Minorca is the second biggest of the Balearic Islands and lies within the western Mediterranean Ocean. Most of the island’s region of 258 square miles (668 square km) is dry, repetitive tableland with rugged slopes rising within the north middle to Toro slope. Its northern coast has numerous capes and is profoundly indented with channels such as the coves of La Albufera, Addaya, and Fornells. The fine characteristic harbor of Mahón, the island’s chief town, is the most excellent harbor of the Balearics and was much prized for its key esteem within the wars of the 18th century. The south coast is more normal and has long stretches of cliffs.
