Known as the ‘Jewel of the Balearics’, Menorca will have you falling in love and wanting to return again and again. Our villas in Menorca are located to make the most out of the 200km coastline featuring pristine sandy beaches separated by rocky headlands, as well as the island’s lush and green interior with pine-covered hills. Highly popular for families, Menorca villa holidays offer a great range of things to see and do, from beautiful buildings to attractive villages and an array of walking and cycling opportunities to capture your imagination.
Menorca is undoubtedly known for its wealth of stunning beaches. But dig a little deeper on your Menorca villa holiday and you’ll uncover the natural beauty of the island’s inner scenery of lush pine forests brimming with wildlife. Cycling and hiking can be enjoyed on the Cami de Cavalls – this path encircles the entire island offering sublime views along the way.
With over 100 beaches to choose from, it’s easy to see why so many tourists flock to the coast here each year. Many hold the prestigious Blue Flag status meaning they’re safe for young swimmers, and a good variety of water sports can be found at beaches such as Binibeca and Cala’n Porter. Our villas to rent in Menorca are ideally located so you can fully enjoy the soft white sand and azure blue waters that give many of Menorca’s beaches a true paradise feel.
Nightlife in Menorca
Evenings out on a Menorca villa holiday are generally a low-key affair, but there are still plenty of cocktail bars to choose from in picturesque settings such as Cala’n Bosch’s marina or in Son Bou’s commercial centre. If you want something a little livelier, head to Cala’n Porter and experience the renowned cliff cave bars at Cova d’en Xoroi.
Food and Drink in Menorca
Perhaps Menorca’s most renowned dish is Caldereta de Langosta – a steaming lobster casserole. The capital Mahón is thought to be the birth place of Mayonnaise, whilst Mahon cheese is also a tasty local delicacy. Don’t forget to try an Ensaimada, this spiral-shaped breakfast pastry can be enjoyed with chocolate, apricot or cream. Xoriguer gin is made in Mahón and you can even visit the factory.
History and Culture in Menorca
Simply wandering through the cobbled streets of Menorca’s towns will have you in awe. History enthusiasts will love exploring both the capital of Mahón and the old capital of Ciutadella – both are home to 18th century buildings as well as Gothic Cathedrals and castles. Unlike its comparatively faster-paced neighbouring islands of Majorca and Ibiza, life on a Menorca villa holiday offers a steady and relaxing vibe.
