A seven days trip to Menorca  (flying with Volotea from Genoa) from 24th to 31st of July 2017.

Rented a car with https://www.hiperrentacar.com/it/, asking for a Fiat Panda or similar, ended up with a huge  Opel Meriva full optional and with just 450km. 220€. Nice car, but way too big to travel the narrow roads of Menorca.

I stayed in a room with bathroom and kitchen rented on AirBnb, in the outskirts of Ciutadella. Cheap (compared to average prices) triple room, 420€ for a week.

Fuerteventura – Faro de El Tostón – El Cotillo

Trip to Fuerteventura – October 2016
Faro de El Tostón

You can reach this beach by car, along a dirty road, in 5 minutes starting from El Cotillo and going North-East.

The water is shallow, it is windy but there are almost no waves. There is a sort of volcanic reef, that made the sea just like a pool. A very big one.
