The Top Things to Do in Menorca

When you arrive on the sun-bleached beaches of Menorca after spending time on Ibiza or Mallorca, you will notice the drop in volume as it is more birdsong than dance. This easternmost Balearic island will move to its own mellow rhythm. The sea splashed cities of Anglo-Spanish Mao and maze-like Ciutadella are wonderfully low-key and very distinctive. The gold and white-sand bays which stud the 216 km of coastline are among the best in the Mediterranean. Heading inland, the island is more rural and has over 70,000 km of dry-stone walls which crisscross the rolling hills and fields between the villages.

A Half-Day Catamaran Trip

On this trip, you will be able to visit some of the unspoiled coves and beaches which are only accessible from the sea. You will also be able to snorkel in the clear and calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

The catamaran trip is suitable for the whole family, singles and couples. The open design of the surface and the comfortable hammocks will allow everyone to board from the elderly to babies. The crew of the catamaran will make you feel like part of the team. If you fancy a quick lunch at Palma then Menorca is only a boat trip from Palma.

When you sail on an exclusive catamaran, you will be able to discover new spots around the island while feeling very privileged. If you want a real disconnect from the routine of daily life, rushing around or stress, this is the opportunity for you. There is no better way to relax and enjoy a trip.

Zoo Lloc de Menorca
