Menorca – the island for a relaxed beach holiday


Created by Mondo for Finnair

Did you know that Menorca has more beaches that the neighbouring Mallorca and Ibiza combined? Most of them are tiny coves hidden in between cliffs—just the kind where lovers want to keep all to themselves.


Menorca is a charming smaller sibling of Mallorca and, in addition to relaxing on the beach, it has a lot to offer active holiday makers. The varied landscape and sights are best admired using your own muscle power. Menorca has numerous marked cycling routes and from a kayak you can count the many beautiful lighthouses around the island. Horseback riding is also available, even for beginners.


Of Menorca’s towns, the most attractive is Ciutadella, where the old town still has imprints of its Roman and Moorish history. The mouthwatering smell of freshly baked ensaïmadas spreads from the bakeries on the narrow streets. When the day turns to dusk and the street lamps light up, it’s time to explore Ciutadella.

Good to know about Menorca


You are unlikely to find the Cap Roig restaurant, tucked away on a cliff top, by accident. The menu focuses on seafood, such as fresh fish and great paella, served with an amazing sea view. The restaurant offers simple but delicious food made from the best ingredients.


Have you ever tasted Menorcan wines? The Binifadet winery offers an introduction to local wines and wine cellar tours. The winery has a modern wine bar and a cosy restaurant where you can sample the wines of the island and local food with an innovative twist while relaxing in the peace and quiet of the countryside.


Menorca is dotted with countless small shoe shops where local leather products have been made for decades. The most popular footwear on the island are the comfortable and casual avarca sandals which are available in a wide range of colours. The classic sandals are ideal for the city and the beach.
