Cala Macarelleta is recognised as being so beautiful that it sits within a protected Area Natural d’Especial Interes. Owing much of its recent fame to none other than an advertisement for a beer, it is nonetheless a beach which any tourist board would be happy to flaunt, and with good reason.

At Cala Macarelleta a picture-perfect view of white sands and turquoise waters vie for attention against the dark green pines that lead to it and the light greys of the limestone rocks that rise up to 30 metres in height.

Situated on the southwest coast of Menorca, Cala Macarelleta is located a short five minute (500 metre) walk from the similarly named Cala Macarella, along a cliff path offering further exquisite views. Not only do visitors therefore get two beach breaks instead of one, but they can make use of the toilets and dining facilities that Macarella has, but Macarelleta lacks.

If you’re on the squeamish side when it comes to nudity, be aware that Cala Macarelleta is often frequented by Menorca’s nudist community.

Beautiful Beach

What a beach - our favourite on Menorca!  Well worth the walk which results in fewer crowds, though being small it can still be busy.  Most beach goers were naturist when we visited in June - like many Spanish beaches - and the white sand and turquoise waters made a refreshing skinny dip just sublime.  Love it, definitely in my world top 10!
