These are the best hotels in Menorca to stay in this year, hands down

Ah, Menorca. Often overshadowed by its louder and flashier neighbours (yes we’re talking about Ibiza and Mallorca), word of the quiet elegance of Menorca is finally getting out. With stylish hotels and trending galleries opening outposts on the island in recent years (see the Experimental group and Hauser & Wirth) and what felt like half of fashion Instagram decamping to the island recently for Mango’s summer collection launch, Menorca is a must-visit destination this summer.

The smallest of the major Balearic islands at half the size of the Isle of Wight, Menorca is largely undeveloped. A UNESCO biosphere reserve, the island has an endless choice of white-sand stretches and picturesque coves alongside some of the most turquoise water in the Mediterranean. Forget high rise complexes or party resorts, instead you’ll find a beautiful rugged green interior, a smattering of whitewashed villages and just two main towns: Mahón (Maó, it’s name in the local language) on the East and Ciutadella de Menorca on the West. Both serve as great bases if you want a buzz on your doorstep or the ease of a car-free break but some of the loveliest accommodation can be found in former country houses that are scattered across the island in rural areas.

The good news? As Menorca is so small, you are never far from the coast. With an abundance of produce available on the island, eating well is easy. Organic and farm-to-table concepts are proving popular (look at Nonna Bazaar) while there’s a myriad of options for seafood and paella (see En Caragol).
