Things to do in Mahon

While other towns around Menorca’s coastline are perfect for beach holidays, Mahon is made for a different kind of relaxation. You won’t have far to go if you do fancy a lazy day on a sun lounger (about 15-20 minutes by road), but your holiday here will be more about exploring romantic ruins and huge fortresses, soaking up the atmosphere of the local markets and watching the to-and-fro of the beautiful natural harbour.
