Cala Pregondó – S’Alairó – S’Embarcator

Cala Pregondó (also known as S’Alairó and S’Embarcador) is a small beach located next to its older sister Cala Pregonda.

It is a beach facing north but very well protected from the swell both by the pits of its right and by the Escull de Pregonda.

One of the curiosities of the sands of Pregonda and Pregondó is that they are part of the most fertile agricultural land of Menorca, known as Martinells. These lands are the ones that receive the most rainwater annually from all menorca.

Punta Nati Lighthouse

The Punta Nati lighthouse is the closest to the center of Ciudadela of all the lighthouses in Menorca (with the exception of Sa Farola). For me it is the best place in Menorca to watch the sunset. This lighthouse was built in 1912 to prevent the constant shipwrecks that occurred on the north coast of Ciudadela.

It can be reached by a spectacular road both by car and by bike. The road is two-way but incredibly narrow with two bike lanes on a fairly long stretch. If you drive your vehicle, you must be very careful because it is very easy to meet a cyclist in any curve.

From Galdana to Macarelleta – 5 km Viewpoint Route

The excursion from Cala Galdana to Cala Macarella and Macarelleta is one of the simplest and most beautiful that can be done in the southern area of Menorca.
The tour starts in Cala Galdana, where it is possible to leave the car in one of the free car parks in the area. From Cala Galdana you have to take the famous Camí de Cavalls (it is difficult to get lost).

Cala Tamarells South

The beach of Tamarells des Sud is a small unspoilt beach halfway between es Grau and the lighthouse of Favàritx, on the north coast of Menorca. It is a sandy beach actually formed by two beaches (Tamarells des Sud I and Tamarells des Sud II).

Both beaches are facing east and quite protected by the Illa d’en Colom island. Although in summer season there are usually people, it is not a very busy beach since you have to walk a good stretch to reach it.
