The largest natural port in the Mediterranean. The port of Maó It is a natural mouth located in the easternmost part of Menorca. 

Historically it has been key to the dominance of the island, hence why it has been a that is full of historic buildings.

It is more than five kilometers long, it penetrates like a tongue of water from the easternmost end of the island to the very gates of the city of Maó.< /p>

It offers an unparalleled shelter for boaters. In Maó the successive step has left its mark  of Phoenicians, Greeks, Rhodians, Phocians and Carthaginians. And in more recent historical times, English and French, who dominated Menorca in different periods.

It is worth noting the old castle of San Felipe, built in the mid-16th century, whose underground galleries you can  visit on an exciting night tour; and the town of Es Castell, where the Military Museum is located on S’Esplanada, the square that contains 

the most significant buildings in the town.

On the northern side stands the fortress of La Mola, one of the largest fortresses built in the 19th century during the reign of Isabel II. 

The port of Maó; it is also home to small islands that make it even more attractive. The largest is the island of the Lazaretto, so called. because it housed a hospital between the beginning of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. Now, during the summer months there are two-hour guided tours of the island. 

Going into the port we find the Illa del Rei, named like this. in honor of Alfons III.

The shores of the port are dotted with coves such as Cala Llonga, Cala Rata, Cala Figuera, Cales Fonts or Cala Pedrera.

These are the 10 coves that will seduce you

1.-Cala Tortuga It receives this name because of the turtles that are in the Morella lagoon that is behind the beach. It is of clear sand, sea of an intense blue color and shallow, ideal if you go with children. But keep in mind that there is a journey of approximately 40 minutes on foot, so try not to go during the hottest hours and take water for the road.

2.-Cavalleria in Es Mercadal. This beautiful cove is surrounded by a reddish landscape, clay soils and rocks that mix with the transparent blue of the sea. From the top of the stairs that go down to the beach, the landscape is incredible. It covers a good portion of the north coast.

3.-Cala Pregonda also in the municipality of Es Mercadal, is one of the most beautiful coves we have seen. Its dark golden sand, its transparent waters and the rocks that emerge in the middle of the sea with whimsical shapes inspired the covers of two albums by Mike Olfield.

4.-Cala Pilar between Ferreries and Ciutadella, difficult to access and incredibly beautiful with its reddish, golden and green tones. Before coming we have made sure that the north wind does not blow because this cove is very exposed to this north wind.

5.-Algairens Beach in Ciutadella. These wonderful virgin coves, des Tancats and des Bot, are known in Menorca by the name of La Vall. Access is easy because there is a car park about 500 meters from the first beach, which became well known for being the scene of part of the advertisement that Estrella Damm made in 2010.

6.-Cala Macarella Near Ciutadella, surrounded by vegetation and white cliffs with some prehistoric caves. We arrived at a public car park and from there we walked about 10 minutes to the beach. María went ahead and invited us to hurry to see, according to her, "the most beautiful place in the world."

7.-Cala Turqueta It has the bluest waters we have ever seen. Bright turquoise. A small beach of clear, clean sand between cliffs from which vegetation sprouts, culminating in the symphony of colors in this landscape. It looks like a painting. The sea attracts us, especially since we have walked 10 minutes from the car park and today is a splendid day. Bluest waters we have ever seen. Bright turquoise. We had a very fun afternoon.

8.-Cala Mitjana Very close to Ferreries, with nearby parking and a small forest that offers captivating shade. The soft and fine sand of light colors entangles our feet. Here we have found a couple of groups of people snorkeling. Many fish are seen in the sea, especially near the rocks. And this beach also has surprise!: its sister Cala Mitjaneta, to the west, a cove that looks like a toy. Beautifull! .

9.- Binigaus was the first stop. We walked along the beach, long and narrow, we swam to a rock that rises in the sea not far from the shore and we rested for a while before taking the Camí de Cavalls to go, between the green field full of yellow flowers, and the stone walls, to a small and isolated cove.

10.-Cala Escorxada there was no one, all to ourselves. We imagine that we are lost on a desert island and what we would do to ask for help and help us get out of there. But no one wanted them to find us! We would have stayed to live there, in the middle of nature and with a sea so transparent that, although the water covered us up to our necks, we could see our toes very clearly.
