Menorca, Balearic Islands


Menorca, Balearic Islands

Mahon or 'Mao' is the charming capital of Menorca. It continues to be a favoured destination for holidaymakers year after year and it's not difficult to see why. It's pretty streets are lined with Georgian architecture (evidence of 18th-century British influence) fronted by artisan shops and pavement cafes.

The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and there's plenty to do and see. Start with a boat tour around the harbour in a glass-bottomed boat, taking in the seafront view and the small islands dotted around the harbour itself. Then a walking tour of the city, including the municipal museum and the famous church of Santa Maria. If you're a gin tippler you'll love a trip to Xorigeur Gin Distillery to see how this distinctive local drink is made and of course to sample the goods! For families, there's the brilliant Splash Sur Menorca water park or you could choose the island hiking trail and discover one of the many wonderful beaches nearby.

Transfer time from Mahon Airport approx. 10 mins.
