Menorca spa & health
Holiday’s are good for your health. Especially in Menorca. On this laid back island in perfect harmony with nature you will find plenty of places to relax your mind and massage your body. Beauty treatments, holistic therapies, health spas, hair and nail centres… everything from the conventional to new age.
Did you know?• We are told that some locals smear their bodies with the unusually red coloured sand at Cala Cavalleria. Then lie in the sun until it bakes dry. They claim it is wonderful for the skin.
• At dusk, some young free spirits often climb to the top of an ancient stone Talaiot to sit and meditate, or play guitars or bongos to accompany the setting sun.
• The world’s oldest man came from Menorca. Joan Riudavets died at the ripe old age of 114 in 2004, from natural causes.
Top tips• Wherever you go, always take plenty of bottled water, especially on the beach in summer. Regular sips are better than long drinks for good hydration.
• Do as the locals do on hot summer days and take a long lunchbreak followed by a longer siesta in the afternoon.
• There are good Health and Beauty Spa's in many main resorts and towns. Some are privately run and some within hotels such as those in Mahon, Port Ciutadella, Punta Prima, Son Xoriguer, Cala Galdana and Sant Tomas.
