Traffic Information

Traffic Information

When you arrive at Menorca Mahon Airport take our clearly marked shuttle bus to the rental area. The bus departs from outside the arrivals hall. The Menorca Ciutadella office can be found in the Skyline hotel next to the Old Harbour. This can be reached by taxi from the airport or by taking a bus into the capital city of Mahon and then on to Ciutadella.

The Menorcan government is very keen to preserve its natural landscape meaning there are very few coastal roads. Most journeys are made on the ME-1 which runs across the island's backbone while narrower roads take you down to coastal villages and beaches. A Sat Nav helps you navigate the one-way systems and narrow streets of the island's main towns. Spanish driving regulations state that children under 12 are not allowed to ride in the front of vehicles.

During the peak months of July and August parking at the most popular beaches fills up early in the morning. When car parks are full the narrow access roads are closed to avoid traffic jams. Underground and street parking are available in Mahon and Ciutadella de Menorca.

Start your visit with a drive to Mahon, also called Maó, the island's capital. This town boasts the second largest natural deep water port in the world (after Pearl Harbour). Fighting between the British, French and Spanish over this port led to the island's often turbulent history and the mix of architecture and culture that can be seen today. You can never drive far on the island without coming across a fort. La Mola Fortress demonstrates 19th-century Spanish military architecture while Fort Marlborough is an earlier British example. No one quite knows when Menorca was first inhabited but the Museu de Menorca housed in a former 15th-century Franciscan monastery gives visitors a good overview of the island's past.

Menorca's Strong Culinary Tradition

Menorca's Strong Culinary Tradition

Maó has long been recognised for its distinctive and strongly flavoured cheese. Visit the town and roadside markets to try it and others for your picnic lunches accompanied with fresh local tomatoes and salad produce. The unique Minorcan Cheese Museum was created by the Hort de Sant Patrici family to preserve and share the island's culinary traditions. A tour reveals how cheese is made by hand along with a fascinating collection of artefacts and tools. Another distinctive taste of the island is its gin. The Xoriguer Gin distillery gives visitors a chance to sample its distinctive and aromatic taste. Menorcan gin is rarely sold away from the island so be sure to take some home as a souvenir along with your cheese.

The island coastline is full of sandy beaches, many of which are empty and tranquil for much of the year. Cala Pregonda Beach is considered to be the island's most beautiful and is well worth the twenty-minute walk from the nearest parking at Binimel·là. This isolation ensures the beach remains quiet all year round.

Archaeological sites are dotted all over the island, many of them burial structures or Navetas. The best example is the Naveta des Tudons close to Ciutadella. Dating from 1300 BC it is believed to be the oldest roofed building in Europe. Now open to tourists, when it was first discovered in the 1950's it contained many prehistoric burials.

Spend a day in your car hire searching out the seven lighthouses spread around the Menorcan coastline. Start at Favàritx in the North East of the island. The lunar-like landscape of the area is one of the most photographed places on Menorca. Visiting on a windy day reveals just how powerful the sea has been in creating the landscape.

Menorca's economy has moved from a historic infrastructure based on military defence to tourism. This is now the biggest economic sector and largest employer on the island. Wine production used to be important but declined in the 19th-century. This is now being reversed by small independent wineries. Artisan cheese, gin production, costume jewellery and shoemaking all make contributions to the island's income. Menorca does not have a purpose-built conference centre although many hotels do have facilities available for shows and meetings. The island's government office or Catalan Consell Insular de Menorca is a modern building in Maó which is host to regular trade and environmental events.
