If you're looking for a place with nice beaches but few crowds, then Ciudadela is the place for you. Ciudadela is located on the west coast of Menorca, the most natural and, according to many, beautiful of the Balearic Islands. As you'd expect in such a setting, beaches and coves are the most popular things to see in Ciudadela. The beaches of Son Xoriguer, Cala Blanca, and Cala En Forcat all offer crystal-blue waters and definitely rank among the most important attractions in Ciudadela for both locals and tourists.
While summer is the high season, the mild Mediterranean climate means that you can visit Ciudadela year round, a particularly attractive option since hotel prices drop in the off-season and there are noticeably less crowds at most of the most popular places to visit in Ciudadela.
Of course, your list of what to do in Ciudadela should just end with beaches. The whole area has been inhabited since the Bronze Age and mysterious stone talaiots (stone structures) dot the island. A tour of the most famous sites like Naveta dels Tudons, Torre Llafuda, or Torre Trencada is definitely among the most interesting things to do in Ciudadela.
Of course, there are also plenty of attractions in Ciudadela proper. The Plaza del Born is the beating heart of the city and a good starting point to visit the best Ciudadela attractions like the Cathedral, the Palacio Salort, or the Town Hall.
