornells Village. The cosmopolitan capital of Mahon(Mao) is closeby with a wide varierty of entertainments including a public casino.
As with most resorts in Menorca, evening entertainment here is generally to be found in the resort' bars but nothing that would ever compare to the neon jungle of the popular resorts along the south coast of Majorca. Mahon and Ciutadella however offer something for everyone, but with none of the "low class" to be found on Ibizia and Majorca. Menorca is NOT Majorca but that is why many people come here!
