This is one of the best beaches I have been to! It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the car park. Note that driving to the car park from Cuitadella is a very narrow road with lots of blind turns (and at points, the road was only wide enough for one car) - take it slow and... More

This beach is only accessible by foot. A lovely cliff walk with amazing views will bring you to this hidden jewel. So beautiful. We drove to the carpark for the nearby beach of Cala Macarella. The walk down to this beach took around 15 minutes through a wood on a well signposted path. The beach here is lovely but we... More

you need to walk good 15 min, in order to access this beautiful beach, however, it is worth it. The place has cafe/restaurant where you can get drink or snack. We visit it on the cloudy day, so it was not so crowded. One of the hidden places of Menorca!

This is beautiful Menorcan beach, accessed by a short, very enjoyable walk from Cala Galdana. The water is crystal clear, excellent swimming or lounging. One of the best.

I've been visiting Cala Macarella and Macaretta for over 20 years now and each time we find it gets busier, particularly during the high season. The azure blue waters and nearby limestone rocks are truly magnificent. It's fascinating to realise that the caves above the waterline were home to Minorca's early inhabitants and that they too swam and lived in... More

It's a jewel this lovely beach, in spring and autumne, not in the rush season of summer, also nice walks around; people comes here because there is nothing, only the sky and the sea, and the silence, not a trace of luxury, so simply loved it;
