Cala des Talaier
Cala des Talaier lies roughly 11 kilometres southeast of Ciutadella, and is as unspoilt a beach as you will find anywhere on Menorca. Here, fine white sand meets waters so bright they seem to be lit from beneath, and so shallow it’s possible to walk out into them a significant way to explore the rock formations that sit on either side without having to swim.
Just 80 metres wide by 50 metres long, Cala des Talaier is so small the nearest car parks are approximately 15 minutes (two kilometres) away on foot, either at Platges Son Saura, or at Cala en Turqueta.
The need to walk doesn’t put everyone off, and the beach can get busy at the height of the summer. At this time of year, you might be lucky enough to find a hawker selling bottles of water, the rest of the year you should make sure you bring everything you will need for the day with you to enjoy the beach and its stunning bay location to the max.
