Cala Mitjana, Menorca, Balearic Islands

You probably already know that Menorca is silhouetted by a whopping 50 beaches on its 220 km of coastline and that the coves of the Island of the Eight Winds have nothing to envy to the waters of the Caribbean. If you know, it is because you are preparing a trip to this nearby corner of the Mediterranean, and if you did not know that it should encourage you to visit the second largest island of the Balearic Islands.

Although its main attraction for the visitor is its coves, Menorca offers something for everyone. That is why I present these 6 places that you can not miss in the hours that you will not be lying in the sun, or cooling off by swimming in the sea (activities, on the other hand, to which you can devote all the time you want).

Favàritx lighthouse

Favaritx lighthouse in Menorca, Balearic Islands

To get to the Favàritx Lighthouse you have to go through another of Menorca's surprises, the huge green expanse of the Natural Park of s'Albufera des Grau, which, of course, also includes a good stretch of coastline. The lighthouse was built in 1922 with materials extracted from a quarry in the area and is located in one of the oldest, geologically speaking, areas of the island.

The landscape is stony, arid and visually reminds of the moon (if there were less dust and more rock plates on the moon). Considered the most beautiful lighthouse in Menorca, it is essential to bring the camera, especially if the sea is rough, although, as you can see, a blue sky is not a nuisance.

Practical information
