Welcome to Menorca
Mellower than its bigger Balearic neighbors of Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca packs plenty into its 30-mile-long (48-kilometer-long) frame. White-sand coves, waterparks, and low-key resorts such as Arenal d’en Castell and Cala Bosch lure fun-seeking families. Meanwhile, outdoor enthusiasts hit the aquamarine seas on catamaran, snorkel, kayak, and scuba excursions; and sightseers roam the 18th-century streets, plazas, and harborside restaurants of the honey-stone capital Maó and its smaller sister, Ciutadella. Other popular things to do in Menorca include exploring prehistoric stone monuments and following peaceful country trails on foot, horseback, or bike.
