A visit to Cova D'en Xoroi is a must, a cafe and bar built into the cliffside at Cala En Porter close to Mahon. An amazing place for an afternoon drink, sunset watching and cool vibes at night too.
Highlights of Menorca
Cala en Turqueta, which is approximately 2.5 miles from Sant Joan on the south west of Menorca, is well worth the visit purely just to take in the picturesque view of the crystal clear water and white sandy beach which is truly breathtaking. It is ideal for all ages and the sea caves which you can explore make for a fun day out.
Son Bou which is just south of Alaior has the longest beach on the island of Menorca and offers facilities including sun beds as well as a fantastic range of watersports for all to enjoy.
Mahon has been the capital of Menorca since the 18th century and it should definitely be on your list of places to visit when going to the island. Its harbour is the second deepest in the world and the port itself makes for a great place to go to relax during the night. Explore the town and its plethora of shops where you are more than likely going to find the perfect gift to take home to your friends and family or try one of the many markets in which you can find anything from leather goods to textiles and a variety of artistic crafts. The Museo de Menorca is the ideal place for those who are interested in the history of the island.
Ciutadella on the western coast of Menorca is a great place to head to if you fancy spending a day away from the beach. The old town, in particular, is well worth a visit as its cobbled, narrow lanes along with the 17th century Italian-styled buildings, are filled with history and culture.
Being an archipelago of four islands, there is so much to see in the surrounding areas and the islands of Ibiza, Majorca and Formentera are easily accessible via ferry or plane. Majorca is the largest island of the archipelago and is also known for its lively nightlife as well as its family-friendly beaches. Formentera is the smallest of the islands and is also the most southern. While being only 17 kilometres away from Ibiza, it is definitely a lot more relaxed and is the perfect places to go for some tranquillity.
