Es Castell : Holiday Accommodation
If spending day after day on a beach isn't for you then Es Castell might be. Spain. Built under the Fort of San Felip, it is a town steeped in history. Originally named Georgetown (after George III) by the British during their second occupation and built in square block military style, it still retains a colonial feel. With a commanding position over the entrance to Mahon's harbour, Es Castell has some interesting places to visit for history buffs including Fort Sant Felip, Fort Marlborough and the military museum in the main square. This is also the first place in Spain to see the sun rise, being the most easterly point on the island.
Es Castell is a bustling town with plenty to see and do, and is flanked by two harbours - Calas Fonts and Cala Corb, where you can enjoy waterfront dining from one of the many restaurants and bars situated here. There are market days twice a week and also an annual fiesta at the end of July.
