The wild and mild sides of Menorca are what make this trip to Lloc de Menorca zoo and Son Bou beach such a wonderful day out.
Set in beautiful, flower-filled gardens, Lloc de Menorca is home to all sorts of farm animals and exotic creatures. As you follow the paths around the ponds, you'll come face-to-face with frisky monkeys, meet friendly dwarf goats and get up close to everything from kangaroos and giant tortoises to porcupines and peacocks.
And as TUI guests, you can exclusively watch feeding time for the lemurs and monkeys. There's also a reptile house where you can have your picture taken with one of the squirming snakes. Spot lots of birds in the aviary, including some cheeky parrots hiding in the leaves, then round everything off at the children's adventure playground and a snack bar.
From here, we make the 15-minute journey to Son Bou – others take you to beaches further away. At almost 3km of golden sand, it's the longest stretch of beach on the island.
