Why visit Menorca?

| 29 Comments

We went to Menorca last year, it was my first holiday abroad, but Mummy and the others have been twice before. It is the most beautiful Island, and I wish we were going again this year!

If you are thinking of a Summer Holiday, you should consider Menorca, or the following reasons….

1. It is only around a two hour flight from the UK.

2. From May to September (generally speaking) it is wall to wall sunshine.

3. There are many planning restrictions and conservation programmes in place meaning the natural beauty of the island will be preserved.

4. The Island takes only about an hour to drive from one end to the other (Mahon to Ciutadella).

5. The locals LOVE children, making us feel very welcome at all restaurants, shops etc

6. It is the safest, most child-friendly place Mummy has ever visited. No drunken groups, or trouble after dark.

7. It is a wealth of natural history, with so many historic sights to visit – even my big bro and sisters loved them.

8. There is every type of accomdation on offer, from villas to traditional spanish apartment, to all inclusive hotels.

9. It is one of the better value islands to visit, both in the cost of the holiday, and in groceries etc. There were many things cheaper than at home!

10. Eating out is so reasonable, making it a real treat. Most restaurants have a huge menu of everything from pasta to pizza to fresh fish.

Have you ever been to Menorca?

  5. No I’ve never been to Menorca, just Ibiza near by…but not for clubbing etc, it’s also a surprisingly good place for family holidays out of season. Menorca does sound lovely the way you describe it.

  9. Oooh… SOLD. Sounds awesome. We go to Mallorca quite a lot and love the Balearic islands but Menorca sounds fab – love how it’s so tiny you can get across it in an hour. #travelwithkids

  10. Not somewhere I’ve been to, but certainly on the list. My parents live near Seville so we tend to holiday on the mainland #travelwithkids

  17. I love Menorca. I was very lucky growing up that my grandparents had a villa there and we shared it as a family. Most summers we would go there. It was like a second home. I can’t wait to go back and take my daughter. Hopefully next summer we’ll rent a villa and go. Somewhere like Binibeca probably. Ah fond memories…. Thanks for helping me reminisce

  26. This looks like a great place to visit. I really need a warm holiday, bring on the summer!

  27. I have been to Majorca but not Menorca … Menorca appeals to me a bit more as it seems quieter !!

  28. I’ve not been to Menorca yet but it is on my list. We went to Tenerife back in September, which was lovely & went to Ibiza the year before which needed to be done before we got too old! haha

  29. Menorca is definitely a great holiday island for children. The beaches are very safe ad lots to do.
