Guess what? Menorca is also named and spelled Minorca - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Menorca, one of the larger Balearic Islands, gets its name from Minorica, because it is smaller than Mallorca. Menorca is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and had influences from many civilizations. The first ancient civilization did not leave many traces but it was followed by Talaiotics, Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Normans, Arabs, the Spanish Kingdom, and the British Empire before it was fought back by Spain in the nineteenth century.
Today, Menorca has population of slightly under one hundred thousand people spread throughout the island. Unlike the other Balearic Islands, Menorca developed the tourism sector later, as the footwear and the agricultural industry used to be leading for the island economy. That means that the beaches and the natural landscapes are much better preserved and you can enjoy the sandy beaches of Menorca. In Menorca, you can find more than fifty beaches, from completely untouched and inaccessible by foot, to beaches full of tourists. There are lots of megalithic monuments on the island from ancient civilizations and you can visit the early Christian Basilica near the Son Bou Beach, the ruins of a fortress on Mount St. Agatha, the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Toro, and the Menorca Citadel.
Menorca hostels are mainly located in the town of San Luis. This is a small but nice town with good infrastructure. Of course, you can find Menorca hostels in the other towns on the island but booking a hostel in Menorca is not easy in the winter, as most Menorca hostels are open only during the summer season. A slight disadvantage of most Menorca hostels is that they are not situated near the sea and you need to travel to the beaches or even to have a nice sea view. Hostels in Menorca are normally high priced with satisfactory service and living conditions.
