Escaping to Menorca

Tuesday 15th March 2016

Exploring afloat

Princess Yachts Menorca will tell you with pride that their Island boasts some of the best cruising in the Mediterranean. Discover what this intriguing island has to offer!  Known as the un-spoilt island of the Balearics, Menorca is a true paradise for yachting, with more beaches than both Mallorca and Ibiza put together. Many of these beaches offer all the facilities you would expect from an established resort, including bars, shops and watersports, but there are many that also remain completely untouched and are only accessible by boat.

Menorca has a large and friendly boating community and offers an abundance of picturesque and safe anchorages as well as excellent marina facilities. Cruising is simple with few hazards along its pretty and contrasting coastline.

Getting there

Menorca is just two hours plane journey from London and with a classic Mediterranean climate of mild winters and over 300 days of sunshine each year there is much to recommend yachting in Menorca whatever the time of year.

Highlights ashore

For life off-board, Menorca has a rich history with numerous archaeological and historical sites open for visitors. Cultural events take place throughout the year including the International Jazz Festival, Jazz Obert, and the popular “Opera Weeks” which take place annually in May and December. Menorca’s famous fiestas also attract visitors from all over Spain and further afield, the largest being the Fiesta of Sant Joan which takes place in Ciutadella.

Locals and tourists mix together to experience the electric atmosphere of the magnificent Menorcan horses taking part in the traditional Jaleo and to enjoy music and perhaps one or a few of the traditional fiesta drink  Pomada”, a heady mix of Menorca’s Xoriguer Gin with lemon.

The recently restored and re-opened Cami de Cavalls (Path of Horses) is another highlight of the island. This ancient path of 186km encircles the island and is a haven for those who love walking, mountain-biking or horse-riding.

Every year, Mahon Harbour hosts the VII Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) which forms part of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge and is the most important regatta of its kind in Spain. There are three days of competition in Mahón and this year the Cup attracted a total of 41 yachts, some of which dated from the beginning of the last century.
