Ibiza and the Balearic Islands Travel Guide


A little village (full-time population: 500) of whitewashed houses with red-tile roofs, Fornells comes alive in the summer high season, when Spanish and Catalan families arrive in droves to open their holiday chalets at the edge of town and in the nearby beach resorts. The bay—Menorca's second largest and deepest—is good for windsurfing, sailing, and scuba diving. The

first fortifications built here to defend the Bay of Fornells from pirates date to 1625.

Buses leave the Estació Autobusos on Calle José Anselmo Clavé in Mahón for the 50-minute 40-km (24-mile) trip to Fornells at 10:30, 12:30, 3, 5 and 7. By car, it’s an easy half-hour drive north on route PM710.
