Where The Past Blends With The Present To Perfection…
During its British occupation, Es Castell was known as Georgetown, having been named after King George III, the village was indeed used as an army barracks. Today this feature just adds to the fascinating history and stunning architecture of this beautiful Menorcan resort.
Holidays to Es Castell capture the past and blend it with the present to perfection. The straight roads, Georgian buildings and traditional British clock tower conjure up images of days gone by and today’s quaint town square was once the army’s parade ground. Mix this with the fantastic fish restaurants, modern bars and cafes of today and you’re brought right back to the present day with a very pleasant bump.
Add to this the fact that Es Castell is the most easterly village in the kingdom of Spain and it’s no wonder that Es Castell holidays think that they are something special.
You have the choice of two beautiful small coves; Calas Fons and Calas Corb on holidays in Es Castell, one either side of the town, while the soft sandy beach of Cala Mesquida is just a ten minute stroll away. Calas Fons also has a wonderful traditional harbour and lazy days on Es Castell holidays can be spent relaxing in one of the quintessential cafes and bars built into the harbour wall. Es Castell holidays are also lucky enough to be graced by one of the largest natural harbours in the world, just to the north at Mahon.
