IntroductionOne of the Balearic Islands, Menorca (sometimes written as Minorca) has fabulous sandy beaches (often at the end of long, bumpy lanes) and a relaxed atmosphere. Unlike Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca has escaped the worst of mass tourism and continues to be a relatively low-key destination—it's the last of the Balearics to choose if you're looking for a party spot, but it's a great place to rest and relax. Scattered villages and pine groves dot the low, rolling contours of the island. On a beautiful sea inlet, Mahon is the island's capital, and at the opposite side of Menorca is Ciudadella, its second city. Each merits a visit or overnight stay.
