Punta Prima Introduction

Punta Prima lies in the south-eastern corner of Minorca ten kilometres from Mahon. Transfer time from the airport is thirty minutes. Punta Prima was one of the first holiday resorts in the island chosen possibly because of its wonderful white sandy beach. It is a quiet resort chosen by families and older couples looking for sun, sea and relaxation.

Why go to Punta Prima

Punta Prima is a long established and successful resort enjoyed by many. Punta Prima offers a superb beach holiday with a good range of activities to entertain visitors.

A Punta Prima holiday appeals to those seeking a relaxing break. It is popular with families with young children who enjoy a seaside holiday without the hectic nightlife often associated with Mediterranean beach holidays. Punta Prima also attracts older couples. Wind surfers will find that conditions in the bay are ideal for this sport.

When To Go To Punta Prima

The holiday season in Punta Prima begins in April and lasts until late October with temperatures ranging from the twenties to the mid thirties.

Punta Prima - The Place

A Punta Prima holiday offers a relaxing break with white sands and warm shallow waters on a beach with Blue Flag status. It is worth mentioning here that special notice should be taken of warning flags. The off shore currents are strong and dangerous with rocks often hidden beneath the waves. The green flag means that it is safe to swim, the amber flag means that swimming is permitted with caution and the red flag means that swimming is forbidden. For your own safety and that of your children please take note of the flags and obey them. Pedalos are for hire and there are many facilities for water sports including sailing, wind surfing and diving. Across the sea from Punta Prima is the Illa de L’aire, an uninhabited island which has a small harbour for yachts. Here the clear water is ideal for diving. The island is home to a rare and protected black lizard and is also the breeding ground for many of Minorca’s water fowl. Other activities include cycling, coastal walks, tennis and mini-golf. The resort has one or two supermarkets selling essential items and a pharmacy. A short distance inland is the village of San Lluis. This has a better selection of shops and a market on Monday and Wednesday. It also boasts an airfield where visitors can take a sightseeing tour of the island in a small plane. A go-karting track is also found at the airfield. A mini train travels along the resort and continues on to the neighbouring resort of Binibeca.
