Es Castell Menorca – Located at the mouth of Mahon’s port on the east coast of Menorca in the Spanish Balearic Islands, the seaside resort of Es Castell is a popular holiday destination which attracts many thousands of visitors each year especially during the traditional summer months (May to September). In what was previously a strategically important section of Menorca (the Brits overtook the port), it now attracts more attention from holidaymakers, who arrive to enjoy the sunny weather, the sandy beaches, and the friendly atmosphere. Es Castell which literally means “The Castle” has a somewhat English feel with a Georgian twist, harping back to the days of English rule, there is still an old parade ground which was used by troops in days gone by. Es Castell is gathered around two attractive coves and there is a small fishing harbour from which fishermen still operate today as they sail their boats on the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
