Visit Minorca - Best of Minorca

Situated in the Mediterranean Sea, Minorca, also known as Menorca, is a beautiful Spanish island. It is the second largest island of the Balearic Islands. Despite being a popular tourist destination, Minorca remains one of the most unspoilt Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean. This is due to the fact that the island has been encouraging eco tourism and sustainable tourism for many years now, long before eco tourism became fashionable!

Having a coastline of approximately 216 kilometres, your trip to Minorca will have you visiting unspoilt, pristine beaches where the turquoise waters look more like a painting than an actual phenomenon! Infact, many of the beaches on the island look like a scene right out of a holiday postcard! Whatever pictures you see in Minorca tourist guides, that is what you get- beautiful beaches, picturesque towns and happy, smiling people.

Divided into 8 municipalities, the gentle landscapes of the island are ideal for walking, hiking and cycling. Stone monuments and ruins dating back to the 18th century can be found scattered across the countryside. While working on your Minorca itinerary, do include attractions other that beaches. Some recommendations would be the fortress of La Mola de Menorca, the unique restaurant/ nightclub Cova d’en Xoroi, the village of Es Grau and a tour of the Xoriguer Gin Factory.
