Menorca is the easternmost

of the Balearic Islands,

and also the most distinctive.

Declared a Biosphere Reserve

by UNESCO in 1993,

this small Mediterranean island

of barely 702 square kilometres,

216 kilometres of coastline

and fewer than 100,000 inhabitants

is unquestionably

one of the Mediterranean islands

still suffused with a sense of balance,

providing a respite from the everyday bustle
