Minorca is busiest in the summertime, but can still be a great winter time visit. It is recommended that you visit in the summer. When planning a trip, think about staying at a resort. These are usually located on the beach and near towns, which gives you the advantage of being able to shop and go out to eat, while still being steps from the beach.
Rent a car. You can drive Minorca from end to end in about an hour, so it is recommended that you rent a car as the island is only 35 miles long by 10 miles wide.
