Menorca scuba & snorkel
Menorca is a UNESCO designated Biosphere Reserve surrounded by crystal clear turquoise-blue seas. That’s why Marine life thrives here, and why it’s the perfect place for underwater activities. Travel through the many undersea caves and canyons on a ‘sub aqua safari’ with one of the well-equipped and expertly staffed diving centres. Or simply snorkel among the rocky coves..

• For snorkeling, buy a good quality face mask as it will afford clarity of vision, and there's so much to see under the waves in Menorca. It might also be worth investing in a good anti-jellyfish skin protector. Creams are available at most Farmacias on the island
