Menorca

Menorca (or Minorca) was named after the Spanish word 'menor', meaning smaller, so that the name already reveals that Menorca is indeed smaller than its neighboring islands. As so, the majority of holidaymakers flock to the more publicity-prone islands of Mallorca and Ibiza, while Menorca attracts those who want the best of the Balearics without losing themselves in the crowd. The stunning coves with white sand beaches are a draw by themselves but the historic remains of the British occupation, the countryside, and the tranquility of this quieter isle all make for its charm that attracts visitors year by year, and always again.
