The most eastern of the Balearic Islands, Menorca is the island of contrasts: the local culture bearing the mark of the continuous sequence of battles and dominions, the natural area declared UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, as well as its holidays and food culture. All this is topped by mild temperatures during the summer months brought in by the tramontana wind, making Menorca a favourite spot for boat sailing in July and August.
If your Menorca yacht charter starts off in Mahón, begin your trip by strolling along the seafront and taking in the views of the harbour changing colours as the day advances into night and the sun begins to set. Our tip: explore the streets and promenades that offer full panoramic views of the harbour. Once at sea, set sail towards Biniparraitx cove to moor and get a dip, then reach Coves anchorage to admire its rocky cliffs.
If you plan your yacht charter from Ciutadella instead, its privileged location provides several sailing route options based on wind direction and sea conditions. Depending on the features of your sailboat, you may be able to explore the southern coast joining Ciutadella to Mahón in one single day.
Sailing to north you can discover the Albufera des Grau Natural Park showcasing a unique landscape and cliffs with interesting archaeological attractions and wildlife. Past Cape Favaritx, moor your yacht and get ready for scuba diving, as the tranquil waters of these small open coves house several sunken wrecks awaiting to be explored.
