- Menorca Luxury holidays
Menorca’s peaceful landscape is quite the contrast to the neighbouring party islands of Ibiza and Mallorca. On your luxury Menorca holiday, expect to see culture, unspoilt coastlines and a laid-back pace of life.
This pretty island offers something for everyone; luxury holidays to Menorca combine inspiring landscapes and history. A visit to Mahón, for instance, is sure to sate the thirst of discerning historians: this old city is a medley of cathedrals, robust Spanish mansions and open-air markets.
Those seeking seclusion should take a trip to the purpose-built Mediterranean fishing village of Es Grau. You’ll find this gem on the coast of Binibeca Vell, along the south-eastern corner of the island. Top restaurants and chic bars dot the coastline, serving up authentic Spanish cuisine you won’t find anywhere else in the Balearics. Make sure to try the local Rajiformes (a flattened fish related to sharks), traditionally oven-baked or grilled.
It wouldn’t be a luxury Menorca holiday without a little indulgence, which is why the Xoriguer Distillery in Placa del Carme has become so popular. This heritage gin distillery gives holidaymakers the chance to sample local liquors, whilst basking in the glorious Balearic sunshine.
Hop aboard one of the luxury cruise ships operating along the harbour of Ciutadella and enjoy a swim at Binigaus beach. Once the sun goes down, however, swimsuits are replaced with evening wear and visitors are encouraged to gather round and pop champagne as the sun goes down.
It wouldn’t be a Menorca luxury holiday without some shameless VIP treatment. So why not take the stress out of your Menorca holiday by hiring a unique chauffeur-driven car to take you across the island in style?
