Menorca, a diamond in the rough of a splendid nature that is still quite unknown to the tourists, is gradually opening up to the outside world. Inheriting a thousand-year-old culture, the island has more than 1000 varieties of flowers and shrubs and no less than 200 species of birds. But if you want to sunbathe on white sandy beaches and have aperitifs with your feet in the water, you are also in the right place ! The island of Menorca with its coastline of more than 200 km gathers no less than 70 different beaches all classified as biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
Mahon, the capital of the island, offers a warm welcome with its radiant port and its world-renowned history museum. Many artists come there to exhibit their works and end up settling on the island, inspired by its beauty. Continue your journey by exploring the southern coast of the island and its coves worthy of the most beautiful postcards. During the day, it is very pleasant to stroll through the shady streets of Es Migjorn Gran
and in the evening to take part in the traditional village festivals of Alaior
. Perhaps you will come across some donkeys on the way ?
Another mythical place in Menorca: Ciutadella. The former capital has unparalleled architectural and cultural richness. Start with the unmissable citadel, a sumptuous 13th century cathedral and symbol of the city. Then embark on a boat to enjoy a unique view of the coast at Torre del Ram.
In the north of the island, the architecture of the Punta Grossa villas will leave you speechless. You can choose between several beautiful hiking trails and keep an eye out on the landscape because you may catch sight of the goats among the rocks of Na Xeringa !
