Introducing holidays to Mahon
The Balearic Islands have been a firm favourite with sun-seekers for decades, and one of the most vibrant cities on offer is Mahon, on the island of Menorca. The city is located on the eastern side of the island and is famed for its large natural harbour, one of the largest in the world at over 5 kilometres long and boasting stunningly clear and often calm waters.
With our cheap holidays, you can discover all that the city has to offer. This includes a beautiful historic town centre, which is home to some incredible buildings with different architectural styles, such as the Arch de San Roque, part of an ancient wall that used to surround the city. There is also the church of Santa Maria, housing an impressive organ, which has over 3000 pipes. A little further afield several prehistoric monuments can be found, whose purpose remains mysterious. The entire island of Menorca is a hotspot for stone age monuments and artefacts, making it particularly interesting for those with a passion for history as well as beaches.

Your guide to Mahon holidays
Mahon is a city steeped in history and culture, with plenty to offer besides its marvellous beaches. Sitting proudly overlooking the stunning natural bay, the old town of Mahon offers plenty of charms to explore, such as several different architectural styles including jugendstil, colonial and 18th-century Spanish architecture. Discover what lies hidden in the small and quaint alleyways and enjoy a pleasant stroll down Carrer Isabel II. The Museum of Menorca, also located in the old town is definitely worth a visit.
Es Castell is a delightful, small and traditional town not far out from Mahon. A great mix of shops, bars and cafes is surrounded by stunning scenery and gives visitors a good glimpse of the life of Menorca before the advent of mass tourism. Check out the village of Fornells if you're in the mood for water sports, and excellent restaurants.
The beautiful Calas Coves are a picturesque display of natural beauty, only a short drive out of town. Best visited in the morning or the evening when perfect lighting hits the grand limestone walls to let imaginations run free.
