Spain is a country located on the Iberian Peninsula and bordered by Portugal to the west, France to the north-east and the Mediterranean Sea to the South and East.

Europe’s most modern ferries and well-known ferry companies are in operation providing services from Spain to the UK, Italy and North Africa as well as crossing from the mainland to the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands and numerous inter island connections.
Menorca, the unsung hero of the Spanish Balearics, is the second largest island of the archipelago, found just northeast of Mallorca.
Contrasting with the high-intensity, ever popular Ibiza and Mallorca, the easternmost island of Menorca offers total tranquillity with exquisite scenery and more beaches than the other two combined. The pristine appearance of Menorca is, mostly, thanks to its biosphere reserve classification by UNESCO in 1993, so it makes a wonderful island getaway for couples and families.
Aside from the usual fun-in-the-sun frolics like sailing, snorkelling and swimming, Menorca has its fair share of prehistoric monuments and wonderful castles as well. Some of the highlights include La Mola Fortress, a nineteenth century structure set over Mao harbour, and an extraordinary megalithic chamber tomb called Naveta d’es Tudons, just east of Ciutadella de Menorca.
With regular ferry crossings from Mallorca and a couple of cities on mainland Spain, sailing to Menorca is quick and easy. It has ports on its western and eastern coasts, which are served by range of excellent ferry operators.
