The first thing that came to my mind when they told me we were having some drinks in a cave bar in Menorca was: “I’d better dress warm, that sounds cold”.
No, clearly I didn’t have a clue what to expect. Let me show you what Cova d’en Xoroi really is like, and I’m sure that after seeing the photos you want to add this visit to your bucket list!
Cova D’En Xoroi in Menorca
When we drove upto the front door of the cave bar in Menorca, I already realized that my low expectation was going to be blown to pieces and that in fact, this place was cool, not cold at all.
In fact, it was so sunny, that I quickly borrowed someone’s sunglasses to be able to take in all the beauty that would be waiting for me right after going through the entrance…
Yeah, so where I though we would just be sitting inside a chilly cave, looking at the rocky ceiling and each other, the view I got right after the entrance was a different one all together.
Instead of inside (where some of the bars are and you can also sit), most of this bar is actually on the outside of the cave, build on wooden scaffolding right on the edge with the ocean. Sounds scary, but turned out to be amazing!
You follow a whole trail along the cliffs to get to the bar area… so very scenic!
Not in the slightest of what I expected! This rocks (literrally)
We got a couple of drink vouchers and a platter of snacks and biscuits and we only stayed in the bar for a little bit, so I can’t really do a review on the price and quality of most of the drinks and food here, but I must say that I LOVED the local drink “Pomada” that they served. It’s gin with lemon juice and it would be my favourite drink for the rest of the trip :)
I love it when you arrive somewhere without any expectation and completely get blown away by a place. This cave bar on Menorca is an incredible place to visit, so when you get to the island, don’t miss it! I can imagine on some nights it to be really busy, so perhaps arrive as early as possible if you want a seat on the wooden decks or on the outside-parts of the inner-bars. Other than that, cheers, have a great time and enjoy the sunset!
