Menorca is a special island for many reasons, and one of them is its fauna. We invite you to discover one of the indigenous species of the island, the Menorcan gecko with our Route of the Gecko.

Over time, the Menorcan gecko has disappeared from the main island, surviving only on other small, surrounding islands. Living on each one are subspecies with specific and unique characteristics.

On the Route of the Gecko, you will be able to visit 2 of the small islands where this species resides: the island “Illa de l’Aire”, situated on the southeast coast of Menorca, and the island “Illa d’En Colom”, located on the northeast coast.

The route lasts a minimum of 2 days, so that you can calmly enjoy the Menorcan coast, although it can be adapted depending on your needs. Discover Menorcan fauna in a different way!

The trip starts in the port of Maó. There you will be met by Jordi, the captain of the ship. Once we’re ready, we will sail across the bay, and will head toward our first destination, the island Illa de l’Aire, on the south coast. Living there is the black gecko “podarcis lilfordi lilfordi,” that is characterized by its black torso and metallic blue belly.

During the trip, we will stop in secret nooks and unspoiled coves. There you will be able to swim in crystal-clear waters, snorkel and explore the seafloor, or enjoy using our paddle surfboards.

You can go ashore for a walk to take a stroll, or eat on the beach or at a snack bar, although if you prefer, the boat is equipped with all the essentials so that you can cook your own food. As it grows dark, we will anchor to spend the night, and you will be able to prepare whatever you need to enjoy a great dinner under a starry sky.

The second day of the trip, we will head toward the island Illa d’En Colom, on the North Coast. Living on this island is the gecko subspecies “podarcis lilfordi brauni”, that has an olive-green and blue-toned back, with black stripes. Finally, we will head back to the port of Maó, arriving at our destination as the sun sets.

To comfortably enjoy this route, the maximum capacity is 5 passengers. Our llaut has 1 double bed and a living room with 1 double sofa bed and another single. For the more adventurous, we also offer the possibility that an additional 3 passengers sleep in the spacious exterior cockpit. Come along on this adventure! We’ll be waiting for you!
