About Menorca

Menorca has something for everyone, be they a lover of remote beaches, the bustling city life in Mahon, lively resorts, charming restaurants or sporting activity. Located in the Mediterranean, close to its bigger island sister Mallorca, this jewel of the Balearic islands has been a magnet for visitors since the earliest days of tourism. Yet it retains an unspoiled, typically Spanish charm and continues to welcome holidaymakers of all nationalities and temperament. There’s nowhere quite like it anywhere in the world. Many people go to Menorca just for the weather, the beaches, the food and, well, the relaxation. But for those who want adventure and activities then Menorca really comes into its own. Menorca is full of staggering coastal walks, Horse riding on beaches and ancient paths, a challenging 18 hole golf course nearby at Son Parc, amazing biking, exceptional bird watching, famous sailing schools in nearby Fornells, spectacular diving also from nearby Fornells (more for the architectural beauty of the dive sites than the sealife) and Menorca also hosts one of the most extraordinary nightclub settings in the world.
