Menorca- Mayonnaise was invented in Menorca and a traditional cheese made on the island (fromage de Mao) is named after the city. It has more beaches than Mallorca and Ibiza combined. It has had an adventurous history based on it's position in the middle of the Mediterannean. Mahon has the second deepest natural harbour in the world: 5 km long and up to 900 metres wide. The water is deep but it remains mostly clear due to it being slightly enclosed.
We visited a small working town in the middle of the island- Es Mercadal, a rural, working town with a working windmill, but also a pretty upmarket and cheap holiday destination.
The ferry from Alcudia to Ciutedella takes about one and a half hours. Ciutedella is a great place to visit with it's Moorish buildings and cloisters and it's narrow harbour where the ferry used to turn. Nowadays a purpose built harbour out of town has been built.
