Best beach ever

A small walk from Macarella on the cliff is easy as there is a path/steps etc. This is a nudist beach. The views are gorgeous and water is crystal clear.

One of the places I've been to in my life, when you first get there it feels like you are dreaming, just stunning! I don't even know how to describe this place..it's surreal. I can't tell how much I miss this place, definitely has a special place in my heart!

Absolutely the most beautiful beach on the island. It's well worth the short hike from Cala Macarella. Just take it easy heading up and take photos from the top. Bring a beach umbrella and water. There are no facilities. Once there, the water is crystal clear! Just like you're swimming in a pool. Amazing little cove.

I loved it so much This is easily one of the most stunning beaches I have seen around here Loved it Even though the walk is a bit tough and if you have any difficulty walking, perhaps skip it

It's short way from Macarella beach, but definitely worth to visit. At less to take some pictures and have a swim in light blue water. Biggest problem it's space. It small beach and people looks like sardines in the can. To find some space for your towel almost impossible, but you can stand. I will recommend this beach definitely

Stunning location, with scenery you will struggle to find elsewhere. The walk is difficult if you have any mobility issues but its not to bad otherwise.

Tiny nudist beach, very secluded with an amazingly blue water and white sand. The walk to it on the steep rocks was worth any second, we went few times and we stayed for the whole day.

From Cala Galdana it's probably a 40 minute stroll through pine and olive trees and along rocky paths, you don't need hiking boots but I wouldn't advise flip flops. It's sign posted and you drop down to the the beach via a good number of wooden steps. There's a bar etc, although we didn't visit. You can access the prehistoric... More

Macarelletta is the most beautiful beach on Menorca and one of the best I've ever seen. Sheltered aquamarine water gently falling away to sea. The perfect times to go are early morning (see the sunrise) and late afternoon. Sublime. The fact that it is nudist is, in my view, a bonus. The best view is from the headland midway between...
