A circumnavigation of the island offers ideal conditions for sailing giving you the choice of mooring in unspoilt coves or in ports offering charming restaurants, bars and shops. At all times you have the added comfort that MCS support staff are less than an hour away if you should have any problems during your cruise.

We can help you make the most of your holiday by helping you to plan your itinerary on arrival. If you have not sailed around Menorca before why not take advantage of our local knowledge of the harbours, anchorages, weather, shops and restaurants. We also provide a copy of the Islas Baleares Pilot Guide by Graham Hutt.

Menorca is ideal for Charter for so many reasons. Firstly, you will climb on board your yacht on its home berth in the breathtakingly beautiful Mahón Harbour. Being 3.5 miles in length, sailing in the harbour is always guaranteed and it is the perfect place to get used to your yacht.

The island has sheltered morning, lunch time and evening anchorages all the way round, making it ideal for families. With more than 40 unspoilt coves with clear, turquoise water and silver sand beaches, a circumnavigation of the island is a delight. Get away from the crowds and anchor in a sheltered cove or visit the harbours of Ciutadella or Fornells if you are looking for quayside restaurants, unique shops and a rich sense of history.
