Escape the bustle of Mallorca and Ibiza and enjoy the slower pace of life on this sleepy island. Lesser-known to its livelier counterparts, Menorca is the perfect spot for a truly restful holiday.
Laidback, sustainable and beautiful
Menorca is the place to be if you just want to forget the world and fully sink into a life of laidback luxury. The easternmost Balearic Island is home to beautiful sun-kissed beaches, as well as charming cities and towns filled with talented artisans including painters, basket weavers, fisherman and cobblers – Menorca’s shoemakers.
We just love the lifestyle here. Who could resist spending the evening eating huge bowls of paella and sipping Spanish wine alongside crystal clear waters? Take a stroll though art-filled Maó to explore the colourful art galleries, or take a good book and wander to lovely Cala Mitjana with its sugary sands and shady pine trees.
Why visit Menorca?
- The island is home to beautiful coastal towns perfect for exploring and enjoying the sea breeze. Maó, also known as Mahón, is the alluring capital boasting Georgian-style architecture and fantastic museums, whilst Ciutadella is just as charming with its medieval streets, friendly locals people-watching outside their pastel homes, and the fascinating 19th century palaces of Torre-Saura and Salort.
- Menorca is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, meaning that it is still largely untouched. From preserved wetlands and farmland, to sun-bleached beaches and rugged dunes, Menorca is also home to over 220 species of bird and 60 endemic plants to discover.
- We simply can’t describe how restful staying in Menorca feels. During siesta the whole island stops, leaving you to snooze with the sound of waves or birdsong. Days are spent strolling between cafes and beaches, whilst the evenings bring long dinners al fresco and fabulous local wines.
