“Paradise”
Review of Cala Macarelleta

Ranked #2 of 197 things to do in Menorca

Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

This was my favorite beach on the south in Menorca (do not forget to check out the very different north side beaches!) you park at Cala Macarella, and walk around to the right up and over the cliff to Macarelleta. We were here in May and the crowds were not bad at all. Even better for us, it rained during our walk to Cala Mitjana and by the time we returned, the beach was our own and the sun was out again!

Yes, this one is stunning. Note that the picture used by trip advisor banner is not macarelleta, but rather the bigger neighbouring macarella. In order to get to the most beautiful smaller beach (just around the corner to the right) you need to take the path that leaves the beach on the right end - it goes over the cliff for about a 10 minute walk to a beach that is -unbelievably- far more beautiful. Oh, and yes it was warm enough to swim in in April. And yes there are naked men and women around.

Beautiful beach and a nice walk from Cala Galdana. The rather one-horse cafe there we remembered has turned into a busy and extremely reasonably priced restaurant

Even if often crowed, this beach is reasonably considered the most beautiful in the island! If you enjoy the seaview from the hill surrounding the bay, you can admire lots of boats that seem to flot in the air...
It is simply speechless!
I recommend to reach the beach as soon as you can in the morning...so that you can take the best photos!

The best of Menorca's southern coves. Busy, hard to get to but worth it. Walk (30 minutes) from Cala Galdana, park in the car park for nearby Macarella or visit via boat (or sea kayak). A must visit.
