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 and couples. Away from the beaches, you can hire a car to go further afield and visit the huge harbour in Mahon, historic Ciutadella or the island's most secluded coves and beaches. The locals call this the Island of Blue and Green, as sparkling seas surround gently rolling hills. One look and it’s not hard to see why this jewel of an island has such a fabulous reputation.

13-29 °C

If you want long sunny days on your holiday, the best time to visit is from around late May to the first half of September.

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.

In Mahon, you can visit the Mercat del Claustre del Carme market near the Carmen Church, where you'll find all kinds of food stalls selling the best local produce. The market also includes handcrafted shoes, children's clothes, jewellery and independent boutiques where you can buy some excellent souvenir items.

On the other side of the island is Ciutadella, the former capital of Menorca, most noted for its well-preserved medieval quarter and cathedral. Have a walk along the picturesque port, or take a short bus ride to the beautiful coves of Cala Turqueta or Cala Es Talaier.

The island is home to some of the most photogenic beaches and coves in the Mediterranean, many of which can be reached via bus or car. The island also has what are known as 'virgin beaches', which are off the beaten track and usually much quieter than the resort beaches. Some of the best include Cala'n Turqueta, Cala Macarella and Cala Mitjana, which can be accessed via a car journey followed by a short walk, or even via a beach taxi boat.

A popular breakfast is ‘chocolate con churros’, a mouth-watering finger-shaped doughnut that is dipped in a thick hot chocolate sauce. For lunch or dinner, order some bondigas meatballs, fried squid calamari a la romana, delicious tapas dishes or international cuisine during your holiday. Don't forget to try a glass of Menorca's herb-infused wine, too.

Close to Mahon is the S'Albufera des Grau Natural Park, a scenic wetland with thriving marine life and birdlife. In the northwest of the island near Cala Morell, you can also visit the Necropolis Caves, a collection of 14 man-made caves that date back to the pre-Talaiotic era. You can find another striking cave on the southern coast, too, at Cova des Coloms, which is an amazing 100 metres deep and 24 metres high.

If you fancy a leisurely hike that's not too challenging during your holiday to Menorca, head to the summit of El Toro. It's the highest point on the island, measuring 342 metres above sea level, and is next to a 17th century sanctuary called the Verge del Toro.
