Menorca has around 216 kilometres of coastline, much of it made up of an almost endless series of beautiful beaches and coves. There are beaches that will suit all tastes, from long beaches to hidden sandy coves enclosed by rocky headlands, although all of them have one thing in common, their crystal waters.
A magical island with underwater caves, green rolling hills and gorges crossing from one side of the island to the other. Although the attractions you can find in Menorca are of huge variety yet remains the most untouched and tranquil of all the Balearics. The island was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993, to conserve and protect both its natural habitats and strong cultural identity.
