My first time in Menorca. After falling head over heels for Mallorca last year (and having gone back twice since) I decided I wanted to explore neighbouring Balearic Island Menorca, too.
It was quite a last minute trip and we decided to pick staying in the Ciutadella over beach side (although, of course the city is on the water and near beaches too) which we ended up loving as there was so much on our doorstep and we could walk and wander for meals rather than having to drive everywhere. We stayed at Faustino Gran which I had been recommended by a friend – and it was amazing! They have two properties right next to each other (split by one of the small city streets) and we stayed in the second one which has the incredible pool view that goes on to the back of the Cathedral there.
As I was with Olive, we wore lots of the new Cooke & Kin collection – the printed skirt and bikinis are from there and they’re going to be summer staples for sure.
Some favourite beaches:
– Cala en Brut
– Platja de Cala Galdana
– Cala Mitjana (go early and beat the crowds)
Places to eat:
– Menorca Experimental (need to stay here next time too!)
– Restaurant El Hogar del Pollo (local cuisine with a fun hectic vibe)
-Sa Nacra (great sunset view)
I really want to go back an explore more, it has such a relaxed vibe and is much smaller than Mallorca so you can drive around the whole island a lot more easily.
