Destination Guide to Menorca

Discover the beautiful island of Menorca with Avis

Menorca is the least overrun and therefore the most peaceful island of the Balearics. It is the second largest and northernmost island, tending to be a few degrees cooler than its neighbours. Indeed in the low season, winds from the North have lent this pretty island the nickname "windy island".

Menorca Road Trip

One of the great drives of Menorca is around the south east of the island. Head from Mahon into the small village of Sant Luis to get a fascinating glimpse of Menorcan life. Proceed on the coast road westwards, admiring the rocky landscape as you head towards Sant Climent. The final stop is the resort of Cala N Porter, where you can enjoy an afternoon drink in the Caves of Xoroi.
