We hate to break it to you, but if Menorca isn’t on your bucket list, you’re doing something seriously wrong. This is one place you’ve definitely got to visit at least once in your lifetime. The lovely island has grown in popularity over the years, but it’s still pristine and relatively untouched, making it the ideal holiday destination – you’ll get more than enough peaceful relaxation perfectly mixed with a wide array of things to do so you never get bored. |
Without further ado, here are the top reasons to visit the magnificent island of Menorca. Villas, cities, beaches and more await – and you simply can’t miss out on them.
The Best Beaches
Menorca is known for its favourable weather conditions. The summers feature lovely, high temperatures and lots (and lots and lots) of sunshine. Even during the slightly cooler months (which are still very warm), the sun continues to shine brightly. What does all that mean? A beach day, of course! The beaches here are some of the best in the world and it’s easy to see why. With pristine white sand and turquoise waters in abundance, lying out on one of these sandy strips truly feels like you are in paradise.
Looking for something a bit more urban than the beach? Menorca has you covered on that front as well. The cities here are beautiful, fascinating and historical. A favourite is Ciutadella, which was the island’s original capital. The Old Town is perhaps its best area, and it features buzzing cafes, gorgeous buildings and lovely shops. While here, you shouldn’t miss a visit to the gothic Santa Maria Cathedral – you can see some truly stunning architecture here.
There are also many sweet, quaint towns dotted about the island for when you want to truly experience local living. They feature lovely cobbled streets and whitewashed facades, and are surrounded by lush greenery, pine forests, fruit orchards and wild flowers. Don’t forget your camera – these towns are far too beautiful not to snap a photo or ten while you’re there.
Top Accommodation in Menorca: Villas
When it comes to accommodation, you’ll find lots of suitable options in Menorca. Villas, however, are perhaps the most popular, especially among families and groups of friends as they have enough space to easily accommodate everyone. They are luxurious, spacious and give you all the comforts you could want from a home away from home. A Menorca villa is something you should experience at least once in your life and another great reason to visit this beautiful island – after all, if you don’t go there, you can’t stay in one!
Ahh, Menorca. Villas, cities, beaches… really, what more could you want from a holiday destination? Now that you know all this island has to offer, you simply must go – so update your bucket list and book a flight today!
