Take advantage of our offer of low-cost Minorca holidays and explore this small paradise chock-full of idyllic unspoilt coves, prehistoric and traditional island constructions. Discover the charm of Minorca while you visit one of its eight municipalities, such as Mahón, the capital, which has a major natural port and other beautiful spots such as the Portal de Sant Roc gate and the La Mola fortress.
A visit to the Santuario de la Virgen del Monte Toro hermitage, dedicated to Minorca's patron saint, is highly recommended; admire the megalithic monuments scattered across the land and the Gothic and Neoclassic style cathedral of Santa María, in Ciutadella. Plan your trip to coincide with the celebration of San Juan, when horses become the focal theme of the local festivities. Don't forget to sample some pomada, a local drink made from Minorca gin and lemonade.
On Minorca holidays, the main theme involves its idyllic coves, including Cala Blanca, dotted with exotic caves; Cala en Bosc, with beach huts for a welcome rest from the heat; Cala en Turqueta, where the colour of the sea pays tribute to its name; and the coves of Macarella and Macarelleta, which often decorate the island's postcards.
After a day on the beach, watch the sun set over the cliffs of Cova d’en Xoroi, dine a lobster stew in the port of Fornells, try the island's typical cheese and sobrasada sausage or treat yourself to a slice of home-made ensaimada, as the food in this area is exceptional.
