Cala en Turqueta
Cala en Turqueta is arguably the most beautiful cala (cove) on Menorca. The beach is set in a deep, rocky inlet with pine forests to all sides. The sand here is fine and near white whilst the crystalline water is a beautiful mix of blues and turquoise. This is where the beach gets its name, and it certainly lives up to it.
The beach is sheltered from most of the wind and waves making it a lovely spot for a swim. You can also snorkel around the rocky ledges at either side. However, there is no lifeguard service, or any other facilities for that matter. Cala en Turqueta remains very much a beautifully pristine cove.
Despite there not being anything in the way of cafes or amenities Cala en Turqueta is still one of the most popular beaches on Menorca. Given its small size this can mean it gets a little busy during the summer months. What does keep the crowds down is the 10 minute or so walk from the car park. This is also where you will find the toilets.
Our advice is to get to the beach early. Not only will you avoid the crowds but you will get the best of the sun, which tends to dip behind the trees in the late afternoon.
