Menorca

Menorca holidays

Menorca’s charm is sure to leave a lasting impression. This serene island is blessed with dreamy pine-fringed bays, where you can spend lazy days tucking into long lunches at family-friendly restaurants followed by a sleepy siesta in the sun. But there’s so much more to explore. Due to its outstanding beauty, Menorca’s landscape is UNESCO-protected. Explore it along the Camí de Cavalls path or take a hike to the top of Monte Toro. It's also a haven for culture, with two fascinating cities Ciutadella and Mahon, plus 3,000-year-old monuments. In the evenings, night markets, harbourside gin cocktails and impressive sunsets set the scene for good times.

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. And there are plenty with Blue Flag approval, which is fab for families. 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.

Cala'n Bosch Holidays

Cala'n Bosch

Calan Bosch's lively marina at the centre of everything and a sandy beach right around the corner – these are just two reasons why Cala’n Bosch is a real winner.

Punta Prima Holidays

Punta Prima

It’s all about wispy, white sands and softly shelving sea here. Popular even with locals, the beach is particularly great, so grab yourself a parasol and kick back on a sought-after spot.

Playas de Fornells Holidays

Playas de Fornells

Walk original walls, play 18 holes of golf, and party until the lights go down – here in Playas De Fornells, you’ve got a lot of variety right at your fingertips.

Cala Galdana Holidays

Cala Galdana

As a calm, charming resort with a horseshoe-shaped white sand beach and family-friendly activities, Cala Galdana has plenty going on.

Son Bou

Life’s a beach here in Son Bou – and this resort is home to Menorca’s longest!

Cala’n Porter

Free of hustle and bustle, Cala’n Porter boasts one of the oldest beaches in all of Menorca, and it’s still a superb, sun-blessed pick.

 Cala Santandria Holidays

Cala Santandria

Originally an epic rocky cove, you’ll find small patches of beach for taking time out.

Cala Blanca Holidays

Set in a sheltered, pine-fringed cove around a fine, white sandy beach, Cala Blanca does what it says on the tin.

Son Parc

Cala’n Blanes

Spread across the rocky west coast of Menorca, Cala’n Blanes introduces you to a vibrant pocket of the island.

S’Algar Holidays

S'Algar

Head to the southern tip of the island to enjoy the endless laid-back vibes of S’Algar.

Es Castell

Centred around a lively square and former parade ground, historic links to Britain still shine through in certain parts of the resort.

Beaches

Menorca's beaches glisten like a treasure trove, and many boast gentle slopes that make them ideal for kids. Find patches great for water sports, or walk through forests to spectacular virgin sands. On the north coast, check out wowing curved bays.

Sights

It’s worth taking the time to visit both Mahón and Ciutadella – both beautiful old cities but each with bags of unique character. Think medieval towns centred on cathedrals, plus former naval ports. For a spectacular panoramic view of the island, amble up Monte Toro, or simply stick to cobbled streets.

Activities

Menorca is a treat for foodies, and the local wineries are earning a good reputation too. If you fancy something sporty, the clear warm seas are great for water sports – sea kayaking is particularly popular – or you can hire a mountain bike and explore the vast, epic woodland trails.

Eating and drinking

As you’d expect from any Mediterranean island, Menorca has fantastic fish and shellfish. The cheddar-like Mahón cheese is famous throughout Spain too, while there’s still a clear fondness for gin. Mix it with lemonade and ice for a pomada, or with soda and a lemon twist for pellofa.

Shopping

Menorca is more about markets than mega-malls. Mahón and Ciutadella both have daily fresh food markets, with clothes and local crafts sold two days a week. To stock up on basics, there are plenty of decent-sized supermarkets, especially near the bigger towns. So you’ll have every excuse for a spree.
