Menorca, the green jewel of the Spanish Mediterranean
Whether coming by air via Mahon´s recently re-built airport, or by sea into either Mahon or Ciudadela´s historic ports, a visit to Menorca is an experience that should not be missed.
The island, which is nominated “the green one” of the Balearics is situated to the north-east of them. I t is 700m2 approximately with a length of 53Km. (from Mahon to Ciudadela) and a width of 19.51Km. Menorca is not a big island, but this is what gives it charm.
As soon as you arrive, you can feel a slower pace of life along with its tranquility.
Even with the tourist industry, Menorca has been able to combine economic growth with a respect for its environment and from 1993 has been declared a Biosphere Reserve.
