Spacious and light, this typical Menorcan townhouse – once the home of naval captain and merchant Joan Roca i Vinent – is the kind of place you want to linger. Ignasi is steeped in the history of the house and the island so do ask.
Soak up the local culture in the 17th-century monastery turned museum and spy the colourful, colonial architecture from a boat tour around the harbour. Foodies will be happy – after a day wandering the cobbled streets of Mahón’s old district head to the waterfront for Arts or the opera and to one of many excellent restaurants. Don’t miss the opportunity to sample the island’s famous Caldereta de Langosta: lobster stew.
Walk the ancient path of Camí de Cavalls or cycle on your rented e-bike. The coastal area and natural park just north of Mahón is stunning with many unspoilt beaches and coves. You can kayak, hike, horse ride and cycle – reward yourself with a glass of the infamous Pomada when you’re done – Menorca’s take on gin and tonic.
