Cales Coves in Minorca Island

 

 

Situated in the Mediterranean Sea is Minorca, a Spanish territory that belongs to the Balearic Islands. 
 
If you wish to encounter a different Spanish experience with lesser crowds and quieter vacations spots, then Minorca is the perfect getaway island for you. Enjoy its countless virgin beaches, delectable alfresco cuisine and tranquil holiday spots, and you’ll realize that a visit to this island is just like no other.
 
New York Times Travel writer Sarah Wildman visits Minorca and shares that this does not only takes pride in its pristine beaches but also in so much more (“Off the Coast of Spain, a Tranquil Biosphere Reserve”). She observes that there is little change to the “facades of rose and dusty yellow stone, and the narrow streets” around the island’s capital, Ciutadella.
 
Here’s a short excerpt from her enlightening article:
 
 
The rest of the island is imbued with the same timeless quality. Though only 21 miles from the crowds and hustle of its high-profile neighbor, Majorca, the difference couldn’t be more profound. Unlike Majorca, with its sprawling hotel complexes, glitzy nightclubs and yacht-filled ports, this island 250 miles east of Barcelona offers something unusual for a Mediterranean resort: tranquility.
