Verbena de San Juan in Menorca 2020
Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, Tiana
San Juan is the most Mediterranean festival of all. We like to feel intensely that summer is already here and we can't think of a better way to enjoy it than aboard a sailboat departing from Barcelona to get to Ciutadella where we expect party, tradition, and some horses that provoke the delirium of the visitors
Without a doubt, living the Verbena de San Juan in Menorca this 2020, and also doing it on a sailboat, is one of the best ways to give entrance to the summer solstice.
We count on you for this adventure?
We love the month of June, especially since it means summer is coming, and with it the good weather and navigation. And without a doubt, the Verbena San Juan marks the beginning of this fabulous season for all sailors. This 2020, we return to Menorca as every year for these traditional and exciting parties.
For many years it is an unavoidable appointment for all of us who love to sail. Menorca is always a successful destination for June, with good weather and with its traditional festivals, it is the ideal time to visit it.

We expect games with horses (it's fuss), the traditional drink of the island, the Ginet, and lots of fun. We will live the Verbena de San Juan in Menorca as we have never done anywhere else. We will spend the magical night in one of the coves near Ciutadella such as Cala Bruto, Cala Blanes, or Cala Degollador.
At dawn we will head to Barcelona to enjoy sailing on a journey of 110 nautical miles. We will enjoy a sunrise on the high seas.
