Mahon : Holiday Accommodation
On Menorca's east coast, the island's capital of Mahon is a charming clifftop town perched above a magnificent harbour and famed for inventing mayonnaise! Steeped in history - Nelson's fleet once moored here - its picturesque winding streets, whitewashed houses, interesting churches and attractive squares are ideal for gentle pottering. Make time to see its lovely Santa Maria church, museum and old gin distillery before relaxing at its bustling harbourfront, which is flanked with cafes, restaurants and bars that come alive at night. Shopping is delightful too, with many traditional markets and gift shops to browse.
When you want to venture out, there's a great choice of local beaches and just outside town, atmospheric Stone Age ruins, peaceful countryside and golf courses too. And don't miss Es Castells nearby, with its beautiful, cafe-lined harbour and 16th century fort.
