Minorca or Menorca is the second largest of the Balearic Islands and is the least overrun of the islands but on your trip there consider our Menorca car hire services for your personal transportation needs while there. Due to it not being as overly populated by tourists as Mallorca is, Menorca offers a great chance for the more adventurous visitor to enjoy its unspoilt beauty.

The island is served by the Menorca Airport which sees regular flights both from the mainland as well as its sister islands; there are bus routes connecting the airport to the main settlements on the island but your best choice would be to employ our Menorca car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you could start driving towards your destination almost as soon as you land.

There are quite a few sights and attractions that you’ll probably want to visit while on your trip to the island, for instance if you’re into hiking or high places in general you’ll surely want to climb Monte Toro.

For the lover of liquor or just for anyone interested in local history, you can visit the Xoriguer Gin Distillery which was built in the 18th century and has been creating ever since a distinctly aromatic and rather tasty gin which you can only get on the island and only a very few European retailers.

The Museum de Minorca can be found in a former 15th century Franciscan monastery which exhibits the history of the island, the Roman and then Byzantine era as well as while it was under Ottoman rule.

Taking a stroll alongside the Mao waterfront is always something full of color and interest due to the many types of unique fishing boats anchored alongside it. Many are still built after the old Arab design but there are also interesting dwellings built into the cliffs as well as shops and restaurants.

These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while on Menorca but with the help of our Menorca car hire services you can see and do so many more so make sure to employ them while on your trip.
