This should be on the must see list for anyone visiting Mahon. How proud must the volunteer guides and other workers be of the way this site has been rebuilt. A short trip on the yellow boat from Mahon harbour takes you to this incredible...More

It cost €7pp to get out to the old hospital island on the Yellow Catamarans; running twice daily on Sundays and once on Thursdays. The volunteers accept donations that go towards the continued renovations and upkeep of the island's buildings. It's a really interesting place...More
