Why Snorkeling in Menorca is a Great Experience

The well-preserved Posidonia meadows in Menorca offer a great snorkeling experience. Menorca’s coasts will surprise you as they depict a great diversity of underwater flora and fauna, colors, and textures –things that we can never see on the surface of the land. 

Since Menorca’s waters are warm and crystal clear, they offer an ideal environment for snorkeling and swimming. However, we recommend the coast of the marine reserve located at Menorca’s north. Since the area is restricted to fishing, you will find different varieties of fish. 

While any cove or rocky beach corner is an ideal place to dive and snorkel, we suggest the easier parts for beginners, such as bays and inlets. 

Also, remember that not all beaches are accessible by car. So, even if you rent a car at Menorca airport or use our car hire services, you may have to walk for half an hour to reach your beach. Alternatively, you can hire a boat.
