Cala Figuera, new destination for the megayachts

The area of Cala Figuera is about to turn into the luxury nautical destination of Menorca and Port of Mahon, where it is located. As announced last April, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands continues with the plans to create a new marina in the area that once belonged to the company CLH, with 150 moorings for luxury megayachts, a shopping complex, parking and other services required by this type of clientele.

The State Ports acquired the grounds located in the north of Port of Mahon with the idea of a megayacht marina, a plan that not only exists on paper but seems to be gaining force. The president of the Balearic Port Authority, Alberto Pons, declared that in a time frame of maximum three months, a public tender for a project to construct a marina capable of converting the Port of Mahon into a reference in luxury nautical tourism, will be announced.

Although the details of the future town planning of the area are not known, it seems like the agreement  with the Club Marítimo of Mahon (CMM) will not be affected. According to the agreement CMM can manage around 66 berths in the same bay.

The new marina is planned to have a capacity for 150 vessels, in parallel with the type of services required by the superyacht client.
