NIGHT LIFE

Most of the island's nightlife takes place in and around the two main towns ( on port ) of Mahon and Ciutadella

Undoubtedly the most dramatic nightspot on the island is Cova d'en Xoroi at Cala en Porter. This has to rate as one of the world's most unusual discos. Set high in the rocks, it's a cave bar with fantastic sea views by day. At night it's transformed into an ultra-modern disco with sophisticated light and sound systems and views of the sea and sunset via a hole in the rock. Psychedelic or what?! During the summer season, professional jazz musicians holidaying on the island give the club an extra boost.

Son Martorellet is one of Minorca’s most historical and traditional estates. Our original activity was based on cattle breeding of sheep. Since 1997 we have been exclusively dedicated to the breeding, care and training of the Minorcan Breed horse.

Our priority is the promotion of the Minorcan Horse. In order to do so, we cover all equestrian arts: Resident Show “SOMNI”, elite school exhibitions, dressage competitions, on road shows end events not only in Minorca but all around the European territory.

The cycle of popular fiestas held in each town starts in Ciutadella , with the celebration of San Joan . The horse is the central figure in the festivities: tens of thousands of people sorround these noble animals, shouting and clapping to encourage them, while dancing to a rythmic beat is characteristic of these fiesta.

Fiestas and summer are very closely interlink as , following the San Joan fiestas , the celbrations in other municipal districts and towns follow on until the fiestas of Mao , at the beguining of september. Each place has its own special features wich can be noted if the visitor is prepared for careful observation , although the horse continues in its central role in the fiesta.
