Often overshadowed by Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca is a real hidden gem that boasts its own unique heritage and culture. The island is also packed with a wide choice of gorgeous sandy beaches, making it a wonderful choice for families, especially those with younger children. 

Menorca

Spain

The destination

Menorca is the second largest of the Balearic Islands, yet it still remains relativity unspoiled and low key. This is certainly part of the her charm, and many visitors choose a holiday in Menorca as a quiet escape on which to bask on one of the many sun-drenched beaches and to embrace Menorca's rich culture.

The island is defined by two main towns, on the east coast lies Mahon which is the island's principle port and town. The cobbled streets buzz with activity, there are many boutiques selling local crafts, which include lace and leather goods, as well as a weekly market. To the west Ciutadella which is known as ‘Vella i Bella’ in Spanish (old & beautiful). Ciutadella is an extremely charming and characteristic town with a pretty port and an attractive old quarter.

All of Menorca’s beaches boast blue flag status and you can find almost Caribbean white sands and turquoise waters scattered around the island coastline in Menorca’s many coves and beaches. One of the islands most spectacular beaches is in Cala Galdana, which is a charming and picturesque town famed for its beautiful horseshoe bay.
