Welcome to the island of the gods and fabulous creatures! The north of Menorca, ‘The Tramuntana’, is the setting for many of the island’s legends and you can quickly see why. Wind and sea have sculpted amazing creatures in the black rock, which gives the coast its fascinating character.
But what would an island be in the Balearics without beaches? Menorca offers magnificent white sand beaches and the transparent sea invites you in for long swims. In the south, the ‘Migjorn’ are almost entirely surrounded by lovely pine forests and form a varied and unique landscape.
Savour the island’s most famous dish: ‘caldereta de langosta’, a lobster stew. The best way to savour this delicacy is on a terrace with a view of the sunset and a glass of white or sparkling wine - treat yourself!
Take the ‘Cami de Cavalls’, the island’s beautiful coastal path. You will be rewarded with magnificent views of the turquoise bays and charming zones bordered by fragrant pine trees. In the old days, the nobility and large landowners used to patrol this ancient horse trail to protect themselves from pirates and invaders.
The favourite Menorcan cocktail: the ‘Pomada’ - a Menorcan gin with freshly-squeezed lemon juice. The distillation of gin on the island is a legacy of the British occupation. The famous Xoriguer gin distillery in the port of Mahón is also worth a visit.
Former capital of the island: Ciutadella (in Menorcan: Ciutadella) is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Spain. With their many tapas bars, the superbly preserved, mysterious streets of the old town are inviting to walk around.
Lloc de Menorca: this is the name of the island’s very popular little zoo, located close to Mahón, where the visitor can have an up-close view of both local animals and animals from across the world. A varied excursion for all ages!
Calas: Menorca is synonymous with dreamlike bays - plunge into the crystalline turquoise-blue seawater lapping on fine sandy beaches worthy of a fairytale, surrounded by cliffs bordered by pine trees. You will find these delightful calas around almost every bend on this island, declared a biosphere reserve. Among the most beautiful are Cala Macarella and Cala en Turqueta in the south of the island.
This quiet little holiday village is located approx. 30 km from the airport. Accessible by only one road, there are only a few hotels, apartments, shopping centres and bars. Its long sandy beach is dotted with rocks, the background, a landscape covered in pine trees and bordered by villas.
Offering a large, gently-sloping white sandy beach with a view of the offshore Isla del Aire lighthouse, this seaside resort on the south coast is very popular with locals and holidaymakers.
This extraordinarily beautiful bay, one of the most fascinating on the island, is located between Ferreries and Ciutadella. With its crescent moon shape, you will not fail to be attracted to its white sand beaches.
The seaside resort and its little marina on the south coast of the island (also called Cala'n Bosch, Cala en Bosc, Cala'n Bosc) belong to the municipality of Ciudadela and offer good facilities for both swimmers and yachtsmen, surfers and divers. The hiking paths along the coast invite you to take long walks.
This quiet bay, whose entrance is guarded by an 18th-century fortified tower, is only 4 km south of Ciudela. Another particularity of this bay is a cave which used to serve as an apartment and workshop for an artist on the island and which can still be visited today.
Located approx. 8 km from Ciutadella, the tourist village of Son Xoriguer offers a fine sandy beach interspersed with little corniches. This locality is wonderful for family holidays.
Located to the south of the island, approx. 3 km from Ciutadella, the bay of Cala'n Forcat seduces with its small fine sandy bays surrounded by cliffs. What’s more, the many chalets add even more to the charm of the region.
