Sailing can give you a sense of freedom like very few other things in life. If you are not used to this particular feeling, don’t worry. Menorca is the perfect island to organize marvellous boat trips. Here you will find the best boat trips in Menorca.

However, before you start sailing, here are some basic recommendations you should always keep in mind before and whilst you are sailing.


  • Always check the weather forecast and the state of the sea before you set sail.
  • Before entering ports such as Mahon, Fornells or Ciutadella, always communicate before your arrival by radio or telephone.
  • Respect the safety buoy (even more during high season).
  • Make sure to always have enough supplies, water and fuel.
  • Sail with someone who is familiar with the area.
  • Always pay attention to the posidonia meadows when you anchor. This particular species is protected.
  • Always carry with you: mosquito repellent, jelly fish stings and other animal bite creams.
  • Make sure to always wear some solar protection.
  • On a boat it is more than common to get dizzy during the trip. If you decide to take anti-dizziness pills take them half an hour before you set sail.
