Brief description of the holiday
Feel the Mediterranean and enjoy the tranquility of the coves of Menorca and Mallorca.
Mallorca offers more than just sun and beach. Its nature is impressive , with landscapes such as the Sierra de Tramuntana and the natural parks of S'Albufera, Mondragó and Sa Dragonera . And Menorca, which has idyllic landscapes barely altered by the passage of time, megalithic monuments and beautiful beaches, is the island declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. Come with us to discover these beautiful islands.
Our base is located in the marina of Porto Colom , a village that includes two areas: the small port , crowded with fishing boats, where you can still breathe the flavor of a real seaport, with a promenade full of restaurants and typical bars ; and the oldest part of the village behind the port with its charming square surrounded by delightful pastel-colored villas.
Porto Colom is the largest natural port in the Balearic Islands, extending around a long and irregular bay surrounded by a series of small beaches. This is the ideal starting point to discover the beauties of the island and above all of the east coast, the most fascinating and interesting from a naturalistic point of view. From here you can easily reach the Coves de Drach (Dragon Caves) and the Coves de Artà , spectacular caves shaped by the tireless work of water. Another point easily accessible from Porto Colom is the island of Menorca, with its spectacular Port Mahòn . We will focus a lot on the island of Menorca. In the surroundings of Porto Colom, in addition to a series of promontories that overlook the mouth of the bay and which host an imposing lighthouse, there is also the beach of Cala Marcal , made up of fine white sand and bordered by Mediterranean vegetation

PROGRAM of principle
Day 1 • Cala Moltò (Mallorca): Leaving the gulf of Porto Colom in the direction of Menorca, it is a must to stop at Cala Moltò.
Cala Moltò Beach is a Natural Area of Special Interest according to the decision of the Parliament of the Balearics. It is a suggestive sandy beach about 100 meters long, dotted with various rocks and pebbles and immersed in a virgin landscape with a wild charm, a real paradise of peace surrounded by pines shaped by the wind. The beach is bordered by rocks and low rocky areas and has on the sides some artisanal fishermen's huts and an old bunker from the Civil War. The sea is beautiful, with shades from turquoise to emerald, crystalline and transparent, with sloping and rocky bottoms like the shore, ideal for swimming.
Day 2 • Ciutadella (Menorca): Located at the extreme western point of the island of Menorca, Ciutadella rises high above the port, built on a canal leading to the sea.
The architecture of Ciutadella is wonderful, narrow cobbled streets with Baroque and Gothic buildings.
The gothic cathedral is definitely a place to visit!
Nightlife, beautiful beaches and a lot of history: welcome to Ciutadella
It is the second most important city on the island of Menorca, the busiest place for tourists during the summer and one of the places not to be missed on the island. We are talking about Ciutadella, a charming town north of the Balearic island.
The city is the ancient capital of the island and absolutely not to be missed is the Gothic Cathedral dating back to the fourteenth century as well as the famous bell tower that characterizes it.
Day 3 • Cala Covas (Menorca): The natural sea caves have been inhabited since prehistoric times. From the sea it is difficult to see them, which makes them even more special.
Protected by impressive and spectacular cliffs, Cales Coves is a small paradise, which is part of the municipality of Alaior.
The beach is not large, but the sand is very thin and the sea is always very calm - so much so that it sometimes looks like a swimming pool - which makes it the perfect area for swimming.
Furthermore, the cliffs protect it from strong north winds, letting a light breeze pass that cools without bothering. Even in summer it is not particularly crowded.
Day 4 • Mahon (Menorca): Mahon is a beautiful historic port town, a mixture of all the cultures that have occurred on the island of Menorca. It is the capital of the island of Menorca. It is known for the English Georgian houses and the marina. The town develops around the largest and longest natural harbor in the Mediterranean. From the port, through the various alleys, it is possible to reach the historic center in colonial style. Quiet during the day and lively at night, Piazza De S'Esplanada is the hub of the city's nightlife.
To visit the church of Santa Maria and the Pont de Sant Roc.
Day 5 • Porto Petro (Majorca): Porto Petro is a port located between Cala d'Or and the Monfeado 'Natural Park; it is located in the lower part of a bay enclosed by two promontories: to the north east Es Frontet, and to the south-west Punta de Sa Torre.
The port of Porto Petro is very old, it is indicated in medieval portolans and mentioned in the archives of 1200, but it has retained its characteristics as a fishing port. The small town has two beaches, one of which is near the port.
