This amazing destination, one of the most beautiful islands in all of Spain, offers endless things to do and see. Plus, the island is one of the most popular destinations with European travelers because its the perfect place to visit both in winter and summer.
The reality is that Menorca’s main tourist season is during the summer for reasons that are more than obvious: an excellent climate, spectacular beaches and coves, and remarkable cuisine. Most importantly, you can experience its charm in a more peaceful way and discover all its secrets without having to deal with the large crowds that some other islands tend to have during the summer months.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the island is also a highly attractive destination during the rest of the year. In fact, since it’s much less crowded, you can do more in Menorca than just beach and sun, so get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience.
One of the reasons to visit this summer is because Menorca has been chosen as the European Region of Gastronomy 2022. This recognition is awarded for contributing to a better quality of life by raising awareness of the importance of cultural and food uniqueness, stimulating culinary creativity and innovation.
Recognizing the potential of the different culinary, cultural, artistic and sustainable tourism resources of this small island in the western Mediterranean, the award enables the island to meet a series of objectives shared by the entire community, such as the development of local cuisine and a firm commitment to a sustainable future.
An island full of contrasts and packed with a personality all its own, Menorca is home to a rich natural heritage and an extraordinary legacy left by the series of cultures that have settled on the island over the centuries, dating back more than four thousand years; it is a unique model of cross-cultural cuisine.
The diversity of raw materials, the talent of its chefs, farmers and ranchers, the exceptional environment, and its extraordinary culinary legacy, has led Menorcans to promote their economy and tourism in a sustainable way, safeguarding the essence of the island and its magnificent heritage.
Which is why highly educational events and activities that are open to the public are held throughout the year. Festivals, markets, activities, cooking demos, conferences, fairs and more will be celebrated over the coming months.
This award means your visit to Menorca will be even better, because beyond a sun and beach vacation destination, the island is home to countless secrets that you can only discover by venturing into its interior.
