Beaches in Mallorca and Menorca: relaxation, beauty and fun
The beaches in Mallorca and Menorca are a good enough reason in themselves to visit the islands. They are famous for a combination of turquoise blue waters and the vast diversity of their scenery. The majority have fine, white sand, although there are also many rocks and cliffs for more adventurous visitors!
Mallorca has more than 300 beaches and coves, each of them with their own personality. If you would like more information about Mallorcan beaches, from the most popular to the most remote, see our post on the best 8 beaches in Mallorca for diving. You’ll find something for everyone!
The coast of Menorca is completely different and well known for its abundant environmental wealth and diversity. Visitors can soak up the sun on up to 75 different beaches, mostly nestled between the cliffs. Every one of the beaches is a welcome surprise and an ideal place to disconnect. If you enjoy losing yourself in nature and discovering new places, now is the time to come and visit!
Discover extremely charming villages
Both Menorca and Mallorca fascinate visitors. How can such small islands have such an amazing variety of different types of scenery? It really is something you have to see for yourself.
Mallorca is home to charming mountain villages in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, such as Valldemossa, a village enveloped by the mountains with a rich cultural heritage, or Deià, a small and picturesque village in the west of the island. And there are also other beautiful places such as Alcudia, a famous medieval town by the sea.
Menorca also has idyllic scenery, barely altered by the passage of time. The island allows us to take a trip back to the origins of humanity, visiting its enigmatic and megalithic prehistoric constructions. We recommend a walk through the romantic old town in Ciudadela and a visit to Binibeca, a small white-washed village like a picture postcard. You cannot fail to be enchanted. These are mandatory visits!
A culinary tour of Mallorca and Menorca
A visit to the islands is a pleasure for all the senses, especially if you take time to discover its culinary traditions. Both Mallorca and in Menorca offer traditional cuisine based on the essence of the Mediterranean: variety and balance, fresh local products and plenty of olive oil, the star ingredient. Visit every corner of the islands and enjoy the different flavours that await you in every dish.
Don't leave Mallorca without having tried a delicious pa amb oli, a tasty ensaïmada or a good plate of tumbet, all a real treat!
Menorcan cuisine is famous for its delicious combination of seafood, fish and traditional flavours. One of Menorca's most famous attractions is its lobster stew or a dish of oliaigua soup. And don't forget to take home with you a good chunk of Mahon cheese. A delicious treat!
