This place gets fewer reviews than the 'main' beach in Menorca but this place is pretty incredible. Good parking, accessible for cars, nice hike, wide beautiful beach with turquoise seas. If you don't wanna get up at 8am and battle with loads of cars and right roads, just go here

Yes we did cliff jumping and swam into a series of caves. Great snorkeling in and out of the caves. Children should be able to swim to a good standard in order to get onto standing rocks in and out of the caves. The cliff jumping was great - I jumped at seven metres but some jumped at nine metres. There is a ten minute walk to the beach so bring backpacks. This was my favourite beach in Menorca. Great atmosphere and surroundings. This beach is really for swimmers, snorkeling and cliff jumping. The beach area had a lot of sea grass on it and was quite small.

My daughter and I took a horse trek through the bridle paths to this beach. It’s beautiful and a great walk or cycle for anyone looking for an alternative day out. I’d recommend taking a picnic. The south side of the island doesn’t have the winds or the choppy sea of the north. The beach was busy and there were people snorkelling, I’m told there are lots of fish to see in this cove. The bridle way is sheltered under tree canopies which was a lovely respite from the 40 degree heat. Next year we will explore further.

We went end of season so only a handful people on the beach so it was really lovely. I can only imagine how busy it must get peak season. The views on the way are awesome. Only slight negative was the strange smell , a bit like sulphur?

Just back from a great holiday most of which was spent on Cala Galdanas beautiful beach. With a European blue flag award the beach sits in a lovely picturesque bay with clean water, white sand and great facilities. The beach has lifeguards, loungers (17 euros per day for two loungers and a parasol) pedalled (18 euros per hour but take up to 6), showers, toilets ( free) a medical centre with its own ambulance and motor boat hire ( where a licence / certificate of competency is not required). The boats carry up to 5 and cost 50 euros per hour which is a little steep however is really only 10 euros each person. If it's too rough and their idea of rough is not the same as mine ! You can rearrange or get a refund. There is plenty of free shade with trees at the back of the beach and to buy a parasol for the beach is about 10 euros at either of the two beach shops. If you hire a kayak do it from the beach rather than the rental shop at the side of the audax hotel as it is much cheaper and the kayaks are exactly the same. Both the beach restaurants are excellent with a wide range of food and drinks providing good value for money snacks and meals.

We had been here on previous holidays and were keen to go again, it's very picturesque but the overpowering, almost indescribable stench of what I can only describe as raw sewage, cleared the beach in a heartbeat...that and the delights of a lady allowing her small child to defecate into a nappy bag and then hiding it in the rocks did somewhat seal the experience.

Now named the day we went to hell! I imagine it's a beautiful scenic beach if you could see it. After we'd trawlled 30 minute through some rather hilly paths in 34+ wearing heat the first view we saw were people laying their beach towels in the paths down to the sand. Thinking that maybe these people had a liking for sunbathing on rather bumpy cobbled stones we then realised that the path was pretty much the only area left to lie on.

I have never seen a beach so packed with sweaty tourists vying to stay to make the 30 minute sweaty hike worth it. We dipped for 5 mins in the sea before promptly turning back round to hike back.. on my slightly more befuddled as to why anyone would find this relaxing! We did stop for a quick drink on one of the benches with the company of a heated used nappy, left by some poor tourist who'd probably decided carrying it back to a bin was one step too far.

If you like being able to hear the stranger next to you breathing, or fancy sharing a beach towel with someone you've never met.. this is a highly recommended beach for you. For me I prefer a little space to roll over safely in the knowledge I won't roll on to someones' sweaty sandwiches.

Gorgeous beach, beautiful clear turquoise waters & gently shelving sands. You have to walk from the car park, which takes about 15 minutes down hill (bit of a climb on way back up, wouldnt be good on a hot day with kids and bags etc) worth the walk though. You can also walk from Cala Galdana via a coastal path, which takes around 30 -40 mins? You can also get to Cala Mitjaneta too, which isnt very big but lovely spot. Mitjana is supposed to get busy in summer months, but i walked down during October and there were only a handful of visitors. Two women in the water basically had the cove to themselves when we arrived, then one other man went in for a swim, but hardly a soul. There are a couple of purpose built toilets near the beach but not directly on it, there are no other facilities as it is unspoilt by man. Take your own food and drink if you plan on staying a while.

Two beautiful bays, one small and cosy the other large. Take a camera you will want to recall the picture. Not to much shade so maybe a sun umbrella and no facilities so you need water ad some snacks. The walk is approx 1.5km from the East side of Cala Galdana and takes you through a beautiful wooded area. The last part of the walk down to the first bay is quite steep and very rocky after all it was a stone quarry nearby and many mules have climbed the path before us. Birds greet you all the way along the walk. Swimming and Snorkelling is excellent. Sometimes there are Jelly Fish ( small ) take some Antihistimine cream with you along with the factor 30+. Nudity is sometimes practised. Its still heaven perhaps you will find yours.

Lovely walk and worth while going to the view points on the way there or back as its just stunning. Fab little cafe on the beach as well but also worth taking a few snacks and drinks with you to keep you going.
