Minorca: Too Good to be Overlooked   by Santo Thomas

Though on a map it looks a bit dwarfed in size in comparison to the big island of Mallorca next to it, Minorca (or Menorca as it's sometimes known) holds its own when it comes to attracting tourists from around Europe and abroad. Don't let its name fool you. It was given a "minor" name only because it bears less land than its more massive cousin. But when it comes to sun, sand, water, and natural beauty, Menorca is as much a holiday maker's dream as any Mediterranean destination.

Your flight will likely take you to Mahon, a breathtakingly beautiful port city and the capital of this Balearic Island. Its deep sea green and blue water harbors contrast delightfully with its white sand beaches, making Mahon both picturesque and perfect for leisure and recreation on the beach.

In fact, many seasoned tourists to Spain and the Mediterranean islands agree that Minorca's coastlines are unequalled in all of Spain and its territories.

And since Minorca is balmy for 11 out of 12 months every year, it's all but guaranteed that travelers are able to soak up the sun when they book a Menorca holiday.

Mahon is rife with splendid hotels and fine restaurants, clubs and bars. However, holiday makers who want to experience more of this spectacular island may want to consider spending time at Son Bou or Cala en Porter. These two resort developments, located near the city of Alaior, are on the island's central southern coast. It is about a 30 minute drive from the airport in Mahon. Only a short distance away from these is the resort of Santo Tomas in the district of Migjorn Gran which is also well worth a visit. All three of these resorts feature gorgeous beaches; in fact, Son Bou boasts the longest beach on the island, with an astounding two miles of white sand for visitors to enjoy, and it's peaceful too as the flights to Minorca don't fly that way incoming to Mahon Airport.

Although the scenery and terrain may be enough in itself to keep travelers busy for an entire vacation, Minorca is also rich in culture and history. This is visible in its renowned collection of ancient stone monoliths which bear tales of prehistoric times. Although Minorca has been a territory of Spain for over 200 years, there is still much evidence of its British roots; some English-style architectural influences are still apparent even after the passage of centuries.

Those with a penchant for the eclectic or the desire to experience Menorca in its more natural state may venture inland to take in its grassy meadows, stately villages and earthy farms. If you don't mind walking, you will find some coves and other natural areas that have not yet heard the roar of developer's machines.

The island holds something for everyone and travelers will find no shortage of ways to occupy their time. Whether you choose to spend most of that time frolicking on the beach, taking in cultural sites, or dining, dancing and partying in Menorca's clubs, your Minorca holiday is sure to be a memorable one.
