Keen shoppers and bargain hunters will love this day out in Menorca’s lively capital – Mahon. Saturday is market day in the city and this special tour for shoppers gives you the chance to enjoy this colorful event.
But the tour begins a little differently, with a wonderful cruise in Mahon’s famous deep-water harbor. Sniff the fresh sea breezes as you admire the old buildings along the waterfront and the gleaming millionaires’ yachts. An on-board commentary will tell you about the eventful history of this ancient port.
Once back on dry land, you have time to wander around Menorca's attractive capital and browse the market and shops. Full of atmosphere and color, the Saturday market is a great place to pick up souvenirs such as clothes, jewellery, or leather products.
The Mahon Shopping Tour, is arranged so that you will visit Mahon, the lively capital of Menorca, on market day. At the start of the tour will be picked up from your hotel and driven to Mahon harbor.
At the quay, you will board the Don Juan catamaran in Mahon Harbor, the second largest and deepest harbor in the world. It extends over 3 ½ miles inland and has been an important naval base since Roman times. Today, the harbor is often bustling with local fishing boats and billionaires’ yachts. During the 1-hour cruise you will enjoy an informative live commentary.
Following the cruise, you have plenty of free time for shopping and sightseeing in Mahon. On Saturdays the Mahon has a Saturday market selling crafts, clothes and trinkets. Markets in Menorca are an important part of community life and you will find lots of local people as well as visitors browsing the stalls.
As well as the vibrant market Mahon has good shops, museums, and the Santa Maria church, where between June to October you can hear an organ recital every morning.
When the trip is over you will be dropped back at your hotel.
