Luxury Menorca Holidays

Peaceful shores and pine groves


Menorca may be the quiet and shy Balearic Island, but it punches above its weight in terms of beaches. More than 100 of them edge the coastline here, from sweeping bays to secluded inlets and pine-backed coves. The calm, clear waters are spot on for swimming and snorkelling, while the soft white sands are a hit with families.

If you’re wanting to escape the crowds, ditch the car and seek out the beaches only accessible on foot or by boat. The Cami de Cavalls coastal path circles the island and is a great way to discover Menorca’s hidden gems.

Beaches aside, this little isle has plenty to fill your days. Feeling energetic? The rolling countryside is just the ticket for walking, cycling or horse riding. Prefer to take things slow? Café-lined marinas are people-watching hotspots (order a G&T made with island gin – it’s delicious). Looking for local culture? Head to the old capital, Ciutadella.

Destinations in Menorca
Cala Galdana
Cala Galdana is the stuff of postcards. Its bay is unusually wide for Menorca, rolling out an arc of white-gold sand, plus plenty of pine-veiled hotels and restaurants.
Cala'n Bosch
The resort of Cala’n Bosch sprang up beside sandy Son Xoriguer Beach back in the 1980s, bringing with it a host of porcelain-white villas and relaxed marina-side restaurants.
Mahon sits in a deep-cut harbour on the east coast. It’s got all the trappings of an island capital, including Georgian museums, a ruined castle, pastel churches and boutique-lined squares.
Punta Prima
Punta Prima arranges luxe spa hotels around a petite sandy beach on the south-east corner of Menorca. And it's just 20 minutes’ drive from island capital Mahon.
Santo Tomas
Santo Tomas sets down on a headland with beach bookends. In fact, this whole stretch of coastline is dot-and-dashed with beaches – from restaurant-backed coves to au naturel Binigaus Beach.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Menorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes. 

When to go

Expect reliable beach weather from April all the way through to September, with average temperatures around 25°C or a shade more in August. Summers in Menorca are dry and the sea is lovely and warm, while spring and autumn months stay in the late teens for pleasant hiking weather.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.

Leanne Hall

A must while in Menorca is a visit to the gin distillery in Port Mahon. You can see where the gin is produced, try out different flavourings (from aniseed to peppermint schnapps) and buy a bottle or two to bring home.
