Majorca's baby sister, Minorca is not as big or as frantic. The speed of life is unhurried and relaxed.
You can look forward to laid-back days taking pleasure in Minorca's gorgeous beaches. The long white open spaces of Son and Bou Cala Galdana are ideal for water sports, sun-bathing and swimming. When gets to hot visit one of the beach bars for a refreshing Menorquina ice-cream. Make time to find beaches that are nearly entirely abandoned, apart from making way to tourism, Minorca does still offer some real solitude and peace.
Take your camera and escape the beaches for one day at least just for a little sightseeing. Minorca is charming Inland, unexpectedly green and scattered with old historic monuments. Visit the ex-capital Ciudadela; pretty and old with Moorish whitewashed buildings, and Mahon; curving elegantly round one of the world's deepest natural occuring harbors. Arrive ready to be tempted by the first-rate restaurants and shops!
Nightlife in Minorca is moderately low key, with only a few of late discos and night bars, in some resorts. Even though if you can take a taxi to Mahon or Ciudadela you will find a more diverse choice, particularly by the quay sides. At dusk, relaxing under the sun, evenings are usually restful times with friendly company, good food and chilled wine. Gourmets adore Minorca. Look forward to tasting some superb seafood menus, particularly if you visit Fornells, a charming village on the coast to the north, where the lobsters are especially appetizing. Quite possibly mayonnaise is Minorca's main cooking influence on the rest of the world, which started in the island's capital of Mahon!
If your perfect holiday combines nightclubs, loud music and lively beaches Minorca is almost certainly not the place for you. Holiday makers visit Minorca for peace and tranquility, wonderful scenery, fantastic beaches and a friendly family ambiance.
