If you’re struggling to make your mind up on where to go this summer, don’t worry as we’ve got the answer for you… Menorca

Forget Mainland Spain; Menorca is and has been the hidden gem in the Mediterranean and in our honest opinion, the best of the Balearic’s. It’s unspoilt, glistening and idyllic beaches, crystal blue waters and friendly locals are some of the many reasons people keep coming back! It’s an ideal choice for parents seeking child-friendly fun and sophisticated grown-ups looking to escape the hustle and bustle. There is lots to do on the island ideal for any type of traveller- whether you’re looking to fly and flop or get up and go, Menorca is a no brainer. 

So, you might now be asking yourself, why should I choose Menorca?

We can go on and on and list the very many reasons why Menorca should be on the top of your list but here are some of the most important reasons why you should be booking your next holiday here:

Unlike its sister islands, Menorca resisted from the package holidays and nightclub tourism which has allowed it to say an unspoilt Mediterranean retreat. (This also means drunken revellers are far from a common occurrence on the island!)

Menorca is all about nature, it was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993 to protect its cultural heritage, countryside and stunning coastline.

Beach-lovers are spoilt for choice in Menorca – it has more beaches than Mallorca and Ibiza combined. Even during high season of July and August you can find quiet secluded beautiful beaches and have it all to yourself! The big waves up North of the island are ideal for older kids and adults looking to enjoy the water sports and there’s also the sheltered South coast with long beaches and shallow water, perfect for the little ones.

There are great towns and villages to explore in Menorca- Whether it be the buzzing capital of Mahon or a picturesque stroll around the whitewashed village of Binibeca, you can equally alternate the beautiful beaches with day trips to the many characterful town and villages on the island.
