Menorca travel information
The most common way to visit Menorca, is to come by plane.
Moving around – Transportation
Options for getting around the island are limited and visitors can choose either the public bus services or taxis. Both are reasonable options, but many visitors opt to hire a car during their stay and find the convenience and comfort outweighs the difference in cost against the alternatives.
What to Visit (do no miss!)
Club Escola Menorquina: A phenomenal performance that shouldn't be missed! The riders at the show perform on traditional Andalucian horses that are specially trained the Menorcan way. The result is a truly magnificent performance showing the connection between man and beast.
Naveta des Tudons: Menorca has over a thousand prehistoric monuments, this being one of the best known. Naveta des Toudons is the oldest roofed building in Spain and is an ancient burial site ( naveta meaning burial chamber) that yielded over 100 corpses during excavations in the 1950s. Situated on the Mahon-Ciutadella road, 4km from Ciutadella . Admission is free.
Port de Maó: The port in Mahon is one of the most impressive natural harbours in the Mediterranean, stretching 5km inland. The harbour front is lined with restaurants, bars and boutiques.
Trotting Races: A popular sport in the Balearics for over 200 years, trotting races are held at weekends both in Mahon and Ciutadella. The jockey must prevent the horse from breaking into a gallop, hence the name "trotting". Where: Hipodromo de Maó (Mahon). On the road between Mahon and Sant Lluis
Castell de Santa Agueda: Just a few kilometers from Ferreries and just off the main Mahon - Ciutadella road is Castell de Santa Agueda, it's well sign posted now. This ruin of a once roman stronghold is perched on top of the second highest point on Menorca.
M arkets at Mahon every Tuesday and saturday, Ciutadella every Friday and Saturday, Es Castell every Monday and Wednesday, Alaior Thursdays only, Ferreries Tuesdays and Fridays. Most markets finnish around noon so get there early.
You don't come to Menorca for the world's wildest night parties . The night time entertainment here is low key and centred around the hotels, bars and restaurants.
