Minorca is an island located in Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. Minorca, a part of the Balearic Islands, is divided into two parts, north and south. This beautiful island has a total population of around 82,000 inhabitants.
The island has an ideal Mediterranean climate, characterised by warm temperatures. The island is permanently cooled by the north wind. The best time to visit Minorca is from May to October. 
During the War of Spanish Succession, Minorca came under the British rule. During this period, Mao was termed as the capital and a naval base was established. The island was finally given back to Spain in 1802 under the Treaty of Amiens.
 
The culture of Minorca is a blend of British, French and Spanish influences. Craftsmanship including pottery, shoe-making and jewellery are important cultural elements.

Overall Guide : The island is home to some of the most magnificent stone monuments which serve as reminders of prehistoric human activity. One of the most popular attractions is Mahon, the capital city. The capital city, with its ancient Georgian architecture and natural... more harbours, is home to some of the best hotels and cafes in Minorca. Naveta dels Tudons, popularly known as the ‘Cathedral of Prehistoric Times’, is another popular tourist spot. Son Bou offers a breathtaking view of the city along with an exciting nightlife. Arenal d’en Castell, which offers its visitors plenty of water sports facilities, is also popular. Cala Blanca and Cala Galdana are the other two popular spots. Mare de Deu de Gracia, San Luis Equine Fiesta and Saint Joan Festival are the most important events celebrated throughout the island. While vacationing in Minorca, be sure to visit Fornells, the fishing village of the island, which is famous for its exotic seafood restaurants.

Overall Guide : Visit the bays off the beaten track, with a rental car or motorbike. Walk around Mahon, the capital, in the evening. The shops are open late, buy shoes and clothes because they are very affordable and of good quality. The... more best time is definitely from 20th to 30th June, up to 10th July.
