Breathtaking beach - beautiful

We found the beach after 30-40 mins walk through the Camis de Cavalls from Cala Galdana (signs across the area make it too obvious how to get there). We first went to Macarella... read more

We found the beach after 30-40 mins walk through the Camis de Cavalls from Cala Galdana (signs across the area make it too obvious how to get there). We first went to Macarella but it was way too busy for us and chose to move on to find this beach. Amazing sand, clean and crystal water, not too busy considering... More

Just amazing beach! At 8am the water was hot and few people in the beach. Just go earlier as possible to have the best experience. It worth the 30m walk.

We read travellers's advice before going to Minorca, and we knew that the best beaches are Macarella and Macareletta. However what we saw even exceded our expectation. Absolutely wild, magically beautiful and breathtakingly gorgeous!!! The only drawback is that both beaches ae really packed during high season.

We had very fond memories of this beach when we 'discovered' it 17 years ago but felt a bit disappointed on our return visit. Paid to park in car park and the walk down to the beach isn't too bad at all - 5 or 6 mins. It was very, very busy (but what can you expect on a glorious... More

We visited here, as had seen it was one of menorcas best beaches and that definitely isn't wrong. There is a bit of a walk from the car park, but we had done longer walks to some of menorcas beaches. Can get quite crowded, especially when there are boats in too. Nice little beach bar which offered burgers and drinks... More

This is a stunning beach with a lifeguard station and cafe (reasonably priced) but it's a long walk down from the car park and the road to the car park is a bit nerve racking! There are other beaches that are just as nice if not nicer that are much better accessibility wise.

The setting of the beach is great. I was there last weekend of August and it was packed. The water was not so clean (garbages floating about).

We went in August, there at 10am, the were letting the last few cars into the car park.....it was busy beyond belief and this detracted from the beauty of the beach (which is stunning), either get there super early or go later in the afternoon. They do close the beach car parks though, so you take a risk not getting... More
