What route to take?

The island of Menorca boast a fascinating coastiline, full of wonderful spots to discover. The cruise you choose will depend greatly on the days you have planned to spend the summer on the island. Island Yachts Broker & Charter recommend you to make a “round island trip”, following a deeply rooted tradition of the Menorcan residents.

Menorca, sailing from cove to cove. You depart from the Port of Mahón and begin your journey on the sea to discover the extraordinary captivating and contrasting scenery of the island of Menorca, designated as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1993.

On the South, the white sandy beaches and the turquoise blue sea dazzles and transports you far, far away. Macarella, Macarrelleta and Turqueta are all coves which deserve a visit as well as others less well known but equally enchanting ones such as Escorxada or Es Talaier . To the North, your perception of the landscape is changed as it becomes more rugged and the sea an emerald green, with impressive cliffs and dark sandy beaches. We recommend you see the cove of Algaiarens and anchor off Cala Pregonda at dusk for a magical sunset. Returning to Mahón, the views from the sea of the Isla del Rey, Cales Fonts and the island of Lazareto complete this voyage.

During the trip we will stop at highly recommended restaurants to sample the exquisite Mediterranean and traditional cuisine of Menorca: Es Grau, Fornells, Port Ciutadella, Macarella, Cala Galdana, Santo Tomas, Binibeca, Cales Fonts, and the Port of Mahon.

Not to be missed:

Take a guided tour of the Albufera d’es Grau Natural Park, a paradise for migratory birds, fish and reptiles; enjoy a delicious lobster “caldereta” in Fornells; visit a farm; visit the old historical town of Ciutadella; do shopping in the center of Mahon; visit Favaritx, Cavalleria and Monte Toro; sample a typical Menorcan dinner in one of the charming restaurants in Cales Fonts; these are just a few of the possible activities to enjoy on land whilst discovering the island of Menorca.

If the trip coincides with the dates of one of the popular festivities they are also worth experiencing, hundred-year-old traditions which are celebrated throughout the summer in each of the islands towns. The horses are the main protagonists of these festivals; they are ridden through the streets by the riders or caixers dressed in traditional black and white costumes whilst demonstrating their competence to the public.

For those fond of hiking, it is possible to alternate sailing with some walking along the “Camí de Cavalls”, an historical route which dates from the XIV century and borders the coastal perimeter of Menorca, originally part of the island’s ancient cavalry defences.
