Full description

Join a city cruise from the old port of Ciutadella to explore Son Saura, Cala Turqueta, Macarella, and Macarelleta. Visit the island's hidden gems and admire the natural beauty of its coves and beaches, both from the sea and on land. Enjoy time to swim, snorkel, and savor a paella lunch with a drink on board.

Set off on your coastal cruise from Ciutadella to discover the west and south coasts of Menorca. On the first stop at Son Saura, enjoy 2 hours of free time. Relax on the stretch of white sand beach or dip your toes in the calm, shallow waters.

You can also take a 15-minute stroll along a rustic stretch of Camí de Cavalls to reach one of Menorca’s most remote and untouched beaches, Es Talaier. Then, hop back on board to enjoy a Mediterranean paella served with a glass of sangria and orange juice for lunch.

Set sail to the coves of Macarella and Macarelleta and make a 1.5-hour stop at Cala Turqueta. Admire the small beach with blue waters surrounded by pine trees. Jump straight out of the boat into the clear waters. If you bring a snorkel kit, you can explore the white sand seabed and marine wildlife.

Finally, take one last look at Menorca's landscape as you make your way back to Ciutadella.

The boat trip is exactly as described. The staff are so friendly and las calas are so beautiful. My family and I weren’t expecting to have a good paella but it was incredibly delicious, so yummy. The only negative side is also the paella. I would suggest to add a vegetarian option or one with just meat/chicken, as I am allergic to seafood and couldn’t enjoy the paella, so unfortunately I was hungry for the rest of the day.

I booked the excursion online a few weeks before the date and after reading several comments I saw that it was a good option to visit the most crowded coves on the island and it was indeed a positive result, when I got to the boat I saw a lot of people and in addition to occupying seats with your belongings and you must say if they let you sit (at this point I would put a little more control) we are a family of 4 (2 children) and on the way to the coves the children could sit but the adults remain standing... stop at Son Saura spectacular cove and you can enjoy about 2 hours of its magnificent landscape and baths. After this stop, it's time for lunch, a quite good paella prepared by the crew (it can be repeated) and later to Cala Turqueta (TOP!!) spectacular water !!! During the journey we stop to see Cala Mitjana and Mitjaneta (views from the sea). The duration of the excursion is as detailed in the discount from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (ship at 9:30 a.m.)

The excursion was very good, the crew was great and the paella was very, very good. Maybe I miss that you could stop a little longer in Cala Turqueta, although I understand that it is difficult, since we are sailing all the time and time is needed... Also as a suggestion, in the drink of the meal, I would add water, for those who prefer instead of sangria or juice. Highly recommended trip!
