Menorca is an island of stunning land and seascapes, from the electric blue waters lapping at the feet of the southern cliffs or meadows bursting with colour to the rugged wild beauty of the slate-like rock formations of the S’Albufera des Grau Natural Park.

S’Albufera des Grau Natural Park, Menorca, Spain

Reminders of this Spanish island’s past abound forming the densest concentration of prehistoric monuments in Europe. Superb seafood restaurants are equally as common tucked away in back alleys or by pretty harbours or in the case of the island’s one and only nightclub, Cova d’en Xoroi, stuck to a cliff face like a limpet. And there’s no better place to watch the sun go down with a cool glass of Pomada, a refreshing mix of homemade lemonade and the local gin.

I recently spent a fabulous long weekend discovering the islands charms and to give you a glimpse here’s the second video in my new series ‘The World in 60 Seconds‘ featuring Menorca.

Although we were only there just a few short days we packed a lot in but I do wish we could have stayed a little longer as there is a surprising amount to enjoy on such a small island. If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, Menorca in the spring or autumn is perfect for hiking and biking. Food lovers will be blown away by the delicious seafood, washed down by a delicious glass or two of local wine. History buffs will find the island’s past fascinating. I certainly did. And as for the gin, that was a revelation. I didn’t think I liked it but Menorcan gin with lemonade, known as Pomada was wonderful and so refreshing.

Top Tip: Explore Menorca with Luis Amella of Menorca Guides. His passion for the island was contagious.

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
