OFF THE BEATEN TRACK IN THE BALEARIC ISLANDS
There is no lack of beautiful scenery in the Balearics; visit its parks and reserves to enjoy nature preserved in all its glory. We particularly recommend the mountains of Tramuntana on the north coast of Menorca, whose dramatic appearance will take your breath away.
NIGHTLIFE & BEACH CLUBS
The rich nightlife of these islands is no secret; party until sunrise in some unique destinations, for example the Cova d’en Xoroi in Mahón, the capital city of Menorca – this disco, situated in a natural cave, is guaranteed to give you a night you will never forget.
Discover isolated coves along the rocky and sandy coastline. Be assured that you will be able to anchor in a paradise reserved for you: by yacht you will always be able to find privacy because many of the island’s beautiful coves and inlets are difficult to access except by private boat.
