The VIII MEETING OF THE WORLD NETWORK OF ISLAND AND COASTAL BIOSPHERE RESERVES will take place on May 2018, at the Island’s Council of Menorca (Pça. Biosfera, 5, 07703 Maó, Menorca, Balearic Islands).

How to get here

Menorca is well connected both by air and by sea, especially during the summer months.

The Menorca Airport has direct flights to Barcelona, Madrid, Palma, Valencia and Bilbao throughout the year, and increases its destinations in summer, especially to Spanish cities. The main airlines that operate at the airport are Ryanair, Vueling, Air Europa and Iberia.

The airport is located in Maó, 4.5 km from the city center, and there is a bus line that connects the airport with the center every half hour. The city center is 10 minutes away by car/bus.

From the bus station there are lines to different points of the city and other towns on the island. Routes and schedules are available at

To get to the island by boat, the ports of Maó and Ciutadella are connected with Barcelona, Valencia, Palma and Alcúdia (Mallorca). There is a permanent taxi service at the airport and in the ports.


Menorca has a varied and wide range of accommodation. Maó presents a considerable number of hotel rooms that can satisfy all needs, but it should not be overlooked that a significant forecast and advance notice is necessary in the accommodation reservation to achieve greater availability, and especially more affordable prices.

Upon confirmation of registration, the organisation will arrange the accommodation reservations for those attending the event.
