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

Beaches in the South:

Mal Nombre

You can reach this beach by car, in ten minutes from Jandia lighthouse. Just take the coast road heading north, and you’ll find a narrow road on your right, follow the sign “Mal Nombre”.


A dirty road, but you can go on it with almost any car. You can then walk for kilometers in each direction, and enjoy the scenery.
