savor: Spain/ Fornells, Menorca

ES PLA
Passeig des Pla
Fornells
34/97.137.66.55

The island’s most indulgent (and celebrated) dish is caldereta de llagosta, a spiny lobster stew, and the most famous place to eat it is at Es Pla in Fornells, a tiny, isolated fishing village on the north coast. Even the Spanish king comes here for the caldereta. Grand and breezy.
Justifiable splurge: caldereta.
Walk off lunch: around the well-protected port huddled at the mouth of a deep reaching bay.
Then: in a car follow the windy road to Cap de Cavalleria, the northernmost tip of the island, to the magnificent lighthouse that sits atop a sheer 300 foot drop to the rolling sea.
