Menorca is overlooked by the party crowd that frequents the other Balearic islands, notably Mallorca and Ibiza to the west. A ban on business development in the middle of the last century by Francisco Franco has left Menorca the darling of families and others who seek a tranquil vacation destination. And while she is quieter than her sister islands to the west, Menorca has plenty to offer today”s visitors. Whether it is beaches, natural beauty, or culture you seek on vacation, Menorca will dazzle you with her sights.

Menorca Beaches – Not every shoreline is a beach, but Menorca has been blessed with more than its fair share of sandy spots. A couple of the more popular beaches include Cala Galdana and Santo Tomas where you will find white sand beaches, resorts, and water sports.

If you prefer a more secluded bathing spot, hop in your car hire: Menorca has over 100 beaches and you will find something new around every corner. Families with small children will want to be aware that some exposed beaches like Son Bou/San Jamie and Punta Prima can experience strong currents, and you may find one of the quieter coves to be a safer option for swimming.

I want to tell you about a weekend fossil hunting trip I took a few weeks ago. It was a cold, but sunny Saturday in December. I live about three and one half hours from the beach I was planning on visiting, so I started out rather early, about 4:30am. I was going to Edisto Beach State Park in South Carolina.

This was a trip I had been anticipating for quite some time. Because I live in South Carolina, most of my fossil hunting trips have been limited to the beaches of my state. I had not visited Edisto Beach before this. The majority of my trips have been to the beaches of Myrtle Beach and Hunting Island. I had read that Edisto Beach State Park was an excellent beach to hunt fossils so naturally I was eager to visit.

First, a little history about my fossil hunting. Some twenty years ago or so I was invited to go to the beach with an aunt. During the trip, Aunt Nita introduced me to hunting sharks teeth. Maybe I was a little young, but I did not enjoy this past time. Several years later, I was walking along the beach and happened to look down and see a sharks tooth. I reached to pick it up and suddenly remembered the excitement my Aunt Nita displayed upon finding a sharks tooth. I must have been about 20. That was 23 years ago. Today, I don’t miss an opportunity to go fossil hunting.
