Menorca

Menorca

The laid-back island of Menorca has a more relaxed vibe than its party-centric cousins of Ibiza and Majorca. It’s the ideal place for a villa holiday if you’re looking for rest and relaxation. This eastern Balearic island boasts long stretches of white-sand beaches that are lapped by crystal-clear waters. Its capital of Mahón features a tranquil harbour and features plenty of shops, bars and restaurants serving the island’s signature dish of Caldereta de llagosta, or lobster stew. Further inland, explore the various hiking trails to discover whitewashed villages dotted around green rolling hills. Historical sites from the Bronze Age are also dotted around, reflecting the island’s colourful history.
