Holidays in Menorca


For a blissful holiday in the Balearics, look no further than the magnificent island of Menorca. More peaceful than the larger Balearic Islands of Majorca and Ibiza, a trip to Menorca is perfect if you enjoy relaxing holidays that still offer plenty of culture. This island doesn't need to shout about its appeal; as soon as you step off the plane, you'll see why it's such a hit with all types of holidaymakers. It's worth saying that you might fall hopelessly in love with Menorca!

The glorious summer temperatures of up to 25°C are perfect for a spot of sunbathing on the beach before you stop at a local bar for a cooling glass of sangria. Or, for a more adventurous day, you can get involved with the thrilling beach watersports. You will be spoiled for choice with the fantastic selection of beaches on your Menorca holiday - there are over 100 on the island for you to enjoy! If you're keen to experience ultimate relaxation, why not visit one of the secluded bays and have a dip in the clear blue seas? When you fancy a break from the beach, you'll find lots of stunning Gothic churches, monuments and prehistoric remains across Menorca to admire. Grab your camera and head to Mount Toro to capture the stunning 17th century Sanctuary of the Mare de Deu del Toro.

In Menorca, you'll find the popular resorts of Santo Tomas, Son Bou, Ciutadella and Cala'n Bosch, which each have their own unique characteristics so there's definitely a resort for everyone! A holiday in Menorca's south coastal resort of Santo Tomas is perfect if you want to relax by the beach. Surrounded by gorgeous dunes, you can leisurely stroll through the pretty promenade and find a chic bar or restaurant to stop for a cheeky cocktail or a bite to eat. In Santo Tomas, there's also a fabulous choice of activities to do, including tennis and horse riding. Son Bou is a picturesque strip of golden sand and turquoise waters. Just imagine how good it would feel to kick off your shoes and dip your feet in the crystal-clear seas! Son Bou is very popular with families and friends who love activities like jet skiing and scuba diving as well as the entertaining nightlife. In the evening, you can explore the bustling bars and soak up the thrilling atmosphere.

Ciutadella stands out from the other Balearic holiday resorts. The former capital of Menorca, there are plenty of historic treasures to admire if you fancy embracing the local culture. Just don't forget your camera! In the evening, admire the Italian-style 17th century architecture as you follow the quaint cobbled streets to the harbour and enjoy the freshly-caught fish. Or, why not visit Mahon, the island's capital today. Then there's Cala‘n Bosch, a modern resort on the south-west coast of Menorca. An interesting way to see the resort is to hop on the leisurely mini train that runs around the resort and through the other districts. Bustling with lively bars and restaurants, Cala'n Bosch is also hugely popular with families and friends for its vast selection of activities, particularly beach watersports.

Things to do

As well as the obvious sunbathing, holidays in Menorca are the ideal time to enjoy water sports, golf, sailing, tennis and horse riding. For a fun family day out, visit one of the island's popular water parks. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful beaches, you'll find a good choice of excursions: Head to Mount Toro, with the 17th century Sanctuary of the Mare de Deu del Toro at its peak, or Mahon, the pretty island capital. There are Gothic churches, monuments, fortresses, prehistoric remains, smart harbours and Neolithic towns scattered around the island. For great seafood, visit the harbour town of Cuidadela or fishing village Fornells, or bag handcrafted leather goods and jewellery in market towns Alaior and Es Mercadal. There's plenty to keep sports enthusiasts, shopaholics, nature lovers and culture vultures happy on holiday in Menorca. Nightlife in Menorca is fairly low key. Many of the hotels have their own inhouse entertainment and you'll find a good selection of bars and pubs to enjoy in the larger resorts. For stylish wine bars and bars, head to the cities of Mahon and Ciutadella.

Food and Drink

Freshly caught Mediterranean fish is a Menorcan speciality, as are traditional Spanish dishes. Still, in larger resorts, you'll find a good range of international restaurants, catering to plenty of tastes. Many hotels offer half board or all inclusive options, so you don't even need to leave your hotel for dinner.
