Balearic Islands

Balearic Islands

Menorca or Minorca is probably the most 'exclusive' of the Balearic islands. Thirty miles long by 12 miles wide, the boomerang-shaped island is a relatively upmarket contrast to some of its neighbours. The island still has undeveloped parts and secluded beaches that can only be reached by boat or on foot.

The island has a rich and varied geography and the prehistoric remains which litter the island are fascinating and mysterious.

The British have had an attraction to the island to the island since the 18th century when it was a British colony, visited by Admiral Lord Nelson and his mistress, Lady Hamilton.

Menorca is the wettest of the three major Balearic islands, with a strong and sometimes cold and northerly wind in the winter months. As a consequence, tourism is highly geared towards May-October when it is much warmer and often hot and sunny, Most of the accommodation is on the coast in hotels, apartments and holiday villas. makes minimal use of cookies, including some placed to facilitate features such as Google Search.
