Small is good sometimes, especially in the internationally famous Balearics Islands off the coast of Spain. A great place to get mellow, this smaller local provides a level of quiet remoteness not found in other parts of Spain.
Arriving by ferry on Menorca one is struck by the natural beauty offered by the smaller sized Island. Like Mallorca the coves are where it is at on Menorca. Renting a car and getting out around the Island is recommended. Like Mallorca I’ve taken hundreds of coves and narrowed it done to a handful of time – tested proven gems. Here are the best of the best on Menorca, undeveloped, clean, and precious.
Cala Es Talaier
A must – do is a visit to Ciudadela a small noble city. If history is your thing then visit Naveta des Tudons, Torre d’en Galmes and Torralba d’en Salord. There are plenty of Hotels on the Island most of which are a bit pricy. Because Menorca is more remote the best shot for hotels is to look for deals on the internet, lastminutedeals.com for example to get affordable rates on Menorca. The Hilton at the end of the road near Ciudadela is nice, great location. There are typically plenty of empty rooms on the Island so it pays to shop it.
Whether one decides to hunker down at the Hotel or get out and explore the Island this is a special place. A place to avoid crowds and truly unwind. A place less visited, a natural wonder experienced by few.
