Known for its virgin beaches and idyllic surroundings, Menorca is a sun-drenched haven in the balmy Balearics offering harbour-front dinners, laid-back beach days, lush countryside landscapes and spectacular cities all rolled into one.

 

There are plenty of things to do on Menorca holidays, the major draw being the island's beautiful Blue Flag beaches, from popular hangouts like Cala'n Forcat and Cala'n Bosch to small sandy spots in Santo Tomas village and family-favourite Son Bou – the list is endless. If you're into adventure sports, trek to Monte Toro, the highest point on the island, for panoramic views of the island and the ocean beyond. The island’s rich history makes for great walking tours and day trips, too - check out the priceless artefacts of Museu de Menorca, a former monastery-turned-museum, or get a valuable lesson in the island’s military history in La Mola Fortress, a 19th-century structure built by the British.

 

Holidays in Menorca may move at a slower pace than sister islands Ibiza and Majorca, but that doesn't mean it's short of entertainment. Mahon and Ciutadella are the resort's nearest cities, boasting elegant restaurants, bars, boutiques and a real feel for the country's past – thanks to Moorish castles and gothic-style churches. Or if history and culture isn't your bag, hop on a boat trip and spend your Menorca holidays exploring the hidden coves and rocky caves that dot the island's outskirts. Menorca airport is located approximately 4.5km southwest of the capital Mahon, meaning you can find a great-value deal and pack for a beach and city break before you know it!

Lunch in Ciutadella

 

 

Lunch in Ciutadella

These days Mahon is Menorca’s capital, but locals refer to the island’s historic capital Ciutadella as Vella i Bella, meaning ‘the old and the beautiful.’ You’ll see why when you explore its cobbled streets. Old churches, traditional architecture, upmarket souvenir shops and tempting restaurants all make visitors fall under its spell. An enchanting city to explore on your Menorcan holiday.

Family Activities

 

Family Activities

Whether you’re away with kids or not, holidays in Menorca are not complete without a trip to one of the island’s two fantastic waterparks on the west coast, AquaCenter and Aquarock Parque. The fun in store includes stomach-flipping near-sheer drops, lazy rivers to float your cares away and entertainment for the under fives. In short, a day at a waterpark is a holiday must in Menorca.

 
Menorca Beaches

 

Menorca Beaches

No matter what resort you choose in Menorca, you’re never far from a beautiful beach to dip your toes in the water and feel the sand between your toes. Son Bou, Menorca’s longest sandy beach, has a pleasantly lively vibe, with its great selection of restaurants and bars. For a complete contrast, make the trip to the tiny fishing cove of Cala Binisafuller, an idyllic beach shaded by palm trees.

 
Food & Drink

 

Food & Drink

Punta Prima in the south east corner of Menorca is a holiday resort famous for its seafront seafood restaurants. Great, fresh food can be found all over the island so you'll find much oppportunity to eat like the locals by trying some delicious, healthy seafood instead. If octopus seems a bit too adventurous, start with grilled fish before moving on to squid - you won’t regret it!

 
History & Culture

 

History & Culture

In addition to Menorca’s beautiful horseshoe-shaped bays and tempting azure waters, the island is steeped in history and culture and is famed for its impressive prehistoric structures dating back as far as 1400BC. The island’s archeological wonders are dotted all over. Watch out for the 'Naveta' or chamber tombs (shaped like an inverted bread tin), the weathered stone ‘Talayots’ or rock mounds and ‘Taulas’ which are Stonehenge-like monuments.

 
Snap Favaritz Lighthouse

 

Snap Favaritz Lighthouse

Take your camera up to the Favaritz Lighthouse on the island's northeastern tip to capture blue skies over olive groves and views out across the spectacular cliffs. Menorca’s only mountain Monte Toro, at 358 metres offers stunning panoramic views of the idyllic island. There’s even more to see once you’ve reached the top, including a picturesque church and convent showcasing a large statue of the Virgin Mary.

 
Head for a Fiesta

 

Head for a Fiesta

Holidays in Menorca are incomplete without a festival. Make space on your calendar for the many fiestas that take place across Menorca’s towns and villages. The most famous is Fiesta de Sant Joan in Ciutadella in June. At this event witness beautiful horses and their riders race through the streets near the harbour. If you want something less energetic opera season provides spectacular sounds, or for foodies, there are plenty of gastronomic festivals to look out for.

 
Take a Gin Tour

 

 

Take a Gin Tour

Take a trip to the Xoriguer Gin Distillery, the last of the traditional distilleries still standing, to sip some aromatic Menorcan gin. The 18th century copper stills and bronze pipes give a sense of history to the distillery that overlooks the harbour. Located on Mahon harbour, the gin itself has quite a cult following on the island, be sure to sample some of the flavours, including chocolate and peppermint!
