Menorca, the island of peace, birds and flowers. ·Three times smaller than Mallorca, Menorca has been able to preserve the natural splendor of most of its coast. In April and beginning of May the island is covered with wild flowers, thousands of songbirds are excited that spring has finally arrived and seem to greet the lucky rambler. Paradise does exist! . The "cami de cavalls", an ancient horse trail that has been restored and rebuilt as a hiking route, covers most of the coast and is the best way to discover the pristine beaches, sheer cliffs, rich birdlife and wild flowers.
