Holidays to - Minorca
The island of Minorca (Menorca) is ideal for couples and a great choice for family holidays. The island remains a picturesque and almost tranquil holiday destination, the local planners managed to resist the high rise developments that its neighbouring islands fell victim to during the package tour boom of the sixties and seventies and because of that the island has remained largely unspoilt and relatively peaceful. Holidays to Minorca offer a picturesque setting with glorious beaches and a family-orientated atmosphere. The island is made up of more than 100 beaches, pine forests, rocky outcrops, rolling hills and traditional fishing villages. Holidays in Minorca are not complete without a visit to the island's capital, Mahon with its 18th-century gin distillery and bustling local markets. One of Mahon's other claims to fame is that it is the site of the world's second deepest natural harbour. more...
