Menorca Spain provides the visitor with confirmation that there are locations in Spain that have not been overly exploited and instead retain all the natural charm and crystal clear waters that made Spain Europes favourite holiday
An abundance of small coves with white sand beaches and waters teaming with marine life can be found at the end of winding, stone walled country lanes and
all protected under the "Biodiversity reserve" laws leave visitors to Menorca enchanted year after year!
But the island is not just about "natural" beaches and waters, over a thousand distinct archaelogical sites from early man are packed into narrow 50km width
between Mahon and Ciutadella. Thats before one even starts to explore the historical and cultural attractions in Menorca from occupations as diverse as the phonecians and Moors through to the French and British of the 18th and 19th centuries!
