Menorca is the second-largest island in Spain’s Balearic archipelago, located 200 km off the coast of Barcelona. It is less developed than Majorca and has more sandy beaches than Majorca and Ibiza put together. There are miles of secluded beach inlets as well as excellent beach resorts which cater to your every whim. Wander down sun-drenched cobbled pathways past fragrant bougainvillea to reach seaside harbours lined with fantastic bars and restaurants, and you will understand why holidays to Menorca are so popular.

Whether you are travelling as a family, a couple, solo or with friends, there is something for you in Menorca. Those who want nothing more than to relax on a sun-drenched beach with a cold drink will be in heaven, and there is no shortage of secluded sandy coves for those who prefer a private place to relax or play. Those who favour active holidays will find plenty of activities like scuba diving and sailing as well as walking in the lush green countryside and exploring mysterious ancient monuments.

Culture and sublime cuisine...

Port Mahon is Menorca’s capital, where the streets are lined with impressive Georgian townhouses from the days of British occupation in the 18th century. The sparkling harbour is lined with cafés and restaurants, so order a drink and pull up a chair to people-watch in the glorious sunshine. Menorca's second town Cuitadella has a much more Moorish and Spanish influence in its architecture and a buzzing nightlife.

If you want to experience Menorca’s party scene, Cala’n Forcat features a good selection of bars and restaurants as well as discos, karaoke bars and nightclubs. The restaurants in Cala’n Forcat offer a wide range of options, from traditional Spanish dishes to more British fare.

Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful coves in the western Mediterranean, the long sweeping bay of Cala Galdana is sheltered by high limestone cliffs and shaded by pine trees, making it the ideal spot for an afternoon siesta. After soaking up the sun you can choose from many water sports on offer. Families with young children will enjoy the resort’s play area featuring water slides and mini-golf. For a day of fun, families can head to Menorca’s nearby water park, Aquarock.

Did you know? Menorca has a rich culture and history. Make sure not to miss the remnants of pre-historic settlements at Torre d’en Gaumes and Bronze Age monuments near Cuitadella, whose original purpose is shrouded in mystery.
