Magical Menorca

04 September 2020 | Menorca, Spain
Nichola Wright
A return to Menorca was high on our list of places to visit during our bonus summer of sailing in the Balearics. It turned out to be worth the return - we spent almost two weeks enjoying the varied coastline with soft sandy beaches and turquoise water providing idyllic anchorages amongst the ragged coastline. A hiking trail that circles the island provided exercise and the underwater landscape was as beautiful as that above.

The island had a laid back, chilled air, with pastoral scenes inland and pretty villages dotting the coast. We experienced a heatwave whilst we were there, breaking down into a mistral that chased us around to the south of the island.
