Holiday Apartment Rentals in Menorca, Spain

Jun 19, 2008
For those of you interested in ancient ruins, Menorca has a greater quantity than probably any other Mediterranean island. It has been described as a huge open-air museum. The taulas, massive T-shaped rock monoliths, the talyots, prehistoric watchtowers on the top of hills, and the navetas, prehistoric burial chambers, abound all over the island. The naveta of Es Tudons is a short walk off the main trunk road just outside Ciutadella and is one of the oldest buildings in Europe.

Anyone with a hire car should take the opportunity to drive up Monte Toro, the highest point on the island, just outside Mercadal. Splendid views of the island are guaranteed and on a really clear day the mountains of Majorca can be seen.

Menorquins are great music lovers and there are always opportunities to hear and see choirs, chamber music groups, organists and even opera.

Menorca has much to offer her visitors - from quiet unspoilt coves and prehistoric villages to sub-aqua diving in underwater caverns and shopping in historic towns.

Menorca is prized for the tranquility of its numerous beaches. This works out to well over a hundred of them. From tiny coves to vast stretches of sand. Even the most populated beaches are relatively unspoilt and the water is normally crystal clear and aquamarine - exactly as advertised on the postcards and brochures.

Menorca boasts a lovely Mediterranean climate with hot and sunny summers that are just perfect if you're looking for a family beach holiday or a secluded beach to get some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

However, if you want to be more active during your holiday, then there is no shortage of things to see and do. Why not explore the island by foot? There are plenty of opportunities to take in the beautiful landscapes and you get to see so much more this way than you would if you were in a car.

Other activities on offer in Menorca include sailing, water sports (including water-skiing, parasailing, canoeing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and banana boat rides), scuba-diving, horse-riding and cycling. You will be spoilt for choice on the island.

While you are staying on the island of Menorca, try to witness one of their traditional fiestas. They are great fun to see and provide a great atmosphere, with parading horses, singing, dancing, firework displays etc. If you've got kids in tow, they will love it.

If time will allow, try to visit the Menorca's historic capital city, Mahon. It boasts a large, natural harbour and offers a good selection of restaurants and bars. It also has some great shopping opportunities. The town of Ciutadella, which was the island's original capital, is another great place to check out. You can take a stroll and discover its charming narrow streets or just relax in one of the many cafes in the area.

Rental properties are easy to find if you search on the Internet. It is best to go self catering for the best cultural experience. Self catering apartments or house rentals direct from the rental properties owner will usually be the most affordable.

Whether you are looking for a long or short term rental, you should be able to find your ideal property in Menorca.
