Because Menorca is less of a tourist destination, it doesn’t have the same level of infrastructure as Ibiza, which means that public transport is pretty sparse. This lends itself to hiring a car as the best choice if you want to see and do much more during your stay. While there may not be as many well-known tourist attractions here, there’s still plenty to discover and explore for those who like to get off the beaten track on holiday. The authentic lifestyle of the island is evident in Ciutadella Old Town, which still has cobblestone streets. The intriguingly shaped sandstone quarries at Ses Pedreres de s’Hostal are worth a visit, as is Monte Toro, a 13th-century church atop Menorca’s highest hill. For a quieter and more remote beach than those in the resort areas such as Cala Galdana, you can drive to Cal Turquet, located in a pine tree alcove.
Even though you’ll be driving on the right-hand side of the road, which will take some adjustment, finding your way around is easy enough, as all the road signs are in English. The one thing that you might find a little arduous about driving on the opposite side of the road is that you’ll be changing gears with your unfamiliar hand, so it might be a good idea to just forego that and hire an automatic vehicle. There aren’t any major motorways, and you won’t find many dual carriageways either, so the maximum speed limit on the island is 80 km/h (about 50 mph), rather than the 120 km/h (75 mph) on Ibiza. Parking is easy to come by no matter where you are, so you won’t have to be concerned about that.
You’ll have to be at least 20 years of age to hire a car in Menorca. Having said that, you should also note most car companies, including when booked through KAYAK, only make certain vehicle models available to those under 23. If you want to hire one of the more powerful models, for example, you’ll have to be 23 or older.
