The objective of this trip is to know Menorca, the most northern island of the Balearic Islands and according to many people the most charming. It is the ideal destination for adventurers who want to rest combining cultural visits with coves that have little to envy those of the Caribbean, few romantic places where you can get lost in Spain. As a point of interest, UNESCO declared Menorca Reserve of the Biosphere in 1993, due to its environmental variety and its natural values.
We will sail from the base port and spend the night sailing after having installed ourselves in the cabins and communicating the importance of safety at sea and coexistence on board.

The next day we will see the coasts of Menorca and we will go to Ciutadella to make a stop, stock up on what is necessary and walk through its narrow and narrow streets. The city has a small, very particular natural harbor, with an elongated shape, sheltered by the Tramuntana, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and spectacular ports in the whole Mediterranean.

The next morning we will leave the Ciutadella area to head east towards Maó. We will stop to enjoy a bath in Cala Turqueta that offers a turquoise and crystalline water, next to it Cala Macarella and the neighboring Cala Macarelleta also allow us to enjoy these characteristics and find an anchorage area to eat. In the afternoon we will go in search of Cala Escorxada where we will spend the night.

At dawn we will head to Cala d'en Porter passing before Cap de ses Penyes where we will find a cliff with several caves that can only be accessed from the sea. After having eaten anchor in the vicinity of Cala en Porter and we will go to Cales Coves to surprise us with its rugged but cozy landscape. Nearby is the disco Cova d'en Xoroi, famous for its enclave in natural caves, where we can go for a drink if you feel like it.
The next day we will leave behind the south of the island, turning Punta Prima towards the town of Maó, the second largest natural harbor in Europe. The whole canal until arriving at the city is populated by small islets that embellish the arrival to this port of forced visit. Once we have walked through the capital of Menorca, we will head to Cala Mesquida, a place that is not touristically exploited and where the inhabitants of the island gather mostly. From Cala des Grau, very close, begins the Natural Park of l'Albufera des Grau, of great importance from the point of view of fauna. At dusk we will move towards Platja des Tortuga which, being protected from the north winds, is an ideal place to anchor.

After the night we will head to Arenal des Castell, a quite urbanized area where we will make a stop to eat in Cala Pudent. In the afternoon we will head towards Fornells where we will spend the night refugee in the bay.

At dawn we will head to Cala Roja and Platja de Cavalleria, two beaches of reddish sand quite impressive where you can make clay baths. We will line up in Binimel.là to eat and then we will have the chance to snorkel admiring the numerous fauna and diversity of species of all kinds that surround this area. Later, after enjoying a last bath we will set course again to the port of beginning of this crossing.

The itinerary will always depend on the weather and we will be guided by the employer's advice.
