Minorca tends to bear the brunt of rough conditions. This was the Cala Sa Mesquida last November.


The rough weather currently being experienced in the Balearics has produced the biggest wave recorded in Minorca for fifteen years. At 13.00 yesterday, a wave of 12.5 metres height was measured by a Balearic Ports Authority buoy.

The ports of Ciutadella and Mahon have been closed since Tuesday, but conditions are expected to improve from midday today when an amber alert is due to be reduced.

Winds of up to 80 kilometres have been hitting Majorca as well as Minorca, and while they are expected to ease today and tomorrow, another front is due to bring a storm to the Balearics on Saturday, meaning more high winds and also rain during the weekend. The start of the Easter holiday period this weekend is not, therefore, looking too bright. The good news is that it should be sunny if still breezy tomorrow.
