1. Re: waterpark

Firstly S'algar is not a town - it is simply a very small resort on the south coast so you will only find a handful of restaurants etc. there - see http://www.islas.co.uk/salgar.htm. For proper shopping you will need to go into Mahon or to one of the inland residential towns (San Luis is the closest to S'Algar)

Secondly there are no waterparks near S'Algar. There are two smallish ones on the west coast ( in Cala N'Bosch and Cala N'Forcat) and I believe that the splashworld water park in Arenal Den Castell on the North East coast is open to non residents ( see tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g672804-i12620-k… ) but none of these are on a scale to match the type of thing you might find elsewhere being really aimed at children and young families.

For an idea of distance please try using the route planner at http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=3476140491835266122,39.939126,3.962932&saddr=aeropuerto+de+menorca&daddr=Destination+%4039.939126,3.962932&sll=39.92694,4.08959&sspn=0.237479,0.63858&ie=UTF8&ll=39.926062,4.09584&spn=0.237482,0.63858&z=11 - S'Algar to Cala n'Bosch or Cala N'Forcat will both take over an hour to get to by car ( Arenal about 40 mins). If you are on a package you will be able to book an excursion to one of these ( see thomsonexcursions.co.uk/search-excursions/ES… for example of likely cost)

S'algar is not a town but a residential area and holiday resort with an original fishermans village with 2/3 supermarkets/souvenir shop. Nearest town is Sant lluis 5min by bus and further bus connections to Mahon - capital city. Without car, waterparks are not really an easy option I am afraid
