never having been to menorca before i really didnt know what to expect.so many people had said, its too quiet,its only small,i really was hoping that there was enough to do to keep my two children busy.
The resort of Santo Thomas is so small you can walk from one end to the other in about 10 minutes...but what a walk!
the streets are lined with flower laden trees, each of the 4 or five hotels are stood in imacculate gardens,the streets are spotless, the shops small and welcoming and the few bars are unobtrussive.
each of the hotels back on to the most beautiful beach, safe clean and not too crowded.
from the apartment i stayed in it was a 60 secong walk to the bakers aech morning for fresh rolls,then a morning on the beach or by the pool,maybe a trip out in the afternoon,but the evenings were something special..
there was virtually no traffic,i did not see one drunken person in the whole two weeks which made me happy to give the children who were 10 and 15 a little more freedom than i would have done anywhere else.
i have holidayed abroad for the lat 25 years and been to many places, some good some bad,but menorca has been the best yet.
