The town of Mahon, or Mao is a pleasure to visit for some time ashore. There is a lovely Mediterranean atmosphere in the town with bustling pavement cafes, marvellous fruit and fish markets with a maze of narrow cobble streets. Go up to the Plaza de Espana, where market stalls line the arcades of the former Carmelite friary. The town hall and the church of Santa Maria both stand in the Plaza de la Constitucion. Just near this square, you’ll find The Ateneo Cientifico Literario y Artístico – a museum of natural history, archaeology and art. Mahon also offers a myriad of stylish shops and bars.
You can anchor in the Cala Taulera just inside the entrance to the harbour; or in the anchorage close west of Isla des Rey; or in the mouth of Cala Llonga, outside the moorings.
