Feeling a little sore after laying on the beach or around the pool too long? Take a visit to Monte Toro where it is bound to be a little cooler. In any case, you should visit Monte Toro at least once during your stay on the island. If you have binoculars take them with you to really appreciate the views... More

The view over Menorca is gorgeous from here. There's a convent at the top with a café and a couple of shops.

We walked up. The view from the top is good especially of the big bays to the north, and of Mallorca. There is a restaurant. Good for birds of prey. You can go in the religious site.

A holiday in Menorca is not complete without a visit to the top of Monte Toro. From the highest point you can appreciate what a small but perfectly formed island Menorca really is. Take a map and a pair of binoculars with you to spot the towns of Alaior & Ferreries and the coastal resorts of Fornells, Son Parc and... More

Worth the trip up with excellent views on a clear day. If you want to eat, the restaurant does a menu del dia with a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 4 desserts. This comes with bread, olives a choice of drink ( beer, wine, soft) and coffee. The cost is 16.5 euros and is very good value. Portions... More

Over the years on our holidays to Menorca we have stopped off at Monte Toro several times, and we have also enjoyed visiting. Known as El Toro or 'The Bull' in Catalan, rising 358 metres above the surrounding countryside, Monte Toro is Menorca's highest point and is a perfect place for panoramic views of the island. It casts a shadow... More

Pros: -Plentiful free parking -Picnic areas -Great views -Telescopes (€1) -Photo signs indication main sights -Monastery - entry by donation Cons: -Expensive bar/restaurant. Charges non-customers to use toilet. -Numerous masts with aerials and dishes attached spoils the aesthetics and views. Notes: take binoculars, food and drink.
