After visiting Mallorca or Ibiza, drop by the sun-drenched shores here on Menorca. More peaceful than its neighbouring island, you get to hear more birds than late-night dance music. This eastern Balearic Island has its own rhythm. It has long, sandy beaches alternating with its two cities, the Anglo-Spanish Maó and Ciutadella which is a complex maze of a city that is still mellow but distinctive of this peaceful getaway.
There are nearly 70 thousand km of stone walls that cross the hilly fields that run between the rural whitewashed villages. The following are some of the best things to do when visiting.
Half-Day Catamaran Trip
On this journey, you see the natural beaches and coves which are only accessible by catamaran. Snorkel in the Mediterranean’s clear, unspoiled waters.
