A precious fishing village

Located on a bay and possessing Menorca’s only port outside of Mahón and Ciutadella, this small fishing village still maintains its traditional way of life while still being open to tourism, especially culinary tourism. Although we didn't try it, the lobster caldereta is a specialty in the area, so keep an eye out for it.

The town’s location is on a naturally-occurring port which is protected from the northern winds from the Tramontana which can get pretty intense at times.

The architecture of the streets and the white houses give the town a very relaxing vibe, although during summer the port is one of the busiest on the entire island. You’ll see boats pulling up from all around the world.

Old fishing village

Fornells is on the shore of a spectacular natural port and is an ideal place for practicing water sports. This old fishing village is famous for harvesting and preparing lobsters.

Fornells grew up around the Castle of San Antonio built in the 17th century, and there’s a small parochial church which dates back to 1650. In the port area, you’ll see an old defensive tower dating back to the 18th century.
