Relaxing holiday in Menorca

Menorca (or Minorca) is one of the Balearic Islands, the little sister of Majorca and it is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday in the sun. It’s the best place to go if you want a peaceful retreat. Partygoers will find Menorca a bit too boring but for those who want to get away from it all and just have some peaceful time then Menorca is the perfect island!

Menorca has many great beaches on its coastline such as: Punta Prima, Cales Coves or Cala en Porter.

The natural beauty of the island truly brings you back to the times when everything was so simple yet so amazing. To make your holiday arrangements you can pick a low cost holiday to Menorca from hundreds of offers out there.

In Menorca you can enjoy delicious seafood dishes in different small restaurants. You won’t get anything frozen here as they only serve fresh sea food. You’d love the lobsters! Es Pla is where King Juan Carlos I would go to have his lobsters. Yes, you can also try the same lobsters he enjoyed as you order the caldereta de langosta. If you don’t fancy that then try a delicious paella.

One thing you should also try in Minorca is a glass of pomada (which is Mao gin with lemon) or formatge the Mao (a local cheese).
