In the month of August, the average temperature is around 30°C. This Balearic Island is milder compared to most European destinations in the winter. Temperatures range from 11°C to 15°C between December and February. When planning your boat rental, be advised that the fall months experience more rainfall than the others. The spring time is a great period for a sailboat charter, as the temperatures are mild, and hours of sunlight are increasing. In addition to the pleasant climate, this island does not experience excessive crowds. Unlike its neighboring islands of Majorca or Ibiza, it is easy to find a secluded area on the beach even during the peak season.
Escape to this tranquil island on a boat rental and appreciate the peacefulness that engulfs Menorca. Throughout the island, sailors will find various trails and routes to enjoy. Cycle or simply stroll across the beautiful countryside. For those who prefer activities on the sea, navigate your sailboat charter to the village of Fornells. Located in the north, Fornells, sits on a bay which experiences stronger winds than other areas of the island. This remarkable bay offers ideal conditions for sailing. Here, sailors will also have the opportunity to paddleboard, kayak, windsurf, and much more.
Make the most of your sailboat charter in Menorca by sailing to a variety of beaches scattered across the coastline. Each stretch of sand exhibits pure natural beauty. Navigate to the north and find your way to the popular beach of Cala Pregonda. Located inside a sheltered bay, this beach offers golden sand and striking blue water. Be advised that there are no facilities on this beach, so come prepared! In this region, you will also find the secluded shores of Cala Pilar. This beach can be quite difficult to gain access to; however, the trip is worth it. The human eye is instantly drawn to the area’s diverse range of colors: crystal clear water, lush green landscapes, and sand that is a unique red tone. A remarkable sight to see!
Once the island’s original capital, Ciutadella, is located on the west coast. This romantic old city is an ideal place for a stopover during your sailboat charter in Menorca. As you wander through the narrow-cobbled stone streets, admire the impressive architecture of each historic building. Placa des Born is the main square, where locals regularly come to gather. Spend the afternoon browsing the many quaint stores and restaurants that surround the square. Visit the majestic cathedral located in the old town. Built in the 13th century, this grand structure remains an important religious center on the island. Although the island is known for being relatively calm, Ciutadella does have an active nightlife and hosts many celebrations. On June 23rd and 24th, the city celebrates Festes de Sant Joan. This lively and colorful event marks the beginning of all the summer festivals throughout the island. Don’t forget to make a stop in one of the city’s open-air markets. Stock up on some local products for your week cruise. Come early in the morning to get the best selection of fish and meat. As you leave the city’s picturesque harbor, navigate to Pont den Gil. This natural sea arch is an interesting sight to see and if your boat rental is small, it may be able to pass through this “bridge.”
Mahon Airport is the only airport on the island and accommodates various international flights. It is located 4.5km from the capital city and 47km away from Ciutadella. Many ferries are offered daily to get you to your sailboat charter in Menorca. These ferries link the island’s ports to neighboring islands and mainland Spain.
