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!
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). Being in the Balearics, you can probably understand why…
5.) The town of Ciutadella de Menorca is pretty lovely to visit…
6.) … as is the town of Mahon!
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. 🙂
