Mahón Harbour

In the soft silence of the early morning, a cruise-ship enters Mahón Harbour. With its engines barely moving the vessel glides through the mouth of the port which at 5 km long is one of the largest natural harbours in the world.


The passengers line the deck and gaze at a shoreline steeped in history. The ship edges around the islands of Lazareto and Isla del Rey, past the magnificent houses on the north shore, the white walls of the English cemetery, the mussel- beds - and finally reaches the city. It clings to the soaring cliffs, etched with the silhouettes of the bell-tower of the Santa Maria church and the dome of Carmen, the jetties by the water strung with sailing-boats, yachts and fishing-boats.
Mahón Harbour offers a never-ending array of possibility to its visitors. There are restaurants, cafes and bars with music all along the front. And if you are tempted as you sip a drink on one of their shaded terraces, go and explore the north shore with all its tiny hidden bays and wharves and lookouts. And of course you see it all from the water itself in one of the trip-boats.
