Es Mercadal is one of the main inland towns in Menorca and is also a historically significant part of the island, marking the half-way point for British troops travelling west from the new capital of Menorca to the old. Today it is a charming, white-washed town and serves as one of the most convenient locations from which you can explore all parts of the coastline on day trips with public transport or your own hire car.
There are a number of things to do and see in and around Es Mercadal which make it a popular holiday destination with both families and couples. A visit to Monte Toro, the highest peak in Menorca, is highly recommended for enjoying panoramic views of the island. The town itself is only home to around 5000 people so although there isn’t much to see in Es Mercadal in terms of landmarks, a wander through the picturesque streets is one of the most relaxing and peaceful things that you can do. Unfortunately, Es Mercadal isn’t situated by any beaches which can put off some holidaymakers.
There are a reasonable amount of accommodation options in Es Mercadal given that it is a relatively small town. You will find two hotels to choose from including the highly acclaimed Hotel M-27.
