6 Places to Discover in Menorca
Menorca is one of the smaller Balearic islands and part of sunny Spain but don’t let its size fool you… it packs a hefty punch in amazing things to see, do and eat; from beautiful vistas across the island, kayaking through its crystal clear waters to the historic monuments that are scattered across the island. There really is a Menorca for each and every visitor.
Take a look at some of the best places and experiences to have whilst you’re visiting this Mediterranean treasure!
1. Kayak Across the Coast
No visit to Menorca is complete without taking a dip in the beautifully clear waters of the island’s coastline. Hire a kayak (and an instructor if you’re not familiar) and take to the water!
Want to try some award winning cheese and wine that is locally produced and carefully crafted, then head across to S’Hort de Sant Patrici Winery where they combine the two perfectly!
This delicious combo is an amazing place to enjoy some of the island’s most prized exports in a stunning, green setting!
3. Visit to Cova d’en Xoroi
This cave/cliff bar is one of the most dramatic bars in all of the Mediterranean.
It’s a great place to chill out with one of their freshly prepared cocktails while soaking up the glorious sunshine!
The joy of being an island is that there are ample opportunities to head out into the ocean and learn new skills.
Join a guided catamaran tour, discover the rugged coastline and learn a new sailing skill that’ll impress your friends.
You’ll be a sailor yet!
