Menorca is one of few places where it is still possible to enjoy, relax, and discover the static and crystalline light, the atmosphere, the clarity, the radiant luminosity contrasts of the white houses and the reddish lands. Menorca is also the sea: recondite coves, wide sandbanks, abrupt cliffs. The coasts are changeable normally with blue skies in an environment of great freshness and clean atmosphere. Many of the beaches of Menorca are still today in semi wild condition. The waters of Minorca are a magnificent place to sail. The coast of Menorca is also interesting for the amount of aquatic birds that live in the large salt-water lagoons and that live permanently in the cliffs.
