Photograph of the Day: Hover Boats in Menorca, Spain

 
Menorca (or Minorca) is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Spain. Its name derives from its size, contrasting it with nearby Majorca. According to the Lonely Planet:

Menorca (population 92,000) is the least overrun and most tranquil of the Balearic Islands. In 1993 Unesco declared it a Biosphere Reserve, aiming to preserve environmental areas, such as the Parc Natural S’Albufera d’es Grau wetlands, and the island’s unique archaeological sites. Its 216 km coastline is fretted with relatively untouched beaches, coves and ravines. Inland, criss-crossing its fields and green, rolling hills are an estimated 70,000 km of dry stone walls.

Menorca is the first place in Spain to see the sun rise. If you want to learn more, there’s a great article on the New York Times about the island.

In this lovely photo (with the saturation seemingly set to maximum), we see boats that appear to hover over the incredibly clear, turquoise water. While other photos of the area do not portray the water quite so blue and clear, nobody denies the natural beauty of Menorca.
