Come enjoy Menorca’s magnificent Mediterranean climate on a catamaran charter! Long hot summers and mild winter months make for a pleasant cruise any time of the year.

For those who enjoy watersports, sail to the northern coast and anchor in Fornells. Thanks to its ideal wind conditions, this fishing village offers an array of activities on the sea. Your cruise will not be complete without a stop in Ciutadella. Explore its impressive ancient harbor and take a stroll through the many cobbled stone streets.
