is located almost geographically dead centre of the island. Approximately 25-35 mins., from the Airport.

Es Mercadal is a small market town in the centre of the island, with a medieval old centre of rustic whitewashed houses lining pretty narrow streets. It lies at the base of Monte Toro, Menorcas highest 'mountain' (357 m). On top there are viewing areas and a small cafeteria. From here there is an excellent view of the whole island upto the bay at Fornells and the northern coast and the hills of the islands' centre, down to the southern coast.

A good stopping off point for a break if travelling along the center of the island.

The town is also home to traditional cakes and biscuits - "amargos ( almond macaroons ) ", "carquinyols" and "torro cremat" which you will find in the little cake and pastry shops along the main shopping road. Great places for a coffee, teas and edible treats.

Es Mercadal is also the gateway to the northern coast virgin beaches ( Binimel-la and Pregonda ) reached along very scenic country roads.
