5 reasons to cruise Menorca this 2017 season

Here’s our top 5 reasons to cruise Menorca this 2017 summer season, with the help of our official dealer in Menorca.

The Stunning Coastline

Characterised by white sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters and nestled amongst pretty pine trees, Menorca’s calas offer some of the most beautiful anchorages anywhere in Spain. With many calas both free of building development and only accessible by boat, it is easy to find a safe and tranquil spot to drop anchor and spend the day, or overnight on-board, even in the height of summer.
Some of our favourite spots include Isla de Colom, Cala Mitjana, Cala de Algaiarens, Cala Macarella and Cala Trebalúger

The Cami de Cavalls

Literally meaning “Path of Horses”, the Cami de Cavalls is an ancient path of 186km that encircles the island. Since its full restoration in 2011 the path attracts many avid walkers and is a great way to discover the stunning and diverse scenery of Menorca’s coastline. Its route has been divided into 20 different stages, from 5-14km, which range in difficulty from an easy stroll to a more challenging hike. An ideal way to spend a day on terra firma.

Menorca’s Fiestas

Menorca loves a celebration and in summer, there is a traditional horse fiesta almost every week as each of the towns of the island celebrate their own patron saint. The Menorcan horse is central to all of the summer fiestas and a cavalcade of riders (known locally as “Caixers”), parade through the town on black stallions and then perform the thrilling “Jaleo”, where each horse rises up on its rear legs to loud and lively music. The Jaleo is not seen anywhere else in the world and provides a heady experience of local culture that should not be missed by any visitor to the island. The first of the fiestas takes place at the end of June in the old capital of Cuitadella and continue throughout the summer until early September. The season of fiestas culminates in Mahon and is concluded by an impressive firework display over the Port.

Fabulous Food and Restaurants

Caldereta de Langosta (or lobster stew) is the dish to try when visiting Menorca. Fornells, a pretty village in the north of the island, is famous for its calderetas and the restaurants here offer some of the best in Menorca. As a sheltered port providing visitor berths, buoys, fuel and provisioning, Fornells is also a great cruising stop-off point.

For good dining, visitors are spoilt for choice with some excellent restaurants offering contemporary, first-class cuisine.

For a special occasion, one of our top picks would be the restaurant at Torralbenc. Torralbenc is a traditional Menorcan farm that has been renovated into luxury accommodation. The restaurant is open to guests every evening during the summer and the best tables can be found on the terrace overlooking the Torralbenc vineyards. The restaurant offers modern Mediterranean cuisine, using only local and seasonal products, and the restaurant prides itself on its flawless service ( Another favourite amongst boat owners who know the island well is Pan y Vino. A charming rural restaurant run by a husband and wife team who are utterly passionate about food. The menu is a mix of contemporary French cuisine combined with Mediterranean and Asian influences inspired by the couple’s travels. The couple like nothing more than to surprise, and one of the joys for their many loyal clients is the ever-changing range of new dishes on offer.
