Es Mercadal

Es Mercadal

Es Mercadal, Menorca

Es Mercadal sits squarely at the centre of the island in the shadow of Monte Toro, the island’s highest peak (a lofty 358 metres). Es Mercadal is famed for having a number of excellent restaurants serving authentic Menorcan food and also for the delicious pastries made here. Don’t leave without trying the pastissets (similar to shortbread) or the amargos (almond macaroons).

The central part of the north coast also falls under Es Mercadal’s control. This stretch of coast is rugged and windswept and there are several undeveloped beaches to explore. The north coast is markedly different from the south coast in appearance with dark reddish brown rocks and cliffs, low-lying shrubby vegetation and ochre coloured sand.


NA MACARET

Na Macaret is a charming little village, with a small beach at its centre, across the bay from Addaia. Although Addaia has no beach, its position, built around two narrow inlets, is picturesque. There is a small marina at the end of one inlet and plenty of space for safe anchoring. The sheltered inlets are ideal for exploring by kayak.

FORNELLS Y SES SALINES

This is the ideal location for learning and practicing windsurfing and sailing.It also offers a dive centre, catamaran trips, boat trips, bike and kayak rentals.

SON PARC
