Festivals in Menorca run all the way through the year. Horses play a major part in them, particularly in the Sant Joan which is held in June - this colourful event attracts people from all over Spain. Another significant event is Día de la Hispanidad which occurs on 12th October. The day is a national holiday to mark Christopher Columbus discovering the New World in 1492, and sees soldiers taking part in a military parade.

If you are visiting Menorca as a family then spending a day at the zoo is a must. You have the chance to get up close to animals like tree dwelling monkeys, kangaroos and emus. Many of the animals are free to roam around the park. Take a trip to the Cathedral and admire the architecture or learn all about Menorca's history at the Museum of Menorca.

Average maximum temperatures remain above 22 °C from May through to October peaking in August with an average daily maximum temperature of 30 °C.
