What to see in Minorca
Minorca offers a few historic sightseeing opportunities, but
most noteworthy places worth visiting are the exquisite, unspoilt
beaches with soft, white sand and crystalline waters, or the
fantastic old villages, which in themselves are attractions.
In Mahon, explore the waterfront, take a tour of the 3.5 mile-long (5.6km) natural harbour on a glass-bottom boat, visit the Xoriguer Gin Distillery and admire the beautiful architecture. Head out to Fornells on the north coast for the day to enjoy a lazy lunch and spot of shopping in this sleepy fishing village, and organise a scuba dive in the marine reserve while you're there.
The north offers stunning remote beaches such as Cavalleria, Son Parc and Cala Tirant, or visit the lighthouse at Cap de Cavalleria. Head to the 13th Century town of Ferreries for lunch or the west coast port town of Ciutadella where fantastic restaurants abound. Check out the oldest roofed building in Spain at Naveta dels Tudons on the way to Cuitadella, or visit Minorca's highest point of Monte Toro in Es Mercadal.
