  • General view of a beach in Minorca

A natural oasis bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, and with 216 kilometres of coastline full of undeveloped areas. An island that will enchant you with its harmony and diversity.Read more...

To talk of Minorca is to conjure up a paradise with over 70 beaches of fine sand and crystal-clear waters in a multitude of different shades. The beaches in the north have golden sand and the sea ranges from deep blue to aqua green, and the best are particularly Cala Morell and Arenal d'en Dastells, as well as other wilder beaches like Cala Tortuga o Cala Pilar. In the south you'll find some exclusive beaches like Macarella, Mitjana and Son Bou, coves with extra-fine white sand and turquoise waters. To explore the island from the sea, we suggest renting a boat. Gorges, caves, wetlands, islets and beaches... This diversity of landscapes on the island of Minorca has earned it the designation of World Biosphere Reserve from the UNESCO. One of the most outstanding areas is the S'Albufera des Grau nature reserve. The best way to explore the island is by taking some of the routes through the interior and along the coast. If you want to learn more about the island's past, Minorca is a huge open-air museum where you'll find enormous megalithic constructions such as the 'talues' (large T-shaped rocks) and 'talaiots' (old lookout towers).
