About Menorca

The beautiful Spanish island of Menorca, sometimes spelled Minorca, is located in the Mediterranean Sea and enjoys over two and a half thousand hours of sunshine a year. It is the second largest of the Balearic Islands, after Mallorca, and considered by many to be the most tranquil and unspoilt of the islands. Menorca is a wonderful place for a relaxing, peaceful holiday where visitors can enjoy the abundant beaches, alfresco dining and unhurried resorts. Since there is so much beach around, they are generally not crowded.

With car hire from Gesman and time to explore, you can discover a wealth of historic or geographical landmarks in the interior of the island, such as the prehistoric stone Taulas and Talayots. Menorca is remarkable for the number of prehistoric settlement sites that can be found, and a rich heritage of archaeological sites and monuments. Menorca has been under the control of the Romans, Moors, Spanish, French and English over its history, and was fought over for use of the vast port of Mahón.

Menorca is also noted for its wildlife, especially birds, and was distinguished as a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco in 1993. Being on the migration route of many species of birds also brings in vast numbers at different times of year. Meanwhile, the local people seem to be charmed by horses which are celebrated everywhere and at festivities. There is even a special race of Minorcan black horse bred there.

It takes just an hour to drive the length of the island from east to west, and only forty-five minutes to traverse it north to south. This should leave you plenty of time to enjoy the sights and investigate the mysteries of Menorca's quiet charms.
