A BRAND CREATED BY AND FOR US ALL
The island as we know it today has been made possible possible thanks to the efforts of producers, business owners and artisans whose everyday work shows commitment to the island’s present and future, inspired by a kind of generational inheritance that is based on respect, passion and perseverance.
“Our goal is to create a sustainable management model for the farm that can be extrapolated to other sites in Menorca and around the globe. To do so, we apply specific methods, we quantify them, and finally, we explain them.”
FRANCESC FONT, Finca Algaiarens farm
“As a tour guide, I consider myself an artisan of guided experiences. I adore creating custom-made proposals with my clients’ tastes and interests in mind, organising visits that bring them closer to the various realities of this precious jewel that is the Menorca Biosphere Reserve.”
ISABEL MARTÍN SINTES, Tourist Guide
“Often times, sustainable practices merely require returning to the simplicity of things. Despite its complexities, this sport calls for nothing more than a board and a paddle; enough to fully enjoy the island without any negative impact.”
LLUIS GOMILA, Paddle Tour Menorca
“Menorca continually moves us to find new ideas to help care for our island. I feel a deep commitment to protecting a place that has made me feel at home from day one.”
GLORIA VANNI, Casa Bonita Menorca
