Alaior’s terrain and the flora and fauna within it are distinguished by magnificent ravines and wetlands. With the majority of the geology in the southern section of Menorca made up of white limestone, the tapestry of extinct streams and descents dipping down from north to south of the island make Alaior and its surroundings one of the most attractive places to enjoy nature. The island being declared a Bisophere Reserve in 1993 has conserved these stunning areas as natural and non-residential.
