Cala Tortuga is an unspoilt beach on the north coast of Menorca, located next to the lighthouse of Favàritx and very close to the also known Cala Presili (or Cala Capifort). Cala Tortuga is also known as Arenal de Morella, but in all guides, maps and posters it appears as Cala Tortuga. The name of the beach comes from the turtles that inhabit the lagoon next to the beach (Morella lagoon).Read more

Isolated from civilization and in the midst of s’Albufera des Grau we find the Cape of Favàritx. The Cape of Favàritx is located in the Tramontana area of the island (the northern area) and is geologically very ancient, specifically from the primary era, also known as Paleozoic.
In the same cape of Favaritx we can find the Favaritx Lighthouse.

When you head towards the lighthouse you will have the feeling that you are in another island, that it is not Menorca at all.Read more
