Star gazing in Menorca

Menorca is not just well known for its relaxed lifestyle, glorious beaches, secluded coves and fantastic seafood. Menorca has so much more to offer and experience. Here is a article kindly produced by our property partner in Menorca.

Menorcan Skies

Menorca has long enjoyed its starry skies.  In 2014 the Balearic Group of Ornithology and Defense of the Nature of Menorca (GOB) proposed to turn the Island into a Starlight Tourist Destination so that people could look at the night sky without any light pollution.

An environmental but also tourist request which the Insular Council managed to achieve in 2019 and Menorca was credited as a Starlight Reserve.  With this approval the island has become the first destination in the Mediterranean to obtain the double accreditation of both a Reserve and a Starlight destination.  It is also one of the thirteen regions of the world to have obtained a Reserve certificate and is one of the twenty eight destinations of the world to enjoy excellent star gazing.
