Minorca or Menorca (official name) is the second largest of the Balearic Islands, located to the northeast of Mallorca and is the least overrun and most tranquil of the Balearics. Due to its unspoilt beauty, it allows the more adventerous the opportunity to discover new charms and experiences. Despite its smaller size among other Spanish islands, the number of beaches that Menorca has equals the number of beaches that can be found in Mallorca and Ibiza combined. The possibility of having a beautiful beach largely to yourself in the summer, combined with alfresco dining and peaceful holiday resorts, makes Minorca a highly desirable place to visit.
The peak season in Minorca is from end of June until the beginning of September, being the first two weeks of August the most crowded time. However, the touristic season, when most of the hotels are opened starts around April and finishes in October.
During the "winter season", from October to April, most of the hotels are closed and many attractions will be opened only during the weekend or closed as well.
Minorca is a relatively quiet island which means that more wholesome, family fun holidays are geared towards this island. If
you prefer a more vibrant night scene, head to nearby Ibiza or Mallorca for a bustling city atmosphere.
