Keep active while enjoying Alaior
Tennis and Paddle
For racquet and ball fans
The Alaior Tennis Club is a federated facility with two clay courts, one artificial grass court and three paddle courts. Due to the growing interest in paddle tennis, regular tournaments are organised at the club. It is located Camí de Sa Beguda and among the services it offers are changing rooms and a court reservation system.
An historic love of football
Alaior’s football tradition is deeply rooted, which is probably why it has its own club with many fans. The C.E. Alaior club has up to 21 teams, some of which are female, and also indoor football. Most of the town’s population provides great support to the club. The main pitch is in the Los Pinos Stadium located on the old Mahon/Ciudadela road in Alaior itself. There is another football 7 pitch in the town, plus one in Cala en Porter that is open to the public.
Although football is the most popular sport in Alaior, basketball is not far behind. Alaior has 18 teams, including Club Bàsquet Jovent. The Jovent d’Alaior has female groups in different categories, with some that are recognised by federations. Training is conducted in the municipal Pavilion located in Mester Duran Street.
A trendy sport for young women
Our love for this sport in Menorca goes hand in hand with the successes of Avarca de Menorca, the volleyball club from Ciutadella whose team is currently in the women's Superliga with their players the champions of Spain’s Supercopa trophy. These feats have really boosted volleyball playing among young girls, so much so that almost every town on the island has a team. Alaior’s club is the Club Volei Alaior, with teams from children and upwards.
Riding and horse treks
Don’t miss the amazing experience of riding a Menorcan horse
The most emblematic beast on the island is the horse, starring in the fiestas and other important events. However, we also need to highlight our passion for horsemanship. In Alaior, you can enjoy riding at Club Hípic Alaior, where you can learn the secrets of dressage or jumping.
Snorkelling and scuba diving
Like a fish in the water
Do you feel like trying something new and exciting? On an island like Menorca, the best thing to do is to enjoy our stunning water. Either go snorkelling or go deeper and do a try dive with bottles. If you are already qualified in scuba diving, you can rent your own equipment and discover the depths of the Mediterranean for yourself.
Get around the coast in your own way
We realise that not everyone wants to go scuba diving, but there are many other ways to enjoy the sea. One of the fun options is to check out the coastline by Alaior on a kayak trip. Both the beaches of Son Bou and Cala en Porter have specialist companies renting kayaks, all you need is lots of enthusiasm and plenty of sun cream!
Alaior on two wheels
If you’re a keen cyclist, Menorca has many great routes to enjoy and bring you closer to nature. The famous bridle path Camí de Cavalls is the most well-known of them. However, let us introduce you to some of Alaior’s most iconic routes. Check out our Routes and Excursions section to decide where you want to pedal and discover!
