Spotlight on relaxation
Granted, it’s less hip than Ibiza and less happening than Majorca, but that’s exactly Menorca’s pull. This Balearic isle doesn’t do flashing neon, but rolls out low-rise resorts, pretty marinas and golden beaches instead.
Son Bou's sandy beaches
If the latter caught your attention, set the sat nav to Son Bou on the south coast. It’s home to the island’s longest sandy stretch, which goes on for 3 kilometres. Plus, because the place is surrounded by rolling countryside – you’ll pass some pretty rugged terrain to get here – it has a really chilled out vibe.
Laid-back Punta Prima
Equally low-key is Punta Prima. It was one of Menorca’s first holiday resorts, and it’s still going strong today. The Blue Flag beach here is a corker – so much so, locals flock here on weekends to make the most of the white sands and shallow waters.
Lively Cala'n Bosch
For something a bit more up-tempo – by Menorca’s standards, anyway – try Cala’n Bosch, further west. The yacht-filled marina, with its open-air cafés, fish restaurants and trendy bars, is the place to head as soon as the sun sets.
