Located in the centre right of the island, approximately 20 minutes away from Mahon Airport. Alaior doesn’t have much with regards entertainment for families and couples. You need to see Alaior as your hub to go and explore the other treat Menorca has to offer.
Firstly, Alaior is a very traditional town that’s been untouched by tourism, thankfully.
It’s a beautiful little town to wander around in the late evening when the sun’s just gone down. Known as the third city, after both Mahon and Ciutadella, Alaior is a nice change from the beaches, harbour and relative hustle and bustle of the two larger towns. However, there is a nice mix of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to keep you busy.
Located in the town square there’s a childrens playground to keep them busy, for you parents.

Unfortunately there isn’t much of a nightlife in Alaior. So your best bet is heading to either Ciutadella or Mahon. Alaior is closer to Mahon if that helps.
