For a quiet holiday in the Balearic Islands (Spain), the island of Minorca (Menorca) is the place, in particular because it is the Balearic island which has best preserved its traditional identity and character. Situated to the north-east of Majorca, it has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Nowadays, it offers visitors magnificent beaches and creeks to suit all tastes, from more touristy areas and wild stretches of coast to nudist beaches. The island is dotted with small villages, megaliths, meadows, valleys, hills and precipices. Minorca has also been declared a Biosphere Reserve. The marshland area of Es Grau is a veritable nature reserve home to hundreds of species of birds. Cliffs and caves also add to the charm of the island’s coastline. A prime example is the must-see Cova d'en Xoroi (cave), a cathedral of rock carved out of the Es Barranc de Binigaus cliff. The island is dominated by Monte Toro, a hill in the centre of the island. Minorca’s culinary specialities also add to its appeal for visitors. How would you like to rent a large house for all the family in Minorca? A villa with friends, perhaps?
