A different plan for Mahón
When you have already spent a few days of sun and beach, a good plan is to go to Mahón in the morning to have a quiet breakfast at the Jardí de Ses Bruixes. As they say, to make a “slow” breakfast prepared at the moment with products from the island and with homemade pastries. The holidays are to rest and there is no rush, that is why the cafe is open from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
If you go on Sunday, you can enjoy the best brunch on the island, since it is the only day of the week that they do it.
After buying the newspaper, some flowers and cheese and after taking a walk through the streets of Mahón, we went to see an exhibition.
Before eating, an obligatory stop is to have a very cool vermouth in the Fish Market, a meeting place for the islanders, there is usually a lot of atmosphere at noon. Do not be confused by the name, because not only fish are sold, but you can also taste a fabulous selection of assorted cheese tapas, island sobrasada, ham …
I have always found the Spanish version of the Chelsea market in New York, especially at night, where there is also usually live music.
At the end of the afternoon, a highly recommended plan is to go to one of the summer concerts at Terrassa Es Claustre . New composers and more consecrated voices of the music of our country, delight each year with intimate concerts and with little capacity in this space for artists. In the open air you can enjoy artists such as Monkey Doo , Da Souza with his Balearic Indie or Maria del Mar Bonet , the Majorcan composer 2020 national culture award.
If your stay in Menorca is several weeks, it is possible to buy a voucher for the whole summer that includes all the concerts in June, July and August and that has a much better price.
