Golf Holidays Promoted In Menorca
The tourist board in Spain announced recently what millions of golfers already know - the Balearic Islands are a superb place to golf. Now golf holidays
in Menorca are going to be promoted throughout Europe and the UK.
180,000 euros of the Balearics advertising budget has been set aside to market Balearic Island golf holidays. The move is in response to reports that
indicate over 112,000 tourists visited the Balearic Islands last year specifically to play golf. Golf holidays in the Balearic Islands are on the increase.
This is no surprise to locals, or to the many tourists who have golfed the Balearic Islands in recent years. Even the small island of Menorca stands to
reap financial benefits from the new push for golf holidays. It may only be home to one golf course, but it's well worth the time for golfers to include it in
their travel itineraries.
Menorca's lone course, the Golf Son Parc, is located just off of Son Parc Beach. The beach has long been one of Menorca's favourite tourist
attractions, with its pristine white sand and aqua-marine waters. Players will enjoy warm ocean breezes as they make their rounds of the
championship course's 18 holes.
Golf not withstanding, the island of Menorca is a virtual treasure-trove of ecological gems. Tourism is a staple of Menorca's economy. Overall visitor
numbers have increased dramatically since the 1960s. Despite this, the island has remained relatively unspoiled. It is home to one of the world's most
unique protected wet zones.
The wet zone, located in the northern part of the island, is home to a number of indigenous species of birds and wildlife. It also boasts plant life that
cannot be found anywhere else.
Menorca's golf course lies on the outskirts of this majestic eco-preserve. Players have been known to encounter wildlife from the preserve on the
greens. This includes a famed peacock flock that has taken up residence near the third green.
Visitors who come for a golf holiday should stay long enough to take in Menorca's other
