Winter in Menorca



Winter in was approaching as we left Menorca a week ago after an idyllic two week break. On a couple of days rain and an unseasonal coolness took us by surprise and kept us out of the swimming pool.

We have taken a holiday in late October and had perfect weather but the autumn is the wetest time of year. As we sat in departures at Mahon Airport it was quiet and quite frankly peaceful.

In November the airport will be near deserted as the main holiday season ends and many hotels and apartments are closed until next May.

When I got home I serched the internet for winter breaks and found little on offer. I remembered that Monarch fly each Friday throughout the year from Luton Airport and so I searched for accommodation using the Official website of the Menorca Hotel Association and found a facinating Villa on offer this winter, with its own indoor pool!

So why would anyone want to visit Menorca out of season? Many facilities are closed but gone are the crowd. The temerature and weather conditions are akin to springtime in the home counties and a daytime temperature allows a leisurely visit to many of the islands unique features such as the pre-historic settlements and the Eco Museum near Cape Cavalleria.

Winter allows you to see Menorca in a different light. The gentle sunlights emphasises the wonderful colours of the countryside. It also allows you to visit Algendar Gorge with its diversity of fora and fauna.
