    Holiday apartments in Mahón-Centre are in Menorca’s capital, a gorgeous waterfront city next to a large natural harbour with deep but perfectly clear waters. Many holiday homes in Mahón-Centre are set on hillsides affording far-reaching views out over the water. The style of accommodation is traditional, with wrought-iron balconies and shaded courtyards, but there are also lots of creature comforts on hand like air-conditioning, home entertainment and wi-fi. When it comes to activities and days out, there’s a huge choice for all ages around Mahón-Centre apartments, with water sports, beach trips, golf courses and historical sites all in store. 

    Things to do

    -Beaches: A short way north of Mahón is the S’Albufera Natural Park, which protects coastal scenery, wetland habitats and salt lakes. One part of the park is home to the sumptuous Es Grau beach, which is one of the best for families on the island. The water here remains shallow for a long distance, and the beach is overlooked by pine woodland and sand dunes. 

    -Walks: The S’Albufera Natural Park is also a wonderful setting for a walk, with designated paths offering glimpses of the abundant birdlife as well as perfect views of unspoiled beaches. The trail here is part of the Cami de Cavalls, a 186-kilometre path that follows the entire coastline of Menorca. From Mahón there’s a scenic walk along the harbour to Es Castell, with historic waterfront buildings, rugged hills and unique coastal panoramas to see along the way.

     

    -Local sights: Mahón has the distinction of being the world’s second-deepest natural harbour— it’s also five kilometres in length and up to 900 metres wide. This gives the city an unusual layout and also makes it a hive of activity in the summer, as all kinds of cruises and other launches arrive and depart. An important piece of heritage is the Mola Fortress on the port’s north bank. It dates to the reign of Isabel II in the mid-19th century and is open to the public.

    -Excursions: The north coast of Menorca has coves that extend a long way inland, creating ideal conditions for water sports like diving and kayaking. In the heart of the island is the castle of Santa Àgueda, which was the site of the Moors’ last stand on Menorca in the middle ages. On the west coast, about 40 minutes from Mahón, is Ciutadella, the island’s former capital with a neatly preserved old town of mazy streets and renaissance architecture. 

    -Food and drink: Mahón cheese is loved across Spain and is one of Menorca’s biggest exports. It’s a soft to hard cheese, with a buttery texture and a flavour that is at once sweet and slightly salty. There are dairies open to visitors throughout Menorca, but one of the best is at Alaior a few kilometres outside Mahón. When it comes to cuisine the most representative traditional dish is lobster stew, made with tomatoes, onions and garlic.
