Mahon alone, the capital city in the easternmost island region of Menorca in Spain, and the surrounding area have great sights and places to visit that can be easily reached by car from all parts of Menorca. The Mediterranean ambience around the natural harbour with its cafés, restaurants and bars invites you to stay after a varied excursion on holiday.
The lighthouse Faro de Favaritx is one of Mahon's most famous sights. The explorer takes the way to the lighthouse on foot. And the small footpath is worthwhile, as you will be rewarded with a fascinating view over the Mediterranean Sea to the horizon. The rocky outcrop of the surrounding natural parks is reminiscent of an adventurous moonscape.

Many places of interest are easily accessible by rental car from the capital Mahon
After a stay in Mahon we continue about 16 kilometres to Mercadal. From Mercadal, a steep winding road leads to Monte Toro and the Franciscan nuns. Monte Toro is the highest elevation in Menorca with 357 metres. Here the monastery, the courtyard and a chapel invite you to take a break. The monumental patron saint is enthroned high above the altar and Mount Toro and watches over the idyllic island in the sea. Only those who have a car are able to reach this place. 9 kilometres from the capital, the Torre de Fornells is located on a promontory above the port of Fornells. The Torre de Fornells can be climbed. Those interested can also have a look at the weapons and powder chamber and the garrison apartment. From here, the tour continues by rental car to the S' Albufeira de Grau nature reserve just a few kilometres north of Mahon. This is the second largest wetland in the Balearic Islands and offers the driver of a rental car not only oaks, junipers, pines and many reeds but also a bay and beach to relax. Amateur ornithologists are equally richly rewarded here as on the large neighbouring island of Mallorca in Spain.

After the rest stop in S' Albufeira de Grau the next part of the route in Spain may be a bit longer. After about 20 kilometres, the Cova of the Colom surprises with a cave entrance, which, viewed from the inside, has the shape of a ghost. Perhaps the caves hold some of the secrets that can be revealed during your holiday. The surrounding area around Mahon on Menorca offers countless other impressive places to discover on a round trip by rental car.

The west of Menorca also has some great treasures to offer. From Mahon, the journey by rental car passes beautiful coasts and bays or across the island to the west side. Unlike a Majorca crossing, the route is only 47 kilometres long and can be reached within an hour's drive. In the west, guests are greeted by the historic town of Ciutadella. The city radiates great charm with its baroque style. Noble palaces of the nobility and even a lively harbour quarter for those who want to celebrate decorate the city. Here it is worthwhile to make a small or big stop and enjoy the tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle.
Menorca: Unforgettable Car Rental Vacation
In Menorca, nobody travels from sight to sight. In between, there are always stops worth seeing. The many beaches and bays, such as the longest island beach Son Bou or the bay of Cala en Porter, make even the most dedicated culture lover happy to have a day at the beach. Landscapes of plants and rocks can be seen not only in nature reserves. They can be found all over the island and are very popular with families. Parents are happy to explain the diversity of plants to their children. At certain times, fruit and vegetable cultivation on the island is booming at the same rate as on the sister island of Mallorca. Small, down-to-earth restaurants conjure up delicious dishes from natural ingredients. Here the holidaymaker can enjoy the light lunch snacks of the Menorquina.
