Playas de Fornells is considered by many to be one of the most attractive developments in Menorca. The elegant villas of Payas de Fornells, built in the distinctive local style are served by a small local beach which is connected by a footpath to the larger beach at Cala Tirant.
It has supermarkets, bars, excellent restaurants and is the perfect place to relax and take it easy.
Steep streets climb from one side of the beach, meandering through attractive developments of private and holiday villas with pretty gardens and fine views.
Playas De Fornells is on the North coast, (15 mls NW of Mahon, 17 mls NW of the airport). It is found clinging to one side of a rugged inlet, facing gently rolling countryside and rather barren coastal plateau.
This purpose-built resort in the style of a Spanish fishing village is rather clinical, with an artificial atmosphere.
Shopping here is the bare essentials, though Fornells village has a handful of souvenir shops and specialist stores.
