The 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 take you to spectacular places by boat for something extra special.
