Menorca is the second largest of the Balearic Islands, located to the northeast of Mallorca. People have been drawn Menorca for over 7,000 years, but somehow the Island has managed to remain one of the most unspoiled locations in the Mediterranean.
The Maó harbor, is the world´s second largest natural deep water port which has helped make this tranquil place one of the top yachting destinations in the world.
Despite its somewhat smaller size when compared to other Spanish islands, the numbers of beaches on the Menorca are equal to those found on both Ibiza and Mallorca put together. The potential for having a breathtaking beach, for the most part all to yourself during the summer months, combined with the tranquil resorts and alfresco dining options, makes Menorca one of the Mediterranean’s most highly desirable sailing destinations.
This exceptional Island, while being popular tourist destinations, still manages to be one of the most unspoiled and tranquil of the Balearic Islands. Its extensive, captivating coastline offers virtually untouched beaches and tranquil, hidden coves. Inland, you´ll find roughly 700km of ancient stone walls, criss crossing the Islands green rolling hills and fields that are quite an amazing sight to see. In 1993 Menorca was proclaimed a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, in an effort to preserve its many incredible environmental areas, including the island´s many unique archaeological sites and the Parc Natural S’Albufera d’es Grau wetlands.
