Menorca in Pictures

menorca1 We recently got back from a lovely summer holiday in Menorca. Its somewhere I’ve not been since I was 2 years old and it was such a beautiful island, I wanted to share some bits of our holiday with you. Usually we’re all about the food on this blog (don’t worry there’s a Menorca food post too here..) but another passion of my husband and I is travelling and photography, so what better place to share our photos than with you guys. I won’t ramble too much apart from to explain what the photos are of!

Firstly,Β The view from our hotel room.

One of the days we booked on a boat trip along the south coast of Menorca, which took us in and out of all the coves and beaches, many of which are only accessible by water. The boat could seat 12, but we were the only people on it. It was pure bliss, just us and our captain/tour guide and the open ocean. This house below looked a little precarious on top the the cliff…

There were lots of caves and rock formations that we explored on the boat

We stopped for a swim and a snorkel anchored off one of the coves – the sea was amazing, and loads of fish

We also hired a car for a couple of days and took in some of the islands sights. This is the statue at Monte Torro, the highest point of the island

And the view from the top – you could see the coast in every direction.

The harbour at Fornells, famous for its lobster!

This was at the caves of Xoroi – a network of caves built into the cliffs. A cafe by day and nightclub by night. An amazing space with amazing views.

    Hi All
    What a lovely way of showing the stunning Isle of Menorca too the world. It is by far the best of the Balearic’s in my opinion. The coast is just stunning and with Roast Beef for Sunday Dinner what more could one want lol. The Island just takes your breath away. Better than most tropical Isles and clean and civilized . A little chilly in winter if you can get a flight . I’d live there tomorrow if I had no family ties. Get a car and discover cove after beautiful cove , over 200 if memory serves me correctly and a lot more besides. I’ve been all over the world but Menorca cannot be beaten on sheer beauty and price if you know where to look. Low key and quiet off season with good EU funded roads and clean drinkable water . The EU does have it’s benefits after all LOL. Thanks for a great Blog Roz.

    Take care
    Pete
