Holiday location

Alua illa de Menorca map

Local Area

The resort of S’Algar stands on a rocky headland known for its coves, capes and islets. It’s a pretty, peaceful place with a scattering of bars and restaurants, all easily reached from the hotel along the long, level promenade. Walkers love heading off on the Cami de Cavalls walking trail - a famous bridlepath that encircles the whole island which is easily reached from the hotel.

We are delighted to welcome back the Hotel Alua Illa de Menorca, previously known as the Hotel San Luis. S'Algar has long been a favourite of Saga guests with its extensive leisure options including tennis courts, bowling greens and great walking on the nearby Cami de Cavalls, the bridle path that encircles the island. The new owners, AM Resorts, have refurbished and further improved the hotel interiors.

Included excursions

Cala Morelle, Prehistoric Necropoli

1/11

We’ll walk back in time on this excursion to see the extraordinary Bronze-Age necropolis carved into cliffs above Cala Morelle on Minorca’s north coast. The caves are thought to have been used for ritual burials and are remarkably well preserved, some with columns and windows, and alcoves used to hold torches or offerings during the ceremonies.
