Overview

Sant Climent ( also called San Climente ) is a small residential town with more than most. While small it's home to two of the islands icons to those in the know. Es Casino Bar Restaurant and Es Moli Foc. For holiday visitors with a hire care Sant Climent is a great first stop from the airport if you are hungry or fancy a first relaxing drink before heading off to your Villa or Apartment.

Located on the main road (ME-12) from Mahon to Cala en Porter Sant Climent is well worth a visit if you are in the area. "Famous" for Casino Bar-Restaurant (some of the best tasting/value) Menu del Dias on the island. Last shop on the right towards Cala en Porter is a traditional bakers where you can experience real bread made in real wood fired ovens in front of your eyes-tastes fantastic.

Sant Climent even has it's own micro brewery producing english style beers, on sale locally and across the island
