Need a break? Are you dreaming of a vacation on one of the most beautiful islands in the world?
Listed as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Menorca is for you!
Nicknamed the anti-Ibiza, the most discreet of the Balearic Islands retains an authentic and preserved imprint which makes it a destination without rhinestones and glitter appreciated by vacationers in search of serenity. Add to that some historic (and prehistoric) sites, pretty villages and very regulated access to its fine sandy beaches, and you will understand what makes the charm of this little paradise bathed by the waters of the Mediterranean.
Menorca-Mahón Airport (IATA code MAH) is located 4.5 kilometers southwest of the island's capital, Mahón. A short distance easy to travel by taxi, at far from excessive prices (allow 5 to 7€ to reach the city center). Even more economical, the bus!
Bask on the sand of a secret beach
Coves with turquoise waters, immaculate white sand, delightfully cut cliffs ... Classified as a biosphere reserve by Unesco since 1993, Menorca is a delight for Robinsons in search of pristine and isolated beaches. A luxury that, of course, deserves: to access Cala Trebaluger, in the south of the island, count 40 minutes on a forest trail starting from Cala Mitjana.
Spend a night in the clubbers' lair
No offense to the revelers of the excessive Ibiza, it is on the very wise Menorca that the most trendy bar of the Balearics is located. Set in a network of caves carved into the side of a cliff, the Cova d'en Xoroi is the favorite haunt of romantic clubbers. The first glass of Pimada, the local cocktail, is enjoyed on one of the terraces overlooking the Big Blue, before the fever reaches the walls of a cavity ... muy caliente!
Take a stroll at the end of the world
Perched on a cliff at the end of Cap de Favàritx, in the heart of the natural site of Marécage es Grau, this almost century-old lighthouse challenges the waters of the Big Blue in a fascinating setting. As if abandoned by men in its lunar landscape, the building invites you to an enchanting excursion away from the crowds, just a few kilometers from the capital.
Travel to the heart of prehistory
Occupied since time immemorial, the most authentic of the Balearic Islands still bears the imprint of this intense prehistoric presence. From the Navetta d'Es Tudons to the village of Torre Llafuda, embark on an incredible journey on the edge of the ages, between megaliths, troglodyte caves and talayots. To be completed with a stop at the history museum in Port-Mahon, the capital of the island.
Take the ancestral path of the riders
Green and unspoiled, Menorca is a life-size playground for all those who, after a few hours on the beach, already have ants in their legs. On foot, by mountain bike or on horseback, on the coast or inland, trails abound on the island. The most complete? The Camí de Cavalls (horse trail), a long-distance route that circles the island, over 186 km of pure visual happiness.
