Menorca was named after the Spanish word 'menor' which means smaller. As the name already suggests Menorca is smaller than its neigbouring islands. While the majority of holidaymakers flock to the more publicity-prone islands of Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca attracts those who want the best of the Balearics, but without the crowds. The stunning coves with white sand beaches are enough of a draw by themselves, but the historic remains of the Brisith occupation, the countryside and tranquillity of this quieter isle all add to its charm.

Do and see
Many immediately head east, through the flower-freckled meadowland of the interior, to the resort of Cala en Forcat, Cala en Bosch and Cala Galdana. Most only return west when it is time to trundle up the airplane steps, having never visited the capital, Mao, which is a shame. Not only does it have the second deepest natural harbour in the world (after Pearl Harbour), it also boasts a colourful and turbulent history due to the many seaborne conflicts between the Spanish, British and French to gain control of this strategically positioned naval base.
Start at Placa Colona and lose yourself in a warren of tight alleyways. Take a boat trip along the harbour for the best views of the quayside and naval base. Maó is the Catalan name for Mahón, or "Port Mahon" in English.
Fort Marlborough
Take a tour of the gloomy tunnels in this low-lying fort, built by the British in the 18th century. It was built semi-submerged with an entry by tunnel in order to conceal it in the surroundings.
Ses Pedreres De S’hostal
Walk through the area of this part-quarry-part-sculpture. Take in the incredible acoustics during one of the many live concerts in summer. Ses Pedreres de S’Hostal is where they used to extract slabs of mares and there is still a magical quality to this venue.
Xoriguer Gin Distillery
Sample one of the best legacies of the British occupation and grab a Menorcan memento at the Xoriguer Gin Distillery. Gin was popularized during the 18th and 19th century and in the early 20th century the brand "Xoriguer" was born on the island.
Ciutadella de Menorca is a small town and the cultural rival of Maó with a surfeit of architectural legacies of the British era. Take a stroll along the canal-like harbour and dine on fresh lobster in one of the waterside restaurants.
Cap de Cavalleria
Minorca has many beautiful lookout points, and one of them located in north Minorca is Cap de Cavalleria. You can drive all the way up but have to leave the car at the entrance. An idea is to pack a lunch to enjoy up here.
La Mola
La Mola is an historic fort located by the harbour in Maó. There are guided tours which take about 2 hours and provide you with an interesting insight to Minorca’s history.
Cala Morell
Cala Morell is a little hidden gem in Ciudadella. It is not your typical sandy beach, but the view here is amazing. You can discover different caves, go snorkelling or just admire the sight.
Airport - Menorca
Menorca Airport is located four kilometres southwest of the capital, Maó. During the summer, buses link the airport with Mao every half hour. Taxis are available outside the arrivals hall. Alternatively, you can hire a car at one of the many on-site rental offices. For car rental: Enterprises rent-a-car www.enterprise.es
Public Transport
Several private bus companies cover a variety of routes on the island. Cars, motorbikes or bicycles are also suitable means of transport, with roads generally well signposted. There are cycle lanes on some of the minor roads. Several of the more popular coves are only accessible by private roads and a small toll is charged in some instances.
Taxis are generally inexpensive, with fixed rates for longer distances. Taxis Maó +34 971 357 700 Radio Taxi +34 971 367 111
Tourist Traps
The supermarkets in resort centres (like Cala en Blanes) often have inflated prices. If you can, make a trip out of town to stock up on essentials.
Post Office
Main post office Stamps can be bought at any tobacconist or at the post office.
