Beach hopping in the Balearics

With over 100 miles of coastline to explore, Minorca boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Beach hopping is all part of the fun so why not rent a car and explore the island at your own pace? One of the best ways to enjoy Minorca is by boat. From sleek yachts to luxury catamarans, cruises unlock access to the island's hidden coves and beaches. You'll also get a chance to snorkel in crystal-clear water. While Minorca treats visitors to a lively social scene, luxury Minorca vacation rentals offer the freedom to throw your own sunset soirees.

Sip on Balearic botanicals

Minorca is home to a handful of strongholds, including the mighty Fort Marlborough. Today you can wander through military tunnels, peer into cannons and admire sweeping views of the Cala de Sant Esteve inlet. For a glimpse at the island's ecosystem, pencil in a trip to Parc Natural S'Albufera d'es Grau. The emerald lagoon is a haven for kites, fish eagles, Hermann's tortoises and other wildlife. Minorca has been distilling gin since the 18th century. You can admire the 100-year-old copper stills at the Xoriguer Gin Distillery and, naturally, pick up a bottle of your favorite botanical blends

With sparkling pools and lush gardens, Minorca vacation rentals make it easy to build up a golden suntan. Even in winter, the island is still warm enough to sunbathe, beach hop and explore its myriad of attractions.

A protected paradise
