Discover Menorcan culture, history and delicious cuisine at Villa Le Blanc Gran Meliá Hotel. Visit exceptional locations in Menorca that will simply leave you speechless. Meet local artisans and artists in their workshops, help make traditional Menorcan products using age-old techniques and observe a night sky full of stars and secrets.
Enjoy the earliest sunrise in Spain in Menorca. Admire it from a traditional llaüt sailing boat on the crystal-clear waters of Menorca. We’ll take you to the Isla del Rey for a guided tour of the Hauser & Wirth gallery and its surroundings. After the visit, savour breakfast in a private room in the museum. And on the way back, choose between a visit to the Illa de Colom or Cales Coves and Porter. You can also snorkel or paddlesurf. And when we get back on land, make a toast with a traditional Menorcan “pomada”.
Discover typical Menorcan products in the company of the finest instructors. Choose between visiting a traditional cheesemaker to learn how the cheese is made and enjoy tasting local products, visiting a Menorcan wine and vermouth producer with a delicious tasting session, or meeting an expert in making traditional Menorcan sandals to learn the tricks of the trade. In addition, you can visit one of the workshops of artists such as Turid Tarabay, Nuria Román or 2ManyFlowers, who will open the doors to their workshops for a good chat and a great cocktail.
Experience a journey through the authentic native Talayotic culture in Menorca. A marriage between heaven and earth and a chance to learn more about the history and everyday life of the first settlers on the island. A 4x4 route will take us through the Santa Ponça quarry to two of the most stunning Talayotic ruins on the island. The visit to the last ruins, with the sunset as a backdrop, includes a tasting dinner with Menorcan products and Talayotic beers accompanied by stargazing with a telescope to see the stars, nebulae, clusters and constellations.
Climb the highest peak on the island and view the typical Menorcan countryside with a bird's eye view. A landscape carved out over the centuries by local farmers, building more kilometres of the typical dry-stone walls of the Menorcan countryside than the Great Wall of China. Admire the fortress that dominates the port of Mahón, one of the 5 largest fortresses in the world and an essential part of the history of Menorca since ancient times. Enjoy an exclusive view and fall in love with the sunset from the Hornabeque and stargazing with a telescope.

Enjoy a horseback ride along the historic Camí de Cavalls route to the south coast of the island and marvel at the spectacular scenery. After you finish the route, enjoy a picnic with typical Menorcan products in the most exclusive setting: a small nature reserve in Son Bou surrounded by a herd of free-roaming horses. All accompanied by live music and a private Menorcan dressage performance.
