Best Time to Visit

With its typically Mediterranean climate, and being the most temperate one of the Balearic islands, Menorca can be visited all year long, and due to its refreshing sea breeze, it also never gets too hot during the summer.

Keep in mind, therefore, that many establishments with outdoor activities can be closed during the colder months, but the islands will nonetheless be lively, and luckily also not as crowded as during the peak season.
