Main attractions in Menorca, competing equally with the other Balearic Islands. Menorca is located approximately 200 km from mainland Spain and 40 km east from the largest island of Majorca. Unlike Ibiza and Majorca who are destinations for young travelers, Menorca is suitable for families with children.

Therefore it remains slightly off the offerings of tour operators. In other words, that special group of people seeking privacy and tranquility. On the other hand Menorkae the greenest of all the Balearic Islands. You may encounter coniferous pine forests, subtropical shrubs and date palms.

The reason for this greenery is more humid climate than other places. The active tourist season starts in early May and ends late October month. Mediterranean climate is humid and temperatures are steady between 20 ° C to 28 ° C.

Menorca will enchant you with its beauty and irresistible charm. Here there are no big beaches and hotels do not reach more than a few floors. As we wrote beaches, we should mention that in the north there are those who are lonely and can safely sunbathe naked.

The reason for this is desert terrain and lack of infrastructure. In the past, the island has been under authority of pirates and smugglers who were hiding in Son Saura, so we recommend this very lonely beach. Bookmark and Share
