One of the more peaceful and laid-back islands of the Balearics, Menorca offers azure waters, unspoilt landscapes and a quietly beautiful interior. Long golden sands, fresh sea air and stunning scenic strolls are just some of the simple pleasures which can be enjoyed here.
Mahon and Ciutadella, the island’s two cities are bursting with charm and photo opportunities. The former with elegant architecture, a vestige of the British occupation in the 18th century, the latter a maxe of atmospheric cobbled streets harbouring pretty buildings and the impressive Cathedral Basilica.
Of course, the main draw to the island is its beguiling coast, which is dotted with vast swathes of golden sand and secluded turquoise coves. Its extensive coast supports numerous water sports, from gliding peacefully along in a kayak on the crystal water, to diving below the surface to discover the treasures beneath.
Inland, don your walking boots and set off across the countryside, stopping at a whitewashed village here and a prehistoric relic there, drinking in the views at every opportunity. Working up an appetite gives you an excuse to head for Menorca’s fantastic restaurants where you can sample delicious tapas, seafood straight off the boat and delicacies which include baked squid and Xoriguer gin.
