Cova d’en Xoroi
Urbanización Cala en Porter, Menorca
No one goes to Menorca without coming home with a snap from this spot, built directly into a cave cantilevered over the waves below,. It’s really more of a bar and disco than a restaurant, but reserve a ticket in advance (it gets crowded) or splurge for the daybed experience. Either way, you will be rewarded with some of the most epic water views from anywhere you perch to sip your cocktail. Trust us: The admission fee is worth it.
Carrer d'en Deià, 27, Mahón
The owners of Quintana Roo, a local interior design company, originally purchased this historic home to live in but eventually converted it to a five-room boutique hotel. Despite its location right in the center of Mahón, the only indication you’ve arrived is a red door (there is no sign). Each room is inspired by the fictional travels of “Telmo,” a fictional character whose story is woven through the building. Casa Telmo is far from minimal—antiques, wicker baskets, and tasteful curios fill every nook. The M suite, with its terracotta floors and blush pink bathroom, was an immediate favorite. For something smaller but no less grand, try the E suite, which is tucked under the eaves on the top floor and mimics a luxe safari tent with plush velvet club chairs and zebra hide rugs.
