Ferries to Menorca

Menorca is the most low-key of the Balearic Islands, with exquisite beaches and historic towns rather than world famous night clubs.

The island boasts stereotypically beautiful shorelines, ranging from calm seawater pools suitable for children to secluded coves with rocks to dive from.

Although it cannot compete with Ibiza’s nightlife, Menorca’s vibrant bars and restaurants are certainly worth a visit. For example, ‘Cova d’en Xorio’ nestles inside caves high above the sea in Cala en Porter and is the perfect bar for drinking in a gorgeous sunset. A local favourite drink is gin mixed with bitter lemon known as a ‘pomada’.

The cuisine comprises mainly fresh and healthy Mediterranean produce. To fit in with the locals, remember that lunch is usually 2pm and dinner is hardly ever before 9pm. Look out for the delicious local Mahon cheese or sweets known as ‘flaons’.

Menorca’s scenery is fantastic for cycling as the landscape is mainly flat with 216km of stunning coastline. Whilst touring the island, make sure you visit Old Ciutadella in the west. Here you can stroll down cobbled streets and admire the colonial architecture. There’s also a delightful market selling fresh, local fish.

A great time to see Ciutadella is during the energetic ‘Festes de Sant Joan’ in late June. A three day festival which involves men parading sheep, riding well-groomed horses, jousting and firework displays.

If visiting the capital in the east, Mahon, then a trip to nearby Fort Marlborough is a must. Built in the 18th Century by the British, this landmark gives a fascinating insight into Menorca’s colonial past.

Barcelona, Valencia and Mallorca provide ferry routes taking you to Ciutadella and Mahon. Sailing from Alcudia and Palma in Mallorca lasts around 2 hours with frequent services. The port in Barcelona offers high speed ferries to Ciutadella and Mahon, whilst ferries from Valencia take around half a day with 1 sailing a week.

These routes are operated by Balearia, Trasmediterranea and Iscomar, whose fleets comprise large, comfortable and reliable ferries.

Menorca reviews

  • "First Time"

    We normally use a ferry from Barcelona to Palma. Corsica Ferries was cheaper and took us closer to our final destination in Mallorca. Would definitely use this route again. Comparing catering between the two, Corsica Ferries wins hands down!

  • "An Unfair Decision "

    The journey itself was alright. The ferry is fast, and has a nice balcony at the back. Moreover, seats are very comfortable. However, we were at the port exactly one hour before. At some point it was good, because nowhere, not only on the ticket, is written where we should have been waiting. We had to ask at the ticket office, where they told us to go to the quay to Sardinia - which is, I consider, quite unexpected. But that’s not all. We waited there an hour. No ship. So we turned around and a man was directing other cars to a different ferry that went to Elba. Not only that we, the first passengers who successfully found the right quay, were informed at the last moment, and therefore couldn’t fit on the substitute ferry, we also hadn’t been told what was going on. We had to ask four times before someone finally gave us an explanation. At least we had an occupation for the one hour we had to wait for another ferry... Having said all that, bad things happen. However, I would appreciate if the company could inform their passengers properly, the communication is really poor.
