Posted · 7 Comments

An insider’s guide to Menorca, featuring the best hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, attractions and things to do, including how to travel there and around. By Annie Bennett, Telegraph Travel’s Menorca expert.

       Unspoilt, idyllic, glistening sand, turquoise water… just about every tourist brochure cliché is actually true when you are talking about the beaches in Menorca. Outside peak season, it is still often warm enough to sit in the sun and the temperature is ideal for strolling around the coastal paths.

The island has been quietly encouraging sustainable tourism for years, long before it became fashionable. Its gentle landscapes are ideal for activities such as walking, cycling or riding – with no scary sharp inclines for those of us who are not super fit.

Stone monuments dating back thousands of years are scattered across the countryside, providing markers for a hiking holiday, while ancient coastal paths are being restored to link the neverending series of perfect coves.
