Menorca Holidays

Read more about Menorca

Boasting beaches galore, delicious food, and hot hot summers, the Balearic Island of Menorca is a treat to visit. So, whether you’re a couple in love or a family looking to take it easy for a week or two, Menorca is the place to be for a chilled-out break in the sun.

Beaches
Not one to be put out by its larger sisters, little Menorca still has its fair share of beautiful beaches, like the stunning cove of Cala Macarella, the pristine sands of Cala Galdana, and the picture-perfect Son Saura.

Food & Drink
We all like our creature comforts, but you’re missing out on some seriously good grub if you only stick to British classics during your stay. Enjoy queso de Mahón, a local white chees with hints of sea salt and paprika, oliaigu, a simple tomato soup popular with locals in the summer heat, or arroz caldos amb peix, a rich seafood and rice stew made with the catch of the day. And where drinks are concerned, try a spot of the local tipple, Xoriguer gin!

Culture
A way of life in menorca is the concept of ‘working to live, not living to work’- you’ll find locals going out of their way to help you and make you feel welcome during your stay but they do not define themselves by working. Instead, they love to focus on friends, food, and family- making the most out of life’s most simple, but rewarding, pleasures.

Nightlife
While Menorca is definitely quieter than the likes of Ibiza and Majorca, there are still plenty of places around the island to get your groove on and let loose. Popular night spots include the Bou Hai in Son Bou, Aloha Cocktail Bar in Cala’n Porter, and the seaside Moonlight Cocktail Bar in Ciutadella.

Things To Do on Menorca Holidays

Aqua Center
Enjoy a splashtastic day out at the fun-filled Aqua Centre waterpark! Boasting a large lagoon-style swimming pool, slides, and kids play area, the Aqua Centre is a great choice for a day’s excursion.

Lloc de Menorca
Take a walk on the wild side at Menorca’s premier zoo park, home to a huge variety of animals. Whether you’re getting up close with cheeky ring-tailed lemur in the lemur forest or catching the macaque monkeys swinging in their dome, the Lloc de Menorca is a firm family favourite with visitors and locals alike.

Mercat de Pescados
One for the foodies, the Mercat de Pescados (literally, Fish Market) in Mahon is one of the best dining spots on the island. Now home to a whole plethora of food vendors, you can tuck into tapas, paella, cheeses, and more during your visit.

Hospital Island
History buffs will not want to miss out on a visit to the Illa del Rei, home to one of the world’s oldest Naval hospitals. Over 300 years old, guests are invited to walk around the hospital’s grounds and learn more about Menorca’s naval past.
