Quieter than Ibiza and Mallorca, Menorca offers the sun-soaked beaches, warm waters, and feel-good lifestyle synonymous with the Balearics but at a more mellow pace than its rowdy neighbours. Menorca’s two main cities Maó and Ciutadella are low-key and perfect for relaxed wanders. The white sandy beaches that pepper the 216km island coastline offer Mediterranean escapism at its best whilst the rest of the island remains relatively rural, a landscape of colourful fields and rolling hills. This area of gorgeous natural beauty features protected environmental areas and mysterious Bronze Age sites making it a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
