You’ll quickly fall in love with the Spanish Balearic Island of Menorca! Known for its beautiful, endless beaches, reliably brilliant weather and mouth-watering cuisine, your holiday here can be spent exploring the easternmost Balearic Island on a scenic boat trip, strolling through its quaint, traditional villages or even adventuring by kayak or horseback…
And of course, the entire island is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, so you’re pretty much promised outstanding natural beauties.
As one of our all-time favourite holiday destinations, we’re sharing our top five reasons why you should visit sun-kissed Menorca, no matter the time of year!
1) Gorgeous climate
Menorca’s fantastic climate makes the island desirable all-year round. With summer temperatures in the mid 30’s, and winter temperatures around 14*C, the island is a great destination across the seasons. If you’re craving a dose of sun and vitamin D, the summer months provide up to 13 hours of sun daily, while the winter still boasts a satisfying six hours each day! So whether you desire a fun-filled family escape or quiet, off-peak romantic retreat for two, the island’s got you covered.
2) Magical Mahón
The Menorcan capital of Mahón oozes charm and tranquility. Why not take a boat tour around the harbour here, gazing at the island’s beautiful scenery to the sound of lapping sea waters? Onland, you can explore the city’s array of cafes, restaurants and bars and visit the art-filled mansion Centre d’Art I d’Historia Hernandez Sanz at Ca n’Oliver. A relaxing day can easily be spent in the city of Mahón at any time of year, with local attractions great inside and out, such as the popular Museu de Menorca museum.
3) Glorious beaches
Mesmerising Menorca is home to miles-long sandy beaches, boasting beautiful turquoise-water bays. In fact, the island boasts more beaches than Ibiza and Mallorca put together! From large, busy beaches, such as Punta Prime Beach on the south east coast, to quieter, more secluded sands, such as Santa Tomas Beach, west of Son Bou village, the perfect beach is waiting for you.
Cala Macarella is a stunning beach and favourite of ours, located on the south west coast of Menorca, around 10 miles from Ciutadella. Boasting soft, white sands and clear waters, the beach is home to a smaller cove too, known as Macarelleta. Most of Menorca’s beaches are completely family-friendly (with a handful of Blue Flag beaches too), providing helpful facilities such as showers and toilets, as well as nearby cafes and restaurants. Kick back and relax and make the most of a blissful island escape…
4) A charming cathedral
Located in the old part of Menorca in Cathedral Square, the Ciutadella de Menorca Cathedral is a brilliant place to explore on your holiday to the island. The 13th century gothic-style church stands impressively in the square. Step away from the sun-lounger and pool and explore what sun-drenched Menorca has to offer! With its rich history, you’ll find an array of archaeological remains and monuments here.
5) An ancient tomb
On your Menorcan getaway, a visit to the remarkable Naveta d’Es Tudons, located five kilometres from the town of Cuitadella on the western part of the island, is a must! The impressive megalithic chamber tomb is fascinating to explore and has quickly grown to become one of the most popular monuments on the island…
