Holidays in Menorca

With a vast array of beaches, from the small sandy cove at Cala Blanca to the horseshoe bay at Arenal d’en Castell, Menorca holidays are popular with families. Away from the beaches, hire a car to go further afield and visit the impressive harbour in Mahón or historic Ciutadella. The locals call Menorca the Island of Blue and Green, as sparkling seas surround gently rolling hills.

Prices start from £230

The southern coast of Menorca is ringed with the most popular resorts like Punta Prima, Cala’n Bosch and Cala’n Forcat. On the western coast is the old Moorish capital, Ciutadella, whose narrow cobbled streets wind down to the harbour. Stately Georgian architecture fills the current capital, Mahón, a legacy of British rule. Known as Maó in Catalan, this east-coast town presides over the deepest natural harbour in the Mediterranean. Head to the north coast to explore one of Menorca’s most beautiful fishing villages, Fornells, whose whitewashed houses overlook the incredibly blue waters of the harbour.
