Replenish your energy after your swimming stops with a Menorcan appetizer of cheese, sobrasada (a cured pork sausage) and bread with drinks.
The guide was really lovely so friendly and attentive. The beaches he took us to were incredible, we stopped at 3 beautiful beaches to swim at and visited another 4 along the coast. Overall it was a fantastic experience, only thing I suggest is bring snacks as there wasn’t a lot provided.

This was a wonderful experience. We were fortunate to have an incredible guide in the person of Jacques. It was a real adventure through wild pine woods with stops to spoil our eyes with incredible views and stories about Menorca, past and present. We stopped in remote places, not always known or accessible to tourists. The jeep was great and the wind blowing in the hair in hot, great weather was like the spirit getting free and wild A must do.

I highly recommend a boat trip when in Menorca. This one is great, stopping on beautiful beaches. The atmosphere in the boat is also very pleasant, not too crowded, with a great music playlist, but also not too loud. The crew is very welcoming. The only downside was the paella, which was ok, but not great.

Choose to be picked up at your hotel or meet at the dive center to start your diving experience.

Practice a few exercises to help you feel comfortable with diving. Travel to the marine reserve by boat and begin your diving experience at the marine reserve.

Espectacular!! Una experiencia preciosa. Los instructores súper atentos en todo momentos de nosotros porque era nuestra primera experiencia buceando. Nos explicaron todo con detalle antes Ojala repetir pronto!

What people are saying about Menorca
The description of the activity matched completely with the real excursion, there was enough space for everybody and the possibility to choose from upper and lower deck! We visited beautiful beaches with 2 stops that gave us enough time to enjoy some swim and hiking. The lunch was very well organised and paella was delicious, with the possibility to have more once everybody had it. In general I would highly recommend this activity, I believe that the quality/price is very good :)
Visit the south coast of the island, seeing beaches and enjoying a bath in some of them. Crystalline waters. It is the second time that I do this exit and I already hope to do the next one. Highly recommended
The 3.5 hours are worth it if you just want to switch off, want to see bays that you cannot reach so quickly or want to swim in turquoise water. The guide is also very good in German (: always happy.
Super nice team - Pedro, Andres and Jordi! Great morning kayaking from San Tomás to Cala Galdana. We really enjoyed the challenge of toppling our kayak twice and the strong waves upon arrival.
We have loved the boat tour, we have known several coves and bathed in two of the most beautiful. Fully recommended
