Holidays to Menorca
Unlike its flashier Balearic Islands neighbours, Menorca is blissfully peaceful in comparison. This jewel of an island in the Mediterranean Sea boasts lovely beaches, isolated coves, and rocky headlands along the coast, gentle green hills inland, and a number of intriguing prehistoric archaeological sites and protected natural areas. This is the perfect holiday destination for those looking for some outdoor adventures and a bit of ancient history.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Menorca
When it comes to beaches, Menorca does not disappoint. On the south coast it is easy to find charming whitewashed villages that look out over golden sandy bays with aquamarine waters. This is where some of Menorca’s most attractive resorts can be found. For those looking for a bit more seclusion, the north coast is the place to be. This rugged stretch of coastline features rocky bays and small beaches, quaint fishing villages, and invigorating breezes that blow in from the sea. Windsurfing is particularly popular in this part of Menorca.
Menorca has been settled since approximately 2000 BC, so it should come as no surprise that history buffs rave about the island. Here visitors can explore one of the many prehistoric Bronze and Iron Age sites with ancient stone altars, tombs, watchtowers, and dwellings. The island also has a long history of British and Spanish power struggles, which is evident in the different types of architecture that can be found in the capital city of Mao and beyond.
Nature lovers on a holiday to Menorca will want to take a trip to the Biosphere Reserve, a protected park with wetlands, sand dunes, oak trees, and an abundance of native flora and fauna. The S’Albufera des Grau Natural Park is home to a sizeable freshwater lagoon, and is a great place to do some bird watching or simply stroll along the man-made trails. The trails here range from easy walks along the beach to challenging treks up rocky cliffs.
