About Menorca Blava
No matter whether you are a resident or a tourist, trips along the south coast of Menorca, as well as its views, are wonderful. The route starts from Ciutadella’s harbour at 10:00 a.m. We are going to sail around the west and south coast until we arrive at Son Saura’s beach. Where you will enjoy from a virgin beach with fine sand and crystal clear water. From here, it is possible to walk through "Cami de Cavalls” till "Es Talaier", a small beach beauty without equal. Meanwhile, lunch will be prepared: paella and sangria will be ready at 13h. In the meantime, we’re going to cook a “paella” and some drinks as “sangria” (spanish popular drink, a sort of punch: lemonade, orangeade, red wine and liqueurs) and orangeade. We’re going to have lunch about 13:00 p.m. Immediately afterwards, we’re going to visit Es Talaier, Macarella and Macarelleta beaches, some caves andunknown places. In the afternoon, we’re going to stop in Cala Turqueta beach. There is nothing to equal it! Right there, you’ll be able to take a bath on the beach or from the boat. And an hour and a half later, we will take our way up again towards the nicest places. Arrival at the port of Ciutadella is scheduled at 5pm. And we are confident this will be the best memory of your vacations

Vegetarian food was a disgrace. Cold, tasteless pasta with a bit of sweetcorn nd carrot. I expected paella for both vegetarians and non vegetarians! Also a water should be offered instead of fizzy drink or sangria! Stop overs were beautiful but I guess every company who provides excursions stops there. Staff should be more friendly and smiley. The boat is large (looks like hold 200+ people). Seats therefore are not the most comfortable ad they seeme squashed. Next time I'd go on catamaran.

The boat was decent and they took us around what was promised. Both the beaches were we stopped were beautiful and had enough time to dip into the beautiful sea. It departed on time and we reached back also in good time. We booked online but called the company one day earlier to ask them about vegetarian options for the included meal, and we were informed that we will get Vegetarian pasta. The Vegetarian Pasta was not very tasty and the portion was really really small + there was no second serving, unlike the Paella. So if you are a vegetarian please pack some eatables as its a long time on board.

Day trip 10 AM-5 PM Starting and ending at Ciutadella port. 10:00 h- set sail along the southern coast of Menorca. Bar open icecream 2.50 coffee 1-1.50 gin/lemon slushy 2 euros 11:00 h- stop for a swim in Son Saura bay. 13:00 h -Lunchtime paella, sangria, orange drink (inclusive) 14:00 h- coves of Macarella and Macarelleta. 14:45 h- stop for a swim in Cala en Turqueta. 15:40 h- back to the port of Ciutadella. 17:00 h- Arrival at the port. A recording was played to explain the various sites in various languages. I heard Spanish, Italian, English and German. mostly technical information. The Menorcan coast line is beautiful, but a bit too much of the same to my taste. It became tedious fast. Most of the time loud music was played that had to drown out the sound of the motor but didn't. The crew were busy among themselves and not all that interested in the passengers. Son Saura was accessible through a muddy sand path and Turqueta Cove was reachable through a set of narrow stairs carved out of natural stone. No activities were offered, one had to entertain oneself. There was a brisk wind at Turqueta Cove but the crew refused to close the windows. Passengers were cold and tired. Only after reaching Cap dÁrtrutx the wind came from a different direction and the temperature on the boat became more agreeable.

The trib was booked through Jet2. It was a pleasent day visiting the south coast of Menorca and stopping at two amazing beaches Son Saura (where the water is so clear you can see the bottom) and Calla Turqueta( where you can find a luttle friendly goat who will steal your fruit given the chance). Staff on the boat were pleasant.The reason I only rate the trip 3* is because the boat was quite crowded and there was no alternative for the paella which is not great if you don’t eat seafood. Tip- pack some good shoes if taking the trip as the way from the boat to the actual beaches is quite rocky.

We have taken many trips, mainly catamarans. We booked this as wanted a day away from the hotel. What a mistake. Our hearts sank when we saw the boat "Jumbo" which was already full of people. The boat could hold 240 people (sign on the wall). On this occasion I don't know how many as when we asked a member of the crew he said he didn't know. An accident waiting to happen as there were no safety announcements. I cannot say how many were on board but there were little free seats, which by the way, were very uncomfortable for the 5 hours you'll be sitting on them. It was a full day trip which took us to 2 bays; both were a long walk from the boat over very rough rocks. My flip flops were totally inadequate. When the time came for people to jump off the back of the boat there was no safety supervision. We were moored close to the rocks. No flotation equipment was provided. On going back to the boat for the allocated time, 1pm, we were early along with lots of others. We had to wait under the little shade that there was until 1pm. Unknowingly to us, we could not board until the paella was finished. We all queued to board the boat and collect our plate of food and 1 complimentary drink. I felt sorry for those waiting behind us as they were in the sun for a very long time. If you take this trip my advice is: 1. Don't 2. Take suitable footwear 3. Take an umbrella for the beach stops 4. Take plenty of refreshment and snacks as drinks on board are very expensive Tui should not be selling this trip as its very expensive and not value for money and is poentially dangerous.
