This Balearic Island is all about Spanish flair, sandy coves and spending long sunny days sunbathing on the beach.
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.
