Menorca

Beautiful island in the Med with friendly residents. More info here.

Son Parc

Quiet resort on north coast. Beautiful beach - shallow water, sheltered bay, white sands with extensive backing dunes.
Out of season (Nov-April inclusive) is VERY quiet, very green and there are hardly any cars / buses on the roads.

Flights

All go into Mahon - just 25 mins from Son Parc. Try Monarch from Luton (2 hour flight) - you may find others from your local airport -
mine is Leeds-Bradford where Jet2.com have a seasonal service and Monarch have just started a new route.
Or try one of these: Cheap Flights, Flightfile, Skyscanner, Thomson Flights, Excelairlines, UK Net Guide, Travel Care (the Co-op), This is Travel,
