The Windy Island of Menorca

By Frederick Pollard Subscribe to RSS | July 2nd 2012 | Views:

The personality of this island in Balearic Islands category is quite charming and strong as compared to the rest. You will find the island to be very different especially because most of its interior is virgin as compared to other major islands in the group. It has a rich history though which is always interesting for the visitors coming here to have a feel of the windy island.

On the island you will find lonely bays and beaches from where you can spend some fun time. It is the best resort area for people looking for maximum relation, peace and quiet. On the southern part or Menorca are white sandy beaches Migjorn with pine woods as the surroundings. The vegetation on this part is also rich. The northern coast on the other hand has is much steeper and rocky but with wonderful views and natural beauty.

Mahon is the capital of Menorca and it is worth visiting. Here you will get to see and enjoy a natural park, charming village of Villacarlos, and excellent bays. There is also another small island Es Colom not very far from the beach. Sant Lluis is another place that is definitely worth visiting while in Menorca. It is a small village and you will find the splendid beaches amazing. They are quite urbanized and therefore bound to give you a comfortable stay while here.

Still in Menorca, there is Torret a town made up of white house’s representing the typical Menorca architecture. There is also Calas Covas which is very interesting for the fact that people here still live in caves with transistor radios as their only communication with the world. It is an interesting place and which has remained as a major attraction.

Alaior, an industrial town cannot be missed while in Menorca. It is famed for shoe production and has a narrow lane historical center. Within the center you will find interesting manorial houses and walls which are whitewashed. Within the surroundings are historical remains and a basilica which is of recent times.

Mercadal is also worth a visit. It sits at Monte Toro Mountain foot. Great views of the island can be enjoyed from the mountain which happens to be the highest in this island. Also interesting within the area are the wonderful beaches and the pre historical remains. There is a lot to see and learn within the island as long as you take the time to explore.
