Holiday in Menorca and enjoy mile-long sandy beaches and sun-kissed streets
Postcard Menorca is the second largest island in the Balearics and the third most populated, situated in the west of the Mediterranean between Algiers and Marseilles. Unlike its neighbours Majorca and Ibiza, Menorca is a peaceful, palm-tree fringed resort that remains largely untouched by tourism. Families and couples will find that Menorca offers the full package when it comes to a quiet and relaxing beach holiday. As a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, this sun-kissed holiday destination boasts seemingly endless beaches, charming whitewashed houses and lush greenery stretching all the way down to the coast. The island is dotted with golf courses, walking, cycling and riding trails, as well as a beautiful coastline offering a wide choice of water sports.
The elegant port city Ciutadella and Menorca's capital city Mao-Mahon offer traditional markets, Roman and Moorish architecture and harbour side restaurants and cafes with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Take a hike to the top of Monte Toro for panoramic views of the island’s contrasting red sandstone and limestone landscape. Here you'll find the island's tallest peak, home to ancient stone monoliths, wildflowers and local wildlife. Remnants of Menorca's ancient history can be found all over the coast, from Fornell's Bronze Age watchtower to the Stone Henge-style altars at Torre d'en Galmés, abandoned after the Roman occupation. There's also an ancient gin distillery - the last remaining from the 18th century, when Menorca was under British rule. Taste the refreshing Mediterranean version, as juniper berries mix with herbs, using copper stills that are over 100 years old.
