The pristine waters of Menorca are a real holiday memory. They are amazingly clear so even with just a simple snorkel you will see lots, not murky haze. And because the water is in such good condition you'll see lots of fish too. Many, many of the resort beaches have shallow sandy bottoms fringed with rocks, ideal for young snorkellers. Organised trips can make a great family day out with as a Snorkel Safari or stop off as part of a Boat excusrions. There are also marine reserves around Menorca where the marine life is even more abundent.
The bay is excellent for snorkelling as the water is calmed by the inlet and of course rocks are where the fish are! Equipment Hire and excursions can be found behind beach at Son Xoriguer or dive centre. Fun underwater aqua scooters are also available to hire

Destination Ideas and route suggestions ( difficulty and terrain )
A taste of former elegant times with fine old spanish palaces, moorish influences, a wonderful old centre and a charming little harbour. Ciutadella was the original capital of the island lying at the western edge of the island looking out to its bigger neighbour Mallorca. A superb contrast to the beach and holiday resort. Great atmosphere and shopping and a place to wander the pedestrianised old city and its many narrow streets with hidden shops and Cafe treats. Also competes with Mahon for the title of the best music bars and venues on the island. The scene for the spectacular Sant Joan festival in June, when stunning native black horses parade through the streets and the brave try to "touch the horses' heart" as it rears in front of them.
A former stone quarry used for art, summer concerts and festivals. Extensive site with Medieval gardens to wander. Source of the stone for many of Ciutadella's palaces and grand buildings.
