Holidays in
Mahon

A historic holiday hotspot

The British-style Georgian houses found on this island provide a unique backdrop to the relaxed Spanish atmosphere you'll find on your Mahon holidays. The capital of Menorca, the smallest and possibly most laidback of the Balearic Islands, it’s a popular destination for culture lovers and beach fans alike. Cafés spill out onto the city's pavements, and the easygoing spirit makes holidays to Mahon perfect for taking in the sights and sampling the local food and drink.

Eclectic architecture reflects various times of occupation, which in recent centuries included the British and French and, before that, the Romans and Moors. History buffs will love wandering the streets and spotting the blend of influences, from the renaissance façade of the city hall to the Art Nouveau influences seen in many large townhouses. Holidays to Mahon are all about soaking up the cultural flavour, enjoying the relaxed holiday vibes and discovering the beautiful coastline.

Your Mahon questions, answered

Nuestra Señora de Gracia is a lively celebration held in September that fills cups with pomada – a local gin and lemonade mix – and the streets with horses and dancing.

With fantastic seafood and a variety of cheeses, there’s no shortage of local options to try. Wash it all down with some of the island’s local gin.

If you’re stumbling over your Spanish phrases, many people in Mahon, especially in the centre, speak English and will be able to help you out.

Best things to do in Mahon

Visit a museum

Brush up on the island’s history at the Museum of Menorca, which recalls Roman, Moorish, British and French occupations. You can also learn about local crafts and shoemaking traditions.

Browse the market

Adjacent to Iglesia de Nostra Senyora del Carme, the Carmelite cloisters have been converted into a spectacular indoor market that’s stocked with homemade treats and local specialities.

Board a boat

Enjoy views of Mahon’s colonial architecture from the water on a boat tour – it’s the best way to take in the small islands and old fortifications around the port.
