Just northeast of Mallorca, the Balearic Islands’ most tourist-dense island, lies the much calmer tourist destination of Menorca. Menorca is a smaller variant of its other sister islands, but here it is a more relaxed atmosphere that is not as characterized by the mass tourism that prevails in both Ibiza and Mallorca. This is not a coincidence – Menorca has deliberately avoided building a lot of hotels, they have strict rules on the island whether you can expand and since the whole island is a nature reserve, this is more than understandable.
However, this does not mean that you can not go here. There are charter trips and regular flights that take one to Menorca, but the island is best suited for couples or families as the nightlife is largely non-existent. You thus see no party-hungry gangs behaving badly here, but the locals live in harmony with the little tourism that exists. Instead, kilometers of unspoilt sandy beaches, lagoons and caves are offered and the lush greenery means that there are many cooling places to visit and beautiful flora to view.
Places to visit in Menorca
According to Businesscarriers, a very good alternative is to rent a car and get around the island as you want. The main towns on Menorca are called Mahón, closely followed by Ciutadella which was once the island’s capital, but there are also a number of other small picturesque villages and towns that are at least as beautiful to choose from. Cala’n Bosch is one of Menorca’s tourist resorts, lined with shallow beaches that will appeal to families with children extra much. Arenal d’en Castell is located in the north and is another child-friendly place. Punta Prima or Cala Galdana are two other resorts located in the southeastern part of Menorca.
In many ways, Menorca is a very romantic and genuine island, full of hidden coves, sandy beaches and cute fishing villages that make any heart melt. In total, the island has about 120 coves that are scattered around the whole of Menorca. Son Bou, Cala en Turqueta and Platja Tortuga are just a few to mention.
In addition to the sea and bays, Menorca also has mountains to explore. Climb El Toro, which is Menorca’s highest and is located 357 meters above sea level. Then you get a lot of exercise and are rewarded with an incomparable view and view when you reach the top. Also do not forget the world’s second largest deep water port in Mahón. Only Pearl Harbor in Hawaii is deeper.
Perfect activities in Menorca
This small island has everything a tourist could want. Here you can dive, snorkel, practice all kinds of water sports, ride, hike or play golf. You can also rent a mountain bike and get around on your own with the wind in your hair. The water on Menorca is extremely clear and clean so diving here is among the best diving experiences in the Mediterranean, especially in the north and south.
If you go by charter to Menorca from Sweden, you can go from several different cities such as Stockholm, Gothenburg and Luleå. There are also flights from Oslo and Copenhagen. To Menorca, my mother can also fly regularly to Cituadella, from either Stockholm-Arlanda or Copenhagen. You can also first fly to Mallorca and then get here by boat or domestic flight. Then you hit two birds with one stone by seeing two Balearic islands at the same time.
