Cova d’en Xoroi
The Cova d'en Xoroi is a natural grotto or cave in Cala en Porter, on the south coast of Menorca. Locals told us about the Legend that a Turkish pirate sheltering there met a watery death.
It is open throughout the day for drinks and some music along with sumptuous ocean views. It then transforms itself into a very popular night club at 11pm with live performances and DJs playing all the latest club music until sunrise.
When we visited, we found the cost of getting into the night club was around 20euros and we got an alcoholic drink in the deal ( I should think so). Good Tip: Look out for special promotion cards in shops and bars around the island giving a nice 5 euro discount to the night club or if you visit the caves earlier in the day.
Great place to visit on Menorca as this place is a bit of a one off. We really enjoyed ourselves along with the club music later on in the evening. We are probably past the dancing bit now, but after a couple of gins, we thought what the heck!
Ciutadella, the former capital of Menorca, and a great choice for a night out and the visit to the local bars we found at the end of the harbour. There is something really special about Ciutadella that we love, maybe its all the different types of entertainment we found there. Can't beat a fabulous cocktail in a stylish piano bar, or maybe you prefer a bit of jazz or salsa? There is something for everyone.
Types of Entertainment
I took a look through some of the advertised entertainment and found local and international performers. Many people we met spoke highly of Jazzbah which is popular with both tourists and the locals.
You will find other types of music and even visiting DJ's playing all ranges of music, fancy dancing to a bit of house outside with a cocktail! The age groups of the visitors vary as much as the music does. Well worth a night out here if you're on the lookout to be entertained.
When we visited, we fancied some live music and were pointed in the direction of the Limoo Bar. Two floors with two different themes with either Indie Rock or to our delight some electronic music (how we loved the 80's).
At the Limoo Bar, you also get some terrific harbour views from the outdoor terraces. Opens at 11 and everyone loves there cocktails, beware, they are very good :-)
Port of Mahon
Port of Mahon is the capital of the island, is probably going to e the best place for those of us who want to experience the best of Menorcan nightlife. Ciutadella has its own historic style, compared to Mahon's more trendy sophisticated type of bars. What both towns do have in common though is the fact they both cater to a vast array of entertainment tastes.
Akelarre is just one of the stylish bars which also has its own concert stage for local entertainers and bands to perform on. This professional concert bar is well known for its live music. If you get a chance to visit, I recommend you do.
Another recommendation is Sa Falua. Just want a few drinks and soak up the atmosphere whilst sipping some of the best cocktails on offer in Mahon, then this is it. Sit outside on the terrace and watch the world go by. Open every day in the summer and weekends in the winter. We really enjoyed our visit and so will you.
