How to Spend 2 Days in Menorca
Two days in Menorca gives you time to explore the countryside, try out watersports, and discover the island’s historic towns, ruins, and culture. See below for how to get the best from two days on this small yet adventure-filled island.
Day 1: Sights and Heritage
**Morning:**Familiarize yourself with Menorca on an island tour, which lets you skip the hassle of car hire. Tours typically cover highlights such the wetlands of Albufera Natural Park, Mt. Toro, and Mahon, the capital. For extra adventure, ride a Jeep to hidden coves and lighthouses, or hike part of the Cami de Cavalls coastal path.
**Afternoon:**Devote the afternoon to uncovering Menorca’s traditional culture at the Binnisues Natural Sciences Museum. This indoor-outdoor museum brings bygone ways to life with exhibitions, re-enactments, folkloric shows, and food tastings. Otherwise, rent a scooter and go off the beaten track to uncover remote villages and beaches.
**Evening:**Menorca’s sunsets are something special and boats make prime viewpoints. Cap your day on a sailboat cruise to savor drinks and nibbles as you absorb the sundowner views. If you prefer staying on land, book a table at one of the island’s many waterfront restaurants.
Day 2: Aquatic Adventure
**Morning:**Today’s all about fun in the sun. Jump on a Jet Ski to zoom across the waves, or opt for a gentler kayak or boat trip along the southern coast. Alternatively, use Menorca’s calm and clear waters to try out adventurous watersports such as flyboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, and snorkeling with a handheld, motorized seascooter.
**Afternoon:**Continue the water-based activities this afternoon at one of Menorca’s family-oriented waterparks. Ride the lazy river and slides at Splash park, or book an admission-ticket-and-transfer tour to AquaCenter, so you can dive into the fun without worrying about transportation.
**Evening:**After an action-packed day, spend the evening enjoying the island’s rustic, seafood-based cuisine. Cherry-pick a fish restaurant along Mahon’s harborfront or take a romantic table in Ciutadella’s backstreets.
