Menorca, declared a biosphere reserve by Unesco since 1993, is surprising because of its virgin nature when it comes to an island in the western Mediterranean.

In addition to the large number of coves and corners where anchoring, sail sailing is a gift to the senses, and if it is a week making life on board much more, I know this island very well and I guarantee you will take to the corners more Beautiful and special of this jewel of the Mediterranean. We will combine the journey with land excursions and some visits to places of interest such as the beautiful Citadel of Menorca.
