The main road through the island is the ME-1A and all of the major roads connect to this. It’s key to note that Mahon is often called Maó on signposts. Your hire car will most likely have GPRS but if you prefer to use a paper map, then make sure it’s up to date, as there have been changes to Menorcan road numbers in recent years. Seatbelts are compulsory on the island and it’s best not to drive wearing strapless sandals, as this is illegal.
