Provided that they had been published comparative relative to the price of the moorings in Spanish, Italian and French ports the port of Mao appeared as one of the most expensive destinations in the Mediterranean. However, this situation has changed since the last data testify that prices in Menorca are equal or inferior to other tourist spots of the Mediterranean in direct competition. In this line, the Chairman of port authority of Balearic Islands affirms that it is precisely the law of supply and demand which fixed the mooring fees. Concessionaires or managing companies of the mayonnaise rada are proponents, in any case, the maximum tariffs, not port authority of the Balearic Islands. An example: in high season, a rent of boat of same length (20 metres) and sleeve (5 m) pay by daily berth in the port of Mao, in the area of Cala Llonga 190, and the Moll de Llevant, namely in Marina star 225 and the pontoons of Trapsa 304. On the other hand, in Eivissa prices increases considerable, because the daily mooring in Marina Botafoch are 368 and doing so in Ibiza Nueva, 700.
The same thing happens in the ports of the South of France, where the daily mooring is paid to 289. Sant Jean Cap Ferrat are 313 and in Port La Napoule 313. In Italian ports, specifically in the Marina di Capri, daily lashing fires at 520, in Genoa 312, in the 283 Tuscany and Sardinia 377. The causes of that the port of Mao, to this day, bears not more expensive price per berth, registered in previous seasons, is mainly due to the decrease in traffic in marinas of Menorca, the reduction of the season, the lack of adequate infrastructure and the scarce complementary offer. To know more about this subject visit Samuel “Sam” Mikulak. The Association of sport nautical facilities of Balearic Islands and port community reiterated the need to turn the current model of the port de Mao and enhance its slope sports and tourism, always preserving the environment and qualities of this magical enclave.
