Diving and Snorkeling Guide
Menorca is popular due to it's short flights times to enjoy warm diving waters, abundant sea life in (visibility upto 30m ) clear waters with the added fascination of many underwater caves to explore.
For snorkellers each of the beach resorts and the easily accessible coastlines offer snorkeling in crystal clear waters. For those looking for more, many of the dive centres organise boat trips out to interesting sites around the island and close to resort bays. The island's waters are very clean and healthy so you will be surprised at what is just a few yards away in the shallow waters.
Menorca combines quick travel times with sunshine diving - only 2 hours from the UK and offers warm summer diving in water of 28C + with visibility of 30 metres and more. Menorca has strong nature conservancy and controlled tourism which has preserved the marine environment. There are few currents and terrific light and attractive undeveloped coastline. A dozen underwater caves situated in the north and south of the island.
The island is small so getting to other dives sites doesn't mean endless travelling hours.
