Mahon City Info

Mahon is the capital town of Menorca and is located on the Western tip of the island. Mahon is a vibrant tourist hotspot, packed full of shops, cafes and bars that offer plenty to do for any visitor. Moreover it is host to some glorious weather, a beautiful harbour and miles of sandy beaches that make it a great place to visit for families and anyone wanting to escape their busy schedules for a week in the sun. If this doesn't appeal though, there is also plenty of tradition and culture to soak up. With the town offering a number of tiny side streets, historical remains and an atmosphere that is completely unique, it is a great place to visit for any demographic.

  • Walking in Mahon:Home to some beautiful places to explore, Mahon offers some fantastic walks to secluded beaches and breathtaking views. Try packing a picnic and taking the scenic hiking route to the secret beach of Cala Escorxada. The beach is completely untouched, it has glowing white sand and a clear blue marina to swim in. Moreover, the walk itself follows the coastline allowing for some great opportunities to capture stunning photographs and explore the Islands coastline.
  • Horse Riding: For those looking for the ultimate break from mundane life, check out the Can Pouny riding school. Horse riding really is a great tradition in Menorca and popular with the locals, therefore they pride themselves on not only their tuition but their tours. Their expeditions are popular for all levels of experience as the terrain is mostly flat, allowing for calm strolls and canters throughout the stunning surroundings.
  • Mount Toro: Mount Toro is the highest point in Menorca and without doubt worth the trip up from Mahon. As well as giving great views across the island, Mount Toro is the spiritual centre of the island and home to a 16th century sanctuary run by Franciscan nuns. As well as this a monument (named 'Jesus of the Sacred Heart") dedicated to the Menorcan's who died during the Moroccan wall (fought in 1925) sits proudly at the summit offering a great insight into the pride of the Menorcan people.
