About Menorca Airport

Menorca Airport (or Mahon Airport) is located 4.5 km southwest of Mahon and serves the Balearic island of Minorca, off the coast of Spain. It opened in 1969, when all civilian services were transferred from the neighbouring San Luis Airport, and it now features 16 gates connected by jetway to the main terminal building.

About Menorca

Menorca is the quietest and least developed of the Balearic Islands, a relatively tranquil oasis of pristine beaches and coves with some 216km of coastline and a whopping 70,000km (give or take a few km) of dry stone walls enclosing its lush fields and hills. Designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993, it takes pride in its unique environment, which encompasses the Parc Natural S' Albufera d'es Grau wetlands and many fascinating archaeological sites. Menorca is the second-biggest of the Balearics and its position to the north of the other islands mean it has a wetter and slightly cooler climate than the others. In the off season, this co-called windy island is blasted by northern tramuntana winds.

Beat the Heat in Menorca

Hi! My name is Katherine, born and raised in Kerry, Ireland. I have travelled the world in search of sun, fun, and excitement. Some of my favourite spots include Spain, Italy, and North Africa.


In much of Europe, we worry about rainy days spoiling our holiday. In sunny Menorca, you're likely to have the opposite problem - there are days when it's just too hot and you need a break from the beach. Here are 10 brilliant indoor activities to try:

1. Visiting churches and cathedrals is always a good way to get the measure of a place, and there's something about these huge, fragrant stone spaces that makes them cool and tranquil even on the hottest day. Menorca's Cathedral Ciudadela has been the seat of bishops since the 4th century, and its stone walls are steeped in history and legend.

2. Find out more about Menorca's past with a visit to the municipal museum, Ciutadella des Bastio de sa Font . It will take you through story of the island's, from prehistoric times, via the Paleo-Christian and Muslim periods and up to the present day. And no, there won't be a test afterwards!

3. If a bit of action is more your thing, but it's too warm for beach volleyball or mountain biking, head for Son Bou Bowling. As well as 10-pin bowling, there are snooker tables and arcade games, and a menu of cocktails, beers, soft drinks and snacks. It's fully air-conditioned too.

4. It might not seem an obvious producer of the most quintessentially English of tipples, but Menorca is famous among aficionados for its Xoriguer  gin. You can visit the distillery, sample the distinctively aromatic spirit, and depart both shaken and stirred.

5. The modest Museu Hernández Sanz Hernández Mora  is home to a superb collection of furniture, ceramics, needlework, sculpture, paintings and other works of decorative art, all of Menorcan origin. The collection, acquired by Professor Joan Hernández Mora and bequeathed to the city on his death, dates back to the 18th century.


6. The spacious, pastel-hued Mercat des Claustre del Carme  is a shopaholic's dream. The former church cloisters have been sensitively redeveloped and converted into a market and shopping centre where you can buy anything from fresh fruit to fast fashion.

7. The island's biggest and best museum, the Museu de Menorca, is housed in a 15th-century former Franciscan monastery. Its collection covers Menorca's history, including the Roman and Byzantine eras, and includes paintings, maps and an extensive array of prehistoric artefacts dating back to as early as 4000BC.

8. Many of the world's top shoe designers hail from Spain, and one of them is Jaime Mascaro, the man behind the hugely successful Pretty Ballerinas brand. Mascaro originally hails from Menorca, and the island is home to two of his shops, as well as a factory outlet.

9. After dark, head for Akelarre , an old-style jazz club where you can dance until the small hours. Live acts play early in the evening, and Thursdays are blues jam nights. There's a small but diverse menu of drinks and snacks.

10. The Teatre Principalis one of Spain's oldest opera houses, dating back to the 18th century, and is the hub of Menorca's thriving classical music scene. The Mahon Music Festival takes place during July and August, and attracts performers from all over the world.
