Mahon Menorca’s charismatic capital

Flights direct from Cardiff to Mahon

Mahon is Menorca’s capital city and although small, manages to please tourists each year with its culture and history. In the early 1700s, Menorca was occupied by the British and this influence can still be clearly seen in the streets of Mahon. In Mahon, visitors will see traditional Spanish style merged with 18th century British architecture, a unique hybrid that adds charisma to the city.

This destination is also home to the biggest natural port in the Mediterranean, and the harbour is a great hub to see the boats, meet the locals and soak up the atmosphere. Once visitors have discovered Mahon, a short drive further into Menorca will reveal beautiful beaches and glistening waters, meaning Mahon is a great base to enjoy a city and beach break.

Mahon has it all, making it the ideal destination for families and couples seeking a Spanish retreat.

  1. Take a siesta. Menorca is incredibly laid-back so bear in mind that it is popular to take a break between 1pm and 5pm. This means that the majority of shops will close during this time.
  2. Shop in the markets. There are some fabulous markets in Mahon, making it a great destination for shopping. Look out for the outdoor market on the main square in Placa Esplanada, as this has a variety of souvenirs, jewellery and clothes for you to browse.
  3. Go the Museum. If you would like to learn more about Menorca and its heritage, head to Mesu de Menorca, which is just past the main harbour and is held in a former monastery.
  4. Taste the sea. The island has some delicious seafood in many of the restaurants so it is definitely worth venturing away from your hotel to try the local cuisine.
  5. Have a British tipple. This is another reference to the British occupation in the 18th century as Gin is actually distilled in Mahon, making it a popular drink on the island. Have some with your dinner and savour the taste of Menorca!

 

I would on reflection spend more time in Mahon as it is good for shopping too, it has a huge market on Tuesdays during the summer season with lots of leather goods at rock bottom prices and great places to eat and drink!

We did the half day Boat trip around Mahon Harbour, which included a visit to a Gin Distillery and a few hours in Mahon town, which was really nice.

There are many pretty beaches and harbours dotted around the island that would be accessible if you had the advantage of a car at your disposal to get around.
