An important little helper.
As you look around you might well get confused by place names: is Calan Porter the same as Cala D'en Porter, where is this placed called Mao, i'm looking for Mahon?
Tour operators, guides will often use Anglicised place names and plain lazy spelling! We give you all possible resort names . So Mao is correct and so is Mahon - they are the same place.

Best time of year to visit
Clearly the temperatures in May, June, September and October are possibly more suited to visitors from northern europe. In addition there is less bussle and generally prices are a lot less ( accommodation, car hire and menu offers. )
