The capital of Menorca, Mahon, or Mao as it is otherwise referred, is set on a ridge above a deep inlet that forms the the biggest natural port in the Mediterranean, and undoubtedly one of the biggest in the whole world, second only to Pearl Harbour. Usually abuzz with tourism mainly in the summers, this small yet infinitely charming capital is also lively during the rest of the year. A particularly good time to visit is during the first weekend of September, when the Nuestra Señora de Gràcia (Our Lady of Grace) festival takes over the town. Getting there is easy, with car rentals available from Mahon airport.
