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

Not for the faint hearted if your self driving or even on a tour coach. The views are fantastic, nice tea room with souvenir shop.

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.

Great location atop highest point in Menorca. Fabulous views and good restaurant. The monestary is especially worth a visit and also a sit down and meditate.

Just come back from a trip up to Monte Toro. The road is very steep and windy and thankfully we had a hire car! Once we got there, the views were absolutley stunning and well worth the trip. We were lucky and there was only one coach there when we were. You get a feeling of peace and serenity there... More

Beautiful go on a clear sunny day and you can see the whole of the island. You do need a car to get there but it is worth it. Nice restaurant at the top and not expensive.

We hired a car and decided to visit the highest point on Menorca. We realised that we had visited many years ago. The views are spectacular and the cafe is very reasonable - €5 for 2 coffees and a Sprite (bearing in mind the tourist attaraction that this is). The church is dark but there was a man playing some... More

This is the highest point on the island, we drove to the top, its a very steep windy road, well done to those we saw cycling and walking up, I could not have done that in the August heat. Views from the top are spectacular, you can see the whole island and across to Majorca, worth the trip up if... More
