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. Mahon is a brilliant place to go if you’re into culture, food and the kinds of views that wouldn’t look out of place on a postcard.
Mahon has more to see than you might expect of a small island capital, and a walk around the historic centre is the best way to take it all in. When you’re following the little old streets between leafy squares, take a look at the buildings around youFind out more
There’s a huge 19th-century fortress at the mouth of Mahon’s vast harbour and it’s one of the top things to see in Mahon according to TripAdvisor members. Fortalesa De La Mola (also called Fortalesa Isabel II) is a great place to go if you like exploring as it’s very well preserved.Find out more
