Top 5 travel tips in Menorca1. Visit the monoliths of Menorca and discover the island’s history
If you’ve already spent a holiday in the Balearic Islands, you’ll know that this area has a rich history, and Menorca is no different. There are no less than 1,500 monoliths and other megalithic sites on the island! These ancient structures go back all the way to the very first inhabitants of the island and give you a glimpse of what life was like centuries ago. They are dispersed all over the island and include villages, tombs, temples and even a necropolis. You can pick up a guide at the local tourist information centre to learn more about Menorca’s incredible cultural heritage.2. Hike around the entire island with the Cami de Cavalls
You can explore Menorca’s incredibly beautiful landscapes and views thanks to the Cami de Cavalls, a circular hiking trail that runs along the entire coast of the island. This trail takes you along towering cliffs, hidden beaches, small pine forests and many other natural wonders of Menorca, with a fantastic view of the Mediterranean on top. Hikers, cyclists and horse riders all love this amazing trail. You can walk short stretches of the Cami de Cavalls, but if you’re feeling ambitious, you can try to complete the entire trail during your stay. It’s more than worth the effort!3. Go for a swim at the hidden-away Cala Pregonda
Ask anyone living on the island about Cala Pregonda, and they will tell you that it is one of Menorca’s most beautiful beaches, although it’s hard to get to. This cove is located on the north coast of the island, and to get there you’ll first have to drive from your holiday letting in Menorca, and then hike 30 minutes, or you could rent a boat and sail there. All your efforts will be worth it, though, because Cala Pregonda is one of a kind on Menorca. The beach is covered by fine golden-red sand, and surrounded by red rocks that will make you feel like you’re on Mars instead of Menorca. The beach is a great sun-bathing spot and the little rock islands in the bay are home to many marine life species, so don’t forget your snorkelling gear. And for the adrenaline seekers there is also a natural salt water rock pool where you can go cliff diving.4. Visit Ciutadella and its medieval streets
Because Menorca is relatively small, it’s easy to go on a day trip to Ciutadella from your holiday villa in Menorca. This medieval city is a must-see for every tourist, with quaint streets, beautiful houses and an impressive cathedral. It’s worth visiting the city just to get lost on its streets and discover the palaces and squares behind every corner. For lunch or dinner, head to the port and try some of the fresh fish and seafood while you enjoy a spectacular view of the marina. And that’s not everything! From street markets to museums, there’s plenty to see and do in Ciutadella, so go for a day trip and discover it yourself.5. Head to Xoriguer for a gin tasting
If you leave Menorca without trying the local gin, you’re missing out! Menorca is quite famous for the local gin produced by Xoriguer, the oldest distillery of the island. You can visit their headquarters in Mahon and see for yourself how this delicious drink is made, try a self-guided tasting of all the kinds of gins they make and get your own bottle at their shop. You should also try the local drink pomada, made by mixing one part of Xoriguer gin with two parts of lemonade. It’s the perfect summer drink to sip while you’re enjoying the Menorcan sun.
