Guide to Menorca

The jewel of the Balearics

Located off the east coast of mainland Spain, Menorca sits alongside her sister isles: Ibiza, Mallorca, and Formentera. The breathtaking island delivers on every level offering spectacular scenery, more beaches than Ibiza and Mallorca combined, pine-packed coves, and a rich history that is ready to be explored during your yacht charter vacation

Favored by nature lovers, water sport enthusiasts, and sun worshipers, the easternmost Balearic island moves to its own mellow beat, promising to be a destination that is truly memorable. In 1933, Menorca was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO meaning that close to half of the island’s surface is protected and has become a natural haven for insects, birds, and beautiful marine life too. Be sure to look out for blue sargatanas lizards which are often seen darting over hot rocks and through the grassy areas spread around the isle. The calming ambiance Menorca emits makes it effortless to explore on your superyacht charter, soak up the sun and breathe in the fresh Balearic air as you cruise to the most wondrous anchorages on the island. 

With 216 km of coastline to explore, the white and golden sandy bays are among the loveliest in the Mediterranean. Following a hearty breakfast on board, enjoy a morning of exploring the isolated coves in the southern region; Cala Macarella, Son Saura, and Cala Pregonda are known for their exceptionally clear, turquoise waters and natural dreamy bays. Access them with ease on your private yacht charter and begin to explore an island of pure secluded bliss. If you're all about adventure, head over to the north of the island where stronger winds create the perfect playground for surfers and water sport enthusiasts. Spend a day at a beautiful open beach where you can try your hand at windsurfing and sailing before sampling some of the superb local seafood at one of the harbor’s finest restaurants.

If you want to explore some of Menorca’s heritage, be sure to check out the maze-like city of Ciutadella, delightfully low-key and distinctive; this town has retained its medieval charm. From striking churches and palaces to narrow romantic streets, the Spanish architecture and culture can be seen and felt wherever you go. Menorca’s capital Mahon is also know for its historical beauty and architecture, home to Mediterranean's largest natural harbor and the world’s second deepest, visitors have been drawn to this area for centuries as it is appreciated for its marvellous view of the coast.

Every June, Menorca celebrates the colourful fiesta of San Joan. Why not observe one of the most iconic, spectacular and participatory festivals in the Balearic Islands in true luxurious style on your superyacht rental. Witness more than one hundred elegant bedecked riders making their way through the streets of Plaça des Born, expectant crowds watch in awe of the horses that rear up on their hind legs as a symbol of power and nobility. The celebrations finish with a fireworks display, a perfect ending to a festival that celebrates culture, music, food and people.
