8 Days from £779 | October 779

The island of Menorca may be just 30 miles long and 10 miles across, but it hosts a world of contrasts. The north is comparatively lush and green, with extensive bays and long headlands. The south is much rockier and riddled with caves. At the eastern end lies the island’s capital Mahon, a historic city well worth exploring, whose fine deep-water harbour led to British and French occupation in the 18th century (in 1756 the British Admiral Byng was court-martialled and shot for losing it to the French ‘pour encourager les autres’!). To the west lies Ciutadella, a former island capital, again with impressive city walls and harbour, but much quieter than the capital. But it is the island’s unspoilt beaches and coves that may impress you most of all: our resort area of Son Bou is home to one of the best of them. Menorca was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in October 1993.
