Escape to the Balearic Island of Menorca for sandy beaches, ancient ruins and lip-smacking Spanish cuisine.
For many, Menorca is a much quieter alternative to its livelier Balearic siblings, Mallorca and Ibiza. That may be true, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting. There are splendid beaches – obviously – but Gothic architecture and Roman ruins give this island an historical aspect you might not have known much about. From the cobblestone streets of Ciutadella to rural fincas and farms, there are some fantastic places to stay in Menorca that will give you a flavour of how the locals live. Here’s our pick of the best, all bookable on Culture Trip.
