Islanders enjoy lots of local dishes. Seafood takes pride of place: lobster and cuttlefish are cooked in lots of different sauces. Foodies go wild for Mahón cheese and sobrassada, a Menorcan sausage made with paprika. When it comes to cakes and confectionary, sweet or salty cocas and ensaïmada pastries are exquisite.

To see / do

Culture and history

Mahón, the capital city

Mahón, the capital city

Mahón (or the Port of Mahón), the capital of Menorca, is the island’s main port and the distance between the coastline and docking area is over 5 km! The city is peppered with beautiful landmarks that must be seen up close. Santa-Maria Church, Plaza de España square, the Town Hall and Fortress of Isabel II are all spectacular sights. And why not visit the Menorca Museum, installed in a former convent.

Ciutadella, the island’s former capital

Ciutadella, the island’s former capital

On the opposite end of the island, you’ll find Ciutadella. Ciutadella is more traditional than Mahón and you’ll enjoy wandering around its narrow, medieval streets. The city is dotted with stunning manor houses and palaces such as Salort Palace, the Palace of Olives and Palace Vivó. The Cathedral, Town Hall, fortress and churches contribute to the beautiful scenery of Ciutadella. 

S’Albufera des Grau nature reserve

Menorca is a unique island that’s been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. And within that reserve lies the protected S'Albufera des Grau nature reserve. The area, which is very humid, is home to a hundred bird species, native plant species and more. A number of pathways through the reserve mean you can observe nature up close.

Outings

Take a trip to a gin distillery

If the island has a national drink, it has to be gin made from grapes and juniper berries. Menorcan gin has been produced here since the 18th century. It rapidly became famous and is now exported worldwide.  Perhaps you’ve heard of Xoriguer gin? Well, you can visit the company’s distillery in Mahón. 

Cova d’en Xoroi

Cova d’en Xoroi

Cala en Porter is the most unusual place on the island to have a drink. Cova d’en Xoroi is a natural cave by the sea, and it’s been done up as a bar-nightclub. Several rooms are nestled into the side of a cliff, meaning you can gaze out at the incredible view and have a fun evening at the same time.

Gastronomy

Seafood stew

Seafood stew

In Menorca, why not try the local lobster stew, which is called Caldereta de Langosta. It’s made with bread, tomatoes, peppers, herbs and spices. The whole lot is cooked slowly so that the lobster flesh is soft and tender. It’s sometimes served with aïoli (garlic mayonnaise).

Ensaïmada, a type of bread made with lard

Originally from Mallorca, ensaïmada rapidly won the hearts of Menorcans who made it one of their specialities.  Ensaïmadas are small, sweet bread rolls made using reduced pork lard and cooked in a spiral.  They can either be plain or filled with sweet cream, fruit, chocolate or other treats. It’s up to you to find your favourite.
