Only 10??? Trust me there’re a lot more than 10 reasons why this island is worthy of an addition to your travel plans but rather than keep you here all day (I talk a lot), I wanted to keep it concise and narrow it down to just 10 of the reasons why Menorca is a perfect little island for your next holiday!

10 Reasons Why You Should Visit The Spanish Island Of Menorca (1)

1.) The beaches here are incredible! We’re talking beautiful fine sandy beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Pretty much every beach postcard rolled into one.

2.) There’s wine here! Not just any old wine – delicious Spanish wine grown in vineyards right on this very island. Needless to say, a trip to one of these vineyards is already a brilliant plan for an afternoon well spent… and if you choose right, you might get a vineyard in a farm that makes its own cheese – that actual homemade wine and cheese, which couldn’t be a further cry from the stuff we get at Tesco / Walmart.

3.) There’s a cave in the rocks and it has the most amazing sunset views! Oh and did I mention that this cave has a bar too!

4.) The weather is pretty consistently hot all summer (and to be honest, outside of summer time). BeingΒ in the Balearics, you can probably understand why…

7.) The landscape here is absolutely dramatic!

8.) There are lot of ancient structures (some of which are over 3,000 years old) which are dotted around the island to discover. Till date, no one knows how they got there but they’re rather impressive to see.

9.) The island is much quiet and laidback so it’s a much better place to visit when you just wanna relax and get away from it all (though it should be noted that it’s not lacking in nightlife – there’s even a SPACE nightclub here if you’re that way inclined).

10.) A lot of the island is zoned off to stop random building from popping up all around the island leaving more nature for you to explore and enjoy! Even if you’re not into hiking or long walk, we can all appreciate an uninterrupted view of mountains or the sea without some building obscuring said view. πŸ™‚

  • Hey Yaya, great photos!

    You’ve convinced me – Menorca is the only Balearian island that I haven’t yet visited, now it’s deffinitely on my bucket list πŸ™‚

    Do you have any recommendations for less crowded or even secluded sand beaches?

    Cheers, N.

    • HandLuggageOnly

      Yay! So glad you like it too!

      Okay so, Cala Tirant is quite a large but very natural beach that can be quite quiet – it just depends on what time of the year you visit.

      Alternatively, rent a car for a day and discover the little coves along the shoreline – there’s so many hidden places to enjoy and I’ve no doubt you’ll end up with your own private little beach! πŸ™‚

      • Thanks, sounds amazing – renting a car and searching for hidden gems is always the best part of a vacation πŸ˜‰

    I have just come back from it after my first visit. Wonderful! I still have to see places you show here that I didn’t visit. So I will be back with luck. I am just about to put my first video (the super sights and sounds of Menorca’s wildlife) about it on my Terry McGeary channel on Youtube. Please have a look and you will be even more enthusiastic about this under-rated little gem in the Med!

      It’s an incredible island isn’t it! So happy you enjoyed it too.

        Yes it was fabulous. I might do Majorca next then back to Menorca to ‘finish it off’! (So many more birds and plants to video)

        • HandLuggageOnly

          That’s a great idea… oh, we know what you mean! 🐧
