Maó

Maó

Maó, MenorcaThe island’s capital was moved to Maó (Mahón in Spanish) in 1721 in order to better control the harbour and thus defend the island.
Today, a stroll through this attractive city gives one a glimpse of the different phases in the island’s turbulent history, the many architectural styles reflecting the frequent changes of rule. The municipal district of Maó stretches from the east of Addaia to the port of Maó along the north coast and from Cales Coves to Binidalí along the south coast.
The only real resort within its jurisdiction is Es Canutells in the south although many visitors also find their way to the quaint fishing villages of Sa Mesquida and Es Grau along the north coast. The inland towns of Sant Climent and Llumeçanes also fall within its jurisdiction.


ES CANUTELLS
A quiet, peaceful resort, located some way away from other towns or developments, it is mainly composed of villas plus one large hotel, perched on the side of the narrow inlet. A snack bar overlooks the small beach and steps lead from there onto the beach. A picnic and bbq area is set up under the trees behind the snack bar.

SA MESQUIDA
Just north of  Maó, Sa Mesquida, is a small coastal village with a very Menorcan atmosphere. Popular with locals, some of whom have summer cottages here, Mesquida seems to have largely escaped modern development. Beyond the village is a pleasant, wide beach although parking is some way away and easterly winds can create big swells.

SANT CLIMENT
A busy town by the airport, it divides Cala’n Porter and Maó, the home of the Casino a famous jazz hangout
and restaurant. It also has an English sweet shop and a supermarket with lots of English products. It has quite a few bars and restaurants and its fiesta is very popular with the locals.
