Best Balearic for relaxation

Sleepy Menorca lives life in the slow lane of the swimming pool. It may not be as lively as big brother Majorca and certainly lacks the neon lights of party pal Ibiza but, when it comes to relaxation, there's no better place to lay out your beach towel than laid-back Menorca.

In fact, with such a sunny Mediterranean climate and more golden beaches than both Majorca and Ibiza put together, there really is no contest when it comes to sunbathing spots – beach bums take note. Families flock to Menorca because of the safe sandy shores with gently shelving waves that are perfect for sandcastle building and fish spotting on shallow snorkelling adventures. Many of them have received a Blue Flag for cleanliness too, so you can catch rays assured that the only thing your kids will be playing with are sand, shells, buckets, spades and the odd inflatable whale. There are plenty of long stretches for romantic evening strolls, in addition to secluded rocky bays for something a little more peaceful.

Another major draw for families is the short flight time. Just two and a half hours after taking off from the UK you'll be touching down on the sun-baked tarmac at Mahon airport – perfect for kids who quickly get bored of colouring and games consoles.

Places to Visit

Mahon

The capital of the island, Mahon claims (amongst others) to have the second largest natural harbour in the world. It also boasts a gin distillery, some wonderful craft markets and quaint little pavement cafes.

Ciudadela

Wander the cobbled streets of the islands old capital marvelling at the medieval architecture and Moorish designs. Gothic churches and the Town Hall Square sit among lavish palaces and taking a guided tour is a good way of making sure you don't miss a thing.

Somni - Dancing Horses

A musical and equestrian extravaganza and one definitely not to be missed on nights our in Menorca. Even if you are not a horse lover you cannot fail to be mesmerised by this enchanting show.

From water sports to waterside cafés

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 freshen up with a trip on a banana boat, explore rocky coves or have a game of mini-golf in the play area. And for a day of fun, families can make a splash at Menorca's nearby water park, Aquarock.

Port Mahon is Menorca's capital, where the streets are lined with impressive Georgian townhouses from the days of British reign. Its 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 so if you're looking for authenticity, here's the place. Menorca isn't without its share of culture. The pre-historic settlements at Torre d'en Gaumes and the Bronze Age monuments near Cuitadella, whose original purpose is shrouded in mystery, are both interesting visits.

Quiet fishing villages and bustling seaside towns

The island has plenty of resorts to choose from, from quiet fishing villages to bustling seaside towns. No matter where you choose to base your stay, resorts are well developed to cater for tourists. As Majorca is so small, hiring a car is a popular option. Why not base yourself somewhere sleepy and set out to explore the island's hidden gems each day with the window down and a cool breeze in your hair?

For somewhere lively, boogie on down to Cala'n Forcat where bars and restaurants are aplenty. Food-wise, you can indulge in all sorts of dishes here, from traditional Spanish specialties to more familiar home comforts. Cala'n Bosch has that typical Balearic feel, with its whitewashed hotels and fresh seafood restaurants. Son Bou is a family favourite on the rugged south coast and quiet Punta Prima is so nice that even the locals flock here.

Whether you are travelling as a family, a couple, solo or with friends, you'll find your spot in the sun in Menorca. If you want nothing more than to relax on a sun-drenched beach with a cold drink will be in heaven, but if you prefer active holidays you'll find plenty of activities like scuba diving, sailing and hiking.
