We are a small established company offering a personal, friendly yet highly professional service. Only two and a half hours from the UK and ten minutes from Mahón airport, you can be onboard and ready to sail with minimum hassle.
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.
The yachts managed for Charter by Menorca Cruising are all privately owned. This ensures that they are looked after with great care and kept in excellent condition. Each yacht has its own individual touches in addition to the standard pack of extras offered with your charter.
All our yachts come with free moorings in their home port for the duration of your stay. Marina Mahón is in a prime location in the Port of Mahón, close to many great restuarants and bars and within easy reach of the town centre and airport.

Charter with Tuition » - The best of both worlds!
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.

Changeover Day: Saturday or Wednesday, Friday or Sunday starts are possible please ask for details.

A circumnavigation of the island of Menorca offers ideal conditions for sailing giving you the choice of anchoring in unspoilt coves or mooring 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.
These are 80 beautiful coves (calas) for you to explore around the coast of Menorca, our guide suggests a few of our favourites. The Imray Islas Baleares Pilot Guide gives details of over 80 calas for you to explore.
Would you like to sail on your own private yacht?
Menorca is the perfect island for sailing, so make it a holiday to remember. Our professional Skipper will take you on a cruise from Mahón or Ciutadella. Explore the pine fringed coastline and drop anchor in a beautiful cove for lunch. You can have fun on deck learning new sailing skills or simply relax in the sun.
We have sailing yachts available to suit all budgets from a Sun Odyssey 35 up to our luxurious brand new Beneteau Sense 57.
Menorca offers the perfect location, with crystal clear waters and secluded anchorages and beaches to explore during your charter. Our professional crews offer a discreet service and will ensure you have a very special honeymoon.
During your holiday in Menorca you can indulge in wide array of activities including snorkelling, paddle boarding, walking, beach combing, scuba diving, or simply relax and enjoy life onboard.
One of the Balaeric Islands, Menorca enjoys around 300 days of glorious sunshine every year and it is rarely short of wind. During the summer days these winds average 3-4, providing a pleasant cooling breeze. They often fade away in the early evening to give you a peaceful night at anchor. Temperatures range from the low 20's in spring and autumn to above 30 degrees in July and August.

John & Liz,
Just a quick note to say thank you for looking after us this year. We have had a fantastic summer sailing earlier in the year on Frangipani and Sa Barca and it was topped off with a brilliant week on Papaya in September. Having trouble free sailing on your well prepared yachts has made it all the more relaxing and enjoyable for us and we are already looking forward to seeing you again next year.
Thanks Again, Simon and Liz
"We have just returned from our third charter holiday with Menorca Cruising. There's a reason why we return - apart from the fact that the island is unbeatable, Menorca Cruising is simply excellent. For the record this year we were on the Beneteau.
As a sailing destination Menorca is great. If you are looking for a gentle family holiday, make sure to check out the prevailing winds at the time - either the north or the south coast will give you sheltered waters, and you are spoiled for choice of anchorages with beaches. If you are fortunate the winds will be fine for a trip right round the island during the week. (More enthusiastic sailors could do this in a day, but then you would miss out on so much....).
Our last trip was at the end of August, peak time, but at times we still still found ourselves on our own in idyllic coves. The beaches are just perfect, and very well kept.
John, Liz and all at Menorca Cruising are great hosts, seemingly in permanent good humour! The yachts are kept in great condition; it is one thing to keep a yacht up to coding standard but these yachts have more than that - a lot of attention is paid to the detail in the maintenance. Also, the domestic side is well taken care of - the galley supplies and linen were all excellent.
In summary, it was a great holiday, made all the better by Menorca Cruising. We'll be back." Nick Moody and family
"We fell in love with the island and can't wait to return to explore more calas next year. The sea was beautifully warm and our children are still talking about the dolphins which followed us into the harbour".
