We visited Mahon earlier this year and promised we would go to La Mola if we ever returned. I'm glad we did, though we should have given ourselves more time. There is so much to see, both above and below ground.
You can get there by road, but we opted for a water taxi from Cala Fonts, just to add to the romance.
Make sure you leave plenty of time to view the Vickers gun, which is one of the last stops on the longer version of the tour. Near there is a refreshments area and toilets. You can also ring for transport to take you back from there to the entrance if walking the whole site has done you in. It might be worth viewing the site in reverse so you see the gun first and then walk down hill to all the other sites.
Don't miss the hidden La Mola exhibition if that still on in the old Queen's Powder Magazine. 'Backstage' photos [by Philip Dunn] of little gems you might have missed as you've wondered around the site. Also visit the section [near the Hornworks - item 7] where a Peoples History is on display. A social history of Europe through 1900s in words and pictures. Surprisingly fascinating.
We missed out on the information video, you can view this before the start or at the end of the visit [if you've got time].
Overall, for a relatively unspoiled site, there are a good number of facilities for both toilets and refreshments.
