I have selected six of the most beautiful beaches for you to visit. As I have previously mentioned the Menorcan beaches are one of its greatest prizes. With over one hundred to choose from this selection is mearly an insight into Menorcan Beaches
Cala en Turqueta
Head towards the church at Sant Joan
about 6kms from Ciutadella. Follow the signs to Cala en Turqueta. Along the route you can also access the more secluded beach at Cala des Talajer and the Cova des Moro.
Cala en Turqueta is a lovely sandy cove. It is fairly secluded
with few amenities such as the car park 5 minute walk from the beach. On route you should stop at the Talaia d'Artruxt for breathtaking views out towards the
neighbouring island of Majorca.
Es Grau is located in eastern Menorca just a short distance from the capital Mahon. It is a stunning horseshoe bay with fine golden
sands backed by sand dunes and shady pine forests. Close by are the natural wetland reserve of Albufera with it's wild birds.
Boat trips to the little Islet of Colom, with its virgin sands depart from this beach.
This one of my daughter's family's favourite beaches. Situated in the middle of the south coast Cala Santa Galdana, to give it its full name, is often
referred to as "The Queen of Menorcan Beaches". Virtually surrounded by high cliffs the bay is beautifully sheltered.The beach of
white sand is at the mouth of Menorc's only river and the Algendar ravine which provides a backdrop of pine trees. The bay is
ideal for swimming and the eastern part of the beach provides shade, early in the day, from the summer sun. Cala Galdana also has
a childrens playground and a water park.
To the west of Fornells on the North coast of Menorca in a protected area of natural beauty. The beach is about 20 minutes walk from Binimella.
Cala Pregonda offers a delightful stretch of sand surrounded by ususual rocks and hills cloathed in Tamarisk and Pine tree.
The beach is undeveloped with no facilities. However this special beach is worth the effort of a visit if only for a refreshing swim.
Cala d' Algaiarens
Located on private land west of Cala Pregonda on Menorca's nothern coast it offers an area of oustanding natural interest
with its dense pine forest. Take the Ronda Norte from Ciutadella and head for Cala Morell. At Torre dEn Quart go straight on towards
Algaiarens and look out for La Vall. The two beaches of es Bots and des Tancats are divided by a large rock and are at the mouth of an
inlet where shallow crystal clear waters meet golden sands. There is a 4 Euro access charge, but well worth it for the opportunity to see such a beautiful beach and
to escape the crowds on the south coast and explore this attractive area.
On the road south from Ferreries take a left just before you reach Cala Galdana. Follow the rough road down to a free car park.
A 5 minute walk brings you to this little known cove with pine clad low white cliffs. Snorkeling and swimming conditions are excellent and
Cala Mitjana is close by. These beautiful beaches are undeveloped so come prepared.
