The city of Mahon – most commonly known as Mao – is located on the island of Menorca in the Mediterranean. The city has been influenced by British colonial architecture, and many of the buildings are painted wine red with white windows and door frames. It makes an interesting site for first-time visitors. The city is bustling and enjoys the warm weather of the Mediterranean area.
Visitors to the island and the city of Mahon can stay at one of the many conveniently located resorts to be found towards the south and southeast tip of the island. Most of the resorts are by the beaches, which fill up rapidly during the warm summer months and at weekends. If you enjoy swimming in the sea, you will need to keep an eye on the flags on shore, which indicate whether or not the conditions are good for entering the water. There are plenty of shops around the resorts and they are all close to the many museums and other activities in the city.
