Its bay is an excellent area for sailing.
Fornells is on the northern coast of Minorca. It is a peaceful fishing village whose bay is one of the biggest natural harbours on this Balearic Island (five kilometres long and two wide). There are a series of small beaches around the bay, along with the island of Las Sargantanes, where there is a fort that was built under English rule. Fornells has inspired many artists and is within a protected nature area. It is an ideal area for sailing. Don't visit the village without trying one of Minorca's gastronomic specialities: lobster casserole. At the end of July the San Antonio fiestas take place with the traditional "jaleo", with horses jumping up and down to the sound of music.
