Festival de Sant Joan: from Mahon to Ciutadella by car
When exploring Mahon in a hire car it is always worth visiting Ciutadella. Every year in June Menorcans fill the streets in celebration of Saint John. Numerous concerts are held all over Menorca, dances are performed and horses are raced. In particular the processions of riders on horseback through the historic quarter are impressive. At the end of the two-day celebrations there is a large fireworks display. If you are spending your holidays on Menorca in June, you should book a hire car through TUI Cars, because the Festival de Sant Joan is a major highlight of the year for the islanders, mainlanders and tourists alike. As always the good sunny weather makes a tour in a cabriolet or roadster all the more fun and generates more unforgettable memories.
From Mahon to Son Bou by car
The most beautiful beaches of Menorca can be reached in a few minutes by car from Mahon. These long sandy beaches are perfect for sunbathing. Water sports enthusiasts are literally in their element here, with so many options. Especially popular is the 2.5 km-long sandy beach of Son Bou, where, between the sea and dunes, that special holiday feeling is in the air all day. From the car rental office in Mahon you can reach the seaside resort of Son Bou in about 20 minutes, and handy parking at the edge of the beach ensures short walking distances. You do not have to pack a picnic basket, because there are many shops, bars and restaurants right on the beach. In a hire car you can also reach the Designer Outlet Center of Son Bou.
From the natural harbour to the historic quarter of Mahon
The attractive and quaint historic quarter of the Menorcan capital Maó, which is Mahon in Menorcan, is popular with visitors. The small winding alleys and squares tell of the varied history of Mahon, which draws its charm from the tension of British and Spanish influences. Sights include the old city gate Portal de Sant Roc and the church Iglesia de Santa Maria. If you hire a car in Mahon, you will want to drive to the two fortresses Sant Felip and La Mola, built to protect the entrance to the port on the water side. A guided tour of La Mola fortress is a must.
