One of three Balearic islands near Spain is called Menorca. It is situated in the lovely Mediterranean Sea. There are many exciting things to see and do that make good package holidays in Menorca for the family.

Menorca’s capital is known as Mahon. It is the principal port of the island. It makes a nice attraction in and of itself as it is also a natural harbour.

It makes for a great attraction and you can also take good photos, even from the sea. There is a green park in the middle of the capital called Es Freginal Park. There are flower exhibits to see and you can also bring a packed lunch to eat. The jazz festival is also hosted here in the park.

If you are into hiking, there are many great places in Menorca for this. The hilly regions make great trails and lead to natural reservations. Another way to see the attractions of Menorca is cycling. It is also fun, especially if you are into mountain biking and are looking for challenging places to ride.

The waters that surround the island carry a variety of sea creatures. The waters are calm and this makes diving and snorkeling great pass times. Courses are available if you want to learn scuba diving. It is a more expensive activity than snorkeling, but both are lots of fun.

“Festes de Sainte Joan” is an occasion that is celebrated in Ciutadella every year. Ciutadella was the capital of the island at one point in time, but it still remains as its religious capital. Horses make up a great part of the occasion and it is exciting to see what they can do. It is usually held in June.

There are many other scenes and pass-times that make package holidays in Menorca for the family. Everyone can find something that suits their taste and have an enjoyable time.
