Spain’s beguiling island of Menorca

Colorful buildings light up Mahon, the capital of Menorca, Spain. A British influence lingers in the city, a holdover from 18th century rule that greatly benefited the island.
Fall is an ideal time to visit the beaches of Menorca, including Cala Mitjana. The calm waters are great for snorkeling, and a cave off the side is easily explored.
At night, the Cova d’en Xoroi bar on the southern cliff of the island of Menorca, Spain, turns into a nightclub with live music or DJs.

People dine on the coast of Ciutadella on the island of Menorca, Spain. The city was the island’s fortified capital until Turks sacked it and the British moved the capital across the island to Mahon.

If you go

MENORCA: Through the winter, several airlines offer direct flights to Mahon from the Spanish mainland and several European capitals. In nice weather, overnight ferries from Barcelona are the insider’s way to go. Spanish and a dialect of Catalan called Menorquin are the local languages, but many people, especially in the tourism industry, speak some English.
