Luxury Mahon Holidays

Menorca's waterfront capital


Menorca’s capital is a vibrant presence on the island, dominating the east coast with one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Mahon – Mao to the locals – has more than its fair share of history, reflected in its elegant Georgian buildings, piazzas and baroque churches.

Life ripples out from the harbour in Mahon; it's the heart of the resort and brims with Spanish charm. Catamarans and glass-bottom boats mingle with cruise ships and fishing boats, while laid-back bars and restaurants line up behind. It’s a good place to kick off your foray into the city’s nightlife too, which, in typical Spanish fashion, starts late and finishes late.

Make sure you spend some time souvenir hunting at the local shops and markets – they’re packed with Menorcan specialities, from hand-painted ceramics to locally distilled gin.

Ellen Pickover

About 20 minutes' taxi from Mahon is Cove d'en Xoroi, a quirky bar set in a cliffside cave. Go for daytime drinks, sunset cocktails or make a night of it at one of the live music sessions.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Menorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Mahon airport to Mahon is approximately 15 minutes.

When to go

Expect reliable beach weather from April all the way through to September, with average temperatures around 25°C or a shade more in August. Summers in Menorca are dry and the sea is lovely and warm, while spring and autumn months stay in the late teens for pleasant hiking weather.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
