If you have come here looking for venues for weddings in Menorca, we already tell you something: Menorca never disappoints and it is not only us who say it, but also all those brides and grooms who are heading to the Balearic island to marry.
And as in Perfect Venue we want your day to be perfect, we have prepared this guide with everything that this paradise offers so that your wedding turns out like the one you have always dreamed of, and that is that this island, in addition to being unique, is one of the romantic walks to the altar.
Menorca has everything you need!
Virgin beaches and coves, inland villages with a lot of charm, rich gastronomy, historical monuments, dolmens, archaeological sites, the Mediterranean as a backdrop… is that not enough?
Keep reading because … this has only just begun!
It is a place of warm waters and sunny days
And it is that the Menorcan climate, in summer, has an average temperature of 25ºC, so yes, summer is the best time to get married! Since it allows you to enjoy the island in all its splendor.
A time that frees us from the rains, the cold, the humidity, and the winter wind, and that guarantees us a dip in its beaches, coves, and some dances in the parties and parades of the island.
There is nothing like the coves and beaches of Menorca
By excellence, these are the most requested spaces on the island, because after knowing them … few are the couples who get rid of saying yes to the sea!
Among the best coves, Macarella and Macarelleta stand out, thus considered by Menorcans and by everyone who visits them. These were formed as a consequence of the natural outlets of ravines, and are full of very fine and white sand.
Cala Mitjana and Mitjaneta are another small blue paradise, full of crystal clear waters and white sand that bathes a small natural bay. As well as Cala Es Talaier, the so-called hidden cove south of Ciutadella, and which is surrounded by pine trees.
As for beaches, the Son Bou beach is the largest beach, with almost two and a half kilometers of golden sand bathed by the Mediterranean, and on the beach itself, you will find ruins of an ancient early Christian basilica and a necropolis carved out of the rock. To marry between nature and history!
On the other hand, Cavalleria beach has a completely different charm, since it consists of thicker sand and a reddish tone, but with equally incredible waters and surrounded by wild nature.
A great landscape variety
Menorca makes up one of the landscapes with the highest ethnological and heritage value. Not everything was going to be the sea!
And it is that the Balearic island has ravines, dolmens, caves with stalactites and stalagmites, navetas, lagoons, vertigo ends, talayots, stone walls, and archaeological sites. For an authentic Roman or Islamic wedding.
But this is not all, because there are also a large number of agricultural farms and perfect land for agrotourism, as well as country corners for a most rural wedding.
And if what you are looking for is a high altitude wedding … Mount Toro! The highest on the island and ideal to say “yes I want” from the top and with spectacular views.
The gastronomy of Menorca
Being located in the heart of the Mediterranean, gastronomy can not be other than a true culinary oasis, since it gathers the soul of the sea and passes its dishes.
Did you know that the mayonnaise is originally from Mahón, a town in Menorca? And this is not all, because lobster has also been, for centuries, the most typical dish on the island, since to this day it continues to offer numerous ways of presentation, although the most popular is to eat it together with a sauce of vegetables and toasted bread: the stew, a must-have in island recipes.
To continue conquering your palate, we cannot leave without mentioning the partridge stew with cabbage, which consists of filling the partridge with bacon, sobrasada and black butifarra; baked stingray, accompanied with stewed potatoes and vegetables; nor the leg of lamb, a barbecue that includes 100% native suckling meat.
And for your banquet desserts, your guests will want nothing more than a table full of Menorca pastissets, cottage cheese and honey pudding, cocas, potato greixeras (potato sponge cake and almond flour), bitters (almond sweets), cuscussós (a Christmas sweet similar to marzipan), crespells (circular pasta), etc.
