The Windfornells sailing and windsurf centre is better than ever. Ramon and his excellent team couldn't be more friendly or helpful and speak wonderfully good English. The centre provides a good range of up to date equipment (including wetsuits, helmets etc), plus showers, toilet and changing facilities, and now offers flexible windsurf hire packages, with or without tuition, along with safety cover. We had 3 great half days of windsurfing with useful tips from instructors Gwilem and Kim on the water, plus encouragement and laughs from receptionist Belen back on land. Other visitors of all ages were out in dinghies or having fun on paddle boards.
We love Fornells Bay - what a fabulous place to sail (not to mention to celebrate your 80th birthday). See you next year!

“Another great time at Windfornells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This was our third visit to Fornells and sailing at Windfornells. We had a mixture of sailing in two man dinghies and Lasers with excellent tuition from Ramon and Kim. They were able to adapt their tuition to account for our different requirements. The bay is a perfect place to learn to sail and Fornells is delightful. We have booked to return again next year.

“Beautiful sailing area, great equipment, wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Our 7 year old kids loved the pirates club and safely learned the basics of sailing. Dad had a wonderful few hours on a Laser. Fornells is a fantastic sailing area and i was able to explore it all under the watchful eye of the rescue boat. A Laser 2000 was then hired to show mum around whilst grandma watched in comfort. Excellent facilities and equipment with wonderfully friendly and competent staff. They even sent photos for us. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful center, great family...and of course, Fornells Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I could have stayed at Wind Fornells all day. I didn't windsurf the day I visited but met Ramon (the owner) and his son. They couldn't be nicer and real watermen who truly know what they're sport.

The center itself is clean and inviting and Fornells bay...well what's to say? It's breath-taking. Nice part? After a day of watersurfing, there are great places to eat amazing seafood nearby. Ramon will give you suggestions.

To me, visiting Menorca is about getting to know the nature of this amazing island. This is a great chance to have a truly Menorcan experience on one of the prettiest bays in the world, imo.
