Minorca is something of a second home for me during the last 30 years. We have Spanish friends with a home close to the Post Office in the town centre and their local knowledge has been invaluable over the years in obtaining the best bargains. Mahon itself boasts the second largest natural harbour in the world( the other is Pearl Harbour in Hawaii) hence the reason you will see huge cruise ships moored by the quay. The town itself has a plaza which hosts an excellent market on Saturdays and around this square are bars and restaurants. Narrow streets wind down to the harbour full of colourful shops and boutiques. This is the place to buy some good quality clothing which has a distinct designer feel. Cigarettes and alcohol are also much cheaper than those in the UK. Visiting the harbour during the day is an interesting and relaxing experience but in the evenings and at nights it really comes alive with numerous bars buzzing with customers. It's a great atmosphere. Also worth a visit is the nearby Es Castells and the little harbour of Cala Fons where you can dine alfresco at lovely little outdoor restaurants. This harbour is lit up at night and is very romantic.
