This book was useful as an overview or a starting place. It was simply inadequate as an on-location guide. It always seemed to provide 90% of the necessary information, missing that last crucial 10%.
For example, it described a walk to the shore that passed by a cave (Cova des Coloms). Many caves on the island are simple coves, so imagine our disappointment when, upon reaching this cave, it was essential that we have a flashlight to enjoy it. The guide failed to recommend bringing a light.
The guide described a walk to the "sea shore," but did not say that the "sea shore" has one of the longest and most beautiful beaches on the island, nor that it was a nude beach. We didn't think to bring towels.
Another example: The guide recommended a restaurant in Es Castell (Sa Foganya) and noted that it was vegetarian. The restaurant was fabulous, but the guide had the address incorrect, and there were no vegetarian options.
If you want a truly useful guide, buy one on the island. This was a fine book for helping us decide we wanted to go to Menorca, and it provided an overview of sights. But isn't that what the internet is for?
