The Mediterranean's best-kept secret!
With breathtaking beaches, luscious landscapes, and fairy-tale historic towns, Menorca makes for the perfect island getaway. Part of the Balearic Islands archipelago, this Mediterranean gem is less than an hour from Barcelona by plane. Its name translates to 'small island', and most tourists head straight for its larger sister island, Majorca, but let these 10 experiences convince you to try Menorca instead.
Take a walk along Cales Fonts in Es Castell
Located just a 10 minute drive from Menorca's capital, Mahon, this beautiful bay is found in the town of Es Castell. Peaceful and quaint, this harbour is the perfect setting for a relaxing drink or a stroll at sunset.
Relax all day at Cala Des Talaier
With its glassy water and white sand, this beach is not one to miss. Its shallow waters make it the perfect bathing spot for families with young children. Tucked away in the south of the island, this bay is rather secluded, but that's what makes it so special. Make sure to bring plenty of water and provisions with you.
Discover the hidden bar at Cova d'en Xoroi
Built into the cliffs of the southeast side of the island, this hidden bar is an essential stop on your trip to Menorca. Open day and night, this bar offers various drinks and a range of events from club nights to live music sessions. There's even a VIP area, but the sunset views are what really make the place feel sublime.
Visit the Ciutadella de Menorca
This incredible castle-like building is the town hall of Ciutadella, Menorca's second largest city, located on the west side of the island. Head inside the building to find the tourist information office, and don't miss the great views over the old port from the square in front of the building.
