Unspoilt colonial cities
Menorca’s two focal points are Mahón in the east and Ciutadella, the former capital, over in the west, both with a classy, 18th century feel. They’re well connected, making exploring the little resorts of this go-slow island really simple. These hotspots are renowned for historic buildings and mouth-watering eateries.
Find your perfect beach
Menorca is ringed by beaches and, unlike some other Mediterranean destinations, they’re almost never full. The island is brimming with nature, all convenient to get around, with well-managed sands within walking distance of unspoilt coves where you might not see another soul all day. Sheer bliss.
Thrilling summer fiestas
Throughout the summer, there are traditional fiestas across the island, featuring fireworks, music, parades and most importantly jaleo – amazing displays of horsemanship featuring the famous jet-black Menorcan horses. It’s an interesting local custom to check out. The big ticket is the Sant Joan Festival in Ciutadella around midsummer’s day.
