With more beaches than the rest of the Balearic Islands put together, and offering a much lower-key atmosphere than its larger neighbour, Mallorca, holidays in Menorca put the spotlight on relaxation. Red sandstone and rugged cliffs give way to secluded coves and sedate waters. Lush green countryside is home to olive groves and orchards and narrow cobbled streets tumble down to quaint fishing harboue
Away from the towns and beaches is a rural landscape and a handful of market towns where life is relatively unchanged. It is not difficult to find peace and quiet on a Menorca holiday, you are never more than a short distance away from a peaceful cove, pine wood or tranquil countryside and of course fabulous and locally sourced cuisine. Try the ‘caldereta de llagosta’ (lobster stew), ‘sobresada’ (sausages with meat, bacon and paprika) and of course the speciality drink of the island Gin Xoriguer (no translation required!)
Summer holidays to Menorca really are as idyllic as they sound.
