“Fine in May”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

Some of the reviews here talk of just Cala Macarelleta and others of the slightly larger Cala Macarella. Well, I figure that a key influence is time of year! In peak saeason, despite the fact the visitor will have to walk a liitle way, it is very likely both beaches are going to be busy. Cafeteria/Bar Susy provides welcome sustenance.

“Why do they say this is a nude beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

When we planned our vacation in Menorca we chose the Cala Galdana area for being to one of the most beautiful nude beaches you can find anywhere in the world. But when we went there it was a big disappointment. When we arrived early in the morning there were just 5 people naked and then people started arriving by dozens. All carrying their inflatable mattresses and not a single one with the intention of removing their clothes. By 3 pm there wasn't a single free square feet on the beach, I've never been on a beach more crowded than this. The few people without clothes had to put them on, as if there was something to be ashamed of. When we left we were the only ones that seemed to know what a nudist beach is...
The place is outstandingly beautiful, but it was all spoilt by the masses.
