Think secluded sands, sheltered coves and chocolate-box villages.And if you do want to pick up the pace, Mahon is fab for shopping and seafood.
Enjoy the Balearic weather with a bit more peace and quiet on the island of Menorca. As the smallest of the main three Balearic Islands, it offers holidaymakers more of a relaxing break than its two bigger brothers, Majorca and Ibiza. However, it still has a lot to offer in terms of picturesque coves dotted around the bays, walking trails with ancient ruins, and enough bars and restaurants to keep you satisfied.
Cala’n Bosch is one of the more popular resorts on Menorca, and as such, you might want to pay a visit! Thanks to the year-round sun which the Balearic Islands enjoy, it’ll still be hot enough to sunbathe. There is also a marina in the local vicinity, providing a range of restaurants and some souvenir shopping opportunities. The beaches at Cala Galdana and Cala’n Porter are located further down the coast, and conversely, Playa De Fornells is the most notable beach resort on the north side of the island.
Strolling around on the island, you’re likely to encounter evidence of Menorca’s past dotted along your route, specifically stone monuments that even date back to the megalithic era. Take a walk along Cami de Cavalls - a restored medieval bridle path - which now connects almost 125 miles of Menorca’s coastline and coves together.
Menorca is an island in the Balearics, which lie in the Mediterranean Sea, close to Spain.
