Among the Balearic Islands, Menorca tends to be the overlooked little sibling, quietly living in the shadow of its bigger and brasher sisters, Ibiza and Majorca.
UNESCO designated the entire island of Menorca a biosphere reserve in 1993, while local authorities have been gunning for World Heritage status for Menorca's prehistoric monuments - and it's easy to see why.
Even the urban areas are pretty. To the east of the island in Menorca's capital Mahon, for example, you will find bars and restaurants set around a picturesque harbour. The historic Ciutadella de Menorca on the western shore, meanwhile, offers a fascinating glimpse of the island's past.
Check out Cala'n Bosch for cheap all-inclusive Menorca holidays that allow you to be close to the city charms of Ciutadella, but far enough away to feel you have truly escaped the rat race. Cala'n Blanes, with its caves, quiet beaches and proximity to Ciutadella is also a great spot for all-inclusive Menorca getaways.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
