Gin at the Yacht Club, Menorca-Style: Club Nautic, Ciutadella

What’s the deal?

Creek-front bar looking over Ciutadella’s atmospheric harbour.  Relaxed place with a stunning terrace built out over the water, excellent tapas and a lively octogenarian dominoes scene inside (don’t intervene; it can get nasty).  At weekends, entire families set up shop in the cool interior as an interminable stream of friends and neighbours drop in to say hello and munch on a tapa or two while they are there.  The club also hosts a number of sailing courses for adults and young ‘uns (see website for details).

The staff

Very helpful and more than happy to recommend the best beaches on the island (but don’t tell anyone).


Best bits

The 5* terrace at rock-bottom prices.  And the berenjenas.  We still dream about the berenjenas.
