Beaches in Menorca can be classified per accessibility in three groups:
You can reach them driving or riding, by sea, or with a pick, climbing
boots and high morale.
In all cases, the island has the best virgin beaches
in the Balearics and also the most spectaculars, either for the
cliffs or woods that surround them or for the turquoise blue of
the water and the clearness of the bottom of the sea.
Most of them have no services for tourism. For some people that is an
inconvenient but for others that is the best way to preserve the nature
of the less attacked island of the Balearics.
For those who have a boat and can visit the island by sea, we recommend
you to do it.
The North beaches are the most vigin and spectacular beaches an the
island. Here the coast is rocky and the sand is red-dish.We recommend
you to take shoes suitable for water so as not to hurt your feet. These
beaches receive the full force of the Tramuntana wind, which surfers
enjoy. the bottom of the sea is good for diving.
The East beaches are the closest to Maó, the capital. they are
usually formed by small cliffs, more cuitable for visiting than sunbathing
and are mostly visited by the people living in the city.
The South beaches are ideal for those who like typical inlets with turquoise
blue water and fine white sand. Due to its breathtaking views, we recommend
to start your tour on the road that links Punta Prima and Binidalí.
Next to Punta Prima is I´lla del Aire, a piece of land that seems
to have been dropped in the sea, with a lighthouse on one end and thousands
of lizards running around.
At the west are the most developed and crowded beaches. Particularly
visited by families due to their comprehensive range of tourist services.
Soft cliffs surround the coast and the sunsets are spectacular.
