The best way to see the Spanish island of Menorca and particularly Mahon is by foot, and as you wander through the city’s labyrinth of streets, you will discover stunning architecture, beautiful churches as well as finding plenty of things to in Mahon from visiting museums, shopping in its boutiques and strolling round its many markets. Mahon’s indoor market has an interesting array of shops and stalls, and during the summer musical performances are held. Next to this is the Mercat de Peix (fish market), sells a wonderful selection of fresh fish and local products, including wonderful cheese and plump olives.

The park of Es Freginal also has fabulous cultural events, including 'Jazz in Maó,' which takes place every summer, meaning Mahon holidays are full of creative and entertaining things to see and do.
If you follow the winding staircase and road of Ses Voltes, you will arrive at the finest natural harbour in the Mediterranean, if not the world. The port stretches for 5 km and is the second-deepest natural port in the world. The esplanade along the waterfront invites you to stroll along and discover where an endless variety of quality boutiques, galleries, shops, bars, and restaurants are located, making it a perfect location for your Menorca rental accommodation. Because Mahon is still a working port, it has a wonderful atmosphere with a unique character with a constantly changing scene of local fishing boats, which you can admire from the comfort of your private villa terrace or during an exciting Mahon boat trip. Whether day or night, you’ll never be without something to do in Mahon.
If you are a nature lover, Cala Arenal, the beach located at one end of the harbour, is perfect for a relaxing day in the sun on this beautiful Spanish island. Close by the traditional port of Cales Fonts in Es Castell has a scenic waterfront walkway with authentic fishing huts transformed into wonderful boutiques, bars and restaurants and summer market stalls with beautiful handmade goods.
Mahon is also ideally located to explore the rest of the island. It only takes around 40 minutes or so to drive from one end of this small Spanish island to the other, making car hire a fantastic idea, although its best to pre-book a car with us at the time of booking your villa due to limitations placed on the number of cars allowed on the island.
