Menorca Urlaub Tipps

Mahon is often seen in english holiday literature as the name for the island's capital. The correct name though is Maó (prenounced 'Maow') and will be used in local literature,maps,road signs and on buses/timetables.

Getting Around and Transfers from sea and airports

There has an island wide bus network in addition to taxis and local transport services. Note that there are very few coastal roads so you will travel inland and then back out to the coast. This is due to most of the island being in private ownership and helps preserve the island from over development and spoiling of the beautiful natural coastlines.
