- As you go to Cala Morell, by car, bus or bike, you will pass through the access to the beaches of Algaiarens.

The good thing about Cala Morell is that it offers many leisure possibilities as it is an urban beach but very close to the limit of the Marine Reserve of Menorca.
- You can dive with bottles, snorkel, swim the bay. The waters of Cala Morell are very well protected,so unless the wind blows strongly from North or West, the beach is quite calm
- Being in an urban area, there are restaurants and you can eat with sea views in the Baristiu or Trogloditas.
- And if you want a little sport or movement, you can walk through the urbanization or the Camí de Cavalls. If you leave the beach and go along the Camí de Cavalls to the east (looking at the sea, on the right), you will see spectacular houses with very good views over the cliffs.
