Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Menorca or Minorca comprises a part of the Balearic Islands of Spain. A botanist’s paradise, the island was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993. Come spring, the island’s undulating meadows get carpeted with wildflowers. Menorca’s coast, fringed by pine trees, is renowned for its endless beaches, where miles-long sandy crescents and rocky, turquoise-watered bays welcome the visitor. Mahon, the island’s capital, is decked with Georgian mansions and a 13th-century church.
