The most luxurious and peaceful island in the Balearics is, without doubt, Menorca. The neighbouring island to Ibiza, Mallorca and Formentera, containing protected biosphere areas, declared by UNESCO as world heritage sites. The whole island offers magnificent gravelly coves, white sand beaches and turquoise waters, all bordering a wild and feral coastline which is as much designed for sailing as it is for enjoying the nightlife. There are around 30 coves where you can moor up and spend a memorable day. Get the most out of this offer and rent a boat in Menorca.
If you wish to indulge in tourism or spend a day on land, you can’t miss the capital of Menorca (Mahón) or la Ciutadella, the island’s second urban centre. You can visit the old town, go shopping or stop by the port and sample the restaurants and terraces it has to offer. Binibeca is a fishing town to the south of Mahón where you will find a beautiful corner of the island full of fishermen. To the north of the island there is the small coastal town of Fornells, which is highly recommended to visit in the afternoon.
For lovers of the sea, beaches and sailing, we can’t forget Menorca’s famous coves, which make this island the paradise of the Mediterranean. There are gravel beaches and white sand (some of them untouched) but all of them can usually be found in individual bays lined up one by one along the coast making a trip along this coast even more fascinating.
