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 Menorca'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 Menorca gin and lemonade.
On Menorca 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.
