Menorca is the second largest Balearic island.
The island kept a pretty unspoiled environment and became a Unesco’s biosphere reserve in 1993.
There is not exclusively gay venues on the island, but Menorca is very LGBT friendly.
The island has more than 70 beautiful and unspoiled beaches, generally far from major roads and urbanization.
Their access can be tough, and to get there, you will often roam through small pathways in the middle of the countryside.
Many local farms produce organic food, vegetables, fruits, and Menorca products are famous all around Spain for their exceptional quality.
Hence, this is the perfect destination for a full detox after your holiday in Ibiza, Mykonos or Berlin.
Minorca also has a unique prehistorical heritage.
All over the island, amid olive, almond or orange plantations, there are megaliths and funerary monuments.
In Cala Morell, dozens of tombs were dug into the cliffs. Some of them are 4000 years old.
For the sporty ones, or to help with your detox, the Cami de Cavalls, a 186 km ancient path, offers a full walk around the island.
It was created initially to defend the island from invasions and patrolled by soldiers and riders.
It is an exclusive way to discover the most secluded and remote coves. If you are lucky maybe you will find a desert beach, just for you and your boyfriend.
For a romantic sunset with your boyfriend, head for the Punta Nati lighthouse,
where you can discover impressive cliffs and a sun that plunges into the sea.
The capital of the island is Port-Mahon, but Ciutadella, the oldest city on the island, is a better place to visit.
The city’s main square, Praça des Born, is surrounded by Gothic and modernist mansions and palaces.

The gayest places on the island would be the naturist beaches,
such as Cala Pilar, Cala Caldere or Cala Mesquida which offer white sand, turquoise waters, and an unspoiled environment.
