Our co-owner Oscar shares his top 10 beaches (and other glorious spots!) to reach by boat on the beautiful Balearic island of Menorca.

  1. Only accessible on foot or by boat, Binigaus Beach offers a perfect contrast between the blue of the sea and the green of the fields. Relax and feel at one with nature as you swim in the crystal waters taking in the landscape of lush green grass, trees, and horses roaming freely over the fields.
  2. Featured on an album cover for one of Mike Olfield’s records and a favorite hiding place for European royalty, Cala Pregonda is without a doubt one of the most magical corners of the island. The formations of its rocks create a unique lunar landscape and you can enjoy natural pools along the shoreline.
  3. A wonder of the natural world, Pont d’en Gil is a spectacular natural rock arch that has been shaped by the force of the waves over centuries. The best way to enjoy this great natural spectacle is by boat.
  4. Cala Pilar is one of the most beautiful wild beaches on the island. Located within the marine reserve of the north coast where natural fishing is prohibited, it’s an ideal place to practice snorkeling.
  5. The Port of Mahón is not only one of the most beautiful places on the island, it’s also rich in history and life. A must to enjoy by boat or on foot!
  6. Cala Macarelleta is possibly the most widely recognized images of Menorca’s virgin beaches and features on many a picture postcard. If you’re looking for the most turquoise blue water, this is one of the best places to visit. Why not walk there from Cala Galdana along the pine footpaths of the Camí de Cavalls.
  7. Es Talaier is one of the smallest coves in Menorca. A hidden gem between the iconic beaches of Cala Turqueta and Son Saura. Intimate, perfect for couples and where the crystal blue water is always awaiting you.
  8. A firm favorite with the family of our co-owner, Cala Algaiarens is the closest beach to the old town of Ciutadella and popular with locals. Calm, protected sea and shallow waters for quite a distance make it perfect for kids.
  9. Let us share a secret with you. A sunset boat excursion to Cavalleria Beach is a must on Menorca. Have a swim in the calm blue waters while the sun goes down – an awesome moment for your eyes and something you will remember forever.
  10. On the southern side of the island in between Cala Galdana and Cala Trebalúger lies Cala Mitjana, another favorite. It’s an open, clear blue cove with high cliffs on either side offering stunning views.
