Situated on the eastern coast of Menorca, the elegant town of Mahon has always been renowned for its fantastic port, a 4 mile long deepwater harbour which was protected by forts at its mouth. It attracted the attention of the British Navy in 1708 and they conquered the island, in order that they could have the use of the port, the British kept control until around 1802 apart from a brief spell under the French in 1756 (it was lost by the famous Admiral Byng who was subsequently put before a firing squad).

These days Mahon gets most of its income from tourism, it is thought to have given its name to Mayonnaise, though this is by no means certain. Menorca's airport lies to the south-west of the town and just a few minutes drive from the centre. The town is called Maó in Catalan.
