Es Migjorn Gran is a small municipality in southern Minorca in the Spanish Balearic Islands. Formerly incorporated into the municipality of Es Mercadal, it is now the island's newest and second-smallest municipal district. The main inland village of Es Migjorn Gran is surrounded by small pine-clad hills, and the coast is home to a small variety of tourist resorts and unspolit beaches, Santo Tomas being the principal resort. There are many 'calas' or coves that are encompassed by pine-covered cliffs along the coast, where there are small sandy beaches only accessible by foot or by sea, which mean they are very rarely busy.
Es Migjorn Gran borders the municipality of Ciutadella (Ciudadella), Ferreries (Ferrerías), Es Mercadal (Mercadal) and Alaior (Alayor). Nearby are the resorts of Son Bou and Cala Galdana, the latter being the most-photographed bay in Europe.
It was the hometown of Joan Riudavets, the oldest Spanish citizen on record.(Wikipedia)
