Cova d’en Xoroi

The Cova d’en Xoroi (Xoroi’s Cave) is a natural cave placed in Cala en Porter, the south coast of Menorca. The cave can be visited during the day as well as in the evening. The cave recieves the name of Xoroi due to a turkish pirate who lived sheltered in the cave during years and who survived stealing. The legend tells that when they discovered Xoroi in the cave, he jumped to the sea and nobody ever saw him again.

Cala Macarella

Cala Macarella is another paradisiacal beach of Menorca. It’s in the south coast and is one of the most crowded virgin calas during summer vacation as it has many services and a close parking. The photo of Cala Macarella is at the fore of many postal cards of the island.

Para llegar solamente hace falta tomar el Camí de Sant Joan de Missa desde Ciudadela y seguir los carteles que se ven en la carretera. El trayecto desde Ciudadela hasta Macarella puede llevarte unos 20-25 minutos en coche, y algo más de 1 hora en bici.

Punta Nati Lighthouse

The Punta Nati Lighthouse is the closest lighthouse to Ciutadella (excluding Sa Farola). For me is one of the best places in Menorca to watch the sunset. This lighthouse was built in 1912 in order to avoid the continuous shipwrecks of the north coast of Ciutadella.

Se puede llegar por una carretera espectacular tanto en coche como en bici. El camino es de dos direcciones pero increíblemente estrecho y con dos carriles bici en un tramo bastante largo. Si circulas con tu vehículo debes ir con mucho cuidado ya que es muy fácil encontrarse con un ciclista en cualquier curva.
