Cala Mitjana (Cala Mitjaneta)
Located in a wide rocky inlet on the south coast of Menorca are two of the islands most beautiful beaches; Cala Mitjana and the tiny cove of Cala Mitjaneta. Here you will find a bay with brilliant turquoise sea which contrasts with the low white cliffs surrounding it. All around the beaches and bay are pine and olive groves and there is virtually no sign of development (which we tend to regard as a good point, but might not be ideal for everyone).
Despite its secluded feel Cala Mitjana is relatively simple to get to with a car park located near Cala Galdana from which there is a 20 minute walk. This is just enough to prevent the beach from ever becoming really busy and out of season it is generally quiet.
The crystal clear water and shelter of the bay here make both Cala Mitjaneta and Mitjana ideal for swimming and snorkelling. The beach at Cala Mitjana is made of lovely, soft sand and whilst it isn’t exceptionally wide it does go back a fair way. Cala Mitjaneta, just around the headland is tiny but even prettier - well worth the extra hundred metres and scrabble down.
