The schedule of events coming up in the next few months
What is there to do in Menorca? This is one of the most common questions when planning a holiday to an island that is barely 50 kilometres long. But, as they say, good things come in small packages. And there are a huge number of activities and events that you can include in your trip if you're visiting Menorca in spring.
When is it best to travel to Menorca?
With the beginning of the year, you may already have started planning your holidays. Booking flights and destinations ahead of time has its advantages, such as being able to find good prices, and availability. If you have thought about travelling to Menorca in 2020, here are some tips to choose the best dates for your visit.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "wine"? Probably a good Rioja or a well-known Ribera.
Spain's D.O. wines are renowned throughout the world. Menorca, however, also boasts a wine culture stemming back for ages. So, grab a glass, as we are going to take a look at some history.
If we were to compare the number of beaches to the number of caves in Menorca, you just might be surprised by the result.
The terrain’s typical limestone terrain means that it often looks like a slice of Gruyere cheese (though, if you're going to have cheese, by all means make it a local one!).
The ideal location for astronomical tourism
Imagine almost total darkness, in which you can only see the reflection of your faint shadow on the sand, and the reflections of thousands of stars shimmering on the sea. You lose track of time and space, mesmerised by a magical night on which dozens of meteors shoot across the night sky. Although still a well kept secret (for now), experts consider Menorca a top destination for astronomical observation. In fact, at the beginning of the year it was chosen as a Starlight destination and reserve. Interested in a relaxing getaway under the stars?
Menorca is a byword nature. After the summer, when the yellow and ochre colours of the countryside are turned to green once more by the first rains, the island becomes a paradise for hikers and ramblers. If working up a sweat is your thing, start off the best season for it by booking to enjoy a few days to unwind!
The history of Menorca has left an indelible imprint on the island for millennia.
From the Talaiotic culture to the more recent rulers, which you can read about here, Menorca exudes culture and history from every stone. We propose a route that takes you to five places that will help you to understand a little better why Menorca is the way it is.
No doubt you’ve heard about the huge worldwide problem of plastic polluting the sea. But what about the water shortage in the Balearic Islands? Or land erosion?
Since 1993, Menorca has been designated a Biosphere Reserve, a distinction that classifies it as a place that has been able to develop socially and economically while preserving its natural worth. Nevertheless, overuse and overcrowding in summer put this fragile balance at risk. That’s why Carema Hotels wants to give you some tips to make your holiday more eco-friendly, and along the way you’ll help to preserve this little pocket of paradise on Earth.
Come with us 5,000 years back in time. On rudimentary wooden boats, the first humans arrived on the coast of an island that had not yet been named. They probably came from the neighbouring island, Mallorca.
And, perhaps, from the island now known as Sardinia. Although first of all they had to cross a vast expanse of sea, during which they would have lost sight of land for a long time. These were the first inhabitants of Minorca. Brave men and women who, in a period in which agriculture had only recently been discovered, dared to cross an as yet unexplored sea.
It rains. How can it rain IN MINORCA? Oh, my friend. Spring is fickle. And although the storms on the island are fleeting, springtime plans can quickly change with the weather.
