Menorca is the easternmost member of the Balearic Islands. It lies in the western region in the Mediterranean sea, 250 kilometres from the Iberian Peninsula. The island lies on the North-East from Mallorca, a direct ferry connects them. Its territory is 700 square kilometres. Regarding its relief it is flat, its highest point is 358 m. There are older, darker and eroded cliffs on its northern part in the Tramuntana region. The lad contains Miocene limestone on the South. As a consequence, the Southern part is flatter with more shallow shores. Thanks to the limestone there is beautiful white sand on the beaches. The streams arriving from North have been forming the place for millennia creating long narrow valleys at their estuary.Countless herbs and wildflowers grow in the fields. The main resource of inhabitants is grazing; the famous Menorcan Cheese is also produced here.
A mysterious nation was living in Menorca before Christ who could move huge cliffs. This is called talaiotic culture whose traces can be found on the island. These people erected temples and settlements from huge rocks of many tons. These megaliths are similar to the ones erected in France and England. Before Christ, the Romans and the Puns were fighting against each other. Then it was the territory of Vandals, later on, it became part of the Byzantine Empire. Pirates attacked the island, then the Moors burnt it down. Thereafter many European nations were trying to occupy it; finally, Spain won. You can trace back all these old historical patches on the island.
Menorca is within the Mediterranean climate. The annual precipitation is 700 mm; most of it falls in winter. Winter is mild; the average temperature is 7-14 °C. At this time the wind is stronger, sometimes can even reach 80 km/h. The summer is extremely hot with high humidity level. There is a perceptible air movement at this time too because there are no high mountains to prevent it. Of course, a light breeze chills you on hot days; moreover, the wind blowing from the North means an excellent condition for sailing. The daily average temperature from June to September is 28°C. There are long hours of sunshine, annually circa 300 days.
This is the largest talaiotic town on the island. A 4000-year-old temple in good condition and local houses amaze their visitors here.
The caves in the limestone cliffs have been used for a long time. Moreover, archaeologists have found ancient findings. Regarding the bay, there is a magnificent view of the bay from the cliff by the seashore. Nowadays an exclusive club awaits you here where you can rent a terrace for the whole day!
Ciutadella was built over 2000 years. In the last 800 years a fabulous cathedral, baroque palaces and churches opened their gates. There is a big fishing market with a wide choice. Furthermore, you should visit its wonderful port.
The Basilica was built around 400 BC. It is quite large; it lies at the end of Son Bou beach. You can visit it independently.
Mahon is the island’s administration centre. Its port is a really deep fjord, its actual depth is 2000 miles. The town preserves Roman, Byzantine, Arabian, Turkish, English and French symbols which makes it quite eclectic. Upon staying here, visit the Menorca Museum, the fishing market, the cathedral or the Carmelite monastery.
Besides Ciutadella, you can spot an old, closed stone mine. A local community, though, fully renovated and transformed it to create a wonderful dreamland. There are thematic gardens, a labyrinth, a theatre and a concert hall among the huge walls.
Menorca boasts of several beaches and tiny coves. Let’s see a couple of them below.
Menorca’s most famous beach stretches along the south-west side of the island. The beautiful snow-white sand in the bay contributes to your perfect holiday. You can rent canoes, paddleboats, sunbeds and sun umbrellas. Or have a rest in the bar or restaurant.
This magical bay is on the north-west of Menorca. It is an excellent scuba diving place due to the two types of rocks of Menorca. The darker one stems from the Jurassic times, the white is Miocene limestone. Furthermore, there is a rich fauna in the water. Many sponges, corals, shells, starfish and colourful algal species live here.
Son Saura is one of the most famous intact natural beaches by the south shore of Menorca. There is only one facility: a lifeguard patrols the shore in the season. Nature dominates here.
This beach is really unique. There is a small bar on the shore where the tables are so close to the water that you can even put your legs into the sea. A typical Menorca feeling!
Menorca possesses two significant ports in Mahon and Ciutadella. There are few, though, on the island, but with limited capacity. Owing to the shortage of ports it is allowed to stay in the bay for the night in Menorca.
This port is in a narrow fjord. It can accept yachts of a maximum of 20 meters. It provides full service with fuel options. Although it has its own opening time, so check it well before your cruise.
The city’s port is famous for its depth. At certain places, the distance from the bed is 30 metres. It is naturally formed and found in a fjord. Since it means complete protection, it has been served like that for thousands of years. The port has two terminals; one has berths for yachts of 6, the other for 50 metres. There are a 24-hour security service and all other necessary facilities for boatmen. There is also electricity and water supply, taxi, laundry and pubs.
