Es Ventalls is situated on the perimeter of the small and picturesque village of Alcaufar on the south coast of Menorca. In a lovely, tranquil location, the villa is just a few hundred meters, a five minute walk, from the small, charming beach of Alcaufar with its safe bathing and great rocks for snorkelling on either side of the inlet.

Originally a small fishing community, Alcaufar is now more of a secluded weekend and summer holiday retreat for those lucky enough to have a house or villa in the village. There are no large hotels in the vicinity and it is not considered to be a primary tourist area.

The village has a small traditional family owned hotel and restaurant, the “Xuroy”, another excellent restaurant is the Picolo Mundo and there is also a small village shop.

The nearest resort is S’Algar, a five minute drive or fifteen minute walk away, which offers a good choice of restaurants, evening entertainment and a variety of water sports. In the other direction is Punta Prima, a ten minute drive or a twenty minute walk along a coastal path. Here there is a beautiful sandy beach, and a selection of bars and restaurants. Both of these resorts are tourist areas with hotels and all the attractions associated with such locations including a nearby water park.

Alcaufar is approximately 15K from the airport and 10K from Mahon, the capital of the Island. There is a regular local bus service between the village and Mahon which then connects to buses to the airport and throughout the Island. However, while dependable, the local service is infrequent and does not run at night.

Although not essential we do recommend hiring a car during your stay, not only in order to properly explore and enjoy our lovely island but also to help with the shopping !

The nearest mainline shops are in and near the village of San Luis which is a 5/10 minute drive away.
