Beaches · Landmarks · Bars & Clubs
The most tranquil of the Balearic Islands, Minorca or Menorca is a protected biosphere reserve featuring a remarkably unspoiled nature. Despite its small size, this island possesses just as many beaches as its bigger siblings, making it a perfect holiday destination. Here adventurous travelers have the opportunity to leisurely explore the natural attractions that abound, and quite possibly could have a pristine beach all to themselves. But more than just these untouched beaches and secluded bays along the coast, the island does have several modern yet very peaceful resorts, noted for a wide range of outstanding tourist facilities and a myriad of alfresco dining options.
