Menorca, or Minorca, is one of the Balearic Islands. It is less touristy compared to the big neighbours Mallorca and Ibiza and is great place to combine culture, nature and beaches. About 90,000 people live on the island, which in 1993 was declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco to preserve areas like the Parc Natural S’Albufera d’es Grau wetlands and the island’s unique archaeological sites. Even in summer it is relatively quiet on the island and finding some secluded beaches is possible.
Menorca's surface cover approximately 700 square kilometres and the coastline is about 216 kilometres long. It has beaches but also rocky territories, coves and cliffs. The highest point is El Toro or Monte Toro, which is 358 metres above sea level.
