Menorca, Spain

With a history steeped in Grecian myth and Spanish conquest, Menorca is best known for its lively summer fiestas, creative Catalan cuisine, and distinctive biodiversity. Home to over 900 species of flowering plants, Menorca may awaken your inner botanist. The island’s unspoilt coastlines are ideal for a meandering morning ramble; grab your best boots and have a guide trek you through the thriving terrain. Visit tranquil Fornells harbour on the northern coast for an enriching bowl of caldereta langosa (lobster stew). Head inland to the main city of Maó for a palate-piquing plate of traditional Mahón cheese and spend the afternoon exploring the ruins of the Arch de San Roche city wall. In between sampling food and fiestas, be sure to investigate the prehistoric stone structures that are scattered throughout the island – an ideal chance to learn to tell your taules from your talaiots.

At the chef’s table

At the chef’s table

Restaurants in Menorca rarely have finer dishes than the ones at rustic boutique hotel Torralbenc. Their eatery, Sa Taula de Torralbenc, is housed in a former store-house for wine barrels and their drinks list is still impressive. Their high-end Mediterranean cuisine is made with seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, and their kitchen was formerly helmed by a Michelin-starred chef – so its gastronomic pedigree is reassuringly high. Guests can be served by the owners in the cosy dining room, or on the open-air terrace overlooking the greenery.
