Things to do
Spend a day wandering the neighbourhood of Old Ciutadella for a flavour of Menorca’s past. Or to experience some the island’s military history, you could walk the tunnels at Fort Marlborough. But don’t leave without visiting some of Menorca’s important archaeological sites – the Torre de’en Galmés offers a unique insight into ancient, Talayotic life.
You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve landed in the Caribbean when you escape to the beach in Menorca. The sand is white, the seas are clear, and there are quiet crescents and coves right along the coastline. The challenge will be choosing which one to spend the day on.
The protected area of Parc Natural S’Albufera d’es Grau is an unmissable sight. At the centre of Menorca’s Biosphere Reserve sits a huge, freshwater lagoon. Here you’ll spy wetland species of every size and colour, as well as migrating birds.
