For a blissful holiday in the Balearics, look no further than the magnificent island of Menorca. More peaceful than the larger Balearic Islands, a trip to Menorca is perfect if you enjoy relaxing holidays that still offer plenty of culture.
Where is the best place to stay on Menorca?
In Menorca, there's a resort for everyone! The coastal resort of Santo Tomas is perfect if you want to relax by the beach and try activities like tennis and horse riding. Son Bou is a picturesque strip of golden sand and turquoise waters; very popular with families and friends who love activities, like jet skiing and scuba diving, as well as the entertaining nightlife.
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. Then there's Cala‘n Bosch, a modern resort on the southwest 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 hugely popular with families and friends.
A magnificent destination any time of year, Menorca enjoys sunshine every month. The glorious summer temperatures of 25°C are perfect for a spot of sunbathing on the beach, whereas the cooler months are ideal for exploring the peaceful island.
