If you’re looking for a paradise island escape in the Mediterranean then Menorca, the third most populous of the Balearic Islands, could be the perfect choice.  The quieter neighbour of Majorca, it was nominated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1993 and is an island of outstanding natural beauty with imposing Mediterranean landscapes and species of animals unique to the island.  The ideal way to explore Menorca is by car, from which you will be able to best explore the secluded beaches, coves and open wilderness.

Things To Do In Menorca

Menorca’s two most attractive towns, Mao and Ciutadella, are located at opposite e ends, east and west, with the major road between them connecting the island up with its smaller towns.  Mao’s centre is built around an imposing cliff above the harbour, which is full of bars, cafes and restaurants.  The old town boasts beautiful plazas, striking 18th Century buildings and a charming market.  Ciutadella offers an exquisite old town of cobbled streets, churches and a harbour.

Outside of the towns you’ll find picturesque natural scenery and wildlife.  Stone monuments scatter the scenery and ancient coastal paths span the length of the island making it perfect for hiking.  Bird watching and horse riding is also popular. Family friendly resorts have been built around the white sandy beaches along the coast, where activities including sailing, windsurfing, diving and snorkelling are available. 

Drive Around Menorca

When it comes to car hire, Menorca airport is your ideal pick-up point. The best way to explore the island is by car as it will allow you to travel freely from beach to beach without having to face the full heat of the sun.  Another benefit of hiring a car in Menorca is you’ll make short work of climbing to the peak of the islands highest mountain; El Toro. At only 357 metres it doesn’t make for dizzying heights, but the 360 panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea from the top are breathtaking, and the driver will have fun manoeuvring their way up and down the winding roads to the top.  Menorca is less developed then some of its neighbouring islands, which is part of its charm, but it does make for some challenging driving conditions; the main routes are fine but smaller roads can be narrow and winding so extra care is advised.
