Menorca – a Small Piece of Paradise in the Mediterranean

Menorca – a Small Piece of Paradise in the Mediterranean

Menorca, a Sunway destination this year, is a small piece of paradise within the western Mediterranean, a pearl bathed by calm seas and sheltered by a gentle climate. An unending range of colours melt into each other: blue skies, turquoise seas, dark green woods, brown rocks, white beaches. 

One of the most popular family holiday destinations, Menorca, with its coastline comprising mainly of picturesque little sandy coves overshadowed by dramatic cliffs, has a very individual character and atmosphere.

Along the 216km of coastline there are over 70 beaches and coves, with fine white sand along the south and reddish tones along the wilder north. The geological variety makes it an area of undoubted beauty with stark cliffs and gently sloping beaches. Nautical traditions in the ports still exist as a livelihood for many people, and as leisure for others.

There is something about Menorca that is hard to explain – it has to be experienced. Perhaps it is the slow pace of development that has left this island unspoilt despite being a most popular holiday destination. Menorca resorts vary from quiet fishing villages where you can relax and unwind on quiet beaches to bustling seaside towns catering for all ages, tastes and pockets. Menorca has it all and more.
