Part of the Balearic Islands in the western Mediterranean Sea, Menorca is the second largest island after Mallorca. The uniqueness of Menorca? Being uncontaminated, wild and less known by the tourists. There are no such parties like in Ibiza, not many big hotel chains nor many all-inclusive resorts. Great part of the visitors that come to this island are looking for its peaceful atmosphere all-year round, enhanced by beautiful relaxing beaches and wonderful Mediterranean weather. In addition, for those who want to experience something more, Menorca gives the chance to visit several attractive cultural sites and to practice a wide range of open-air activities.
On the island you will find mainly small boutique hotels, cute white houses, and the classic rural fincas with the typical entrance gate of Menorca. And last but not least: the island was declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve in 1993, thanks to the hard work in conservation of a heritage and landscape that continues until nowadays to be of exceptional quality. Breath-taking landscapes, beautiful authenticity, unspoilt nature is what you can experience on this magic island.
