Holidays to Es Castell
If it’s a charming and historic holiday destination you are looking for, you cannot go wrong with Es Castell. This picturesque town on the east coast of Menorca was once a British military stronghold, which is evident from the many buildings, monuments, and squares here. Today the harbour front town is home to many excellent restaurants and bars overlooking the water and lovely hotels and holiday rentals. In addition, Es Castell is just a short drive away from stunning beaches and the fascinating capital city of Mahon.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Es Castell
Visitors on a holiday to Es Castell will never go hungry, as there are plenty of inviting restaurants serving up fine local and international cuisine. Try the caldereta de llagosta, a rich and hearty lobster stew, washed down with a gin con limonada, made with peppery gin distilled locally in Mahon. Whether you enjoy a light lunch overlooking the water, or a late dinner in a small candlelit taverna, Es Castell will not disappoint.
Although Es Castell does not rest on the shores of a sandy beach, it is only a few minutes drive to some of the island’s best swathes of sand. Punta Prima features pristine white sands and warm aquamarine waters, and S’Algar is home to a popular scuba diving centre where you can book trips to explore the underwater wonderland off the coast of Menorca.
Travellers on a holiday to Es Castell can also explore the capital city of Mahon, just a short taxi ride away. This scenic city rests on the top of jagged cliffs overlooking a long, deep harbour. Visitors can spend the day touring the historic Georgian buildings in the city, dining at stylish cafes and restaurants, or shopping at the many chic boutiques here. The craft and clothing market that takes place every Tuesday and Thursday is a great place to find incredible bargains.
