Re: Moving to Menorca !! Long term rental required

If you choose to rent, make sure you have a contract. Without a contract you won't get an NIE and without an NIE you can't begin to integrate and live a normal life on the island. many renters will offer you a good deal, but for 'cash' - avoid.

Re: IPTV Boxes - are they still a thing?

But can I buy a portable WiFi device in menorca? As I don't want to use my UK data from my phone. One of the possible places that I might be moving to doesn't have WiFi Wi-Fi is simply a wireless connection to an existing local internet source, sadly you cannot connect to wi-fi as a stand alone 'th...

Re: IPTV Boxes - are they still a thing?

Let's clear this up. ALL streaming of subscription content - Sky and anything else like it - BT Sport and so on (not Netflix or Amazon Prime etc) - is illegal unless you subscribe to one of their packages, which we all know, you can't get here in Menorca. If you are watching any Sky (or other subscr...

Re: Moving with little ones

Renting before you buy is the best option although in your situation you will have to consider schooling as a priority otherwise you may find that by moving to sample different aspects of island life, your children might have to switch schools. The most important consideration is that living here is...

Re: Job in Winter

Employment here is very seasonal - even for a high percentage of locals, and a good number of expats who have managed to find work with the likes of holiday companies/villa companies also find themselves out of work over the winter. If you haven't already, i suggest that you cast your net wider than...

Independence demonstration

Some of you may have got wind of the fact that several hundred 'demonstrators' walked from Alaior to Mahon along the ME-1 today to lend their support to those who disapprove of the sentences handed down to some of the politicians involved in the Catalonia Independence vote. It was all good natured s...

Re: Proposed new flight-paths

Evidently, it is something to do with a new EU directive, so don't expect it to be logical or make any sense to anyone.

Proposed new flight-paths

The government has published a report proposing changes to the approach and departure flight-paths for the island. The intention appears to be to minimise damage to protected areas but the report acknowledges that there will be a considerable noise impact for many centres of population that were pre...
