Things to do in Menorca in December

If you're shopping for some Christmas presents for friends and family back home, make sure you stop by one of the many markets that take place throughout Menorca. You'll find markets held at Mahon every Tuesday and Saturday, at Ciutadella every Friday and Saturday, at Es Castell every Monday and Wednesday, at Alaior every Thursday and at Ferreries every Tuesday and Friday. Most of the markets end between midday and 2pm, so make sure you get there early. You can pick up all sorts of gifts at these markets, from fresh produce, handmade clothes and local delicacies to souvenirs, artisan jewellery and designer goods.

When it comes to a night out with a difference, you can't beat the Cave Bar at Cala En Porter. Known locally as Cova d'en Xoroi Night Club, this club has been carved out of the cliff-face and provides the ultimate sundowner. During the early evening, the nightclub provides the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing cocktail whilst watching the sun set on the horizon, but come late evening, it takes on a completely different atmosphere. Local and international DJs take to the decks and have visitors dancing for hours on end. If you only get to visit one club during your visit, make sure it's this one.

Horses play a huge part in traditional life in Menorca. If you'd like to learn more about the local culture, see if you can catch one of the trotting races unique to the Balearics. Unlike traditional horse racing when the jockey sits on the horse, the jockey sits in a small cart behind the horse in Menorcan horse racing and has to prevent it from breaking into a gallop. This fantastic family-friendly event is a great method to while away a few hours if the weather takes a turn for the worst and takes place every Sunday morning at the Mahon Hippodrome in December.
