Menorca in winter, a paradise worth discovering

Menorca in winter, a paradise worth discovering

There is no need to wait for good weather to enjoy Menorca. The island’s rich diversity ventures well beyond its beaches and coastline. Actually, it is only in winter, out of the tourist season whirlwind, that this tiny Mediterranean island of just 700 km2 reveals its full essence, and is a wonderful time for visitors to discover a genuine paradise.

A natural, cultural and gastronomic paradise; an exclusive hideaway, to relax from stress, to lose or to find yourself in a perfectly peaceful setting, whether at a coastal villa, a country house or in any of its charming villages.

You may even be the lone occupant of any of the most popular beaches, whether the unspoiled and wild beaches of the northern coast or the southern beaches and their white-sand and crystal-clear waters. The Albufera des Grau lagoon, core of the biosphere reserve; the ravines that run like great furrows dug into the earth; or the Camí de Cavalls trail that surrounds the entire island's perimeter along the coast are only a part of the natural wealth that we strongly recommend visiting to better grasp the diversity of the island’s natural heritage.

The many caves and prehistoric sites spread about the island transport us to the highly magical, ancient and mysterious Menorca. You will also enjoy a wide range of hiking, cycling and horseback riding routes that are offered and adapted to all ages and levels. Traditional Menorcan cuisine is also a “must” to fully absorb the sense of the island: Mahón-Menorca cheese with its protection of origin, wine, pastries and the traditional seafood cuisine that has been so perfectly modernized. You can savour the entire variety of local products that the fields and waters of Menorca have to offer its visitors.
