If you’re looking for the perfect destination for a truly relaxing destination this summer, you should most certainly consider Menorca.

This sleepy Balearic Island offers everything you could possibly require to recharge your batteries, all in a picture-perfect landscape of pretty beaches, charming villages and attractive marinas.

In the bigger, more well-known resorts such as Punta Prima and Santo Tomas, the days pass delightfully on the wonderful clean sandy beaches. The longest stretch of sand on the whole island is to be found at Son Bou, a resort renowned for its family-friendliness.

Travel inland and you will discover the beauty of Menorca’s interior. Characterised by rolling hills and quaint villages with one foot firmly in the past, this is a way to experience a real taste of the culture and history of this fascinating place. The countryside is dotted with prehistoric sites, some of which date back as far as 1400 BC.

If you enjoy exploring more urban areas, then you will be spoilt for choice. Menorca boasts two lovely cities - Cuidadela and the capital, Mahon. Both are packed with a plethora of great restaurants, bars and cafes, and they have some great shops to boot.

Menorca may be smaller than neighbouring Majorca and Ibiza, but it has more Blue Flag beaches than the two of them put together. White sands define the beaches to the south of the island, while to the north you will a find no less beautiful but rather more rocky coastline, with sands of a darker hue backed by dramatic cliffs.

The gorgeous resort of Cala Galdana is a real crowd pleaser with its natural cove in the shape of a horse shoe and plenty of water sports, bars, tavernas, shops, restaurants and accommodation catering to all tastes and budgets - from palatial villas and high-end hotels to more modest but no less delightful self-catering flats.

If you crave a day that is truly off the beaten track, you should head to Cala Presili. Pack a picnic, because this is an isolated crescent-shaped beach of perfect white sand that is perfectly unspoilt and stunningly beautiful. It is a bit of a hike to get there - you will need to drive for around twenty minutes past Mahon, and then there is a quarter-of-an-hour stroll to get to the beach. It truly is more than worth the effort, though, once you get there.
