Why you should go
It doesn’t matter if you’re going with a group of friends, your family or your significant other – Menorca is the type of island that caters to everyone. From stunning beaches to a wild nightlife and sightseeing spots to quiet coves, there is plenty for everyone to see and do during your stay. Shoppers will be thrilled to discover the numerous designer label stores adorning the ornate streets; not to mention the myriad of quaint cafés and restaurants where you can soak up the sun whilst enjoying a glass of sangria.
If you want to throw on your swimwear, go for a dip and lounge around soaking up the sun, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches in Menorca. The Bay of Fornells on the northern coast boasts some of the most stunning scenery the island has to offer, and Mesquida – an unspoilt cove surrounded by beautiful white sand and crystal blue ocean – will surely satisfy. If watersports are your thing, take a trip to Es Grau, and relax in one of the beach bars when you’ve had your fill of thrills!
Mahon is also ideal for culture vultures – for the history lovers amongst us, a trip back in time by visiting the colonial buildings of Mahon is a fantastic day out. The city still contains echoes of its British rule, which is especially apparent when you walk along Carrier Isabell II and see the balconied townhouses and beautiful sash windows. We also recommend visiting the Gothic cathedral, stopping to take in an organ recital blasting out of 3,000 pipes!
When you should go
Although Menorca is beautiful year-round, many restaurants and bars are closed between November and January. To see Mahon at its best, visit any time between March and October; the weather during the summertime is particularly popular, with temperatures reaching 30°C.
Where you should stay
Mahon is home to countless stunning hotels and B&Bs, designed to suit all styles and budgets. Whether you are looking for somewhere luxurious and romantic, or somewhere spacious and practical, Mahon has a wide variety of accommodation available. A few of our favourite hotels include Casa Ládico Hotel Boutique, Torralbenc and Hotel Artiem Carlos III.
