Menorca Communications

The most common way of getting to Menorca is by air, arriving at the airport, which is very close to Maó. Cars can be rented at the airport, or if you want to use public transport, you can take a taxi or the bus to Maó. Once in Maó, there are plenty of connections with other buses which cover different routes on the island. There are many airlines offering frequent regular flights from a number of points, such as airports on the other Illes Balears, mainland Spain and Europe.

Menorca has sea connections with Valencia and Barcelona, by means of boat and fast ferry. You can also get to the island by sea from the other Illes Balears.

By sea, connections with mainland Spain run from the port of Maó to Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Valencia, and from Ciutadella to Alcúdia and Cala Rajada, in the north of Mallorca. Every year, nearly 200,000 people choose to travel to Menorca in this way.

The port of Maó is one of the most spectacular in the Mediterranean. It is over six kilometres long, and in the centre of the port itself there are two islands, Illa del Rei and Illa del Llatzaret (also known as Illa de la Quarentena), boasting buildings steeped in history. Activity in the port is constant due to the regular passenger lines and the coming and going of cargo ships, sports boats and cruise ships.

Arriving in Menorca in the port de Ciutadella is quite a spectacle. First, you go past the Castle of Sant Nicolau, and from the sea you can view the city towering over its defensive walls. A beautiful maritime promenade has been built there, so you can drive or walk beside the sea from the port to Platja Gran.
