Often upstaged by her showy siblings Ibiza and Mallorca, Menorca, the most easterly of the Balearic Islands, is also the most discreet and the island to head to for a more peaceful villa holiday. The landscape – with its deserted golden-sand beaches, transparent turquoise sea, rolling olive groves, dry-stone walls and rocky headlands – is punctuated by charming white-washed fishing villages and two sea-splashed cities, eastern Anglo-Spanish Maó and western labyrinthine Ciutadella. Outdoor adventures are the best way to experience the rugged beauty of Menorca. Climb the island's only mountain, Monte Toro, to take in its remarkably unspoilt 135-mile coastline or walk the rugged wildness of S'Albufera des Grau National Park. Dotted throughout the island are archaic Bronze Age stone monuments: talayots (stone mounds that may have been watchtowers date back to 2,000 BC), navetas (stone tombs) and t-shaped altars called Taulas, which mix a touch of mystery with a heap of history.  Farmhouse or finca, in the foothills or minutes from the beach, live the cool, carefree Menorcan life with Red Savannah.
